SeGAH 2020 - Fully Online Conference - 12th to 14th August 2020

Upon careful evaluation of the current level of uncertainty caused by COVID-19 and the conditions in August to hold the conference at the Centre for Digital Media in Vancouver, the organizers of SeGAH 2020 have decided to change the entire conference to a fully online event. This decision does not affect the conference review, publication, indexing, presentation and discussion process, which will follow IEEE guidelines. Considering the reduction in organisation costs that this decision entails, all registration costs of SeGAH2020 will be reduced by 50%. Submission deadlines have also been extended to May 10, to allow authors that had decided not to submit their works because of traveling concerns extra time to get their submission in. Details concerning online activities will be provided on July 12th.
