OSS 2021 Preparedness plans for COVID-19 scenarios

OSS is scheduled to take place in Lahti in May 2021. However, we are considering multiple scenarios according to COVID-19 scenario:
  • If travel is not possible for some regions, we will be flexible and allow virtual presentations for affected speakers;
  • If travel is possible but some of you prefer not to make the journey, we will be flexible and allow virtual presentations for speakers preferring to stay at home;
  • If the situation is very much as it is today, we will go virtual.
