The current worldwide situation regarding COVID-19 is seriously affecting all travel plans to/from Europe, including Portugal. The conference organizers have been monitoring the situation over the past weeks, with full attention for the health and safety of all presenters, exhibitors and attendees, and have explored all options to maintain the event as planned, in close cooperation with IEEE. The current situation, with restrictions imposed by the European Commission, the Portuguese Government, Porto Municipality, and the Organizing Institutions, no longer allows the conference to proceed in the traditional face-to-face format in 2020.
Therefore, it has been decided to organize EDUCON2020 as an online event during the same period of the planned physical event scheduled to Porto, from April 27 to 30, 2020.
To implement this, the following actions will be taken:
All registered attendees will receive more information through ConfTool in the next few days.
(*) Technical details concerning the online environment will follow soon.
(**) Details concerning the size, format and upload instructions for presentations with recorded audio will also follow soon.
IEEE EDUCON 2020 will be organized by the University of Coimbra, University of Porto and Polytechnic of Porto, Portugal. The event will be held on the Polytechnic of Porto - School of Engineering, April 28-30th, 2020. Several pre-conference workshops will be held on April 27th, 2020.
EDUCON 2020 will be focused on "Engineering Education for the Future in a Multicultural and Smart World".
The IEEE Global Engineering Education Conference (EDUCON) 2020 is the eleventh in a series of conferences that rotate among central locations in IEEE Region 8 (Europe, Middle East and North Africa). EDUCON is the flagship conference of the IEEE Education Society.
