The WCCI 2020 Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the full virtual conference program schedule.

We have opted for a format where each contributed paper or talk, for both oral and poster presentations, will take the form of a pre-recorded video, available during the original dates of the conference and on-demand after the conference concludes.



Please note that all program timings according to UK time.


 Live Sessions via Zoom

On-demand via Virtual Conference Platform

  • Poster session papers
  • All live sessions will also be made available in the platform

All presentations will be pre-recorded and made available through our on-demand Virtual Conference Platform in which presentations will be made available to all paid attendees.

IJCNN 2020

The International Joint Conference on Neural Networks (IJCNN) covers a wide range of topics in the field of neural networks, from biological neural networks to artificial neural computation.


The IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (IEEE CEC) covers all topics in evolutionary computation from theory to real-world applications.


The IEEE International Conference on Fuzzy Systems (FUZZ-IEEE) covers all topics in fuzzy systems from theory to real-world applications.



The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After studying and evaluating the announcements, guidance, and news released by relevant national departments, we have made the decision, along with guidance from the IEEE CIS Leadership, that WCCI 2020 will continue as scheduled on 19-24 July, by being converted to an exciting, fully virtual conference, and will not take place physically in Glasgow.

Author Presentations: In order to accommodate our authors, WCCI 2020 will be providing the ability for accepted authors to present their work through an on-demand virtual platform. These presentations will be made available to all paid attendees and will allow accepted papers to be published in IEEE Xplore.

Virtual Conference Format

The Plenary, Keynote, Panel, Workshop, Tutorial and Oral sessions will be made available in a live format, via Zoom. There will also be virtual coffee breaks and a virtual tour of Glasgow. ALL presentations will be pre-recorded and will be made available through an on-demand platform in which all presentations will be made available to all paid attendees

We hope you all stay safe and well, and look forward to working with you all to put on an exciting virtual WCCI – which will also include a virtual experience of Glasgow!

With Best Regards,
