The 7th IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (SMARTCOMP 2021),
August 23-27, 2021 in Irvine, Orange County, California, USA
The 7th IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (SMARTCOMP 2021)
draws upon many application disciplines such as transportation, energy,
environmental protection, resource management, healthcare, security,
banking, entertainment, and social media.

Work In Progress (WIP) & DEMO papers
In addition to full-length technical papers, SMARTCOMP welcomes Work in
Progress (WIP) papers and technical demonstrations (Demos) showing
innovative and original research in the areas of smart computing.
Submissions from both industry and academia are strongly encouraged.
WIP papers are expected to report on early or ongoing research activities,
while Demo papers are expected to present innovative applications and tools.
The WIP and Demo sessions will provide a forum to discuss novel ideas and
emerging results, presenting innovative applications and tools, and bring
about novel research questions, approaches, and directions.

Areas of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Smart Computing Technologies and Applications
* Smart Cyber-Physical Systems and Energy/ Water/ Agriculture/
Transportation/ Healthcare/ Banking Infrastructure
* Future Smart Computing Paradigms
* Smart Human Environments, Health, Entertainment, and Social Activities
* Smart Computing for Environmental change (e.g., Energy Management and
Analytics, Smart Transportation)
* Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Smart Computing
* Middleware Platforms for Smart Environments
* Mobile and Ubiquitous Platforms for Smart Environments
* Cloud, Edge and Fog Computing Platforms for Smart Systems
* Security, Privacy, and Economics in Smart Environments

WIP and Demo papers should be no more than 3 pages in length, including
figures, tables, and references and formatted according to the two-column
IEEE proceedings template. IEEE provides corresponding formatting templates
at *IEEE conference template*. Make sure to use the conference mode of the
template, i.e., LaTeX users must use the conference option of the IEEEtran
document class.
WIP papers are expected to present early or ongoing research activities.
Novel approaches and preliminary results are especially appreciated.
Demo papers should explicitly state what will be demonstrated to the
audience, and how the attendees will be able to interact, enjoy, and

Papers must be submitted electronically as a single PDF file on US Letter
size paper (not A4), with all fonts embedded (the PDF-A standard complies
with that), through EDAS – WiP and Demo Track.
Submitted WIP and Demo papers will be subject to peer reviews by SMARTCOMP
Technical Program Committee members and other experts in the field.
All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, and
submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. They will be presented as
posters. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and
attend the conference to present the work.
Authors are requested to submit original, unpublished manuscripts in
standard IEEE proceedings format in PDF. Paper submissions should be
formatted according to the IEEE conference template.

Due to the short interval between the notification of acceptance and the
camera-ready deadline, we strongly encourage authors to follow the
camera-ready formatting guidelines as close as possible even for the
initial abstract submission.
Submissions must be made via EDAS.
When submitting, please select the “SMARTCOMP 2021: WIP and Demo” track.

Paper Submission: 31 May 2021
Acceptance Notification: 20 June 2021
Camera-ready: 1 July 2021

The IEEE SMARTCOMP 2021 Organizing Committee invites proposals for
tutorials. We will consider tutorials on any topic if the proposal makes a
strong argument that such a tutorial serves an important function for the
SMARTCOMP community. Tutorials should be of interest to a substantial part
of the SMARTCOMP audience and represent a sufficiently mature area of
research or practice. Topics include pervasive/ubiquitous computing, edge
cloud computing, software defined networking,  sensor networks, decision
making under uncertainty, IoT, big data analytics, security and privacy,
social computing, cognitive computing, cyber-physical systems and their
application and validation within smart computing environments (smart
buildings, smart cities, smart grids, precision agriculture and other
innovations contributing to smart living).

- Title of the tutorial
- Duration (half or full day)
- Contact information of the presenter(s), including name, email, and
- Short biography of the organizer(s)
- Description of the potential target audience for the tutorial
- List of speakers
- Past history of the tutorial event
- Virtual-only tutorial plan

Proposals will be evaluated based on the general interests to the SmartComp
participants, quality of the proposal and expertise of the presenters. If
accepted, the tutorial organizers are required to provide a website that
will contain links of the tutorial materials to the chairs one month prior
to the conference, with preliminary content that will be used in calls for
participation. It will not be possible to host tutorials that require
laboratory or PC access for the audience (no mandatory “hands-on”
tutorials). The conference organizers reserve the right to cancel a
tutorial if too few attendees are registered.

Proposal Submission Registration Deadline: 10 June 2021
Proposal Acceptance Notification: 30 June 2021
Camera-ready: 1 July 2021
