We have received several questions regarding COVID-19 emergency and its possible consequences on travel, participation in the conference, and its organization. The Steering Committee, after discussions of the situation, has drawn the following changes in BEC2020 organization. The conference will be held as a hybrid conference. The session tracks will be locally running Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech) premises for those who have the possibility to participate on-site. The videoconference will be available for those who are not able to participate on-site. Due to the organizational changes, the deadline for submission of papers is extended to July 20th. This is final, no other deadline extensions will follow. The extensions of other related deadlines are available on the conference website.
In case you have already submitted a paper, you are welcome to improve it until the referred date.
