Press Release: Virtual VuFind Summit 2020 Announcement

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Virtual VuFind Summit 2020 Announced

Leipzig, Germany and Villanova, Pennsylvania - May 26, 2020 - We are very happy to announce that we are preparing a Virtual VuFind Summit 2020 in a joint effort of the organizers of the Villanova VuFind Summit and the organizers of the International VuFind Summit 2021 in order to have a fantastic community event in late summer this year despite the difficult circumstances we all are experiencing right now because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the current restrictions in traveling and social distancing - not to mention the health risks - it is impractical to have the regular Villanova VuFind Summit in Mid-October take place in person. Also the International VuFind Summit 2020 in Leipzig, scheduled for September 30 until October 2, was postponed to 2021 for the same reason. As a result we see this as a chance to bring the international VuFind community together in one event which will be held entirely online as a virtual conference.

The Virtual VuFind Summit will take place from September 29 until October 1, 2020 and will be open for workshops, lightning talks, project presentations and other forms of participation.

A Call for Papers will be opened soon soon! To receive the latest information on this and other aspects of the event, watch the VuFind wiki for updates: https://vufind.org/wiki/community:conferences:summit_2020
