Dear authors and participants,
We thank you for your interest in Petra 2020, Corfu Island, Greece,
from June 30 to July 3.
In response to COVID-19 and conducting the PETRA 2020 conference in Corfu Island, Greece, we conducted
a survey earlier this month to get your feedback on how to proceed with the conference.
We have been monitoring the progress of the pandemic, and we are at a juncture where we have to make
hard decisions. In the US and other countries like the UK, Sweden, Italy, things still are not doing well.
There is also much uncertainty surrounding travel permission to enter Greece without quarantine and size
restrictions in physical gatherings in Greece. Moving the conference to late July also presents similar
difficulties. And moving the conference to October and December presents an issue in Organizing Petra 2021,
which is planned to be held in late June 2021, possibly (not definite yet) on the Island of Rhodes, Greece.
We are also considering the possibility of PETRA 2021 in Athens or again in Corfu.
With all this in mind, PETRA 2020 will be an ALL VIRTUAL CONFERENCE to ensure timely publication
and dissemination of the work submitted and accepted at a reduced registration cost, as a service to the scientific community.
FORMAT: We will follow a format where each contributed paper, both oral and poster presentations,
including the workshop papers, is expected to submit a pre-recorded video of the paper presentation.
We have made an agreement with ACM that this video will also be hosted along with the papers in the ACM ICPS proceedings.
Adding a video presentation adds value to your work, enhances feedback, and dissemination quality.
