In light of the current circumstances related to the rapidly evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, our host for the 2020 Network Performing Arts Production Workshop (NPAPW), has issued a cancellation of all events of 50 or more.  Given the uncertain timeframe for containment, the difficult decision has been made to cancel the upcoming NPAPW workshop, 21-23 April 2020, with full support from Internet2, GÉANT, NYSERNet, and the 2020 NPAPW Program Committee.

It is our hope that, by making this decision, we are part of the solution in controlling the COVID-19 outbreak, rather than asking attendees to risk travel and exposure.   Given the unique expertise of the advanced networked performing arts community, the program committee is exploring options for sharing content, updates, and exciting case studies in a virtual environment to keep the community engaged.   We are also exploring the location and cadence of future meetings and will communicate those decisions soon.

Internet2 will issue refunds of conference registration fees and will contact registered attendees separately with information on the refund process.   If you have booked your hotel using the links to the NPAPW room block, room reservations can be canceled without penalty (up to 24 hours prior to arrival for the Best Western Hotel, and 48 hours for the Courtyard Marriott).   

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

The Network Performing Arts Production Workshop (NPAPW) provides leading researchers, teachers, musicians, artists and technology developers a unique opportunity to learn about new developments in the use of technology-supported scenarios for distance learning and remote collaboration in performing arts and higher-education.

Please note that the event registration cost is:

$300.00 USD
