The significant impact of COVID19 has placed impossible constraints on our community’s ability to join in our favourite meeting place of Munich, Germany. CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2021 will take place in virtual format on the scheduled dates from Monday 21 June to Friday 25 June 2021. The stakeholder societies and Messe Munich have plenty of experience and significant resources for making CLEO®/Europe-EQEC 2021 a successful and exciting event at any circumstances. We believe the online conference format will allow authors to present timely their work whilst still providing many of the benefits of a face to face meeting. In addition, presentations will be more widely available, yielding a greater exposure of their work.

Conference language:
English will be the official language of the conference.

IEEE defines plagiarism as the reuse of someone else’s prior ideas, processes, results, or words without explicitly acknowledging the original author and source. It is important for all IEEE authors to recognize that plagiarism in any form, at any level, is unacceptable and is considered a serious breach of professional conduct, with potentially severe ethical and legal consequences. To reuse someone else’s work and make it appear to be your own denies the original author credit for his or her contributions to the research and to Society. If you neglect to properly credit the work you have reused, either by choice or by accident, you are committing plagiarism.
