Dear students and colleagues,

We would like to thank all the applicants (more than 320), their
supervisors and the sponsors for their continued support and interest
in ICVSS 2020 even in these unprecedented times.

Given the continued threat of COVID-19 and the health guidance
information from our government authorities, the organising committee
has decided to postpone ICVSS 2020 until a later date when it will be
safe to travel again.

Other scientific meetings have chosen the virtual option but we
strongly believe that ICVSS is unique because of the real (academic
and social) interaction of students with lecturers and researchers
from industry. We will therefore await a date when we can meet again
physically and safely.

All applications and reference letters received so far will be
considered valid for the selection of the school when we are able to
fix a date.

We would like to thank you all for your patience and we really hope to
be back soon with better news. Our thoughts and very best wishes are
with you all.

The ICVSS School Directors Roberto Cipolla, Giovanni Maria Farinella,
Sebastiano Battiato
