The 2021 IEEE Global Conference on Artificial Intelligence & Internet of Things
(2021 IEEE GCAIoT)
“The IoT with AI, ML, 5G, and Beyond!”
December 12 – 16, 2021
Dubai, UAE

Dear Respected Author(s),

It is our pleasure to invite you to submit your papers/posters/demo proposals to the 2021 IEEE Global Conference on Artificial Intelligence and Internet of Things (2021 IEEE GCAIoT) which will be a hybrid conference that will be held in Dubai, UAE and there will be a parallel virtual version. The conference is sponsored by the IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society (TEMS) and technically co-sponsored by IEEE R8, IEEE 5G Future Networks, and IEEE UAE Section.

The 2021 IEEE GCAIoT aims to provide a forum for researchers from both academic and industry fields to share their latest research contributions and exchange knowledge with the common goal of shaping the future of the interaction among Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Internet of Things (IoT), 5G and Future Technology Trends to develop Sustainable smart healthy cities. Contributed papers are solicited describing original works in these fields and related technologies. All papers need to include a paragraph about the “managerial impact” of their proposed contribution, for example, implications in terms of what it means to manage the new technology, how to do the transition, how to operate and so forth, in the broader context than just the technology. We also encourage contribution that addresses the unprecedented COVID-19 and future similar epidemics, and how to use AI and IoT to fight altogether.

The conference program will include paper presentations, poster sessions, and project demonstrations, along with prominent keynote speakers and industry-focused workshops. There will be three tracks in the conference: technical track, governmental track, and industrial track. The industrial track will include a one-day focused Industry Summit, in addition to a Women in Technology one-day (or half-day) workshop.

The 2021 IEEE GCAIoT is pleased to confirm the prestigious IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management (ABS 3/Q1) and IEEE Engineering Management Review as our supporting journals. Selected best papers from the technical track (typically, high-quality academic papers) will be invited to submit their papers to IEEE Transactions on Engineering Management. Selected best papers from Government and Industry tracks (typically, shorter and more practitioner-focused) will be invited to submit their papers to the IEEE Engineering Management Review.

We encourage potential authors and delegates to consider becoming a member of the IEEE and IEEE TEMS in order to gain several benefits, including discounted registration fees at GCAIoT 2021 Join IEEE TEMS.

We also encourage contributions that address the unprecedented COVID-19 and future similar epidemics, and how to use the new technologies to fight it and cope with its consequences. In addition, authors are encouraged to contribute to “Life after Covid-19” which may be little different than what we have before covid-19 hits.
