UPDATE from IMS
Plans are underway for the quadrennial Bernoulli–IMS World Congress, to be held in Seoul, Republic of Korea, August 17–21, 2020. We have 16 world-renowned speakers lined up for the named and plenary lectures, and 40 invited sessions, as well as a special lecture series documenting a variety of modern research topics with in-depth uses and applications of these disciplines as they relate to science, industrial innovation, and society as a whole.
However, with the COVID-19 coronavirus in the news, there is ongoing concern. The IMS and BS leadership is keeping a close eye on the latest World Health Organization guidelines and recommendations. WHO currently advises against the application of any travel or trade restrictions. If the control measures imposed by China and many other countries continue containing the outbreak, there is every hope that the crisis will be over by August.
WHO warns against panic and over-reaction, which can cause severe economic hardship and disruption. So we are, for now, proceeding confidently with the expectation that WC2020 will take place as planned. We will, of course, continue to monitor the situation and will update you accordingly.
