More information on how attendees and presenting authors can upload and access these presentations will be available by April 1, 2020.  
 
We realize that many of you have already registered and paid the necessary fees. Registrations that were not associated with an accepted paper will receive a full refund. Authors of accepted papers that still wish to be published in Xplore will receive a 50% refund on Full Registrations (including IMS Member, IEEE Member & Non-Member). Please check your email and the conference website for updates on the refund process, no action is required at this time.

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our top priority.

Due to the consequences of the Covid-19 situation, the ISPCS Steering Committee has decided to postpone the conference in Vienna to Fall 2021.  Thus, there will be no ISPCS conference in 2020.  During the discussions, the Steering Committee has considered running ISPCS 2020 as a virtual conference, but in the end, the Committee felt that the value of the ISPCS conference is in the face-to-face meetings and plugfest, which we believe could not be successfully replicated in a virtual setting.

The plan is to still hold the conference in Vienna, sometime in Fall 2021.  The Steering Committee will be working to set the exact dates of the ISPCS 2021 Vienna conference in the next month or so.  We welcome and look forward to your attendance and participation in ISPCS 2021 in Vienna, Austria.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please email us for further details: tlineberger@conferencecatalysts.com.
