We are aware that a lot of intending participants will need this latitude to reboot and re-energize to get their papers ready. The iSTEAMS  Conference traditionally seeks to facilitate research innovations, mentoring, discoveries, socioeconomic and human capital development through the clustering, dynamism and interaction of indigenous human and material resources both locally and internationally  with the attendant aim of addressing the myriads of solvable global challenges using multifaceted technology-based solutions. We will engage the instruments of our interactions,  presentations, advocacy and collaborations to nurture and promote innovations and knowledge discoveries. We welcome prospective participants to consider submitting research articles, position papers, reports, and all forms of articulations in all fields of human endeavours and explore the opportunities offered by the clustering of brilliant minds at the iSTEAMS conference to obtain valid inputs and will further fuel research agendas and innovations in our multifaceted world.  Graduate students are particularly welcomed to also explore the opportunities offered by the Graduate/Doctoral Consortium collocated with the iSTEAMS  Conference 2020 to expose their current and advanced research to a world class league of scholars that can assist them with refining and fine-tuning research directions and validate pragmatic research proposals. I believe your participation will add zest to what is potentially a great and highly impactful event.
