The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After evaluating the current COVID-19 situation, the decision has been made to transform the in-person component of IEEE SERVICES 2020 into an all-digital conference experience. Therefore, IEEE CLOUD 2020 will no longer take place in Beijing, China and will instead take place virtually. The conference dates remain as October 18 – 24, 2020. Proceedings will not be cancelled, and publications will continue as planned. All presentations are required to be given through digital means in 2020.

As we make this transition to a virtual event, we will be retooling the registration fee structure to reflect the new experience. There will be two registration systems. For participants outside China the payment will be made in USD. For participants reside inside China the payment can be made in RMB using another registration system constructed locally.
