The 15th International
Learning and Technology Conference

Internet of Things (IoT):
Embedding Intelligence

25th – 26th February 2018
9th – 10th Jumada Al-Akhirah 1439
Jeddah, KSA

The pervasive nature of smart devices and Web 2.0/3.0 technologies have set the pace for rapid digital transformation of not only how governments are redefining their services and delivery, or how organizations conduct business but also the way citizens live in society. The Internet of Things (IoT) has similarly transformed the educational landscape and paved the way for enriched learning experiences. In addition to optimizing the technology enablers to IoT, society also needs to address the security, social, privacy and psychological aspects of the IoT ecosystem.

The 15th International Learning and Technology (L&T 2018) Conference is a unique opportunity for researchers, entrepreneurs, technology developers and policy makers to address current challenges and advances in the field. Specifically, it will examine the modern practices and potential of IoT and the way it affects the digital transformation, innovation, and social, economic and educational developments both locally and globally.

The conference will feature keynote presentations, thought-provoking paper presentations, workshop sessions and a stimulating panel discussion covering the latest developments in the IoT ecosystem. Join us and explore new collaboration opportunities, cultivate your social and knowledge networks, and compliment your core experience!

The L&T 2018 conference is co-sponsored by the IEEE Western Region Section and the IEEE Computer Society (C16).

All accepted papers will be published on the IEEE Xplorer website and the best papers will be published in the International Journal of Knowledge Society Research.
