ECOC 2020 will use an alternative format to stimulate interaction and to offer you, as an author, the best visibility and chances to get in touch with your peers.

We will use the full flexibility of the virtual format and try to cover all time-zones.

All accepted papers, extended papers and invited papers are scheduled in technical sessions comprising of 4 to 8 papers. These technical sessions are presented in 11 parallel virtual sessions running over the 4 ECOC 2020 days (Monday 7 December till Thursday 10 December). All of these technical sessions are scheduled a first time from 08:00 till 11:00 in the morning (Central European Time) and then exactly repeated the same day in the early evening from 18:00 till 21:00 (Central European Time).

As morning and evening sessions will be identical, this concept allows participants from nearly all time zones to attend at least 1 of these in a comfortable time-frame for themselves.


All times below are Central European Time (at the time of ECOC 2020 this will be UTC+1)
