DATE 2022 fully virtual event

DATE 2022: fully virtual event -- ONSITE days moved ONLINE

We have been planning a special format for DATE 2022, aiming at bringing back the community together after two editions online, trying to balance the uncertainty of the situation and the desire to be partially back in presence. A special program has been organized to start the conference with two days in presence, full of outstanding talks and moments to meet and chat.
However, the current situation of the covid-19 infections across Europe and the consequent travelling/quarantine restrictions adopted by governments, companies and institutions have a strong impact on our health concerns and travelling opportunities, for speakers as well as attendees.
The "in presence" experience remains a fundamental aspect of any conference and of DATE in the specific, for its many networking moments, as well as for the social activities, however the safety of the community is once more a priority. Therefore, after thoughtfull discussion, the DATE Steering Committee opted to move DATE 2022 to a completely virtual event, moving the program of the first two days online also.

Although there is no way to mitigate the disappointment of not being able to meet in person, we trust the rich and interesting program will bring us together online to comment and contribute to the exciting talks and conversations with the speakers and authors of full DATE 2022 program.
