In the context of the COVID-19, the Conference date is postponed to September 29-30 and October 1 and the format is adapted to be online.
In preparation for the Call 2020 and the Call 2020 - Open Science, to be open in December, the national and regional research funding organisations of CHIST-ERA invite scientists to participate in the definition of the calls at the CHIST-ERA Conference 2020.
The conference is organised online on September 29-30 and October 1 by UKRI, the British funding partner of CHIST-ERA. A session dedicated to the recording of the conference keynote talks is planned online on September 25 and is open to the participants.
The programme features a combination of plenary and facilitated break-out sessions, high-level keynote talks by internationally renowned specialists, shorter talks and poster presentations to identify and formulate the most promising scientific and technological challenges of the topics of the calls. This event represents a unique opportunity for the scientific community to directly participate in scoping the calls topics content and exchange their views on the future of the domains with their peers. Many successful CHIST-ERA proposals have been initiated at CHIST-ERA conferences.
The conference is also a netwroking event that allows potential applicants to set the basis for future collaborations. A specific information session on the rules of participation to CHIST-ERA calls is proposed and applicants are offered the possibility to pitch their project proposal.

These recordings will be made available to the participants in advance of the conference. The webinar will be open to the attendees. September 29 is dedicated to the topic Advanced Brain-Computer Interfaces for Novel Interactions, September 30 explores the topic Towards Sustainable ICT promising research directions, and October 1 gathers Open Science specialists to exchange on the challenges of Open Research Data. A programme overview is presented in the table below and the abstracts of the talks and posters will be made available here.
In addition to joining the facilitated break-out sessions, the participants are encouraged to contribute with a poster (in PDF format) and/or by proposing a short talk (10-12').
