TENSYMP2020, the first virtual flagship conference of IEEE Region 10 was successfully held from 5th to 7th June 2020. This article presents some facts and descriptions of the conference. During the last phase of paper submission of TENSYMP2020 in the first half of March 2020, the whole world was facing a global COVID19 pandemic. In every aspect of life, there was an unprecedented change that halted all of our regular activities in every corner of the world.

The fate of TENSYMP2020 became uncertain. The conference was scheduled to be held as a face-to-face conference at Pan Pacific Sonargaon Hotel, Dhaka, Bangladesh from 5th to 7th June 2020. But we, a very strongly motivated program committee, did not lose our hope. And behind us, we got tremendous support from our beloved technical communities. In spite of severe obstacles as a result of the Corona crisis, we received 1,030 valid submissions in 12 technical tracks involving 2,308 authors from 19 countries. These included 201 international papers. The magnitude of this massive enthusiastic submission from diversified geolocations is a clear indication of the preference of TENSYMP as a brand, as well as its 2020 organizers, namely IEEE Bangladesh Section and IEEE Region 10.
