ICEI 2020 – ONLINE MODE
Dear colleague/ICEI friend,
Thank you very much for your interest in our 5th International Conference on European Integration 2020 (ICEI 2020); we appreciate your friendship and popularity with ICEI.
In March, when we have informed you about our decision to postpone ICEI 2020 from May to December, we all hoped that the covid-19 situation would calm down, and we believed that Christmas time would be the time when everything will be behind us, and nothing will prevent the organisation of the conference.
What do you have saved in your diaries for date 3rd and 4th December 2020? Yes, we know it – ICEI 2020. Yes, you are right, don't worry, this doesn't change like other things. Unfortunately, man proposes, and God disposes, and the covid-19 situation is not developing as we would like, on the contrary, what impact on the organisation of ICEI 2020 in traditional offline mode.
Concerning the unfavourable epidemiological covid-19 situation since the beginning of September, we continuously monitor, analyse and evaluate developments both in the Czech Republic and abroad, and unfortunately not only restrictions at our government level and therefore at the university level, but also restrictions in neighbouring countries.
Therefore, due to the ever-changing situation surrounding the organisation of events related to the covid-19, we decided to hold ICEI 2020 in online mode.
With a heavy heart, we leave the traditional offline mode of the conference, but from a professional, but mostly realistic point of view, we consider this step reasonable without underestimating the possible health risks for all participants and interested parties, which also applies to you.
We continue to prepare ICEI with the knowledge that it will only take place in an online environment. Unfortunately, we will lose personal contact with you, our participants, ICEI friends. We believe that currently, it is the best possible and compromise solution for all of us. We understand that you may not be able to attend the conference in person, but we hope you can still participate and meet us online. We hope this will provide you with flexibility and options in participating at the conference.
Thank you for your understanding and upcoming cooperation = nothing ends, ICEI will be, but otherwise :-)
You will be informed immediately of the next steps = participation questionnaire.
Hold on and keep us in favour!
