Note:
1- The topics listed under each theme are indicative only. The organizers will be glad to accommodate relevant topics that are not indicated at present.
2- ICEI 2020+1 seeks to ensure continuity of topics discussed in ICEI 2018. In addition to expanding the scope by adding new themes, we look forward to building upon and take forward theme(s) initiated in Jena.
