Foremost, the FOIS 2020 organizing committee hopes you are all in good health and not too low spirits in the present situation!

The updated deadline for submission to FOIS is MAY 13.

Though it is not possible at the moment to reach a final decision about the shape of  the conference event itself, we can announce that the organisation team of FOIS 2020 is committed to publishing the FOIS proceedings with IOS Press in 2020, in electronic format with permanent open access.

Thus, the paper submission and selection process will run just as expected. FOIS will happen as a face-to-face event in Bolzano when it is safe to travel. Ideally, in September 2020 but otherwise at a later date in 2021, in coordination with other BOSK events.

Physical attendance at FOIS 2020 will be optional for the authors, regardless of whether the conference will happen in September 2020 or at some later date in 2021.

We warmly invite you all again to submit your papers to FOIS 2020.
