We are still planning to hold ISMIR 2020 on the scheduled dates (11–15 October 2020).

It is not clear yet whether it will be possible to have a physical component to the conference. In any scenario, we will have an online conference, and the Proceedings will be published online as usual.

We will also delay the registration process; it will not open before 1 July 2020.
