Call for Papers

SMARTCOMP 2022, the 8th edition of the premier conference on smart computing, will be held in Helsinki, Finland. Smart computing is a multidisciplinary domain based on the synergistic influence of advances in sensor-based technologies, Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, edge computing, big data analytics, machine learning, cognitive computing, and artificial intelligence.

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, industrial systems, 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.

We want SMARTCOMP 2022 to be a welcoming venue for novel, cutting-edge, and creative research. We realize that such innovative concepts may be harder to be fully developed and evaluated in all aspects. The review process will take this into account. Authors are encouraged to discuss importance, timeliness, significance of their work, as well as limitations, potential future extensions and directions.

Selected papers from SMARTCOMP 2022 will be considered for publication in Elsevier's Journal of Pervasive and Mobile Computing.


SMARTCOMP 2022 solicits submissions that address the fundamental questions of smart computing, namely how to design and build scalable and reliable smart computing systems, and how to use computing technology for resource sustainability to improve the human experience. Topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Important Dates

The conference is currently planned as an in-person event in Helsinki, Finland. Depending on the pandemic situation, a hybrid or fully online mode will be considered.

Submission Guidelines

Paper submissions must be no longer than 8 pages (the page count limit includes the references list) and formatted according to the two-column IEEE proceedings template. IEEE provides corresponding formatting templates at IEEE proceedings template. Make sure to use the conference mode of the template, i.e., LaTeX users must use the conference option of the IEEEtran document class.

Papers must be submitted electronically as a single PDF file on US Letter size paper (not A4), with all fonts embedded (the PDF-A standard complies with that), through EDAS All submitted papers will be subject to peer reviews by Technical Program Committee members and other experts in the field. All presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Journal Fast Track

Extended versions of selected high-quality papers accepted in SMARTCOMP 2022 will be considered for publication in Elsevier's Pervasive and Mobile Computing journal (IF: 3.453).
