NCSLI/CPEM 2020 Virtual Technical Program

In the wake of the outbreak of COVID-19, many of you have expressed concerns about travel restrictions and the impossibility to attend the conference in person. To circumvent this issue, we are adding a virtual module to complement the NCSLI/CPEM 2020 in-person conference. Virtual sessions will be arranged by topic and each presentation will consist of a pre-recorded video uploaded by registered authors. A text-based discussion forum will be available on the platform for questions and answers. All registered attendees will have access to the full virtual conference content for an extended period, during and after the conference.

CPEM presenters

The presenter will be required to register to the Conference (either in-person or virtual module) by July 15, 2020 (deadline extended) to confirm their acceptance and be included in the Conference Program and Digest. Accepted authors who do not register by the deadline or omit to upload the video presentation prior to the conference starting date will not be included in the Conference Program or Digest (IEEExplore) and will be removed from the Accepted Papers Listing. All the accepted papers are elevated to a virtual “oral” presentation. Presenters must register prior to uploading their presentation on the virtual conference module. Details about presentation recording options and uploading instructions will be available soon. Video recording duration must not exceed 20 minutes. At this time, we encourage all presenters to prepare their extended paper for publication in the CPEM 2020 special issue of IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement. In addition to the virtual presentation, attendees may request to present their paper in person at the conference venue (either oral or poster).

Please contact the CPEM technical chair by email (callforpapersCPEM@icpem.org) to be added to the in-person conference program. The registration fee for the virtual module is $350 USD.

We hope that this price will make the conference attractive to all institutions and companies, and perhaps extend the participant base beyond the traditional CPEM attendees.
