Despite the observed good evolution of the COVID outbreak control, if for any reason, it would be impossible to do the conference in real life, we won't switch to virtual. It will be postponed to 2024.

Our commitment : if for any reason we are forced to postpone the 2023 edition, we commit ourselves to communicate this decision as soon as possible to the speakers. Accepted speakers would remain accepted for 2024 but are also free to cancel their postponed participation.
