IEEE 7th World Forum on Internet of Things
14 June-31 July 2021 // New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

Call for Submissions

We are seeking technical paper submissions and proposals for tutorials and industry forums for the 7th IEEE World Forum on the Internet of Things which is now a hybrid conference being held both in New Orleans, Louisiana USA, and virtually June 20th – 24th, 2021. Authors can choose to present online or in person. The Forum is the premier event of the Multi-Society IEEE IoT  Initiative and is held jointly with the IoT Community. The Theme for WFIoT2021 is “The Impact of Artificial Intelligence on IoT”.
You will find a comprehensive and exciting program, that brings the latest developments from industry and the business world, the most important people from across the breadth of the IoT ecosystem, news of significant innovations and advances from the research and academic community, and shared experiences from practitioners and end-users about the successes and challenges of IoT deployments. The World Forum is all about the nurture and promotion of IoT for the benefit of society and humanity.
Prospective authors are invited to submit high-quality, original technical papers for presentation (either virtually or in-person) at the conference and publication in the WFIoT2021 2021 Proceedings. Papers should address, but are not limited to, the high-level topics below:

  • Applications, Processes, and Services
  • Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, and Analytics
  • Basic and Enabling Technologies
  • Communication, Connectivity, and Networking
  • Computing – from Edge to Cloud
  • Cybersecurity, Security, and Privacy
  • Infrastructure, Devices, and Components
  • Information Processing from Multimedia and Heterogeneous Sources
  • Results from Experiments, Demonstrations, and Trials, and Deployment Experiences
  • Social and Societal Impacts
  • Systems Engineering, Integration Methods,  and Operation Technologies
  • Theoretical foundations, design methods, and architectural considerations
Paper Submissions Deadline

The Forum is planned as a series of panels, each devoted to a specific aspect of IoT, conducted as an open and collegiate exchange of information with the objectives to:

  • Understand the limitations of current IoT knowledge to guide future research topics
  • Share best practice for commercial IoT development, deployment, and maintenance so early mistakes are not repeated many times over
  • Highlight the risks that the IoT can expose so that these can be mitigated and avoided
  • Create networks of excellence across the academic, maker, and commercial communities to jointly push forward the boundaries of IoT science
  • Reduce the knowledge transfer barriers between the academic, maker, and industrial communities
Industry Forum Proposal Submissions Deadline
15 February 2021

IEEE is closely monitoring developments related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of our members and conference participants is our first priority. For conference updates, please visit WF-IoT 2021 website regularly.
