EDIL 2020 Update & Online Announcement

Another update on this conference.

Association for the Advancement of Computing in Education

Dear Michael Barbour:

The safety and well-being of the AACE membership is our top priority. As with many other conferences around the world, EDIL is faced with a difficult dilemma. We are considering many factors to make an informed final decision regarding the EDIL 2020 Conference.

There are also obvious financial and logistical obligations to take in consideration – not only to the Renaissance Amsterdam but most importantly to you, the AACE community. This dilemma is complicated by the conference hotel not agreeing that travel restrictions will apply after June 1 and therefore will not cancel its hotel contract without a major financial penalty to AACE. Negotiations have been underway the past 3 weeks to mitigate the financial damages to AACE.

The Good News: EDIL 2020 Online

It is of utmost importance that the AACE community annually gather to discuss the latest research, practices, and innovations. This is why we and the Executive Committee have been working diligently to also prepare an EDIL Online 2020 conference for our attendees that opt not to travel to Amsterdam and need extra time to prepare paper submissions.

In the coming weeks, you will receive detailed information via email and on the EDIL website regarding EDIL 2020 Online — submissions, presenting virtually, participating, Proceedings publication and more! Along with 100s of concurrent synchronous and 100s of asynchronous sessions offered, the Online Conference will include live streamed:

  • Daily Keynote Talks from top leaders in the field
  • Invited Speakers
  • Innovators Playground Presentations
  • Spotlight Sessions: Practical Applications, Strategies & Solutions for Online Learning
  • Featured Panels
  • Symposia
  • Special Interest Group (SIG) Webinars & Meetings
  • AACE 180 Presentations for Poster Presenters
  • Full, Brief and Best Practices Sessions
  • Award Paper Presentations
  • Workshops

EDIL Online 2020 Submissions Due: May 4, 2020

We are taking this situation very seriously as the health and safety of our attendees is our top priority. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with all those directly affected by the corona virus.

We expect to reach a final decision regarding EDIL Amsterdam 2020 shortly and will provide an update directly regarding registration, travel, hotel and other details soon. Our staff greatly appreciates your patience and understanding while we work to resolve this delicate matter.

Stay tuned!
