On March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) has declared the risk and impact of COVID-19 to be very high and thus has characterized the current COVID-19 situation as ‘Global Pandemic’. As your safety is our top priority, we have decided to make new arrangements to ensure that ICOQSIA2020 still proceeds, albeit with the addition of some exciting new features. ICOQSIA2020 will be rescheduled to 13-14th October 2020 at Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM).

After much deliberation, we have agreed to conduct the conference virtually, as an alternative to the conventional oral presentations. In essence, two presentation modes will be offered to our participants: in-person presentation (in-house participants only) and virtual presentation. Moreover, two-way interaction between the presenter and the audience may be conducted live through online platform and chat room function. All registered participants must ensure they have sufficient internet connection during the conference period.

Please check for the latest fees and revised important due dates. Full registration fee covers the conference package, which includes:

• 8-10 mins presentation slot
• Technical support
• Program e-book
• Engagement with audience
• Access to other parallel slots
• E-certificate for presenter
• Evaluation by panel of experts
• Conference abstract e-book with ISBN
• Scopus publication (accepted status)

As in all its previous assemblies, ICOQSIA2020 promises to inspire, uplift and enrich its audience, in spite of the challenges that we face in our battle against COVID-19. Do mark the dates of the conference in your calendar. We are looking forward to welcoming you to ICOQSIA2020 this October. Stay safe and stay connected.

Thank you for your attention.
