ITiP 2020 is co-sponsored by the IEEE Information Technology Special Technical Community.
Special Technical Communities (STCs) are technical, educational and professional resources on emerging topics that are outside or beyond the scope of the Computer Society’s Technical Committees. They are online communities of computing professionals who share a common technical, career, or technical interest, and which can be created around any set of ideas relevant to the members and professional colleagues of the Computer Society. Their membership is open to both members and non-members and available at no cost. Furthermore, anyone, member or not, can participate and can propose the creation of new STCs. For information about IEEE Computer Society Special Technical Communities, please visit https://www.computer.org/communities/special-technical-communities.
