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 selection process will run as planned. The timely
publication of accepted papers in the proceedings of
GECON 2020 will be published in the LNCS series of
Springer as announced.

Due to the new online format, GECON maintains open the

encouraging alternative forms of participation that can
increase discussions of technical topics and new ideas.

We solicit new topics and birds-of-a-feather session
proposals. Deadline for proposals is August 15th, 2020.


GECON 2020 builds upon the very successful tradition

solicits contributions that are interdisciplinary,
combining business and economic aspects with
engineering and computer science related themes.
