Hybrid NENE2020 (August 3, 2020)

In light of Covid-19 situation and associated uncertainties, we decided to organise NENE 2020 as a hybrid conference that will offer both in-person and remote participation.

Hence, we introduced a reduced registration fee of 350 € for remote participation.
The remote participation fee includes:

Oral contributions of remote participants will be arranged either live through Zoom or in a form of pre-recorded presentations, based on presenter’s preferences.

*Posters of remote participants will be displayed both printed, for in-person audience, and in electronic form for all conference attendees. Printing of posters for remote participants will be performed by the conference organisers at no extra cost. The authors are encouraged to indicate their preferred communication channel on the poster to enable communication between authors and all conference attendees.

We hope that this will make your decision to participate in the conference and present your work easier. Please register here.
