Call for Research Papers


SMARTCOMP 2024, the 10th edition of the premier conference on smart computing, will be held in Osaka, Japan at the end of June 2024.

Smart computing is a multidisciplinary domain based on the synergistic influence of advances in sensor-based technologies, Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, edge computing, big data analytics, machine learning, cognitive computing, ambient intelligence, and artificial intelligence.

Applications of smart computing can be found in various societal domains, including transportation, energy, environmental protection, smart and connected communities, healthcare, industrial systems, and entertainment. Algorithmic and systems advancements of cloud computing, mobile and pervasive computing, sensor networking, and social computing are taking smart computing to a new level while improving our ways of living.

SMARTCOMP 2024 welcomes novel, cutting-edge and creative research contributions. Authors are encouraged to discuss the importance, timeliness, and significance of their work as well as limitations, future opportunities and open research directions.
