IEEE International Conference on Automation Science and Engineering (CASE)


Important news: The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. IEEE has been monitoring the developing COVID-19 pandemic (Coronavirus). 

The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19 (Coronavirus) to be a pandemic, many governments have enacted travel bans and numerous state and local governments are prohibiting large or even moderately-sized public gatherings. Such bans on travel and public gatherings are likely to increase in number and scope in the coming weeks. 

After studying and evaluating the announcements, guidance, and news released by relevant national departments, we are sorry to announce that the in-person gathering of CASE 2020, scheduled to be held 20-21 August 2020 in Hong Kong has been cancelled. 

CASE 2020 will now be held as a virtual conference, to be held 20-21 August 2020. 

Information of the virtual platform will be confirmed in the coming days. Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and please contact with any questions you may have.
