Anna University (AU) : We write with an update about the upcoming IEEE Conference on Norbert Wiener in the Twenty-First Century (21CW). The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. IEEE has been monitoring the developing COVID-19 pandemic (Coronavirus).

The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19 (Coronavirus) to be a pandemic, many governments have enacted travel bans, and numerous state and local governments are prohibiting large or even moderately-sized public gatherings. Such bans on travel and public gatherings are likely to increase in number and scope in the coming weeks.

After studying and evaluating the announcements, guidance, and news released by relevant national departments, we are sorry to announce that the 2020 21CW event, scheduled to be held at Anna University in Chennai, India in July 2020 will be postponed to next summer. We hope you will mark your calendar for the new conference dates of 22-25 July 2021.

As we develop a timeline for new paper submissions and conference registration, we will post updates on the 21CW website and EasyChair CFP page. We thank you for your understanding.

A note to authors: although COVID-19 disruptions have delayed our processing times, we are moving forward with peer review for submitted papers. You can expect notification of the status of your paper by 31 May 2020, and accepted papers will be included in the 2021 conference program and proceedings. If you wish to withdraw your submission in light of the extended timeline to publication, please let us know.

Again, we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused; please contact Conference Chair Prof. T.V. Gopal (+91 9840121302,, with any questions you may have.

On behalf of the 21CW Conference Committee

Prof. T V Gopal, Conference Chair
