Good to hear from you, Sharbani!

Yes, we'll relaunch the CFP for the conference once the new dates have 
been finalized. There is already an excellent slate of papers that were 
accepted, and I hope that everyone who had planned to be in Toulouse 
right now will be able to attend in 2022 -- new proposals are welcome as 

It's too early to know yet, but I would anticipate a similar date due to 
the academic schedule of Université Toulouse II. It's a lovely city to 

Very best
