Virtual Presentations

In consideration of the COVID-19 pandemic situation that is currently going through worldwide, the SmartTech-IC conference organizing committee have decided that the SmartTeh-IC 2021 will be held in a hybrid format with both onside and virtual versions to accommodate their participants, which will depend on local government management guidelines for COVID-19 pandemic until the conference dates. This decision will allow many more people to participate in our conference and prioritizing their health, safety, and wellbeing (by priorizing Virtual Assistence mode). In this way, Virtual Presentations will have the same validity (peer review, publication, certification, awards, etc.) as the face-to-face conference and with the capability to interact with session participants. The sessions will be streamed online real time and participants will be able to interact with asynchronously prior to, during and after the conference.
