ECSCW 2021 conference planned to be held remote+

February 17, 2021

After several inquiries, we can announce that the conference will take place from 7th to 11th June 2021. We will offer possibilities for remote participation including a video/audio-channel to attend the presentations. Thereby we want to make sure that everyone from around the world can participate in the conference, despite difficulties caused by the COVID-19 outbreak. Nevertheless, we are carefully observing the development of the pandemics and are considering options for in-person attendance as well – at least for those, who expect to be able to travel in June 2021 and would like to join us in Zurich. At the same time, we want to make clear that the conference will be free of charge for EUSSET members. A registration will be necessary and we will open it in April 2021. We are looking forward to meeting you all – be it here in Zurich or virtually wherever you are.
