Dear Colleagues, dear ICSO participants,
The pandemic Covid-19 remains a major concern at least until the beginning of 2021 and to guarantee security, continuity and quality of ICSO2020 conference, the choice was made to move to 100% virtual event (using Whova® application and Zoom® meetings functions).
We are aware of all the social aspects that will be lost with this virtual format (no memorable gala dinner this time) but the priority was also not to delay the presentation and publication of your work.
The formula that has been selected should nevertheless guarantee an excellent quality of interaction between participants even behind your screens (see the 100% virtual specific page for a description of the practical aspects) …
Furthermore, the Proceedings will become available as usually to all participants during the conference and within some months they will be available in the SPIE DIgital Library in Open Access that ensures maximum exposure.
We wish you to stay safe and healthy.
On behalf of CNES and ESA ICSO chairs
