[Apologies for cross-posting]

Deadline extension for author submissions: 8 April 2020
Virtual workshop: 29 June - 1 July 2020

Dear list members,

Due to the current coronavirus situation, we have decided that FMA2020
will run this year as a virtual event.

This means that there will be no physical workshop taking place in
Aalborg on the published dates of the workshop (29 June to 1 July 2020).
You should therefore not plan to come to Aalborg on the dates of the

Instead, we plan to run a number of live streamed events on the planned
dates of the workshop that will provide authors of papers with the
opportunity to present their work virtually (e.g., we are working on
setting up virtual scheduled poster sessions at which participants can
chat live with authors).

In addition, authors will be expected to provide a poster or abstract
version of their submissions at the time of registration, to be posted
on the website during the virtual workshop. These summaries of the
accepted papers will be used by authors when presenting their work in
the virtual poster sessions during the workshop.

Because of the disruption caused by the coronavirus, we are extending
the deadline for submission of papers to 8 April 2020 (AOE). Authors of
accepted papers will be notified by 10 May.

The registration fee for the conference will be reduced to zero, but at
least one author of each accepted paper will be expected to register for
the conference by the registration deadline, which has been extended to
22 May 2020. At least one registered author for each paper should be
prepared to contribute actively to the virtual workshop (e.g., by being
available for live-chat during one of the virtual poster sessions).
Also, as mentioned above, at time of registration, a poster or abstract
version of each paper will need to be provided for posting on the
website during the workshop.

Provided we receive enough submissions of sufficient quality, all
accepted papers will be published by Springer as a volume in their CCIS
series. We are aiming to keep to the current schedule for publishing
these proceedings (i.e., deadline for camera-ready submission will be 22
July). We will also continue to use the easychair submission system that
has already been set up and is accessible through the FMA 2020 website

We hope that before the end of 2020 we will be able to run a physical
workshop in Denmark, consisting of activities such as panel sessions,
keynotes, poster sessions, and concerts, allowing members of the
community to network and share ideas face-to-face.

Best wishes and stay safe!
