The conference provides different tutorials, lectures and technical sections where the speakers can present and discuss their research results and innovations with their academic, scientific and industrial fellows. Keeping the tradition of the event, the papers submitted and approved will be sent for publication in the IEEE Xplore platform for international publicity. In this edition, papers written in English, in Portuguese and in Spanish will be sent for publication. The IEEE Xplore is indexed in three different platforms: Web of Science, Scopus and Google Scholar.

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.
