In 2019, analysing the social situation in Chile, we correctly interpreted the consequences and decided to transfer the conference face-to-face to a virtual conference. We were successful at IEEE Chilecon2019 for 2 weeks in November 2019. We had support from IEEE and they considered it to be a global milestone: it turns the crisis into an opportunity to innovate (attaché).
In this 2020, the Covid19 pandemic is installed. Considering the current situation, we believe that it will not be possible to organize our yearly conference normally. On the one hand, the pandemic will stay with us for long. In addition, financial constraints in universities and research institutes will affect attendance at face-to-face conferences. Therefore, after careful analysis, we decided to carry out IEEE ICA_ACCA2020 in virtual form at the beginning of 2021.
Papers can be presented in Spanish, Portuguese or English, according to the format and additional instructions available here, with title, abstract in English and the rest in the language that you choose; within the 7 tracks already defined. As we did last year, the presentations of the accepted papers must be made with a power point PPT in English and speaking online in your own language (in parallel sessions). The narrated video PPT must be placed on a server beforehand. If for any reason you have internet problems, your video ppt will replace your online presentation. Questions will be answered online or by email, in case of internet fails.
This Conference is organized by the “Chilean Association of Automatic Control ACCA”, and Chilean IEEE Chapters of CS, SMC and Education.
We invite you to submit papers to IEEE ICA_ACCA2020, via EasyChair. Call for Papers is attached.
In case of any doubt, please contact Prof. Durán or Prof. Lefranc via email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com.
We look forward to your participation.
