Change to Virtual Presentations due to COVID-19 Concerns

After studying and evaluating the announcements, guidance, and news released by relevant governmental and health authorities, we are pivoting from an in-person event and adopting a fully virtual format.

  1. Submitted papers: If you have already submitted your paper, you do not need to do anything at the moment.  In due time, if your paper is accepted, we will provide you information on how you will present your paper to the PowerAfrica community.  Authors will need to adhere to the same guidelines for presentation as part of the virtual event to be permitted publication within IEEE Xplore.
  2. Papers not submitted yet: If you have not submitted your paper yet, we are extending the deadline to June 20th, 2020 to accommodate disrupted schedules, as well as to welcome individuals who can now publish without a need to travel and at lower registration fees than for the onsite event
