In light of growing concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, and after much thoughtful deliberation, ITEC North America and its sponsors, IEEE PELS, IEEE IAS, and IEEE PES have decided not to move forward with the in-person conference event originally scheduled for June 24-26, in Chicago, Illinois.
In making this difficult decision, paramount is the health, safety, and welfare of our community. We acknowledge that the increase in travel restrictions and the recently declared State of Emergency issued by the State of Illinois make it impossible to ensure the execution of a safe, high quality conference and on-site experience for our ITEC North America community and valued exhibitors.
Planning is already underway to assemble and deploy a virtual conference experience in the near future to preserve value for attendees, speakers, and exhibitors. Peer reviewed papers accepted by the conference will still be submitted to IEEE Xplore.
ITEC North America wishes to offer sincere thanks to its loyal exhibitors, sponsors, partners, and attendees for their patience and understanding as we move forward together.
