These are extraordinary times that require all of us to depart from what we had planned! It has been decided that ERS 2021 will not take place in Milano at the Politecnico di Milano, Italy , but instead will be moved to the virtual space again.


We are aware that a virtual conference is not the same as a traditional conference. Some features of a conference can just not be virtualized. However, online formats can also offer new opportunities that will allow us to be experimental, involve new ways of interaction, provide new forms of feedback, and strengthen the ERS community. The more we discussed these opportunities, the more we are excited by them!



conference fee.

ERS 2021 can be attended free of charge.

However, there is a clear expectation that everybody that registers will actively participate in both the asynchronous and the synchronous elements of the conference.


In parallel, academics can also participate in the practice-oriented CSCMP European Conference. The fee for that is  100 Euro.



Registration for ERS is open now! Please register by clicking here.

presentation format.

The presentation of your paper will include both asynchronous and synchronous elements.


As platform for the asynchronous part, ERS 2021 will use a moodle-based setting to which you will receive log-in credentials once you have registered for the conference.

The synchronous part of the ERS 2021 will be facilitated via videocall sessions.


video presentation.

Your primary video-based presentations should be in a voice-over style with a duration of 12-15 minutes. Longer presentations will be cut off after 15 minutes.
A second video of 20-30 seconds duration will be used as a teaser for your topic. There are no limitations to the design or content, so be creative.

Deadline for the video submission is: 16.05.2021

There are no special requirements for video format or size. Since video files will most likely be too large for direct email transfer, please use a transfer service such as wetransfer and share the link with
