Call for Papers

With the rapid development of advanced artificial intelligence tools and smart mobile devices, the emerging innovative applications and services across a variety of industrial verticals, e.g., industry 4.0, healthcare, autonomous driving, and smart city demand significant revolution of smart computing, networking and communication technologies. SmartCNS-2019 aims to address the important problems and challenges faced by smart computing, networking and services. The conference provides a leading-edge forum to bring together scientists, researchers and engineers in related disciplines to share their experience and ideas and exchange their novel work regarding the state-of-the-art and in-progress research on all aspects of smart computing, networking and services. SmartCNS-2019 will be held in Shenyang, China, 21-23 October 2019, following the successful organization of its previous related series including SmartNEM-2018 (Exeter, UK, June 2018) WNM-2017 (Exeter, UK, June 2017), WNM-2016 (Sydney, Australia, December 2016), WNM-2015 (Liverpool, UK, October 2015), WNM-2014 (Dalian, China, August 2014), WNM-2013 (Melbourne, Australia, July 2013), WNM-2012 (Liverpool, UK, June 2012), WNM-2011 (Changsha, China, November 2011), and HMWN-2010 (Bradford, UK, June 2010). Topics of particular interests include the following tracks, but are not limited to: 1) smart computing, 2) smart networking, and 3) smart services.

SmartCNS-2019 will provide a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present state-of-art advances and innovations in theoretical foundations, systems, infrastructure, tools, testbeds, and applications for the SmartCNS, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future.

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers to SmartCNS-2019. All accepted papers are expected to be included in IEEE Xplore and will be indexed by Engineering Index (EI). The authors of selected best papers will be invited post conference to extend their contributions for special issues of prestigious journals to be planned in conjunction with the conference.
