The 12th ICAANE will be carried out both in presence and remotely (only for registered participants) during the week from 6th to 10th April 2021. Of course, attendees will be subject to the precautionary limitations that health regulations require in terms of social distancing and reduced capacity of classrooms (we will strictly follow the guidelines (https://www.unibo.it/en/university/covid-19-The-measures-adopted-by-the-University-of-Bologna/information-about-the-contagion-and-the-protection-of-our-communitys-health) which will be in place in April 2021 for the University of Bologna). The use of a face mask will be mandatory at all times, hand sanitizers will be placed on multiple spots and speakers will be required to use a new pair of gloves during each presentation. The welcome cocktail will be held in an open space with strict observation of social distancing, coffee breaks are guaranteed through the distribution of individual bags, while the social dinner is canceled. On top of the funds collected through fees, we are investing also considerable resources into a live streaming website and equipment and into the open access publication of proceedings with Harrassowitz. 15 classrooms functioning in parallel will allow speakers to present, with copyright protection, their papers to both the in-person and virtual audience of registered participants. Discussions moderated by the session chairperson will be possible (remote questions via chat only). All speakers will be required to send also a video of Their presentation as a further precaution against their own internet connection failures (detailed instructions will be circulated later on). Posters will be presented into a virtual classroom and they will be available for download, with a prior registration into the SocArXiv (https://osf.io/preprints/socarxiv) database for intellectual protection. Poster authors will have the possibility discuss their work with participants within this digital environment. Printed posters may be exhibited as well in additon to the digital version. Check the page (https://eventi.unibo.it/12icaane/prizes) for the announcements of cash prizes offered to registered participants. We please ask colleagues wishing to update their abstracts and/or titles to do so by December 1st 2020 at the latest. Participants will need to specify if their attendance will be either remote or in person by March 5th 2021. With the rescheduling, a limited additional call for papers has been established following the requests which we received. An addition of up to 40 new papers will be allowed into the program.
