GPECOM2020 Moved to Virtual Event

Dear Colleagues,

The Organizing Committee of GPECOM2020 has been following the continued uncertainties of COVID-19 pandemia for a long time. Although we were eager to organize this edition as a regular in-person event again, continuing concerns and travel restrictions make it impossible to ensure the organization of a quality and a comfortable conference with on-site experience. We would like to express that maintaining our participants’ health and safety is our top priority for the event.
In the light of growing concerns on the COVID-19 pandemia, Chairs of GPECOM2020 and technical co-sponsors, IEEE, IEEE Region8, IEEE Turkey Section, IEEE IAS, IEEE IES, and IEEE PELS have decided not to move forward with the in-person event scheduled for October 20-23, in Izmir, Turkey.
After much thoughtful deliberation and approval of technical co-sponsors, we have reached a consensus on moving GPECOM2020 to fully virtual. The conference dates will remain same, on October 20-23, 2020, as announced before. After this transition, the deadlines of conference have been revised as below;

Full Paper Submission Date: July 17th, 2020
Notification of Acceptance Date: August 30th, 2020
Final Paper Submission Date: September 18th, 2020

The general considerations and revisions are defined as follows after moving GPECOM2020 to virtual event;

  • The conference programme will still be organized in keynote, tutorial and dialog sessions as planned for in-person meeting.
  • Presentations will be given online and synchronously. In case very long difference exists between time zones, voice narration and prerecorded video may be applicable for those presenters.
  • Conference registrants will be able to view slides over a certain and an extended period, and will be able to interact with posted questions.
  • All presented proceedings will be submitted for publication to IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
  • The registration fees are revised to reduced rates for virtual edition of GPECOM2020. The details will be announced at Registration Fees page soon.
We are looking forward to meeting at virtual edition of GPECOM2020.
