We are deeply concerned for the virus development in connection to the
conference activities and that the World Health Organization has declared it
a global pandemic.
We are quite sensitive to that constraint but equally determined to fight
against the difficulties that emerged.
We are in front of the new challenges, a new historical frame, new
conditions of life.
In these conditions, and following many requests and after consulting the
committee, we have turned the conference to Virtual Conference in order from
the one hand to follow the international instructions about the pandemic and
the other hand to turn the 12th QQML into a successful virtual international
event (www.qqml.org <http://www.qqml.org> ).
So far the basis of the QQML Conference series will remain unchanged
including the Proceedings and Publications in Books and Journals.
The web interactions, after the appropriate adaptations, will join better
the groups of colleagues forming streams and workshops. A new challenge to
open the international travel barriers set to stop the coronavirus spread.
While the Conference dates remain unchanged, the deadline of the early
registration deadline extended to 25 April including the corresponding
reduced fees for the virtual participation (to be announced in the website
soon). The technical details will be announced later on.
