Success story of ETFA 2020 – the first hybrid IES conference in challenging times!

The 25th edition of the IEEE International Conference on Emerging Technologies and Factory Automation (ETFA) was held in Vienna from Sep. 8-11. Not only in Vienna, actually, but worldwide. The COVID pandemic necessitated to explore new ways and invent a new mode of operation. The lockdown period during spring and the lack of opportunities to meet in person created a strong wish within the community for a “real” conference. With a view to worldwide travel restrictions, going back to normal was of course unrealistic, and so the organizers decided to try a hybrid delivery: on site in Vienna for all ...
