Due to current and anticipated circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the PSi 2020 Organizing Committee and PSi Board of Directors have reached the joint decision to postpone the conference for a year, to June or July of 2021.
This was not an easy choice, as a great deal of effort and cooperation has already been invested in the conference, and the theme of “Crises of Care” is now more current and acute than ever. We have therefore decided to keep the same general theme (“Crises of Care”), dramaturgy (conferences-within-conference, the Streams) and collaborative agenda (within and between the Streams) in the conference next year, at the same time allowing for an approach responsive to the dramatic and extreme changes in our social and private lives. Those whose proposals have already been accepted will continue to have priority acceptance for the 2021 conference, with the possibility to revise their presentations before a new CFP is announced.
More information on details of the postponed conference and possible adjustments to the theme and dramaturgy will be provided this July. We deeply appreciate your patience and effort both at this time and from the beginning. We hope to be able to welcome you all to Rijeka next year, and hope that you remain safe and well in the meantime.
For any questions, please contact Marlena Brdar at firstname.lastname@example.org or the curatorial team of your Stream.
