The ISMA-USD conference organisation is continuously monitoring the situation with respect to COVID-19. We can already announce that ISMA-USD 2020 will take place as planned on 7-9 September 2020. We are currently evaluating different conference formats, including the (normal) in-person event, a virtual conference, or a hybrid (combined in-person & virtual) conference. In any case, the conference will not be postponed or cancelled. This means that the proceedings of the conference will be published, independent of the format of the event.
