Conference Update Dated June 15, 2020:

The Organizing Committee of APARM 2020 has decided to make APARM 2020 a
fully virtual event, to be held during the same dates of August 20-23, 2020. This decision is made in consideration of the many factors including (1) government restrictions on travels, Visa applications, and quarantine requirements, (2) the practices adopted by many other professional conferences under the COVID-19 situation, (3) restrictions on travels by authors’ organizations, (4) preferences on the timing of the conference provided by some researchers, (5) the uncertainty on whether in-person conferences of our APARM scale will be allowed later this year or even early next year, and (6) the need for timely dissemination of research results.

A flat reduced registration fee of CDN $550 (approximately US $400) is set to cover various costs. The deadlines for upload of camera-ready papers and copyright forms and for author registration have been postponed to July 15, 2020. Please upload the required documents at EDAS ( and complete your registration by clicking the registration tab of this website.
