A Special Message on COVID-19 and Infrastructure Conference 2020 

IEEE has been monitoring the developing COVID-19 pandemic. The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. After studying and evaluating the announcements, guidance, and news released by relevant national departments, we are sorry to announce that the 2020 IEEE Infrastructure Conference, scheduled to be held on April 29-30, 2020, in San Francisco, CA has been cancelled.

While cancelling the physical gathering in April, we are currently evaluating alternatives to produce the event and content, potentially virtually or postponing it. Serving the needs of our authors and presenters remains an important aspect of our growing community. Please allow us time to address the cancellation and examine alternatives. We will shortly post the list of accepted papers and presentations.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and will provide updates as they become available. Please contact infra@ieee.org with any questions you may have.

About the Event

Why Infrastructure Matters - A Note From the Chair

Infrastructures are the backend, heart and foundations of many products and companies. What I've learned throughout my career is that creativity, innovations, understanding your customers, and researching other technologies are important factors when building and running infrastructure at different scales. The problem sets and challenges could vary based on the business, architecture and the scale of each company, however, the learnings can apply uniformly independent of what industry you are in.

Our goal for this conference is to bring folks that have been or interested to be involved in building and running infrastructure at any scale and create a community that we can all learn from each other. We hope we can share our stories, lessons learned and when it makes sense even start working together on standards. We also plan on having this conference focus on different topics and based on the feedback from the participants we will adjust the frequency, location and sessions.

The IEEE Infrastructure Conference Committees are comprised of talented individuals across a range of expertise who have voluntarily committed their time to make this event a success.

What Makes this Conference Different

  • Designed for and by practitioners, with speakers who have all led, managed or built large infrastructures themselves
  • An intimate, neutral environment for networking and learning with leaders from top technology companies
  • Convened by IEEE, the world's largest technical professional association dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity

If you're looking for answers, ideas, or the right people to connect with regarding infrastructure, this unique event is for you!
