IJCB 2020 organizing committee update

End of May update:

NOTE: The IJCB 2020 organizing committee has been closely monitoring
the development of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, we have decided
that IJCB 2020 will be held as a virtual conference this year. We
remain committed to have each accepted paper presented and publish the
conference proceedings as planned.

Earlier update:

Dear Colleagues,

The IJCB 2020 organizing committee is continuously monitoring the
COVID-19 situation and is aware that the pandemic affects everyone's
research activities. To give researchers enough time to prepare
high-quality submissions for IJCB 2020, we have decided to extend the
second submission deadline to June 8th, 2020. The updated deadline
applies to new submissions as well as papers that received a revision
decision in the first round.

Detailed information on the deadline extension is available from the
IJCB website: https://ieee-biometrics.org/ijcb2020/

We are aware that receiving timely feedback on submissions is
paramount for authors and that many have already submitted their work
in the second IJCB submission round. We will, therefore, make sure
that any papers submitted to CMT by the initial April 6th deadline
will be reviewed in time for announcing the decision on June 9, 2020
(or earlier).

Please note that the IJCB 2020 organizing committee will ensure that
the authors of accepted papers will be able to present their work and
that the proceedings will be published as planned.

Do not hesitate to contact us in case you have any questions.

With kind regards,

IJCB 2020 General and Program Chairs
