=== UPDATES regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus) ===

VISMAC2020 is half a year away and hopefully the COVID-19 emergency will 
be over by then. Otherwise the option of postponing VISMAC2020 will be 
considered, as the safety and well-being of all participants has the 
highest priority. Further updates will be discussed later.

=== Aim & Scope ===

The international summer school VISMAC "VISione delle MACchine" (in 
English, "Machine Vision") is organized every two years by the 
"Associazione Italiana per la ricerca in Computer Vision, Pattern 
recognition e machine Learning" (CVPL - ex-GIRPR) affiliated to 
International Association for Pattern Recognition (IAPR). It represents 
a stimulating opportunity for doctoral students, young researchers from 
universities, research institutions and industry. The primary objective 
of the Summer School is to provide a common scientific and cultural
