DEADLINE EXTENDED - Call for Abstracts: 4th Euro-Mediterranean Conference “Visioning MED 2000+”, 9-10 October 2020, Athens
We hope you and your family are remaining safe and healthy during this largely unpredictableand turbulent time.
COVID-19 pandemic has considerably affected our personal lives and work / mobility pattern. It has also revealed,in a rather dramatic way,the severe unpredictable challenges and potential risks ahead, withunknown repercussions forthe global community from a social and economic, but also environmentalviewpoint.
However, it has also unveiled the human and technological capabilities for adjustment and the new ICT-enabled ways ofworking, socializing, entertaining, teaching, managing etc., rendering thus communication infrastructure and the Internet the “veins” for our seamless interaction in the ‘social distancing’context.
Within such an environment, the themes of the 4th Euro-Mediterranean Conference on“VISIONING MED 2020+ / Mediterranean in Transition: Preserving the Past - Preparing for the Future”(http://www.smartbluecity.com/) become even more relevant.Continuing our fertile dialogue on the variety of challenges, already witnessed or predicted which, among others,have also beat Mediterranean in an admittedly hard way; andtracing conscious ways out from potential regional or global crises is at present an important contribution from our scientific community.
We are thankful to all those who have already submitted their abstracts for the 4th Euro-Mediterranean Conference.
However, given the current circumstancesbut also the many requests from colleagues, the Organizing Committee has decided to extend the deadline for abstract submissionuntil June 15, 2020.
New important dates of the Conference are as follows:
- 15 June 2020: Abstract submission
- 30 June 2020: Notification of acceptance to authors
- 15 July 2020: Deadline for early-bird registration

Furthermore, the Organizing Committee, taking into account the current COVID-19 uncertainty, has decided to offer the chance for both Face-to-Face and online participation in the Conference. More details on both options and online registration is available at: http://www.smartbluecity.com/register.
