Congratulations to all the Awardees. Their efforts and dedication help us to have a better conference year to year.

The conference IEEE EDUCON start in 201o with the first conference in Madrid, Spain, and is rotating along all IEEE Region 8 from Europe to Middle East and to Africa, going until now to Amman, Marrakesh, Berlin, Istambul, Tallinn, Abu Dhabi, Athens and Tenerife, finishing this 2019 with our tenth conference in Dubai. We are going back to South Europe to Porto in Portugal in 2020.

Year to year we are consolidating and improving this conference of IEEE Education Society in our community, with more than 300 attendees and an strong community of Engineering Education inside IEEE Region 8. Our relations with the other conferences of the IEEE Education Society are stronger too, as we have with Frontier in Education, (FIE), (October 2019 in Cincinnati, OH, USA), IEEE Learning with MOOCs (LWMOOCS), (October 2019 in Milwaukee, WI, USA), IEEE Teaching, Assessment and Learning for Engineering (TALE), (December 2019 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia) and IEEE World Engineering Education Conference (EDUNIE), (March 2020 close to Bogota, Colombia).

Thanks again to all the reviewers, program committee members, organizing members, session chairs, authors and presenters and attendees for their magnificent work and see you next year in wonderful Porto.
