    Dear Colleague,

    Due to the current and expected evolution of the Covid-19 situation in different countries, we expect that travel restrictions and social distancing requirements will not make it possible to organize a physical RENT Conference in Naples.

    Therefore, ECSB and EIASM decided to organize a virtual RENT Conference on Wednesday 18th - Thursday 19th  and Friday 20th of November 2020.

    The format of the online conference will resemble the normal structure of a RENT Conference. That means that we will present and discuss 120-140 papers in 6 or 7 parallel sessions. All presenters of a paper must be discussant of another paper in the same session. Participants will have access to all uploaded PowerPoint presentations and/or all uploaded short recordings of a presentation. Two keynote speakers will participate in an online opening session. We will organize one or two networking events as well poster presentations. 

    The registration fee for the Virtual RENT Conference including a one year's ECSB membership fee is: 254.40 euro for regular members, 229.40 euro for members of a Developing country and 192.20 euro for PhD students (all fees including 21% VAT). For more information about the ECSB activities and the advantages of an ECSB membership, please see www.ecsb.org

    On Friday 20th November 2020 around 16.30h we will organize our annual ECSB meeting with a presentation of the winners of the RENT 2020 awards (Veciana best paper award, Best Doctoral Proposal award, Best PDWW award, ISBJ award, Best poster session award and Best reviewer nominee) and a presentation of  RENT 2021.

    Please take the following deadlines into account:

    • Submission deadline for abstract: 21th of June 2020
    • Announcement of acceptance of papers: Early August 2020
    • Submission deadline for full papers: 1st of October 2020

    More information regarding the submission guidelines can be found at the website: http://www.rent-research.org.

    ECSB is also offering various pre-conference activities:

    • a Call for organizing Professional Development Workshops (PDWs) – Deadline for proposals 31th of July 2020
