CIES 2020: Education Beyond the Human

Important Update!

We hope that this message finds you and your loved ones in good health and spirit. It is a time that challenges us all for reasons that are ‘beyond the human’. With this email, we briefly want to inform you about an alternative presentation format, as well as plans for our business meeting.


While each presenter would have the opportunity to schedule a virtual presentation as part of vCIES, we are of the opinion that this is not a good strategy and format for our exchange as a SIG. Although there are many reasons, one is that we are based all over the world, which makes it impossible to find suitable times that work for every member. In this context, we want to offer the opportunity to each presenter to record and share a video of their presentation with us. We as a SIG could then share these on our website and enable an exchange. Please be in touch in case you are interested.


We also think that during these days, everyone might be too overwhelmed for meaningfully focusing and contributing to our SIG’s business meeting. For this reason, we want to suggest to organize our exchange on necessary topics via an online forum. We are currently clarifying how to organize this appropriately and will reach out again with an email that contains all necessary information.


Wishing you all the best while hoping that you and your families are safe and in good health,


Noah and Natasha
