Reminder: NICE moved by one week to March, 17-20th, 2020

Since the initial announcement of the NICE 2020 date at NICE 2019 two date-clashes with other meetings came up. To avoid the overlap with NAISyS (March 24-28th) and AICAS 2020 (March 23-25th) we decided to move the NICE by one week to March 17-20th, 2020.
