It is with great pleasure to welcome you to The 5th edition of Conference on Cloud and Internet of Things 2021 (CIoT’21) will be held from November 8 to November 10, 2021 in Marrakech, Morocco.

CIoT provides a high-quality international academic and industrial exchange forum for experts and scholars in the field of intelligent systems, cloud computing and Internet of Things.

The conference will be designed and prepared as a in person event. However, in the case of perduring traveling restrictions (official or de facto) during the conference dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be ready to convert the conference to a fully on-line event.
We hope the conditions will allow for in-person participation, so we can enjoy face-to-face discussions and coffee breaks again. It would also give the opportunity to participants to visit the beautiful city of Marrakech.

CIoT’21 is a conference focusing on the challenges of managing Internet of Things applications while considering the whole end-to-end architecture over the sixth generation of mobile networks (6G) and next-generation data center networking from to cloud to the edge and IoT devices. The next generation of telecommunication networks is expected to support a growing number of smart terminals, such as cell phones, sensors and other connected objects, to provide real-time applications and to provide intelligence and trust embedded in network infrastructure. To meet these requirements, the 6G envisions the use of artificial intelligence, cloud and edge computing. The 6G network will absorb the billions of flows generated by things while considering the requested QoS and the cohabitation of M2M, M2H and H2M flows. Then, the flows will be processed in data centers and applications will exploit the extracted knowledge.

The main objective of CIoT’21 is to address challenges of clouds and IoT systems from the sensors/machines to the end-users attached to the Cloud while considering the 6G network connecting both IoT and Cloud domains.

Authors are invited to submit original contributions that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers should be prepared using the IEEE 2-column conference style and are limited to 8 pages (full papers). They have to be submitted electronically in PDF format. Papers exceeding page limits, multiple submissions, and self-plagiarized papers will be rejected without further review. All other papers will sustain a thorough single-blind review process.

CIoT’21 will also hold an industrial track. The industrial track gathers scholars and industrial participants to highlight practical and real-world studies and applications of cloud and IoT technologies. This track aims to foster cooperation between participants engaged in scientific research and practitioners working to improve the development of new cloud and IoT applications. Each submission should describe the problem addressed, the approach used, the current state of the project, an evaluation of the benefits or lessons learned, and future developments. Industrial track submissions are extended abstracts of 2 pages.

All submissions must be written in English and must use standard IEEE two-column conference template, available for download from the IEEE website:

Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process and all submissions must be done electronically through EDAS using the following link:

The technical papers presented at the conference will be invited to submit an extended version in the Special Issue “Electronics for Agriculture”, MDPI Journal

Best papers will be considered for fast-track publication in a special issue of Annals of Telecommunications (Springer, ISI-indexed)
