COVID-19 Update

IEEE Computer Society and the IEEE CSF 2020 Organizing Committee have been monitoring the developing COVID-19 situation.

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our top priority. After studying and evaluating the announcements, guidance, and news released by relevant national departments, we are announcing that the IEEE CSF 2020, scheduled to be held in-person in Boston, MA, will now be converted into an all-digital conference experience. The dates of the conference will remain the same.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. More details regarding the conference and online registration will be available soon.


Online registration for CSF 2020 (and affiliated workshops) is expected to open in April.

Student Registration Scholarships

Thanks to the generosity and sponsorship of the National Science Foundation, we have a limited number of scholarships to award to students to assist with registration costs.

We encourage applications from students from a wide variety of institutions, diverse backgrounds, and first time attendees. Due to restrictions on the travel sponsorship, the majority of scholarships will be given to students enrolled in U.S. institutions, but we also have funds to cover the participation of a limited number of students from international institutions. Undergraduate and graduate students will be considered.

We will post details on this page about the application process for a student travel scholarship once registration opens.

Visa Support Letters

Since CSF 2020 is an all-digital conference, we will not be issuing visa support letters.
