We offer a comprehensive program, with Plenary sessions and keynote presentations, and several concurrent sessions. These include traditional presentations, lightning talks, discussions, and interacting.

Our event will have the same structure because as the previous editions, because we want the Virtual Conference to feel as much like an in-person event as possible.

Virtual conferences might lack the intimacy of a physical gathering, but they democratize access offering the attendees the possibility to connect with each other providing an interactive, collaborative networking, information-sharing and manly the same benefits as on-site events with less cost and less risk. The shift to online gatherings is part of a larger trend in reimagining experiences centered on human interaction at a time when large gatherings are mostly banned.

We solicit presentation through a Call for papers, just as for the previous conferences.
Concurrent sessions will be organized from accepted abstracts. The range of topics proposed for submission is not limited, the authors may be encouraged by the Programme Committee to organize also specific sessions on topics different from the ones indicated below, for which you are cordially invited to send us your proposals.

Conference proceedings
AIEE will publish the conference proceedings on-line on the conference website, in one volume with open access. The proceedings will contain the abstracts, it is not obligatory to submit the full paper, unless the author is interested to publish it.
