WF-IoT 2021

IEEE 7th World Forum on the Internet of Things


Revised IEEE 7th World Forum on the Internet of Things WF-IoT2021 Format and Key dates for the Virtual and Face-Face Conference Events:

  • IEEE WF-IoT2021 will be conducted as a Virtual and a Face-Face Conference. In view of the guidance about the COVID Pandemic and continued restrictions on international travel, we have elected to hold the conference and all of its components in their entirety. In doing so we will provide all participants with a safe and convenient way to be involved. At the same time, we have programmed the World Forum to be highly interactive and timed presentations to encourage broad participation from around the Globe.
  • The Face-Face portion of the event will be held in New Orleans as originally planned and viewable by all registrants on-line. It will be conducted with proper precautions taken by the Conference Hotel, in a format that provides for social distancing and wearing of masks by all local attendees in accordance with best practices. The New Orleans program is built around topics of specific interest to New Orleans but also important for IoT. These include Workshops/Special Sessions on IoT for dealing with COVID-19, Flood Control and Mitigation, and the Hospitality Industry, a portion of the Vertical Track on Smart Cities, and a portion of the Topical Track on Communications and Networking.
  • The Virtual portion of the event will focus on daily sessions from 10:30am-12:30pm US Eastern Time, allowing for better access from remote locations. The Virtual Program Sessions will consist of prerecorded material for all Technical Peer-Reviewed Papers but live speakers on-line for all other aspects of the conference.
  • All Exhibit participation will be conducted and accommodated virtually and available on-line for the duration of the conference. All Sponsorship signage will be included in the Face-Face as well as Virtual Session materials.

The IEEE 7th World Forum on Internet of Things (WF-IoT 2021) brings the latest from the research and academic community. It includes a broad program of papers and presentations on the latest technology developments and innovations in the many fields and disciplines that drive the utility and vitality of IoT solutions and applications. After extensive peer review, the best of the proposals will be selected for the conference program, which includes technical papers, tutorials workshops and industry sessions designed specifically to advance technologies, end to end solutions, systems and infrastructure, processes, and operating methods, that are contributing to how IoT can reshape the world and overcome the challenges we face, so that all individuals can participate in and enjoy life to the fullest.

The program also contains strong involvement from the public sector and industry aimed at deepening the understanding, the necessary dialog, and actions needed to accelerate the adoption and deployment of IoT.  We have selected well-known Chairs, who can be contacted directly, to create sessions on issues of regional and global importance and to seek prominent and knowledgeable speakers and panelists for the program. For the subjects of interest at the conference we have picked six Vertical and six Topical Areas:

IoT Vertical Sessions

  • Agriculture
  • Energy and Power
  • Environment and Ecology
  • Healthcare Medicine
  • Industry and Manufacturing
  • Smart Cities

IoT Topical Area Sessions

  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
  • Communications and Networks
  • Computing
  • Data and Data Engineering

Hundreds of participants will gather to present research results, share visions and ideas, obtain updates on latest technologies and expand professional networking. These activities are realized through IoT Initiative’s multiple diversified and exciting programs.

This event includes many keynote speeches delivered by distinguished speakers from industry, academia and the public sector; panels and forums; technical sessions featuring peer-reviewed technical papers; workshops focusing on the latest trends in various technologies; tutorials delivered by experts in respective disciplines; sessions for practitioners, policymakers, and executives.
