Welcome Message - 55th IEEE Industry Applications Society Annual Meeting

It is less than one month away!


From its onset, the IEEE-IAS Annual Meeting planning committee pays close attention to the development of the Covid-19 and its impact on everyday life. Our primary concern is the health, safety, and experiences of our conference attendees and colleagues.

To strike the balance between safety and the experiences of the participants, the plenary session will be live casting and the paper presentation will be semi-live for 2020IAS Annual Meeting.

For the registrants of 2020IAS AM, you will have the following privileges:

  1. Attend plenary session on 10/12/2020 (Live casting).
  2. Attend the paper presentations and Q&A on 10/13/2020 – 10/15/2020 (Semi-live; Pre-recorded paper presentation will be played in the session first and followed by live Q&A). Taking the time zone into consideration, the paper sessions will be scheduled between 9:00AM – 12:00PM EDT. To comply with GDPR and respect the privacy of the audiences, the paper presentation and Q&A sessions will not be recorded.
  3. Visit vendors’ EXPO.
  4. View and download the conference papers till 10/31/2020.
