We are aware that some of our attendees may be concerned about the possible impacts of COVID-19. We wish to reassure you that PtW-WCFS2020 will certainly take place on 6-8 October 2020 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The conference will neither be cancelled nor postponed. It will likely take place in a hybrid form: a physical event that is broadcast, depending on the COVID-19 situation then.


The organizing committee and venue provider follow the recommendations from the Dutch government closely and implement necessary measures regarding the pandemic in order to ensure that the event will take place in a safe environment.


For those with concerns over purchased tickets, there will be a period of time before the conference for you to “change” or “upgrade” your tickets. For instance:

  • Early bird ticket holders can change from physical attendance to digital attendance without additional fee

  • Standard ticket holders can change from physical attendance to digital attendance

  • Digital ticket holders can upgrade from digital attendance to physical attendance by paying the price differences (if there is still availability for physical attendance at the venue)


In case participants are confined to severe travel restrictions of own countries, you will be encouraged to join the event digitally. Speakers who have confirmed to speak at the event will then be required to pre-record the presentations. More details will be announced later.


The organization committee will continue to observe the situation closely and make informed decisions accordingly.


We wish you all good health and may you stay safe.
