Dear Colleagues,

ACM MobiSys 2021: IoT Day (Friday, June 25th)

The growing pervasiveness and continuous improvement of communication technologies is finally enabling the long-standing vision of an actual Internet of Things (IoT), where a broad spectrum of connected, AI-powered services, covering all aspects of future lives including smart individuals and assistants, homes, and even city-scale infrastructures. In fact, the IoT world is still in its infancy, and much of its potential is yet to be discovered, understood, and leveraged. These are thus exciting and unique times for devising and proposing novel ideas that will shape the evolution of the AI-powered IoT ecosystem in the coming years.

The IoT Day @ MobiSys 2021 is an informal venue that will gather a heterogeneous, multidisciplinary audience with academic and industrial backgrounds, including top industry researchers, junior and senior faculty, and talented MSc and PhD students from around the globe.
