2019-nCoV outbreak


AICAS2020 organizing committee and IEEE have been monitoring the developing Coronavirus COVID-2019.

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. For this reason, we previously announced our intention to postpone AICAS2020 to a later date. Given the current uncertainty about travel safety, we decided to organize AICAS2020 as a fully virtual event.

We are now happy to announce that VIRTUAL AICAS2020 is scheduled to be held on August 31st - September 4TH 2020.

Please find below some important information:

  • The event will be fully virtual
  • The preliminary program is available, time slots refer to the Central European Summer Time (CEST).
  • The time slots have been reduced to 3 hours per day in the afternoon (early morning in America, late evening in Asia) in the attempt to favour live participation
  • Because the conference is virtual, we will be reimbursing the registration payment but each paper will still need a registration payment of 150 Euros. Therefore some of you will only receive a partial reimbursement.

  • To get the reimbursement, we ask that you fill out the google form confirming which paper(s) your registration will support (if any) and the reimbursement method. Default reimbursement will be done with the same method used for payment of the registration.

  • More information about how to attend the virtual event will be posted to the website and sent by email to all registered attendees. STAY TUNED!

We understand that some attendees might have other commitments for the new dates, therefore we will give the opportunity to record their presentation and answer to possible questions through the conference app.

We also understand that people who did not register for the previous dates might want to attend. For this reason, we will re-open the registration website. More information will be available soon.

We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with any questions you may have.

Call for demos


AICAS2020 invites proposals for Live Demonstrations, showing interactive and tangible form of presentation of working systems that will be directly experienced by conference attendees. With Live Demonstrations, presenters have the opportunity to show direct proof of their working systems and to create a lasting impression in a session that is very well attended.

Prospective presenters should submit a one-page description of the demonstration using the same page formatting as for regular AICAS papers. Each Live Demonstration must be based either on already published work or on a paper submitted to AICAS2020. It is mandatory to include a reference to at least one earlier publicly accessible publication of the work, or the ID of the submitted paper.

Demonstration Setup

A power plug, a table and poster board will be provided. Demonstrators are responsible for the transportation of their own equipment to the meeting site. Indicate any special requirements which the Demo Chairs should be aware of.
