The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our top priority, therefore after studying and evaluating the current COVID situation, we decided to convert ARES & CD-MAKE 2021 into an all-digital conference experience. The dates of the conference will remain the same. We will be happy to organize an in person event in Vienna in addition to the virtual conference, if the COVID situation will allow.
