If you are interested in being a speaker or nominating a speaker for a Vertical and/or Topical Track, please send an email to Adam Drobot, and Stan Moyer,


Are you interested to take a part in shaping the future of IoT technologies? Are you interested in adding new dimensions to your current IoT projects? Are you interested in making your IoT system real smart?  If you are, IEEE WFIoT 2021 is the right place to be.


The Vertical and Topical Tracks will address the practical aspects of IoT implementation, adoption, deployment, and operation. The V&T Tracks are aimed at a general but knowledgeable audience with an emphasis on the IoT challenges and successes in industry, the public sector, and major demonstrations and trials conducted by the research community. The theme for 2021 is The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on IoT. The topics for the tracks were specifically chosen because they are of high interest to IoT globally as well as the area around New Orleans and the Gulf region. The format for each Track is highly interactive and consists of presentations by leading experts, providers, and end-users from around the world, to address technical, business, and experiential issues. Each session within a track focuses on a specific subject that is also of interest locally and consists of in-depth presentations, moderated panels or roundtables, and an open question period from the audience. The list of high-level topics is shown below. A more detailed description of each track can be found through the WFIoT2021 Program Page.  If you are interested in being a speaker and/or recommending a speaker, please, submit the following information to the Vertical and Topical program chairs, Adam Drobot, and Stan Moyer,, by February 15, 2021
