ICUMT 2021

Aims and Scope
The ICUMT 2021 paper submission system EDAS is now open!

The aim of ICUMT is to bring together international players in telecommunications, robotics and control systems. The congress consists of two open call tracks, technical workshops, and tutorials. Accepted papers for the ICUMT 2021 and co-located workshops will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore Digital Library after they are presented at the virtual congres.

The Call for Papers in PDF format is available here: https://www.icumt.info/2021/CfP.pdf. Prospective authors are invited to submit papers including technical novelties and tutorial overviews in the areas including but not limited to:
