Due to unforeseen circumstances regarding COVID-19 outbreak we will adapt our activities and prepare ourselves for one of the following scenarios:
1) There will be no restrictions at the global level - everyone will physically participate at the conference as usual. We are hoping for this scenario considering the tradition of plenary work during the conference as well as attractive and lively stand-up poster presentations promoting vivid discussion and maintaining the positive spirit during the conference, which is already a recognizable trademark that ensures our colleagues return each time.
2) There will be travelling restrictions in some countries - for such participants online presentations will be organised.
3) In a worst-case scenario, if most of the participants will not be able to attend the conference, an online KOD conference will be organised. If the online scenarios occur, we will offer special reduced participation fees to the participants.

Please inform Your colleagues about the KOD 2021 Conference.
