The conference theme For SoutheastCon 2020 is “Engineering Vision 2020 – The Future is Bright”. We look forward to an exciting IEEE SoutheastCon 2020 and hope that our innovations will enhance your technology experience. We also hope that you will be able to find time before or after the conference to enjoy the many exciting experiences that the Raleigh area has to offer. SoutheastCon brings together Computer Scientists, Electrical, and Computer Engineering professionals, faculty and students to share the latest information through technical sessions, tutorials, and exhibits. It is the most influential conference in Region 3 for promoting awareness of the technical contributions made by our profession to the advancement of engineering science and to the community. As usual, attendance and technical program participation from areas outside IEEE Region 3 are encouraged and welcomed.
IEEE SoutheastCon 2020 invites prospective authors to submit their original technical work on any aspects of engineering, science, and technology of current interest to the conference. Topic areas appropriate for technical program submissions include, but are not limited to, the following six tracks:
Power System Engineering

SoutheastCon 2020 Proceedings will be published by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS) of IEEE. All the presented papers are to be submitted to the IEEE Xplore.
This year, IEEE SoutheastCon 2020 will distinguish regular from poster papers; a regular paper appears as a complete work in the proceedings and is presented in a technical session at the conference, whereas a poster is published only as a 2-page extended abstract and less formally presented as a poster. At least one author for each accepted paper/poster must register as an author for, attend, and present the work at IEEE SoutheastCon 2020. All paper submissions will be checked for plagiarism and fully peer reviewed (targeting at least 3 reviews per paper).
Submitted Papers should describe original work that has not been submitted (or accepted) for publication elsewhere. They will be evaluated based on their scientific and technical contribution, originality, and relevance. Submissions of regular research papers must be in the PDF format (IEEE 2-column, no more than 8 pages).

Covering Expenses for Paper Presentation & Publication
Please read carefully the following information concerning the registration procedure that is presented in the Author Instructions, especially if you are the prospective presenter of an accepted paper or if you need to guarantee inclusion of your accepted paper in the proceedings. An accepted paper will be published in the program and proceedings only if the full-fee registration payment for one of the authors is received and correctly processed by January 10, 2020 – no exceptions. In addition, the author must attend the conference and present the paper. Papers that are not presented will not be published. No exceptions.
Only an author registration at the full IEEE member or non-member rate are allowed to cover the presentation & publication of an accepted paper. To qualify for IEEE member rates, the membership number must be provided in the registration form. The student registration rates do NOT qualify for the publication of an accepted paper. If the author registering to cover the paper publication is a student, he/she has to pay the appropriate IEEE member or non-member fee. IEEE Members (e.g., Students, Life Members of the IEEE) cannot use the discounted rates to cover the publication of an accepted paper and will have to pay the full author registration fee.
One author registration will cover the publication expenses of only ONE accepted paper. Authors presenting up to 2 additional papers without a co-author registered at the full author rate are required to pay a surcharge of $100 USD for each additional paper. Authors presenting more than 3 papers must pay an additional full author registration fee for the 4th paper, $100 USD for the 5th, etc. For each additional accepted paper associated to the same registration, a $100 USD fee will be charged. In the case no registration has been received and correctly processed to cover the paper publication, the conference organizers will contact the authors before the paper is removed from the proceedings.
