Important notice about SecAppDev 2020

Due to the current situation with COVID-19 (Corona), with deep regret, we feel bound to postpone SecAppDev 2020 indefinitely. While there have been no official instructions to postpone events such as ours or reduce travel, both attendees and speakers have informed us that they are unable to attend SecAppDev.

The FAQ below answers any questions you may have about the current state of SecAppDev 2020.

We hope everyone in SecAppDev stays healthy, and wish everyone the best for the coming months.

Can I repurpose my ticket for the next edition of SecAppDev?

Yes, if you prefer to automatically transfer your ticket to the next edition, please inform us ASAP. Without any news from you, we issue a full refund of your ticket.

Will my ticket be refunded?

Yes, unless you prefer to transfer your ticket to the next edition (see previous question). We will issue a full refund for every ticket purchase through the same channel as your purchase. We will also follow up the reimbursement with a credit note for your administration.

Was there no alternative?

We believe this course of action is the best way forward. A number of attendees and speakers already indicated that they could not attend SecAppDev. Additionally, we decided that SecAppDev is not worth risking exposing anyone to COVID-19, even if those chances are small. Given the intimate and immersive nature of SecAppDev, we also did not see an alternative to meeting in person (e.g. online lectures).

Is anyone involved with SecAppDev infected with COVID-19?

To our knowledge, none of our faculty members, attendees, or organizers are currently infected. However, many have been issued a negative travel advice, which prevents SecAppDev from taking place.

What does this mean for future editions of SecAppDev?

The SecAppDev non-profit has always followed a cautious financial strategy. We have a buffer to deal with emergencies, so we do not expect an existential threat to the non-profit organizing SecAppDev. We are confident you will receive a notification about SecAppDev 2021 in a couple of months.
