Call For Papers


At the heart of future cities, one must find a reflection of the diverse qualities, challenges and aspirations of its citizens. The continuous improvement of quality of life can come through innovative projects and related efforts that support both human interests and digital transformation. What form might this support take?
Addressing these complexities is not easy, but it is essential and will be an ongoing effort of research, industry and government stakeholders in close collaboration with its citizens. A key challenge is to find ways how to combine the different players within complex project ecosystems. We must find ways to share our thoughts, questions and proposals in order to create a sustainable future that serves us all.
One way is to engage the global community. At IEEE E-TEMS 2021– organised by the European Partnership for Project and Innovation Management – participants will share their understanding of quality of life within cities, showcase their digital transformation projects and explore related themes.
The programme will be a balance between topics emergent from submissions and those we specifically seek. For those interested in regional perspectives, it is important to note that we are actively seeking contributions from organizations in and around Dortmund, Bilbao, Trondheim, Kaunas, Leuven, Kyiv and other Smart Cities.
We invite proposals for research papers, commentary papers, project case descriptions, visual displays/exhibitions and other creative, critical insights to these issues.
We also encourage the presentation of doctoral workshop proposals in the early stage of your PhD research.

Conference Format:
IEEE E-TEMS 2021 will be held as an online conference.
In case of the inconvenient time difference, you may be offered to present your paper in the form of a recorded video.

Paper Submission: January 17th, 2021 and Notification: February 8th, 2021.
Camera Ready Paper: February 21st, 2021
Doctoral Workshop Proposal: January 31st, 2021 and Notification: February 22nd, 2021.
