PHDays 10 coming in spring 2021
For the last several months, the Positive Hack Days 10 organizing committee has been monitoring the coronavirus situation. We had hoped that, despite the current strict quarantine measures and restrictions on international travel, it would be possible to go ahead with the event later this fall. But subsequent events showed that risks and severe restrictions will very likely persist.
The upshot is that we will not be able to hold the big anniversary PHDays the way we wanted. And an online-only event would not have been enough to realize the full scope of our ambitions. Therefore, we are announcing the postponement of PHDays 10 until spring 2021. Based on the predictions of health experts and other authorities, we believe that international air travel and mass gatherings are likely to resume by then.
We will inform about the new dates of PHDays 10 as soon as this information becomes available. When the dates are announced, we will reach out to all participants and presenters to confirm their ability to attend. Previously purchased PHDays tickets will remain valid. The Call for Papers will be extended and we will continue to accept proposals from all interested presenters.
Although we are postponing the forum, we will still have a few exciting things for you in the meantime: we will be holding The Standoff online this fall. Dates and details on the upcoming epic cyberbattle will be announced closer to that time.
