Call for Workshop Proposals

EAI Edge-IoT 2021 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference.

In 2020, EAI successfully launched an online conference format to ensure the safetycomfort and quality of experience for attendees and a successful course of the events, all while retaining fully live interactionpublication and indexing. Due to the unrelenting global pandemic, this will also be the case in 2021.

Although we will miss having everyone meet and connect in person, we feel strongly that knowledge exchange must continue, if not more so. That is why we have equipped our online conferences with live viewing with chatvirtual Q&A, and a multitude of other measures to provide you with a great experience. Learn more about EAI’s online conferences.

All matters related to publication and indexing will remain unchanged.

Aiming to provide an interactive and focused atmosphere for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas, EAI Edge-IoT 2021 will be hosting a series of workshops and encourages the research community and other interested parties to submit a proposal for organizing a Workshop.

Workshops are hands on sessions which are focused on current and future trends and they should emphasize on current topics relevant to the Edge-IoT community on the latest research, engineering, standards, and business concerns and could include a mix of regular and invited presentations. Industrial workshops and technology demonstrations are welcome.

Workshop Papers will be published in a dedicated section of the SmartCity360° Convention Proceedings. The materials presented in the position papers should not be published or under submission elsewhere. Each successfully submitted workshop proposal will be reviewed by the Program Committee and external experts to reach a decision on acceptance.
