Welcome Message

Hybrid (In-Person and Virtual) Conference: We are very happy to welcome you all in Exeter and are confident that the situation is improving regarding the on-going COVID-19 pandemic. The conference will be held on 1-3 November 2023 as the safety and well-being of all conference participants are of the highest priority. Nevertheless, in view of the possible travel restrictions, the conference will be in the form of a hybrid conference with as many authors and participants as possible attending the conference in Exeter in person, and others attending remotely. The technical program will include physical sessions with on-site presentations and virtual (on-line) sessions for remote participants.

The fast development of new computing and networking technologies is unleashing a broad set of innovative applications and a variety of industrial verticals, e.g., industry 4.0, healthcare and transportation. Big data from computing, networking and the application services are valuable assets for improving the Quality-of-Service (QoS) of computing and networking infrastructures and the Quality-of-Experience (QoE) of application services. How to effectively leverage big data in a smart way, incorporating computational intelligence in networks, edge/cloud computing and services, is a long-standing research question. It has received tremendous attention from both academia and industry, but still needs innovations to enable smarter computing, networking, and services. SmartCNS aims to address the important problems and challenges caused by the network and computational complexity, ultra-high QoE demands, and diverse services. The conference provides a leading-edge forum to bring together scientists, researchers and engineers in different disciplines to share their experience and ideas and exchange their novel work regarding the state-of-the-art and in-progress research on all aspects of smart computing, networking and services.

SmartCNS-2023 is planned to be hosted in Exeter, UK. The authors of selected best papers will be invited post conference to extend their contributions for special issues of prestigious journals to be planned in conjunction with the conference.
