About ICETST 2024

Recent advancements in Information Technology (IT) have created opportunities of growth for several domains such as health, education, business, economics, supply chain, surveillance, security, transport, and civil infrastructure. There are emerging trends and requirements for adapting and integrating IT related solutions for enhanced efficacy and control. Smart Technologies can be developed using ICT solutions to cater the emerging challenges of enhancing and strengthening infrastructure for these domains. International Conference on Emerging Trends in Smart Technologies (ICETST) is motivated in providing a platform for academicians, researchers, industrialists, and practitioners to publish their research in these emerging domains. The main focus of the conference is on applied research in which IT can be used as an enabler. The conference is seeking submissions in all related areas and domains where modern technologies can be developed by integrating ICT solutions.

Accepted papers that comply with IEEE requirements/regulations will be published in IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Following are the key objectives of ICETST:

  • Introduce a platform for collaboration on emerging topics and key issues in the field of Technology, Management and Urban Challenges.
  • ICETST enables academicians and practitioners to come together and develop solutions.
  • Promotion of research collaborations in crucial IT areas, facilitates interactions for joint proposal writing and formulating funding strategies, and assists in identifying potential sources of funding from public and private sectors.
  • Identifying key areas of participation in Technology Transfer and the need of local technology landscape.
