Since 2020, conferences must be either:

  • hybrid with an in-person conference streamed online, or
  • entirely online.

For hybrid conferences, the rules for continent rotation apply. Therefore, for 2023, the following continents are eligible:

  • Africa
  • Europe
  • South America

If a fully online conference is proposed, the continent can host a hybrid conference in future years.
