At this moment it is difficult to estimate the situation in October. The conference will take place anyway:
(1) either as planned in the city of the Hague,
(2) in virtual form or
(3) as a hybrid of the two previous options in case that travelling is possible to some extent.

If the first situation appears to be true we will allow – for those who cannot travel – an online presentation, and very likely a partial reimbursement of the registration fee. In such a case, and when a registration fee is paid, the paper will be published in IEEEXplore. 

Therefore we would like to ask all authors who are submitting a final version to register by the submission deadline of 22 May, otherwise, we cannot proceed with planning the conference program.

The early registration deadline of 1st September is only for those without a paper.

Information about the conference and COVID-19
Date: 23/4/2020

Due to the currently ongoing COVID-19 pandemic it is uncertain in which form the IEEE-PES-ISGT-Europe 2020 conference will be held in October. We, the conference local organizing committee and IEEE PES, ensure you that the conference will take place, (1) either as planned at the conference center in the Hague, (2) in virtual form, or (3) as a hybrid of these two options. All accepted papers for the conference will be published through IEEE Xplore, provided that the registration fee is paid and the paper is presented at the conference. As conference organizers, we are striving for a very good conference – no matter the form. Since at this moment we don’t have enough information about the situation in October, when the conference takes place, we have postponed the early registration deadline to September 1, 2020.

For authors, the final paper submission deadline remains on May 22, 2020.

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. We will continue to monitor official travel advisories related to the COVID-19 pandemic (Coronavirus) and update the event website to keep you informed.
