ECCE2020 WiE Initiatives

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a new IEEE policy has been enforced for all the near future travel grants, causing them to be temporarily suspended. In the past, more than 60 IAS and PELS members were awarded travel grants to attend ECCE 2017 2018 and 2019. We hope to be back soon!!

In the meanwhile, the WiE Chairs have proposed a new Initiative, called the WiE-SEP2020: Supporting ECCE Participation.

Starting from Aug 27th the submission of applications will be open for 3 weeks.

The initiative is mainly addressed to professional IEEE women members (not to students), from all over the world, to foster participation in the virtual conference.
