We are now the North American Flagship conference of the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS).

On behalf of the organizing committee for the 63rd IEEE International Midwest Symposium on Circuits and Systems we are pleased to invite you to MWSCAS 2020 to be held at the Springfield Sheraton hotel in Springfield Massachusetts, August 9th – 12th 2020. MWSCAS is the oldest Circuits and Systems Symposium sponsored by IEEE and is now the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society North American flagship conference.

Our conference theme this year is Electrical and Computer Engineering: The Future is What We Do! With focus on the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence. MWSCAS 2020 will include oral and poster sessions, student paper contest, tutorials given by experts in circuits and systems, and special sessions. Conference session topics include all areas of electronic circuits and systems covering the latest innovations. There are eleven tracks – Analog Circuits and Systems, Digital Circuits and Systems, Communications Circuits and Systems, RF and Wireless Circuits and Systems, Sensor Circuits and Systems, Converter Circuits and Systems, Signal and Image Processing, Hardware Design, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Internet of Things (IoT), Hardware Security, Smart Power. Each track has multiple sessions, details are provided in the Call for Papers.

Tutorials will be available on Sunday August 9th to provide an opportunity to quickly get up to speed in specific areas of circuits and systems appropriate for both experts and those new to the field.

Springfield, the 3rd largest City in Massachusetts and the 4th largest in all of New England, is a City of many attributes. It has been known as the “City of Firsts” – a moniker earned through a history of innovation, including America’s first Armory and military arsenal, the first American made automobile and the first radio station, to list just a few. Springfield may be best known for two other innovations – the birthplace of basketball and of Theodor Geisel, better known as “Dr. Seuss”. It is also home to several institutions of higher learning, including Western New England University — a university that is much more than its educational offerings. With a strategic plan of Individual Focus, Global Perspectives, the university’s focus on a personal approach to education sets the road map as it moves into a new decade of the 21st century, having celebrated its centennial year in 2019.

Downtown Springfield lies on the bank of the Connecticut River. The conference hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the city’s downtown, just minutes away the area’s top restaurants, entertainment and attractions. It is in close proximity to the following attractions

MGM Springfield Resort & Casino, Main Street with Restaurants, Retail Shopping, Movie Theater and Bowling Alley
Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame
The Springfield Museums lies on a quadrangle walkable from the meeting property. The five museums cover Science, History, Art, and the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss. Just down the block you can also check out the Springfield Armory.
Just ten minutes away is Six Flags New England, an amusement park for the whole family to enjoy!
