ICSE 2002 has moved to Orlando, Florida, USA.

Members of the ICSE Community:

With regret, the ICSE 2002 organizers, in consultation with the ICSE steering committee, have decided to move ICSE 2002 from the originally planned Buenos Aires, Argentina venue to Orlando, Florida, USA. The conference dates, May 19-25, 2002, remain the same.

You are no doubt aware of the recent events in Argentina. We believe that any risk to ICSE attendees as a result of these events is much less than the impression given by news reports and that most likely, the situation will stabilize by May. In addition, we acknowledge that no location is entirely without risk, as we were sadly reminded in September. However, many participants in ICSE must make travel arrangements far in advance of the conference and we must consider perceptions as well as actual risks. After polling as many as possible of those involved and the full ICSE steering committee, we have concluded that many ICSE attendees do not feel sufficiently confident to commit to traveling to Buenos Aires at this time.

We all looked forward to ICSE in Buenos Aires. The exceptional group of local organizers meant we were certain of a successful conference. We deeply regret the need to relocate ICSE 2002. We look forward to future conference opportunities in Buenos Aires, which despite temporary setbacks remains a wonderful place to visit and the home of a considerable amount of world-class software research.

Given adequate time, we would have preferred to move to another location in South America. The extremely short lead time and the difficulty of making arrangements for a major conference such as ICSE dictated relocation to Orlando, Florida, U.S.A. We are fortunate to have obtained excellent conference facilities at the Orlando World Center Marriott Resort & Convention Center, with favorable room rates and without a change to the conference dates. Although Buenos Aires would have been preferable, we have every reason to be believe that ICSE 2002 in Orlando with its excellent technical program will be a rewarding experience for attendees. We look forward to seeing you there.
