We regret to inform that there will be no physical ETRA 2020 in Stuttgart in June. All accepted authors contributions will be published in the ACM DL.

ETRA 2020 is going virtual; further information comes asap.

We are already looking very much forward to meeting you all at ETRA 2021 in Stuttgart!

Dear ETRA community: We are assessing avenues to move forward with the conference. Regardless of how we proceed, we want you to know that all accepted papers will appear in the ACM DL. Please be patient for a short while as we go through the complex steps that are needed to respond to this unprecedented situation. Thank you for your support and engagement!

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. We are following updates on the situation from the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC). We urge all attendees to keep informed on risks, precautions, and symptoms to make educated decisions.

Together with ACM and SIGCHI, ETRA 2020 organizers develop guidelines for traveling or presenting at ETRA 2020. These include potential extensions of full registration refunds to those unable to attend due to travel restrictions*. For authors who will not be able to present their papers due to travel restrictions, changing your registration to a co-author will be supported. Please look for updates on the website while we work on further options.

*These options are intended to assist those unable to attend due to travel restriction. In all other cases, authors are expected to attend the conference and present their work in person.
