The IEEE/IAS International Conference on Industry Applications (INDUSCON) is an international conference held every two years in Brazil, brought by the South Brazil section of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers – IEEE and the local Chapter of IEEE Industry Applications Society. Exceptionally, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Induscon 2020 has been postponed to the year 2021 and will be entirely in virtual format.

The INDUSCON 2021 will take place in the city of São Paulo from August 16-18, 2021. This edition of the conference will be organized by Escola Politécnica Universidade de São Paulo and its main theme will be “Innovation in the time of Covid-19”.

Consistent with this theme, we will have plenary keynotes from leading industrial and academic scientists, who will give forward looking visions as well as historical perspectives on our field. A broad array of scientific tracks and mini-symposiums will cover diverse topics of cutting-edge research and innovation in the diverse topics related to Covid-19 pandemic and its consequences.

The conference program will feature: tutorials, workshops, invited sessions, industry sessions, oral sessions, sessions for students and young professionals, sessions for entrepreneurs, and exhibits from vendors and universities.

Tutorials

Tutorials involve formal presentation of the principles (e.g., theory, methodology, and tools) behind an established research area to enhance the knowledge and skills of the participants in that area.

We particularly welcome proposals that cover material or use presentation formats that are not found within the main conference that increase the interest for the event, enhance interaction and discussion amongst participants, and make useful connections to fields outside of industry.

Interested organizers of Tutorials should submit a brief proposal through the PaperCept Conference Management System. A proposal should include the title, list of instructors and their affiliations, an overview of the event (e.g., abstract, keywords, objectives, motivation, content, structure, and tentative program), and intended audience, as well as role and brief bio of each instructor. The proposal should also clarify the type and duration of the event (half-day or full-day).

The Program Committee reserves the right to reject tutorial proposals (based on content), or to cancel accepted proposals (due to low numbers of pre-registrations).
