Hot Interconnects 2021 continues its tradition to offer world-class
tutorials held by internationally renowned experts in the area of

continue to monitor  official travel advisories related to the
Coronavirus and update the event website to keep you informed. We
encourage you to review the conference’s “Travel and Safety
