In ICSE 2021 we have tried to improve networking activities and imitate the face-to-face experience. Although they are obviously no substitute for a physical conference, virtual environments can enable virtual networking with people all over the globe who would otherwise be unable to attend in person. Therefore, we see virtuality as an opportunity to increase access to the conference for many who, even under normal circumstances, may not have been able to travel to a physical conference.
The technical sessions will be interlaced with social sessions to achieve, despite virtuality, ICSE’s traditional role of building and consolidating our community. We will have more than 30 social/networking events (including hangouts with keynote speakers and awardees, technical and non-technical speed dating-like sessions, yoga, coffee with members of the OC, and several mentoring and minority groups support sessions).
