Registration Upgrades

Several people have informed us that they would like to travel and attend the conference physically in Zurich, but are not yet sure whether or not they actually can or are allowed to travel. To cope with this situation, we  have created the possibility to upgrade a remote registration to one with physical presence in Zurich. This way, participants who would like to travel, but do not know yet whether they actually can, have the opportunity to register for remote participation at early registration rates and upgrade this registration to a physical one later. Upgrading will be possible until August 21, 2020.

Please note: Only remote individual registrations can be upgraded. Upgrades from remote to physical participation are valid for the registrant only. If a second person was specified in the remote registration, this person cannot participate remotely any more after the upgrade.

The rates are listed below. They will remain effective until August 21.

*Members of IEEE, IEEE CS, and ACM. Employees/students of UZH and FHNW.

Upgraded registrations include:

  • All Conference Events  upgrades: Admission to all sessions from Mon Aug 31 to Fri Sept 4; coffee breaks and lunches on these days, conference reception, conference banquet, free public transport ticket for the city of Zurich, valid from Aug 31 to Sept 4; electronic conference proceedings.
  • Main Conference  upgrades: Admission to all sessions from Wed Sept 2 to Fri Sept 4; coffee breaks and lunches on these days, conference reception, conference banquet, free public transport ticket for the city of Zurich, valid from Aug 31 to Sept 4; electronic conference proceedings.
  • Monday or Tuesday Events upgrades: Admission to all sessions on Mon Aug 31 or Tue Sept 1, respectively; coffee breaks and lunch on that day; no social events.

Upgrades are valid for the registrant only. If the upgraded remote registration had specified a second person for remote participation, this second person cannot participate remotely any more after the upgrade.

Author Registration Policy

Every accepted submission to RE’20 (including all workshops) must be covered by a registration at regular rates.

  • A “Main Conference” registration covers one accepted conference paper in any of these tracks: research, industrial innovation, RE@Next, journal-first*, or posters and demos. It includes remote access (for the registrant and up to one further person from the same institution) for registrants who cannot travel to Zurich.
  • An “All Events” registration covers one accepted conference paper in any of these tracks: research, industrial innovation, RE@Next, journal-first*, or  posters and demos and up to two accepted papers in workshops W1-W12 or the Doctoral Symposium. It includes remote access (for the registrant and up to one further person from the same institution) for registrants who cannot travel to Zurich.
  • A “Monday Events” registration covers one accepted paper in workshops W1-W6. For registrants who cannot travel to Zurich, this registration includes remote access to all events on Mon Aug 31 (for the registrant and up to one further person from the same institution).

For registrants who cannot travel to Zurich, this registration includes remote access to all events on Tue  Sept 1 (for the registrant and up to one further person from the same institution).

  • Authors who have more than one contribution accepted for the main conference will receive a discount of CHF 300 upon request. Eligible Authors are requested to claim the discount prior to registering (send e-mail to info@re20.org).

Student authors are allowed to register at student rates. Student authors who have been accepted as student volunteers will receive a free “All Events” registration (which is good for covering papers as specified above).
