The health and safety of our volunteers is the number one priority of our Society. The AESS Executive Committee is working diligently with IEEE to define a course of action that will take local regulations into consideration while ensuring that the hard work of our conference organizers and authors is not minimized by the impact of this pandemic.

This page will serve as a place to find the most recent announcements and updates from all of our conferences and events.

We want to keep all of you informed as best as possible, please continue to check this page for updates about upcoming conferences and events.

Wishing you the very best,

2020 IEEE Radar Conference (RadarConf20)
September 21-25, 2020
Florence, Italy

Since some of the constraints imposed by COVID-19 will likely remain in place in September, even if the situation has greatly improved and is expected to continue to do so in the next 2-3 months, RadarConf20 has been re-envisioned as a dual physical and virtual conference. We aim at getting the best of the two worlds, physical and virtual, while being very cognizant of the safety of our community. All authors and tutorial speakers will be asked to provide a recording of their presentations that will be used to create the virtual event. All authors who are subject to travel restrictions can then rely on enjoying the conference and the program virtually. The keynote speeches will be live streamed. We are taking all necessary precautions for social distancing, and all paper presentations held at the conference site will be at large meeting rooms. The physical technical program will run in parallel to the virtual event. Details of the physical and virtual technical programs will be available around the end of July.

2020 21st International Radar Symposium (IRS)
October 5-8, 2020
Warsaw, Poland

As the outbreak of the epidemic virus has been growing rapidly worldwide, many governments have made every effort to overcome the pandemic virus by discouraging public gatherings, closing schools and public places and suspending international flights. These may cause travel restrictions and inconveniences to the conference participants. In accordance with the public health policy taking into account the ongoing and developing situation with COVID -19, the decision has been made to postpone the MRW 2020. The conference will therefore not take place as originally scheduled, during May 18-21, 2020. Our plan at this time is to reschedule the conference for 5 – 8 October 2020.
