Finally, help us protect you while you protect others. Nothing can be more noble than this. Despite the challenges and inconveniences, we hope we will succeed in organizing AIBBC 2021 in a safe and sound manner. But should the situation worsen, please beware that we may terminate the conference/workshops prematurely, as the situation may demand.
