WOSC 2020 on-line event

WOSC, in cooperation with the Russian Academy of Sciences will run an online event of conversations about the already proposed manifesto for WOSC 2020, as well as of its planned themes and sections. The conversations should provide to all of us an option to connect with our section co-coordinators and also among ourselves. In particular, we think that the COVID 19 pandemic should give us new perspectives about Crisis and post-crisis viability and governance.​

The on-line event live streaming will take place on the 16th and 17th of September on https://www.wosc2020.org/, nevertheless several videos, which are part of the on-line event are being uploaded throughout September. You are most welcome to have  look and provide valuable comments to the videos in Youtube. We do expect for the authors to reply on a short notice.
