“CYBATHLON Symposium in New Interactive Virtual Format on 17–18 September 2020, as kick-off into the CYBATHLON 2020
In view of the current international situation we have decided to organise the CYBATHLON and CYBATHLON Symposium 2020 in a new global format, mixing virtual and physical races and events. After consulting with CYBATHLON teams and Symposium keynote speakers, this decision was reached jointly with ETH Zurich and the CYBATHLON Organising Committee. The CYBATHLON Organising Committee is working intensively on a new global format scheduled for autumn 2020, and further information will follow shortly via the CYBATHLON channels.
As a kick-off into this new CYBATHLON era, the CYBATHLON Symposium will take place according to the initially planned program, but in a new, entirely virtual format with a special focus on maintaining interactivity during talks, posters/demos and the podium session. To better comply with time differences among participants, it will take place over two days on 17–18 September 2020.
We are also excited to inform you that taking advantage of this change imposed by the COVID-19 pandemic, participation to the virtual CYBATHLON Symposium will be made free, in order to make it accessible to a larger public, and especially to students. We will contact those of you who already paid the registration fee for a reimbursement over the next weeks. More information will soon be available on our website
We thank all our partners, speakers and registered participants for their understanding and their continuous inspiration for moving people and technology together.
We are looking forward to a reimagined and exciting CYBATHLON and CYBATHLON Symposium 2020! Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
