Move conference to Virtual

Consequences of COVID-19

Due to the uncertainty about the restrictions in travelling during this year, the organizers decided to change the form of the conference from a traditional personal meeting to a virtual event. We apologize for this change which, as we hope, will be exceptional in the series of AE conferences. We believe that this change will not discourage you from submitting your papers.

Important changes:

  • The Proceedings will be published in print and sent to the first authors by post.
  • The Proceedings will be distributed shortly after the conference.
  • The conference fee will be reduced to 290 EUR.
  • The fee must be paid by July 31, 2021 at latest.
  • Each author can submit up to two papers for one conference fee.
  • Additional fee 20 EUR will be charged for 2 extra pages.
  • Price reduction 10% for IEEE members and 20% for IEEE-IES members remain.
