AIVCE-BS: Background

Published: 03 Sep 2020

Our unplanned, first virtual conference to be organised involved the forced postponement of the face-to-face AicQoL2020, Malacca 18-19 Mar. 2020, due to the Movement Control Order (MCO) strictly enforced on the 18 Mar 2020, as a result of the global Covid-19 virus pandemic.  The conference was successfully broadcasted virtually on 25 Mar. 2020.

Due to the uncertainty of when the prolonged global pandemic would end, and so as to ensure the sustainability of our future conferences for the continuity of our publications, our first official virtual international conference was successfully organised – the AIVCE-BS-1, 2020ShahAlam, 24 Jun 2020. Again, due to the uncertainty of the pandemic, rather than the usual norm to name AIVCE-BS annually, it is named in series. Meaning, AIVCE-BS can be organised more than once in the same year – differentiated by the series.

Virtual presentations shall also from now be allowed for our future face-to-face conferences.
