The abstract and full paper deadlines for International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design (ISLPED) were March 16th and 23rd, 2020. On March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced COVID-19 a pandemic and in the following weeks many countries and states immediately issued stay-at-home order. This situation adversely affected the submission to the conference. The conference received 123 legitimate full paper submissions, which is 25% lower than last year. The majority of the submissions were from America (57%), Asia (26%), and Europe (16%). The main contact authors come from 21 different countries. Technical Program Committee consisted of 102 experts from all over the world who reviewed the submissions. The review meeting took place online on May 16, 2020. Each track had its Zoom meeting hosted by the track chair/co-chair. The committee accepted 30 regular papers (~23% acceptance rate) and 12 poster papers (~34% acceptance rate). The acceptance rate is the same as the last year.
