The ICFNDs 2020 team is closely monitoring the status of the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on conferences and travel. We also recognize the legitimate concerns of authors and participants regarding their own health and safety. While we prefer to have an in-person conference to the maximum extent possible, we will decide on a particular format for the conference based on information available closer to the conference dates. Regardless of the eventual format for the conference, we will allow authors to present their accepted work remotely. Please contact the executive chair. Please stay tuned!
