ANNOUNCEMENT

Given the existing uncertain situation around COVID-19, the EMPOWER Program Committee is of the opinion that it may be difficult to organize a physical/hybrid conference even during February 2021, as was notified earlier. The Program Committee has, therefore, decided to postpone the conference to October 2021 while retaining IIIT Bangalore as the host institute for EMPOWER 2021. The dates for the conference will be decided by December 2020, and announced on this website. Call for participation for various tracks will also be announced here in due course (most likely starting December 2020). Inconvenience caused to our participants and other stakeholders due to this rescheduling is regretted
