The organizing committee of GECON 2020 has decided all
sessions will be held exclusively online!

We consider the new online format to offer opportunities
for exploring new ways of improving the interaction and
feedback of the audience with speakers and promoting
networking among the conference participants.

The registration fee of the online conference has been
reduced to 250€ for one author of each publication,
100 € for participants, and 50€ for students.

The selection process will run as planned. The timely
publication of accepted papers in the proceedings of
GECON 2020 will be published in the LNCS series of
Springer as announced.

Due to the new online format, GECON maintains open the
proposal for special sessions. With the objective of
encouraging alternative forms of participation that can
increase discussions of technical topics and new ideas.

We solicit new topics and birds-of-a-feather session
proposals. Deadline for proposals is August 15th, 2020.


GECON 2020 builds upon the very successful tradition
of the conference previous editions
(http://www.gecon-conference.org) since 2003. GECON
solicits contributions that are interdisciplinary,
combining business and economic aspects with
engineering and computer science related themes.
