| Due to the COVID-19 virus and for the health and safety of our attendees and staff, the 2020 Clute International Academic Conferences Prague will now be held virtually August 2-6, 2020.|
Although traveling is limited, we still aim to provide a platform for people to engage with others from around the world. This virtual conference will stream the Academic Business (IACB) and Education (ICE) conference separately. Tracks under ICE will include Science Education (ISEC) and Technology Education (ICTE).
Many academic institutions and universities are experiencing a travel freeze and faculty is still expected to meet certain expectations. Thus, this virtual conference is a great opportunity to connect and/or present your research to fellow academics, researchers and faculty. Live and pre-recorded presentation opportunities are available for Standard Sessions, Workshops, and Posters. The Clute Institute will provide Certificates of Presentation and Participation at the end of the conference. Best Presentation opportunities will also be available.

Tips to Stay Healthy
There are several things you can do while travelling to help yourself stay healthy. Recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO):
According to the Director- General of the WHO, Dr. Tedros, is confident that this is “the first pandemic in history that [can] be controlled” and he encourages us to “remember that with decisive, early action, we can slow down the virus and prevent infections. Among those who are infected, most will recover.” (World Health Organization, 2020)
- Wash your hands often even when not visibly dirty for at least 20 seconds with soap and water (especially after coughing or sneezing).
- Use hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching toughing your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow when sneezing or coughing.
- Wear a mask if you are sick or coughing and sneezing; or if taking care of someone who is sick.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
- Stay home if you are sick, unless it is to seek medical care.
- Maintain a safe distance between yourself and others.
- Clean and disinfect frequently used surfaces such as doorknobs, tables, desks, phones, light switches, handles, keyboards, phones, ect.
We, at the Clute Institute, encourage you to be proactive and take preventative measures to stay healthy. We look forward to seeing you at any one of our 2020 Clute International Academic Conferences.
