The World Forum is all about the nurture and promotion of IoT for the benefit of society and humanity. The conference is focused on the betterment of life through the responsible and ethical adoption of IoT technologies, applications, and solutions. Please join us in New Orleans where you can take an active part in the dialog about IoT, explore the vast array of IoT technologies, learn about the latest applications and developments, network with the experts, and enjoy the unique ambiance of charm, food, and music of New Orleans.
Organizing for WFIoT2021, in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, the IEEE and the World Forum Conference Committees have the utmost concern for the safety and comfort of all participants and attendees. There is considerable uncertainty in the conditions we will face in June of 2021 in New Orleans, in travel options and restrictions, and economic impacts. What we have planned for is a predominantly face to face meeting that includes provisions for remote participation and attendance, for those who will not be able to be in New Orleans in person. We have also taken the contingency steps, if necessary, to hold an On-Line only Conference if warranted. That call will be made in the Spring of 2021. In the meantime, we are working with our conference hotel and suppliers to provide a venue where the conference can be safely conducted following health guidelines and best practices.
The World Forum brings together experts in IoT from around the globe and the diverse community of stakeholders that make up the IoT ecosystem. Today that touches almost all sectors of the world economy. The program covers topics of importance to IoT as well as aspects of IoT important to New Orleans, the surrounding area, and the Gulf Coast.
There are multiple distinct aspects to the WFIoT2021 reflecting the vast range of activities and interests in IoT.
