TE2020 and the Corona virus

The global outbreak of the Corona virus has caused major disruption in our lives, work and business. On behalf of the ISTE board I hope you and your family are safe and well.

In the last few months, the ISTE board and the local organising committee had intensive discussions about what to do with the 27thInternational Conference on Transdisciplinary Engineering (TE2020), scheduled for 6 – 10 July 2020 in Warsaw, under the present circumstances.

We have concluded that, in the interest of the health and safety of our members and the general community, TE2020 cannot go ahead in its face-to-face format. This is disappointing, but in our view the only responsible decision.

In the coming weeks we will review the feasibility of running the conference in virtual mode. We have a few ideas that we like to explore. The paper review process, currently underway for TE2020, will continue and authors will receive feedback. We are in discussion with IOS Press to see if we can publish the papers in the Advances in Transdisciplinary Engineering series. We will need to charge a nominal fee for this service.

The option of publishing papers in a special edition of one of the associated journals listed on the conference website https://te2020-warsaw.pw.edu.pl/ also remains open.

Please stay tuned for further details regarding the new format for TE2020 and thank you for your understanding. Of course, you can always contact us if you have any concerns.
