Covid-19 information:

ICLaVE is not just any professional conference - it is an opportunity for convivial exchange and engagement on many levels. We are currently still very optimistic that ICLaVE|11 can be held on site and in person come July, and getting together 'IRL' is important to us! However, we all know that the situation might develop in unforeseeable ways from one moment to the next. For this reason, we have made adjustments to our conference registration schedule: we are postponing the opening of registration until mid-March, and have set March as the latest deadline by which we will take the final decision regarding our meeting. 

Please keep checking our conference website for updates and incoming information!

We look forward to your submissions!
