The safety and well-being of our participants is of paramount importance to IEEE Signal Processing Society. On 11 March 2020 the World Health Organization (WHO) declared Covid-19 a pandemic. After careful consideration and in light of the global health emergency and pervasive travel restrictions, IEEE Signal Processing Society has made the difficult decision to convert SPAWC 2020 to a fully virtual conference.
We were looking forward to seeing everyone at SPAWC in Atlanta, GA, USA, but we are excited for the opportunity to innovate by creating an engaging virtual conference that will be rewarding for both presenters and attendees.
Immediate guidance for authors and information about registration and participation are given on the corresponding web pages.
The conference will still take place between May 26-29, as these are the dates people have allocated to attend the conference. We expect most participants will still commit their time during this window to participate in the conference, and have discussions with fellow researchers around the world.
Registration will provide each participant with an access code to participate in sessions. For authors, registration is required for accepted papers to be considered for inclusion into IEEE Xplore. Registration funds collected will be used to support the infrastructure needed to host and support the virtual conference.
