Conference // Lisbon 2020 // POSTPONED

May 28, 2020

The ICDAD conference and annual meeting originally planned for October 2020 in Lisbon has been postponed to 2021 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

The theme for the 2021 conference will remain the same—"Revivals"—and all papers submitted to the original Call for Papers will be considered for inclusion. The CFP will be renewed in 2021 as well, and the board welcomes additional proposals at that time.

The entire ICDAD board is disappointed to have to postpone the meeting in Lisbon, but the wellbeing and safety of members must be the priority. In place of the meeting in Lisbon, ICDAD will host a virtual conference this fall, with a theme and CFP forthcoming.

Conference // Lisbon 2020 // CfP deadline postponed to June 30, 2020

April 27, 2020

Due to the pandemic situation, the ICDAD board decided to postpone the deadline of the annual call for conference papers to June 30, 2020.

As this is a rapidly-evolving situation, it is not possible to provide advice about travel in the near future. Also, we do not know what the financial situation in the museums will be after shorter or longer periods of closedown. For the moment we have decided to go on planning the conference in Lisbon on October 14-16, 2020. Therefore, we encourage you to participate in the round of call for papers and would like to inform you that alternatives are considered currently for the conference timing and format. You will be informed by the end of May about all possible changes in the plans.

Stay safe!
