Note on COVID-19: Iberometrics is traditionally a sponsored event, implying no paid registration for participants. However, due to the extremely difficult current economic circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, sponsors have been difficult to find. The effort of the Organising Committee to find sponsors continues, but the results of the search are uncertain. This means that the possibility exists for a registration fee to be asked from participants. The Committee understands this is new for Iberometrics but also believes that potential participants understand its possible need due to the very special circumstances we are passing through. Information about this situation will be updated.
