FLOODrisk2020 Virtual Conference Information

      | More

Re-opening registration

As per our communication of December 2020, the FLOODrisk2020 conference will now take place from 21st to 25th June 2021 online. We have now updated the conference website on www.floodrisk2020.net with additional information on revised fees, new key dates and the organisation and format of this online conference.

Web-based gateway

The online conference will centre around a web-based gateway that will give delegates access to virtual rooms where they will be able to view video or audio presentations of the papers and posters, submit questions and attend live question and answer sessions with oral presentation authors.

Virtual exhibition

Access will also be granted to a virtual exhibition hall where partners, sponsors and exhibitors will be able to publish posters, brochures, video presentation and access live chat with delegates from two weeks prior to the conference, throughout the conference and after the conference. A programme of pre-recorded presentations and live question and answer sessions will also be organised for all exhibitors to encourage discussions with delegates.

Enabling virtual meetings and interaction

The web gateway will also include a networking area enabling delegates to contact their peers via a messaging service. Delegates would also be able to pitch ideas, prior to the event and invite delegates to attend live pitching sessions online during the conference.

Instructions to authors

All authors will be required to upload a video or audio presentation of their paper or poster no later than 2 weeks prior to the conference opening date when access to all presentations will be opened for all delegates. This should ensure that delegates have ample time to view presentations and submit their questions ahead of the live question and answer and discussion sessions, a programme of which will be published in due course. Access to videos/audios will remain open throughout the duration of the conference and after the conference.

We will provide help for all presenters on how to record a video or audio presentation and upload it to the web gateway.

We will strive to make the process of participating in this virtual conference as easy as possible, as enjoyable as possible and as rewarding as possible for all involved. To this end, we have decided to extend the deadline for paper submission by one month to the 11th February 2021, when the video/audio presentation system will also be opened. Please note that the registration to attend the virtual conference is now open on page www.floodrisk2020.net/registration/.

Please see page www.floodrisk2020.net/covid-19-announcement/ for more information, in particular new key dates and Frequently Asked Questions.

FLOODrisk2020 COVID-19 update

      | More

Dear All,

As the COVID-19 crisis continues to affect many people and countries around the world, we continue to review all possibilities for delivering the FLOODrisk2020 conference. 

As you know we have already had to delay the conference from its original date in September 2020, to the new dates from 21st to 25th June 2021. Current restrictions in Europe and in particular in Budapest, Hungary, and the real possibility that those, or a version of those, restrictions will continue well into the first half of 2021, means we must, at least, review alternatives for hosting our conference.

We are currently looking at a number of options for this, from hosting the conference online to delaying the conference once more, and other options.

We ask kindly for your patience whilst we consider all these options. We will be in touch as quickly as possible with more detailed information as to future plans for the conference. We will be in touch again by 18th December 2020 with our decision on the future of the FLOODrisk2020 conference. All key deadlines, including the notification of acceptance and full paper submission opening, are in the meantime put on hold.

In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any question.

Best regards

The FLOODrisk2020 organising committee.
