5th IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (SMARTCOMP 2019)

12-14 June 2019 | Residence Inn Arlington Pentagon City, Arlington, VA |

SMARTCOMP is the premier conference on smart computing. Smart computing is based on the synergistic combination of advances in Sensor-based technologies, the Internet of Things (IoT), Cyber-Physical Systems, Edge computing, Big Data analytics, Machine Learning, Cognitive Computing, and Artificial Intelligence.

Smart computing is a multidisciplinary domain. Applications of smart computing can be found in different societal domains including, but not limited to, transportation, energy, environmental protection, smart and connected communities, healthcare, banking, entertainment, and social media. Algorithmic and system advancements of cloud computing, mobile/pervasive computing, cyber-physical systems, sensor networking and social computing are taking smart computing to a new dimension and improving our ways of living.

The IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (SMARTCOMP) celebrates this year its 5th edition in Washington D.C., USA, on June 12-14. Over the years, SMARTCOMP has become one of the premier conferences in the field of smart computing.
