Please know that our thoughts are with those affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. We recognize the impact that COVID-19 is having, and will continue to have, on our SC community.

Your Health & Safety Is a Priority

The health and safety of the SC family – participants and volunteers alike – are our first priority.

We are working with our stakeholders to produce an event that will be every bit as creative, inspiring, and meaningful as past SC conferences.

We continue to closely monitor specific travel advisories through official channels, which include the World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. State Department, as well as safety guidelines at the local, state, national, and international levels.

We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you in November. For those who prefer to attend virtually, a digital experience is offered.

Before You Travel

Before traveling to the conference, we recommend that you stay informed of any information your local health agencies may make available and take reasonable precautions to protect yourself. IEEE continues to closely monitor this dynamic situation and will provide updates with any developments.

On-Site in Dallas

We are committed to following or exceeding regional jurisdiction guidelines and rules in maintaining a safe environment for our attendees.

We are working closely with the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center Dallas and surrounding venues hosting official SC22 programming to ensure there are sufficient medical processes in place and sanitation products readily available.
