IEEE International Symposium on Power Line Communications and its Applications
11-13 May 2020 // Virtual Conference




ISPLC 2020 Virtual Celebration notice

ISPLC 2020 was originally scheduled from 31 March to 3 April 2020 in Málaga (Spain). After the outbreak of COVID-19, the organizing committee confirmed the conference, but making it fully “virtual”, using online conferencing tools, without any physical participation of attendees. This virtual event was previously scheduled for 20-22 April 2020, but in order to move most of the activities planned for the physical event (Keynotes, Industry speeches and Panel) to the virtual event, and make it fruitful, some additional weeks have proven to be needed. Hence, the virtual event will now take place between 11-13 May 2020. The final program will be announced soon.

Virtual celebration of the conference ensures that presented papers can be published in IEEE Xplore. Authors will have to prepare and submit a presentation (15 to 20 minutes) file with voice narration. To this end, we suggest using the recording feature in Power Point (see instructions here). Conference registrants will be able to view slides over a 5 day period and interact with posted questions. The deadline for uploading presentations will be May 4 May 6, 2020. Instructions will follow.

Registration for the virtual event is now open. As a registered attendee of the conference, we ask you to select one of the following two options for registration:
– Virtual Conference Registration: As a registered attendee of the conference, you are already automatically registered for the virtual conference.  Once we have determined the new registration fee, we will process your refund accordingly and send a revised receipt for your records.

– Cancellation with Full Refund: If you cannot attend the virtual conference, you may elect to cancel your registration completely for a full refund. Please reach out directly to Melissa Smith, CMP, ( and we will process your request with full refund.

We look forward to your virtual participation.


The 2020 IEEE International Symposium on Power Line Communications and its Applications (IEEE ISPLC) is the 24rd symposium dedicated to scientific and technical advances in the field of communications over power lines. The event is sponsored by IEEE Communications Society and was planned to be held in Málaga, the capital of Costa del Sol (Spain).

The topics of the conference presentations will cover broadband and narrowband PLC systems, PLC for Smart Grids, indoor and outdoor applications, new standards for PLC, emerging PLC-related technologies, signal processing for communications, information and  communication theory aspects, networking aspects,etc.

While registration fees for the virtual event are considerably lower than for the physical one (check here), the vitual edition maintains the strong participation of industry that characterizes ISPLC, bringing together researchers, practitioners and users of PLC technologies.

The symposium will include a series of interactive industry speeches, panel talk, as well as a keynote. Sessions will be recorded for all attendees to view afterwards and a chat/forum for offline Q&A will be also available. The live events program advance is shown below.
