Dear colleagues and C3DIS attendees,

It is with deep regret that we advise the 2020 Collaborative Conference on Computational and Data Intensive Science (2020 C3DIS) scheduled to take place in Melbourne 16 – 20 March has been cancelled.

The rapidly changing circumstances relating to COVID-19, combined with the recent implementation of organisational travel restrictions, and government travel restrictions here in Australia and internationally has significantly impacted the ability of delegates to attend the conference. As such the organising committee has been left with no choice but to cancel the conference.

This has been a very difficult decision for the organising committee to take. We apologise for the limited notice and recognise the decision will impose a significant inconvenience for all participants.

This cancellation applies to the main conference (16 – 17 March) and all post conference workshops (18 – 20 March).

We understand a lot of presenters will have already prepared their presentations and slides. We will contact all presenters offering to post presentation slides and pre-recorded videos to the conference website in the coming weeks.

We thank you for your understanding during this very difficult time.
