ICTs can be used as a catalyst for transforming life to meet the challenges of the new millennium, including global economic and financial crises, high unemployment rates, accessibility issues, global diseases, food availability and distribution, climate change, environmental disasters, energy consumption, transport systems, safety, security, and welfare. Sustainable communities will combine human-oriented technologies and human values.
To address these issues, and for a co-evolution of technology and sustainable communities, standards are indispensable. Developing these standards will require concerted global efforts by inter-sectoral stakeholders. Kaleidoscope 2013 will help to further such collaborations and highlight multidisciplinary aspects of future ICTs.
This academic conference is calling for original academic papers offering innovative and bold approaches in research and development to build smart, ethical, and sustainable communities.
Accepted papers will be made available through the IEEE Xplore. A prize fund totaling $10,000 will be awarded to the three best papers. Young Author Recognition certificates will be also issued.
