Call for Papers

EAI ICECI 2021 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference (with an on-site possibility).

In 2020, EAI successfully launched an online conference format to ensure the safety, comfort and quality of experience for attendees and a successful course of the events, all while retaining fully live interaction, publication and indexing. Due to the unrelenting global pandemic, this will also be the case in 2021.
Although we will miss having everyone meet and connect in person, we feel strongly that knowledge exchange must continue, if not more so. That is why we have equipped our online conferences with live viewing with chat, virtual Q&A, and a multitude of other measures to provide you with a great experience. Learn more about EAI’s online conferences.
If the situation allows it, the event will take place in its original location with an option to present remotely. In any case, all matters related to publication and indexing will remain unchanged.

Scope

The explosion of the big data generated by ubiquitous edge devices motivates the emergence of applying machine learning systems for Edge Computing and Internet of Things (IoT) services. Machine learning techniques, which have attracted attention from both academia and industry in recent years, are delivering a promising solution to the industry for building IoT systems and to make innovation at a rapid pace.

The proceedings of EAI ICECI 2021 is aiming to be a premier international conference in Edge Computing and IoT. This conference is to bring together computer scientists, industrial engineers and researchers to discuss and exchange experimental or theoretical results, novel designs, work-in-progress, experience, case studies, and trend-setting ideas in the area of Edge Computing or IoT including all aspects with emphasis on systems, management and security.

The conference on Edge Computing and IoT: Systems, Management and Security (EAI ICECI) will be held on November 5-7, 2021 in Shenzhen, China, with the vision to bring together technical experts and researchers from academia and industry from all around the world to discuss the emerging technologies of Edge Computing and Internet of Things.
