We would like to welcome you to this virtual edition of DIMVA 2020.
This year, DIMVA received 45 valid submissions from academic and industrial organizations from more than 60 different institutions across 21 countries. Each submission was carefully reviewed by three Program Committee members or external experts. The final selection of papers was decided by Program Committee members during online discussions, in lieu of our traditional physical PC meeting. Discussions were however lively on hotcrp, with 258 comments. The Program Committee selected 13 full papers for presentation at the conference and publication in the proceedings, resulting in an acceptance rate of 28.9%.
We would like to express our appreciation to the Program Committee members and external reviewers for the time spent reviewing papers, participating in the online discussion, and shepherding some of the papers to ensure the highest quality possible. This was clearly a difficult time for everybody, but the Program Committee did a great job. We also deeply thank the members of the Organizing Committee and the Steering Committee for their hard work and responsiveness during this crisis. We are wholeheartedly thankful to our sponsors ERNW, Siemens, and Springer for generously supporting DIMVA 2020.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you in person again, hopefully at DIMVA 2021!
Clémentine Maurice and Leyla Bilge,
DIMVA 2020 Program co-chairs
