COVID-19 Safe Plan

Organizers are closely monitoring the COVID-19 global situation and are planning for multiple scenarios including face to face, blended or fully online. A final decision will be made prior to registration opening.

UPDATE (25 Aug 2020): Virtual Presentations, and attendance, will be available for LAK21. This includes Workshops, Long and Short Research Papers, Practitioner Papers, Posters and Demos.
