3rd Annual COMPTEXT Conference 2020

 After careful consideration, the Executive Board of the COMPTEXT project and the local organizers have decided to hold the conference in a limited, online-only format this year. This means that no event will be held in Innsbruck this May. This was an extremely difficult decision to make, as the local organizers did a terrific job in putting this event on. However, the public health situation in Europe and around the world, as well as various travel bans left us no alternative. 

Currently we are in contact with our keynote speakers and tutorial holders to see if a video webinar is feasible. We also consider pairing PhD students with accepted papers to senior colleagues who could provide feedback on a predetermined schedule. We will inform you of these options as soon as possible and if there is interest on your behalf, we will do our best to keep the COMPTEXT spirit alive until next year’s conference in this limited format. 

As for next year, our plan is to go ahead with the Dublin venue as scheduled. The Call for Papers for COMPTEXT 2021 will be circulated this Fall, and the submission date will be next January. The conference will take place late in the Spring. Please check back regularly on our website where you will find up to date information on this next installment of COMPTEXT. 

We will soon be in touch with you regarding the possibilities for this year’s online event. 

Thank you for your understanding and be safe!

From 2020 the project continues on a new name, one that better reflects our approach.

Travel Advisory

You can fly in to Innsbruck directly or Munich Airport. If flights are available, we recommend flying directly to Innsbruck. The airport is small and convenient. If you take a plane to Munich you can either come by train to Innsbruck or book an Airport Shuttle. Also note that trains are great in Austria specifically and Europe in general.

Safe travels!
