Welcome to SmartNets 2024!

Today’s internet is almost wholly dependent on data originated by limited accuracy, time, and attention humans. If computers can access to accurate information about things, they would be able to count, track, and predict everything. If everything is connected to internet, the gap between our physical world and cyberspace will be reduced.


Research activities are being conducted in this framework to solve issues related to embedded equipment design, resource-constrained media communications, security, data analysis, services, etc. Thus, novel solutions are needed and research is still underway.


The main goal of SmartNets 2024 conference is then to gather experts and researchers working on the topic to present and debate next challenges and new solutions that will make possible the development of a framework connecting everything.
It aims to bring together Academia (researchers and academics from top Universities and research institutes) and industry (techology companies, vendors and telecommunications providers) to:
– Share the latest research findings
– Address challenges in the digital transformation for the industry (i.e. cyber security)
– Present the future of latest wireless communications technologies (including 5G and IoT) and their potential opportunities in the utilities sector.
– Exchange experiences to implementing secure and reliable communications services.
– to cover theoretical and practical aspects related to the Future of the Internet, the Internet of Things, Smart Cities and Smart Factories.


This year, the multi-thematic program focuses on the major future scientific issues for the following scientific topics, divided into the following main tracks:
– Industry 4.0: The connected Factory
– Smart Cities and Internet of Everything
– Smart Healthcare Systems
– Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning
– Edge, Fog and Cloud Computing
– Next Generation Networks & Cyber Physical Systems
– Security and Privacy
– Cyber Security for Critical Infrastructure and Industrial Applications
– 5G/6G for Industrial Applications
– Communication technologies for Smart grids and Energy management
– Integrated Satellite and Terrestrial Wireless Networks
– Wireless Communications and Networking


A separated Track called “PhD Students’ Forum” provides an opportunity for research students to showcase their original yet incomplete ‘work-in-progress’.

Also an “Industrial Forum” is foreseen to give particular visibility and emphasis of applied research and on industrial developments. For this track to prepare full paper is not mandatory but the same slot for presentation at the conference will be guaranteed. The submission procedure through EDAS is the same of the scientific track but just an abstract could be accepted.

SmartNets 2024 is technically sponsored by IEEE and IEEE ComSoc. It will be held in hybrid mode (virtual or in-person presentation) from May 28th to May 30th 2024, in the beautiful and vibrant City of Harrisonburg/Washington DC – USA.


The target audience is the decision makers and influencers in the Industry and Academia that ranges from Senior researchers to Ph.D. and Master students. Researchers and engineers from companies are welcome, and may greatly benefit from the broad vision provided by this event.

All accepted papers will be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore, DBLP and Thomson Reuters.

Each additional paper (2nd and onward) will be charged 50% of the full registration fee for the same author registrant (Registration fees will be displayed soon).
