The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. IEEE has been monitoring the developing COVID-19 pandemic (Coronavirus).

The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19 (Coronavirus) to be a pandemic, many governments have enacted travel bans and numerous state and local governments are prohibiting large or even moderately-sized public gatherings. Such bans on travel and public gatherings are likely to increase in number and scope in the coming weeks.

After studying and evaluating the announcements, guidance, and news released by relevant national departments, we are sorry to announce that the in-person gathering of IEEE SYSCON 2020, scheduled to be held April 20-23, 2020 in Montreal, Canada has been cancelled. IEEE SYSCON 2020 will now be held as a virtual conference, to be held August 24 – September 20, 2020.

Information of the virtual platform will be confirmed in the coming days. We will be offering virtual presentations by all of our SYSCON 2020 authors and plenary speakers. The papers of all approved authors will be sent to IEEE with intent to publish in the IEEE XPLORE Library, and the presentations of all who present virtually will be available on the conference website.

All authors and attendees will receive a 25% discount on all conference registration fees. This will be automatically refunded to all attendees by Thursday, April 23rd.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and please contact Shelby Lussier ([email protected]) with any questions you may have.
