*IEEE SmartComp 2021 - Call for Workshop Proposals*
Continuing the well-established tradition of this series of symposia, 
SMARTCOMP 2021 will provide an international technical forum for experts 
from industry and academia to exchange ideas and present results of 
on-going research in most state-of-the-art areas of computers and 
communications. This year, special focus will be on the challenging 
issues related to all the opportunities of computing, sensing and 
communication in the era of the integration of the Internet of Things, 
Sensing, and Mobility, also considering their application to Smart 
Cities, Smart Buildings, Telemonitoring, and E-health.
The Workshops Committee of SMARTCOMP 2021 invites proposals for half or 
full day workshops affiliated with the conference, held on June 2021 on 
topics of interest to SMARTCOMP 2021 attendees. The purpose of these 
workshops is to create new opportunities for presenting novel ideas in a 
less formal and possibly more sharply focused way than at the conference 
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, Internet of Things, 
Software-Defined Networking, Big Data, Cloud/Fog/Edge Computing, 
Mobility Management, E-health, Blockchain, and Cyber Security. Papers 
presented in the SMARTCOMP 2021workshops will be included in the 
conference proceedings and in IEEE Xplore®.
