KDD 2020 Update Regarding Coronavirus

(Published: Wed, April 01, 2020)

Dear KDD Community:

We hope that this message finds you healthy and that you and your families are safe and well during this difficult time.

With the annual KDD Conference scheduled for August 23-27, 2020 in San Diego, there has been some uncertainty as to whether we’ll be able to gather for this important event. ACM, the SIGKDD Executive Committee, and the KDD General Chairs are all keeping a close eye on the Coronavirus impacts, current warnings and restrictions in the world and in the United States, and the recommendations of the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control.

It is our determination that KDD will occur in August 2020. The format of the conference will be decided in the coming weeks and will contain a virtual component. There is hope that we may be able to gather in person, in some fashion. However, we are dedicated to providing the content that KDD has become known for in a way that is deemed safe and positive for our attendees.

Please watch for updates in the weeks ahead, and also feel free to reach out to weigh in on the different options for carrying out KDD 2020.
