ITU Kaleidoscope 2021: Connecting the physical and virtual worlds
, online December 6-10, will share research on persistent virtual realities and personalized computer-generated environments bringing to life “digital twins” of people, places and things.
Call for Video Demos: Showcase your innovations globally. Submit an extended summary by October 1, 2021 for your demo to be considered.
From early research prototypes to production-ready systems, Kaleidoscope 2021 hosts demonstrations showcasing emerging concepts in applied research as well as concepts already applied in industry.
The Kaleidoscope Steering Committee will select demos for video presentation at the conference based on their relevance to the conference theme, clarity, originality, innovation, applicability, and potential impact on people’s life.
Submit an article before June 27
ITU Kaleidoscope Events are peer-reviewed academic conferences that identify emerging trends in research and associated implications for international standardization.
ITU Kaleidoscope 2021: Connecting the Physical and Virtual Worlds will examine innovations creating virtual parallels in our societies and economies and stimulate discussion on technical, business and political issues relevant to this fast-approaching future.
The conference hosts research in technical and social sciences, this year organizing submissions into four streams:
- Network infrastructure and architecture enabling ubiquitous communications
- New space applications and services
- Enabling Technologies
- Security, confidentiality and trust, including socio-economic and ethical aspects
Researchers preparing submissions to Kaleidoscope 2021 are encouraged to view the conference call for papers. The deadline for submission is June 27.
All papers accepted and presented at the conference will be published in Kaleidoscope Proceedings and the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Outstanding articles may also be published in the IEEE Communications Standards magazine.
Special recognition will be given to the authors of the three best articles, who will also share a prize of 6,000 Swiss francs. Authors up to 30 years of age submitting papers accepted at the conference will receive Young Author Recognition Certificates.
ITU Kaleidoscope 2021 is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE and the IEEE Communications Society. The conference welcomes Virtual Switzerland and Confirm Smart Manufacturing as the latest partners to join Kaleidoscope 2021, after 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, European Academy for Standardization, University of the Basque Country, John Moores University in Liverpool, University of Limerick and Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.
ITU opportunities for research communities
Along with the ITU Kaleidoscope conferences, the ITU Journal and ITU Academia members are two other key ways for the academic profession to engage in the work of ITU.
ITU’s Journal of Future and Changing Technologies provides comprehensive coverage of all communications and networking paradigms. Free for readers and authors alike, the journal welcomes articles all year round on all subjects.
ITU academic members contribute to ITU expert groups on radiocommunications, standardization and development, contributions that strengthen the work of ITU and enhance its impact on research.
