Call for Papers

EAI Urb-IoT  2021 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference.

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.

6th EAI International Conference on IoT in Urban Space: Application of Artificial Intelligence Technology in the IoT


The Urb-IoT conference aims to explore dynamics within the scope of the Internet of Things (IoT) in the urban context and the application of artificial intelligence in the IoT. With the increasing application of artificial intelligence technology, it has been widely used in a large number of fields such as buildings and infrastructure, transportation, utility, industry, public safety, healthcare, education, and so on. The Internet of Things technology has now been integrated into all aspects of social and economic life, and a large amount of Internet of Things data has been generated by the Internet of Things system, which provides greater value for the application of artificial intelligence technology in the IoT industry.

The increasing deployments of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies are opening up new avenues of research opportunities towards future. By introducing artificial intelligence, we can analyze IoT data, business data and user data, and realize a highly autonomous system based on artificial intelligence, harshness, and algorithms. Therefore, how to introduce more artificial intelligence technology into the application system of the Internet of Things industry is among the interests to this conference. We welcome theoretical and experimental papers. We hope that the conference papers can provide valuable references for the broad audience in academia and industry. Encourage original, unpublished articles and survey/tutorial type articles.

Additional publication opportunities:

Paper submission

Papers should be submitted through EAI ‘Confy+‘ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section).

All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAI Community Review which allows EAI members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection. You can learn more about Community Review here.
