ECSA 2020
Mon 14 - Fri 18 September 2020 L'Aquila, Italy
Virtual ECSA 2020(Mon 6 Jul 2020)

Dear colleagues, software architects and all those sympathetic to the topic,

This is to inform you that ECSA 2020 will be hosted virtually from September 14-18 2020.

What I learned is that in a period of uncertainties, it is important to come out with solutions that can create certainties. While we were all hoping to welcome you to L’Aquila in September, we still do not have (and nobody has) the due guarantees about the COVID-19 situation in mid-September. After discussing this point with the ECSA 2020 Organizing Committee as well as with the ECSA Steering Committee, I inform you that ECSA 2020 will be run virtually.

We have already designed a virtual conference model that will maximize discussion, interactiveness, and will also give you some experience of the city and our culture. It will not be the same as a physical conference, still, it will provide you all with the instruments to get in contact with other researchers and will also represent a concrete link to our culture and the city.

Meanwhile, we received (so far) 98 contributions to all tracks. So, we expect a vibrant and rich program.

As already stated in my previous announcement, all accepted contributions will be published by Springer. We have already initiated the publication process, which will be completed by August 03rd.

See you all in September!

All the best,
Henry Muccini
ECSA 2020 General Chair


Equality, freedom, and open exchange of ideas must be the cornerstones of any community, and society as a whole. As the European Conference on Software Architecture community, we condemn racism and intolerance and strive to elevate the ideas and voices of Black, Indigenous and People of Colour who have been historically excluded because of systemic racism. We are aware that much work still needs to be done and we are committed to providing a safe, welcoming environment for all. We are ready to listen, learn more where we need to and improve continuously where we should as the software architecture and engineering community.
