ISIE2021- Kyoto (The 30th International Symposium on Industrial Electronics)

20th (Sun) -23rd (Wed) June, 2021
Miyako Messe, Kyoto, Japan

For Authors

ISIE2021 moved from hybrid to full online conference.

With the development of COVID-19, the on-site conference was unfortunately cancelled due to the Japanese government declaring a state of emergency for pandemics in the metropolitan area and urban areas including Kyoto.
As a result, ISIE2021 moved from hybrid to full online conference.

All participation is required to attend their sessions online using Zoom and InfoVaya Virtual Platform.
