Most of the EuroPris meetings and conferences have been put on a hold at the moment due to the COVID-19 crisis. It is for sure that this crisis will keep us from travelling for weeks / months to come. Still, we would like to think positively ahead and plan activities for the second half of the year. In case the situation is still not yet safe by then, the workshops will be re-scheduled. But by having your input already now, we can start preparing the workshop programs and be more flexible, when we have to look for new dates.
For the 5 th time EuroPris is organizing a workshop on ICT in prisons. The workshop is planned to take part in Vienna, Austria from 29 September – 1 October 2020 .

Topics will include digital services for staff and inmates, artificial intelligence, drones, business intelligence, national cloud solutions, use of biometrics and more.
The European Prison Regime Forum will take place in autumn/winter 2020 (exact date and location to be determined).
For over 20 years, the European Prison Regime Forum has brought together practitioners, NGOs and academics to speak about prison work. The traditional focus on labor has already been expanded to vocational training and will this year also include sports. EuroPris is seeking papers for presentations in two streams: Stream I: Future-proof prison labor & vocational training and Stream II: Prison sports (papers and market place).
