CALL FOR PAPERS The IEEE IoT Vertical and Topical Summit on Tourism (IoT-VTST’22)

The IEEE IoT Vertical and Topical Summit on Tourism (IoT-VTST’22) will bring together global professionals from industry, public sector, and research community and seeks submissions and proposals for original technical papers and presentations that address the Internet of Things (IoT). The theme for IoT-VTST’22 is “Cultural Heritage and the Internet of Things”, encouraging the submissions of content aimed at the growth of IoT across the tourism and cultural heritage sectors. The choice of the theme is motivated by the fact that the Cultural Heritage is a substantial driver of the tourism industry and it has reaped many of the enormous benefits that technology offers. The COVID-19 pandemic has given that digital synergy a huge propulsion. This scenario also gives us the opportunity to devise how IoT technologies and applications could improve the safety, comfort and quality of the experience of the future travelers in a setting that still needs to be defined. The Summit will be held as a hybrid event, accepting in-person and virtual presentations.
