Scientifc Paper abstract submission deadline: December, 13th, 2020

Abstracts by industrial partners can be submitted until January, 29th.

Conference language: English

Conditions of acceptance:

Only original material should be submitted. Government and company clearance to present and publish should be finalized at the time of submission. Non-research based papers which attempt to promote commercial products cannot be submitted.

Please upload also a short bio, if you upload your abstract.

(Authors are expected to secure the registration fee as well as travel and accommodation funding through their sponsoring organizations, before submitting full paper.)

Selection Process

The committee will review the abstracts. Submitted abstracts may

be selected for oral or pre-recorded (poster) presentation. Full scientific
papers (4 pages) undergo a peer review process. Accepted papers
will be submitted for inclusion into IEEEXplore® subject to meeting
IEEEXplore®’s scope and quality requirements.
Information concerning open access publication will be shown on the webpage.
Especially for authors from industry: The ‘Presentation only’ option
(no full paper) is also available. Abstract submission is still required.

Oral and Pre-recorded Presentations

Parallel sessions will be held at the conference. Authors of the
pre-recordings will get the possibility to pitch their presentation
live in a special session.

Authors will get the information from the technical organizer, if they have been selected. Authors are requested to submit their full paper (4 pages) in time, as the scientific papers will undergo a double blind peer review process before publishing.
