    Call For Papers - CFP


    The pace of digital transformation continues to erode the barriers between the physical and virtual worlds. Things,

    places and people are being mirrored in a parallel virtual world. At the same time, our communications experiences

    are moving beyond communications through screens to become immersive experiences, creating a continuum of

    human-to-human, human-to-things and things-to-things interactions.

    The COVID-19 pandemic, with its requirements of social distancing, has accelerated this shift towards immersive

    experiences to optimize interactions in business and education as well as fields such as healthcare, engineering,

    product development, automotive, logistics, retail and entertainment.

    The ICT industry has two key roles to play in supporting very stringent communications requirements and creating a

    “networked” infrastructure for supporting ubiquitous services that can be on devices, at the edge of the network, in the

    core or in large datacentres. Emerging ICTs are blurring the borders between computing, storing and communications

    capabilities, creating gigantic distributed programmable environments. How can technical standards policies and

    regulations pave the way to a hyperconnected future? Would such a future be desirable in the first place? How can we

    ensure that this shift is human centred? Is the society ready for this change?

    ##Objective ##

    Kaleidoscope 2021 calls for original academic papers sharing insight into ongoing projects and research relevant to

    the development of persistent virtual realities and customized computer-generated environments, as well as new

    possibilities and associated challenges appearing on the horizon. Particularly, this conference encourages

    submissions on technical standards for networks and services required to enable this transformation, including

    considerations on social and ethical implications.


    Kaleidoscope 2021 targets specialists in the fields of ICT and socio-economic development, including researchers,

    academics, students, engineers, policymakers, regulators and innovators.

    ##Date and venue##

    Due to COVID-19, Kaleidoscope 2021 will be held exceptionally online from 6-10 December 2021.
