President letter

Dear Member,

I would like to reach out to you with this special message on the details of the future ISE meetings, which you may be waiting for to plan your future activities. Our professional activities have been severely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. The pandemic related restrictions force us to redefine priorities and the ways by which we wish to reach our goals. The same applies also to our Society and its activities. The Executive Committee closely observes the situation with Covid-19 and the response to the pandemic was in the focus of all four Zoom meetings the Executive Committee held this year.

The pandemic forced us to cancel both Topical Meetings we planned for 2020 in Tainan and Salt Lake City. Eventually we were also forced to move our flagship event for 2020 – the Annual Meeting in Belgrade fully online. The determination you have shown in supporting the ISE throughout 2020 provides the ample inspiration to the Executive Committee to keep the Society active despite the Covid-19 pandemic.

We have already started, together with the local organizers and ISE Office, to prepare the measures which - if implemented - will help us to carry most of activities without compromising the safety of our members and attendees of our Meetings. Let me provide a brief outline of the steps which we are taking to safeguard the ISE operations in 2021 and beyond.

i)    Given the unpredictable nature of the pandemic we will prepare all future meetings in a dual mode which will allow us to switch the planned Meetings from regular (in presence) form to an online meeting at predefined dates
ii)    The final decisions regarding the nature of the meeting (online or in presence) will be made at the latest 3 months before the planned start of the Meeting. These decisions will be immediately communicated to registered participants, ISE members and general public via ISE mailer or dedicated web pages of the planned Meeting
iii)    The organization framework of the meetings (Symposia topics, Symposia organizers, etc.) and important dates of the Meeting organization will remain the same for in-presence and on-line meetings.
iv)    Modality of the Meeting organization – online vs. in presence will be also reflected in different registration fees which will be significantly reduced should the meeting be organized online. The actual registration fees and registration categories will be communicated through dedicated Meeting web sites.
v)    Should the ISE be forced to move any of the envisaged meetings online the scientific program will be based on pre-recorded presentations combined with live online discussion sessions
vi)    To mitigate the adverse effects of different time-zones in which the Meeting participants may reside the ISE will enable asynchronous watching of all presentations for the whole duration of the Meeting
vii)    This implicates that the presenting authors will retain the Copyright to all presentations and will be asked to provide the ISE a Creative Commons Attribution Non-commercial No Derivatives (CC BY-NC-ND) license enabling the asynchronous access of the Meeting participants to the pre-recorded content. This license should be provided for a restricted period time and will expire at the end of the meeting. 

I do believe that you will find the above assembled information sufficiently detailed to provide the essential orientation in the measures the Executive Committees implements to secure the Society presence in 2021. I would like to express our sincere thanks to you for the strong support you have shown to the ISE in 2020 and let me express the great hope that the ISE will have the pleasure to welcome you to our meetings in 2021.

Finally I wish you and your families continued safety and good health.
