HEAd’20 goes virtual

The worldwide situation regarding COVID-19 is currently affecting all travel plans around the globe. Although we hope the situation gets better in June, the current uncertainty prevents us from organizing HEAd in the traditional format.

Therefore, the organizing committee has decided to organize it as an online event, to be held in the same dates, 3-5 June. It will have the same format as the traditional ones (keynotes, regular sessions, opening and closing, etc.) to be the usual platform for networking, interaction and discussion.




















Call for workshop papers

The call for papers for the main conference is now closed, but you can still contribute to HEAd’20 by submitting your paper to one of the workshops that are collocated with the conference:










Nominations for the Best Paper Award of HEAd’19

We would like to announce the list of papers that have been nominated as candidates for the Best Paper Award. The nominated papers were selected based on their review scores.

The final decision will be made during the conference by the best paper committee based on the presentation and Q&A. The award will be announced and conferred during the closing session (Friday, 28th June 2019 at 13:30).
