For this year, OSFC 2020, we had planned to launch the conference in South Korea on an island named Jeju-do. It's quite a famous island for vacationing in the APAC region. Most people would ask "Why South Korea?" The reason for that is that the island has a particular visa restriction, which allows the most attendees to enter Jeju visa-free. The island itself has excellent public transportation, tourism friendly, fast internet connectivity, and offers cost-efficient accommodation for students.

Due to the latest news about the COVID-19 outbreak, we will cancel our plans for this year. We will postpone the Jeju-do conference for fall 2021.

Aside from that, we will try to run this year's conference at the beginning of December in real life somewhere in Europe or as a virtual summit. We will keep you updated as soon as we have more details. Until then, wash your hands and distance yourself from others to reduce the impact of the pandemic!

Stay healthy!
