Calls for Participation

Demonstrate your knowledge and experience with infrastructure and artificial intelligence by speaking at IEEE Infrastructure Conference, 29-30 April 2020 in San Francisco, CA.

The needs of infrastructure are quickly evolving as companies and businesses migrate their systems to the Cloud and meet the requirements of various compliance and regulations. In order to best serve clients and the needs, engineers focused on infrastructure are displaying innovative and new ways to solve bigger problems. We seek to bring these minds together for how you are evolving infrastructure and how you are taking into account the shift to Cloud, technologies that incorporate Artificial Intelligence to meet the growing demands.  

IEEE Infrastructure Conference will have both traditional papers and presentations only.

Compared to traditional conferences, this event focuses on industry: it is by industry and for industry. We invite industry, academic and government authors who focus on the following criteria are also very welcome:

  • Lessons learned from migrating and/or deploying new technology
  • Learning from failures
  • Toolchains, DevOps, support, etc.
  • Experience with security, performance, scale, and reliability
