Statement: COVID-19/Corona

The current policies around the corona pandemic as well as their uncertain duration cause a lot of challenges, especially for advanced education organisers, and require flexible evaluations and decisions on the realisation of presence events.

For this reason, we are planning the upcoming conferences in the second half of 2020 and OOP 2021 in constant communication with the event locations and health authorities.
For SIGS DATACOM, it is important to balance whether we can offer you the high-quality conference experience you are expecting from us with the respective conditions and requirements for the protection of all participants.

Therefore, we decide individually for each of our events whether it will take place as a presence event at the planned date or whether there is a more suitable new date. If both options do not offer a satisfying solution for participants, speakers and sponsors, we will check whether the event can take place as a digital event and which offers an appropriate alternative of knowledge transfer and interaction.

In rare cases we have to cancel events and are confident that we will be able to hold them again the following year.

We ask for your understanding if the planning of events changes, sometimes at short notice, it is not always up to us to have a direct influence on this, but often it is also due to general decisions made by business and politics regarding the handling of the pandemic.

Current planning status of SIGS DATACOM conferences (as of August 1, 2020) can be found in our full statement, which is linked below.
