2021 IEEE Smart World Congress

Stitching Smart Everything into Smart Life

The smart world is set to enhance everyday things with abilities of sensation, communication, computation and intelligence so that many tasks and processes could be simplified, efficient, and enjoyable. It consists of numerous "smart things" that can be endowed with different levels/forms of intelligence and be connected together for a network level of intelligence. At the same time, the fairness and ethics in utilizing such an intelligence is of extreme importance. Research on ubiquitous and trustworthy smart world is an emerging research field covering many interdisciplinary areas that benefits humanity and will have significant societal impacts.
The IEEE Smart World Congress originated from the 2005 Workshop on Ubiquitous Smart Worlds (USW, Taipei) and the 2005 Symposium on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Smart World (UISW, Nagasaki). SmartWorld 2021 in Atlanta is the continuation after the successful SmartWorld 2020 in Melbourne, SmartWorld 2019 in Leicester, SmartWorld 2018 in Guangzhou, SmartWorld 2017 in San Francisco, SmartWorld 2016 in Toulouse, and SmartWorld 2015 in Beijing. IEEE SmartWorld 2021 aims to provide a high-profile, leading-edge platform for researchers and engineers to exchange and explore state-of-art advances and innovations in graceful integrations of Cyber, Physical and Social Worlds with Ubiquitous Intelligence.
