IARIA Congress 2022: 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).

After more than 15 years of service to the scientific community, IARIA Board inaugurates the IARIA Annual Congress, an event keeping pace with the achievements and challenges our society is facing in science, technologies, services, and applications.

The annual event is a multidomain assembly of scientists, specialists, and decision makers from all economical, educational, and governmental entities, on Social Systems, Software, Data Science Analytics, Communications, Technology, and Networked Services.

Apart classical topics the congress targets frontier achievements on Knowledge Science, Data Science, Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning (AI/ML)-based systems, Self-managing systems, Human-centric technologies, Advanced robotics, Virtual Worlds, Mobility, Sensing, Energy, Electric Vehicles, Green Energy, etc.

The Congress has a special scientific format where outstanding former IARIA scientists will deliver dedicated speeches (Keynote speeches, Tutorial Lectures) along with peer-reviewed contributions on the themes mentioned in the Call.

For the peer/reviewed submissions the event is looking for outstanding academic, research, and industrial contributions covering a dedicated topic or interrelated topics.

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.

Vision papers on various societal problems are welcome, including accessibility, affordability, and diversity aspects for education, service, and life assistance.

The topics suggested by the IARIA Annual Congress can be discussed in terms 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 Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas.

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.
