Due to the significant statutory lockdowns/travel restrictions in-place caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, and since it is still unclear when the situation will return back to normal, the organizing committee will decide whether to hold the ICOIN 2021 virtual (online) conferences or not until September 30, 2020. If ICOIN 2021 is held as virtual conferences, details of the event will be announced on its website, and registration fees will be discounted.

The 35th International Conference on Information Networking (ICOIN) will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, which is organized by Korea Institute of Information Scientists and Engineers (KIISE) and technically co-sponsored by IEEE and IEICE. It has been 35 years since ICOIN originally started under the name of Joint Workshop on Computer Communication in 1986. In past fifty years, computer communication and networking technologies have changed every aspect of our lives and societies. While computer networks have contributed largely to the current
IT advancement, it will play a key role in new IT paradigms such as IoT and cloud computing and will be applied to various areas of the upcoming society including industry, business, politics, culture, medicine and so on. ICOIN is the most comprehensive conference focused on the various aspects of advances in computer communication and networking technologies. The main purpose of ICOIN 2021 is to improve our research by achieving the highest capability and encourage open discussions on computer communication and networking technologies. Authors are invited to submit original
unpublished manuscripts that demonstrate recent advances in computer communications, wireless/mobile networks, and converged networks in the theoretical and practical aspects.
Potential topics in this conference include, but are not limited to:
* 5G/6G cellular systems and heterogeneous networks
* Ad-hoc and sensor networks
* Artificial intelligence (AI) and autonomous networking
