When CoVID-19 struck, the PanSIG team was just finishing up the vetting of the presentation proposals for the conference. After we made the decision to cancel the conference, we were faced with the question of what to do with these abstracts. Knowing that these abstracts represented a wide range of research efforts of a lot of people, we decided to provide these presenters with an alternative opportunity to do their presentations. After much discussion, we decided that the most straightforward way would be to ask them to record their presentations and upload them to YouTube, and PanSIG would issue a handbook with abstracts and links on June 20th.
Why June 20th? This year, we moved the PanSIG registration site from ConfTool to the framework created by Gary Ross for the JALTCALL2020 conference. As it happens, the JALTCALL conference will also be moving online. We decided that June 20th would allow us enough time to learn from the JALTCALL SIG’s experience. We are also inviting SIGs to organize online forums on that weekend.
