IEEE WCCI 2020 is proceeding as planned for July in Glasgow. Like you, the organizing committee is actively monitoring the global situation regarding the spread of COVID-19. We are aware of the risks of large gatherings, especially those that attract attendees from around the world such as our conference. We are actively exploring options and developing alternative plans should a change in IEEE WCCI 2020 be warranted.

Currently, we are working to provide the possibility of remote presentation for authors who are unable to travel due to restrictions imposed by their countries in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Should the situation change, it may become necessary to move to 100% virtual conference. In this case, the registration will be reduced and authors refunded accordingly.

In either case, all papers for which authors have registered, and are presented (either in person or virtually) will be included in IEEE Xplore.

All updates will be shared in a timely manner via our website, through email to authors of accepted papers, and via social media.
