THE CONNECTIVITY REVOLUTION
Due to the world COVID-19 pandemic, the Steering Committee of EuCNC 2020 has decided to change the format of the conference to an on-line virtual one, instead of the usual face-to-face physical one in Dubrovnik. In this new format, there will be no Workshops, Tutorials and Special Sessions. On the other hand, papers submitted to Regular Sessions that are accepted (the review process is being finalised) will be invited to be presented in an on-line mode, after which will be submitted to IEEE Xplore as usual; accepted posters will also be presented on-line. The format of Keynotes and Panels is being finalised with the speakers. Further details will be provided as soon as possible. We do regret all the inconveniences that this decision causes, but we expect that all colleagues understand that it was not feasible to hold the conference in the usual format.
EuCNC 2020 is the 29th edition of a successful series of a conference in the field of telecommunications, sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society and the European Association for Signal Processing, and supported by the European Commission. This conference is one of the most prominent communications and networking conferences in Europe, which efficiently brings together cutting-edge research and world-renown industries and businesses. EuCNC attracts more than 600 delegates each year and an exhibition space of more than 1,500 m2. The conference focuses on various aspects of 5G communications systems and networks, including cloud and virtualisation solutions, management technologies, and vertical application areas. It targets to bring together researchers from all over the world to present the latest research results, and it is one of the main venues for demonstrating the results of research projects, especially from successive European R&D programmes co-financed by the European Commission.
