SMARTCOMP 2023 is the 9th edition of the premier conference on smart computing. 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, banking, industrial systems, entertainment, and social media. 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 2023 welcomes novel, cutting-edge, and creative research. Authors are encouraged to discuss the importance, timeliness, significance of their work, as well as limitations, potential future extensions, and open research directions.


SMARTCOMP 2023 solicits submissions that address the fundamental questions of smart computing, namely how to design and build scalable and reliable smart computing systems, and how to use computing technology for resource sustainability to improve the human experience. Topics of interest include—but are not limited to—the following:

  • Emerging Smart Computing Paradigms
  • Evaluation Studies and Datasets of Smart Environments
  • Algorithms for Smart Computing
  • AI and Machine Learning in Smart Computing
  • Security, Privacy, and Trust in Smart Computing

Paper Submission Guidelines

Paper submissions must be no longer than 8 pages (the page count limit includes the references list) and formatted according to the two-column IEEE proceedings template. IEEE provides corresponding formatting templates at IEEE proceedings template. Authors should use the conference mode of the template, i.e., LaTeX users must use the conference option of the IEEEtran document class.

Papers must be submitted electronically as a single PDF file on US Letter size paper (not A4), with all fonts embedded (PDF-A standard complies with this), through EDAS. All submitted papers that conform to these guidelines will be subject to peer reviews by Technical Program Committee members and other experts in the field. All presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Journal Fast Track

Extended versions of selected high-quality papers accepted by IEEE SMARTCOMP 2023 will be considered for publication in Elsevier’s Pervasive and Mobile Computing journal (IF: 3.453).

Program Chairs

  • Aron Laszka, Pennsylvania State University, USA
  • Stephan Sigg, Aalto University, Finland
