The manufacturing sector has been an early adopter of emerging technologies – capitalizing on advances in connectivity and machine intelligence – but the automotive, energy, retail and healthcare sectors are all moving in the same direction.
With data analytics at its core, the Fourth Industrial Revolution relies on innovations in fields such as AI, robotics, edge computing, blockchain, cyber-physical systems, virtual simulation, digital twins, and augmented reality.
These innovations will be in focus at ITU Kaleidoscope 2020: Industry-driven digital transformation – ITU’s flagship academic event – to be held virtually from 7 to 11 December 2020.
ITU Kaleidoscope events are peer-reviewed academic conferences that increase dialogue between academics and ICT standardization experts. The aim of the conference is to identify emerging trends in ICT research and associated implications for international standardization.
Kaleidoscope 2020 is inviting original academic papers sharing insight into ongoing projects and research relevant to digital transformation and the future of industry.
The deadline for submissions is 29 June 2020.
The conference welcomes submissions from both technical and social sciences, organizing submissions into five tracks:
Researchers preparing submissions to Kaleidoscope 2020 are encouraged to consult the conference’s Call for Papers.
All papers accepted and presented at the conference will be published in the Kaleidoscope Proceedings and the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Outstanding papers may also be published in the IEEE Communications Standards Magazine.
Special recognition will be afforded to the authors of the three best papers, who will also share in a prize fund of 6,000 Swiss francs. Authors up to 30 years’ old presenting accepted papers at the conference will receive Young Author Recognition Certificates.
ITU Kaleidoscope 2020 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE and the IEEE Communications Society; supported by IEEE Technology and Engineering Management Society; and organized in partnership with Waseda University, the Institute of Image Electronics Engineers of Japan, the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers of Japan, the Chair of Communication and Distributed Systems at RWTH Aachen University, the European Academy for Standardization, the University of the Basque Country and Liverpool John Moores University.
