CLARIN 2020 in Times of COVID-19

Due to the new Coronavirus dynamics, global travel patterns will be radically different for a longer period and flexibility in formats for participation to international events will become the new normality.
How precisely this will impact the CLARIN Annual Conference is currently unclear and whether the Conference will take place in Madrid, in a virtual variant or in a mix of formats will be discussed at a later stage, but a decision is to be expected before the Summer break.
Anyhow, irrespective of the Conference format, authors who submitted papers for CLARIN 2020 can be sure that the peer review process will take place as envisaged and that all accepted papers will be published in a similar way as in previous years.
Over the coming months the regular CLARIN communication channels will be used to keep the community informed and the Conference Web page will always provide the latest details.
