The 16th International ISKO conference


The ISKO 2020 conference is cancelled. The 2020 conference proceedings will be published as planned.

In the light of the development of the Corona crisis, we have taken the decision together with the ISKO Executive Board to cancel the physical ISKO 2020. We have also decided that we will not replace it with a virtual conference. Instead we have been awarded to host the ISKO 2022 in Denmark at the University of Aalborg. We look forward and hope to see many of you in Denmark in 2022.

The 2020 conference proceedings will be published as planned, and all accepted papers and posters will be included. 

During the coming weeks we will update the ISKO 2020 website with information about the proceedings, accepted papers, conference program committee, key note speakers, etc. for this year's conference. Later we will announce the dates for the ISKO 2022 conference, conference theme, submission deadlines, etc.

Thank you for your patience and support. We hope to meet you in 2022, and that you are all well in these challenging times.

Best wishes
