Greetings,

With everyone's health and safety in mind, we are adapting some of the 
ways in which IARIA conferences are organized:
1. The submission deadlines (and other dates such as notification and 
camera ready) are rather flexible in order to account for possibly 
limited author access to the academic/industrial premises where the 
research work is taking place.
2. During the conference, authors will be able to present their work via 
pre-recorded videos and/or conference calls (in case they opt to avoid 
travel).
3. Selection of awarded papers and invitations for expanded versions for 
IARIA journals are not affected by the presentation method (pre recorded 
or in person)
We wish you health and safety during these times.

----------------

That being said, note that the submission deadline of *July 20* is 
approaching.
Please consider to contribute to and/or forward to the appropriate 
groups the following opportunity to submit and publish original 
scientific results to:
*SEMAPRO 2020*, The Fourteenth International Conference on Advances in 
Semantic Processing
Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended article 
versions to one of the IARIA Journals: https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=https-3A__www.iariajournals.org&d=DwIDaQ&c=sJ6xIWYx-zLMB3EPkvcnVg&r=yQQsvTNAnbvDXGM4nDrXAje4pr0qHX2qIOcCQtJ5k3w&m=t4Yfj_s5pD3GchJnU44Gpk0ujK7p0j0bAtu5KYUninM&s=eUSR8KtiA7R0My1zIfjk3_q49UsMEsxyGges51078S4&e=
