*** Please accept our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP
The 17th International Conference on Mobility, Sensing and Networking (IEEE
MSN 2021)
December 13-15, 2021 · Exeter, U. K.

*(EXTENDED) Paper Submission Due: August 3, 2021 (Firm)*

MSN 2021 provides a forum for academic researchers and industry
practitioners to present research progresses, exchange new ideas, and
identify future directions in the field of Mobility, Sensing and Networking.
 MSN 2021 is technically sponsored by IEEE.

Scope and Objectives
Mobility, sensing and networking are the key areas of enabling technologies
for the next-generation networks, Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical
Systems. Recent years have witnessed the increasing convergence of
algorithms, protocols, and applications for mobility, sensing and
networking in a range of applications including connected vehicles, smart
cities, industries, and smart health. Building on the past 16 years of
success, the 17th International Conference on Mobility, Sensing and
Networking (MSN 2021) provides a forum for academic researchers and
industry practitioners to exchange new research ideas, present their
progress, and identify future directions in the field of mobility, sensing
and networking.

The conference solicits submissions from all research areas related to
mobility, sensing and networking, as well as their corresponding systems
and applications. Topics of interests are covered by the following tracks:
