We consider the new online format to offer opportunities 
for exploring new ways of improving the interaction and 
feedback of the audience with speakers and promoting 
networking among the conference participants. 

The registration fee of the online conference has been 
reduced to 250€ for one author of each publication, 
100 € for participants, and 50€ for students.

The timely publication of accepted papers in the

in the LNCS series of Springer as announced. 


GECON 2020 builds upon the very successful tradition
