No final decision yet - but hybrid format likely.
''Given the uncertainties associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, we are closely looking at having a hybrid format that includes both in-person and virtual options. The Organizing Committee and IASSA Council are committed to do everything possible to ensure that everyone who would like to participate in the Congress is able to do so, either in-person or online. Although we still plan to have a significant portion of the meeting in Arkhangelsk, we are currently exploring options and costs of providing participation alternatives. We are aware that having a hybrid conference may affect the costs of attendance and the ability to have a meaningful conference experience for all participants. We realize that we are constrained by the technology on the ground in Arkhangelsk and via the Internet. Given these considerations, we are working on a most practical solution.
At this time we have not made any final decisions on exact details of the format. The ICASS X Organizing Committee meets every few weeks and will be regularly updating you on our decision process as more information becomes available.''
