Travel restrictions due to COVID-19:

The ESTS 2023 leadership is committed to having a safe in-person conference. In the event of last-minute travel restrictions or emergencies due to COVID-19, however, alternate methods to present the accepted papers may be made on a case-by-case basis. Should such a situation occur, the ESTS committee must be informed ahead of the scheduled meeting.
