Overview of Remote IMX

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. Therefore, the Organizing Committee in collaboration with the Steering Committee and ACM, believe that the most realistic, reasonable and safe decision is to cancel the physical part of the conference, and go fully online.

The plan for the conference is to use a mix of tools for enabling a remote conference, focusing on the most relevant aspect of each part of a conference:

  • One-to-one => DC
  • One-to-many => welcome and closing session, papers, keynotes, industry talks and pitches
  • Many-to-many => posters, demos, social interaction
