Information for Authors - (updated 6/18/2020)

Dear 2020 PES GM Author:

If you are not already aware, the 2020 IEEE PES General Meeting will be a virtual event. While this was not our original plan we feel that this is a great opportunity for you to present your work.

In order for your paper to be included in IEEE Xplore poste conference, you must submit a video presentation. We are still finalizing the details as we transition to a virtual event but here are some general guidelines for your reference.

One author from each paper must register and pay the registration fee for the conference.

You must complete and submit a video presentation in MP4 format.  The length of the presentation will depend on the session type. Session information was sent to all authors via MIRA on June 18, 2020.

You must use the PES Microsoft PowerPoint template that was emailed to you on June 18, 2020 via MIRA for your presentation, no slides can be added to the template.

Your video presentation will be posted on the PES General Meeting Virtual conference site. The video will be available for 25 days. While the video is available all PES GM attendees will be able to view the presentation and submit questions.

Provided you register (payment in full required at the time of registration) for the conference and submit the MP4 video of your presentation on the PES PPT your paper will be posted to IEEE Xplore post conference.  We expect the On24 site to be available for you to upload the video of your presentation between July 1, 2020 and July 15, 2020.

Author registrations must be completed by July 19, 2020.  If you do not register with payment in full for the conference and submit the MP4 video of your presentation by the appropriate deadlines above, your paper will not be posted to Xplore post conference. However, it will be an IEEE copyrighted paper and thus cannot be submitted to any other conference or publication as defined by the IEEE PES “No Show” policy.

If you decide you want to withdraw your paper and submit it to another conference in the future, you must notify me by 11:59 PM Eastern time June 18, 2020.

Please note any paper not withdrawn by 11:59 pm Eastern time June 18, 2020 will be an IEEE copyrighted paper since it will be published in the conference proceedings, but not Xplore and cannot be submitted to or published in any other conference or publication.

Thank you.
IEEE 2020 GM Steering Committee
