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.

We are now happy to announce that AICAS2020 is scheduled to be held on August 31st - September 2nd 2020.

Please find below some important information:
  • The location will not change;
  • All paid registrations will be considered valid for the new dates.

We understand that some attendees might have other commitments for the new dates, therefore we will give the opportunity to:

  • ask a qualified colleague to present their paper on their behalf even if this person is not an author of the paper (this can be another attendee of the conference or a colleague using the author’s full registration on his/her behalf);
  • or
  • present the paper remotely (we will send technical information separately before the conference).

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:

  • Early registration fees will be applied from March, 20th to April, 20th;
  • Late registrations will be applied from April, 21st to July, 31st, when we will close the online registration website.

In the next months and until the conference, together with the IEEE’s Event Emergency Response Team (EERT), we will keep monitoring the Coronavirus outbreak evolution and its potential risks.

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.

Lecture presentations


The duration of a presentation slot is 20 minutes.  Please target your lecture for a duration of a maximum of 15 minutes for the presentation plus approx. 5 minutes for questions from the audience.

IMPORTANT

Personal laptops are not allowed for presentations.

ALL presentations MUST be uploaded at the Speakers Ready Room (3rd floor, near Sala Libeccio) at least 90 min before the presentation or the day before for early morning sessions in the following day. The Preview Room will be open daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.

An LCD projector & computer will be available in every session room for regular presentations. 

Presenters are invited to report to the session chair 15 minutes BEFORE the start of the session. Please, take with you a short note with your name, role and institutional affiliation so that the chiar can mention this in his introduction

Technical assistance will be available.

  • The slide size should be in 16:9 format
  • The presentation software supports the projection of the following formats: Windows: Office Power Point 2019 ‐ .ppt .pptx, PDF
  • It is absolutely necessary that all files (movies / video / images) be stored in the same folder as the presentation. To avoid filename conflict, please put your paper ID as the prefix of the filename for each file.
  • Please use simple slides and with a font size of at least 14 points.
  • We suggest to include images in .gif, .jpg or .png format, in order to have light weight presentations. Other formats may be accepted only upon preliminary check with the Preview Room technical staff.
  • Please do not exceed 100MB for each presentation.
  • If you want to use movies, please embed movie files into your Power Point file or bring your movie files. We do not recommend including online streaming contents. Movies must have the following extensions: .avi, .wmv, .mpeg. Windows Media Player is used to play video files. Movies created with proprietary codecs from professional machines, will not be viewable.
  • We suggest inserting no more than one movie for each slide, with a recommended maximum size of 100 MB for the total presentation, including all movie files.
  • In order to quickly upload presentations at the Preview Room, we recommend the following media support: USB memory or Hard Disk.

Poster presentations


Posters will be displayed at the Exhibit Module 8, 3rd floor.

We expect that at least one author stands by the poster for the duration of the poster session. This is essential both to present your work to the attendees and to make sure that your presence is verified by one of the session chairs.

Please do not leave your poster during the poster session, otherwise, your paper will be regarded as no show.

Posters should be set-up at least one hour before the session and removed after the session. AICAS2020 and the congress organizers will be not responsible for posters that are not removed after the session or that are damaged.

Poster boards will be numbered, and the assignment will be indicated on site. 

The size of poster board is 236cm (high) x 95cm (wide). You are free to choose a single poster that fits on the given board size, the best is A0 (portrait). Materials to hang the poster will be made available on-site. Our staff will be available onsite to assist you.

Live Demo presentations


Live demonstrations will take place at Exhibit Module 8, 3rd floor.

We expect that at least one author stands by the live demo for the duration of the session. This is essential both to present your work to the attendees and to make sure that your presence is verified by one of the session chairs.

Please do not leave your demo during the session, otherwise, your paper will be regarded as no show.

Live demos should be set-up at least one hour before the session and all equipment removed after the session. AICAS2020 and the congress organizers will be not responsible for equipment nor posters that are not removed after the session or that are damaged.

Poster boards will be numbered, and the assignment will be indicated on site. 

A table, 2 chairs, 1 poster board (236 cm high x 95 cm wide, A0 portrait poster size) and three power outlets (Type-F, 220V) will be made available to each presenter. Internet connectivity is available only via high-speed WiFi (shared with other attendees).

Materials to hang posters will be made available on-site.

For further questions and needs, please contact the Demo Co-Chairs (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
