CORETA 2021 - Advances on Core Technologies and Applications

November 14, 2021 - November 18, 2021

CORETA 2021: Call for Papers
Onsite and Online Options: In order to accommodate a large number of situations, we are offering the option for either physical presence or virtual participation (pdf slides or pre-recorded videos).

A plethora of intertwined technologies and applications raised during the last years because of maturity of core approaches related to Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), Deep Learning (DL), and Cognitive Computing (CC) domains. In parallel, new technologies like 5G, tactile Internet, spatial and terrestrial communications augmented the speed and computing possibilities of networking systems.

Citizen-centric services as well as innovations in transportation, healthcare, industry, and economy, in general become provocative challenges due to complexity, diversity and the increasing needs of our society. In the virtual eco-systems, where robots are part of society as well, robots-driven industry, robots-citizen care, behavior analytics, affective computing, and empathy set the search for practical applications of deep-learning and knowledge discovery.

While progress is visible, sensitive aspects related to privacy, digital forgery, assisted-living, and semantic processing of the enormous information collected for IoT and wearable devices are still partially solved. Apart intrinsic citizen-focused issues, new self-driven systems and parts (drones, vehicular systems), sustainable and green energy, protection of critical systems, and smart cities challenges ask for innovative correlation and real-time solutions based on core-technologies and applications mentioned above.

CORETA 2021 initiates a series of international events covering challenges to make use and correlate results in different scientific and technological achievements. Potential solutions for reliability, resilience, prediction, sustainability, etc. are still fledgling hopes.

We solicit both academic, research, and industrial contributions. We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

Industrial presentations are not subject to the format and content constraints of regular submissions. We expect short and long presentations that express industrial position and status.

Tutorials on specific related topics and panels on challenging areas are encouraged.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

All topics and submission formats are open to both research and industry contributions.
