SMARTCOMP 2021, the 7th edition of the conference, will be held in Irvine, Orange County, California, USA. SMARTCOMP is the premier conference on smart computing. Smart computing, a multidisciplinary domain is based on the synergistic influence of advances in Sensor-based technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber-Physical Systems, Edge computing, Big Data analytics, Machine Learning, Cognitive Computing, and Artificial Intelligence.

Applications of smart computing can be found in different societal domains including, but not limited to, transportation, energy, environmental protection, smart and connected communities, healthcare, banking, entertainment, and social media. Algorithmic and system advancements of cloud computing, mobile/pervasive computing, cyber-physical systems, sensor networking and social computing are taking smart computing to a new dimension and improving our ways of living. Selected papers from SMARTCOMP 2021 will be considered for publication in Elsevier’s Journal of Pervasive and Mobile Computing.

It is planned to have the conference in Irvine, Orange County, California, USA. However, there is a possibility of moving to either a hybrid or fully online mode depending on the pandemic situation. 

SMARTCOMP 2021 solicits submissions that address the fundamental questions of smart computing, namely how to design and build scalable and reliable smart computing systems, and how to use computing technology for resource sustainability to improve the human experience. Topics include, but not limited to the following:

* Future Smart Computing Paradigms
* Models of Smart Environments
* Algorithms for Smart Computing
* AI and Machine Learning in Smart Computing
* Security, Privacy, and Trust issues in Smart Computing
* Fairness and Socio-technical issues of Smart Computing
* Cyber-physical System Platforms for Smart Environments
* Middleware Platforms for Smart Environments
* Mobile and Ubiquitous Platforms for Smart Environments
* Cloud, Edge and Fog Computing Platforms for Smart Systems
* Data Architectures and Analytics for Smart Computing
* Applications of Smart Computing

Paper submissions must be no longer than 8 pages (the page count limit includes the references list) 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.

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.

All submitted papers will be subject to peer reviews by Technical Program Committee members and other experts in the field. All presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Extended versions of selected high quality papers accepted in IEEE SMARTCOMP 2021 will be considered for publication in the Elsevier's Pervasive and Mobile Computing journal.
