Kaleidoscope 2014: Call for Papers deadline approaching

Saint Petersburg - Iakov Filimonov25 November 2013 is the submission deadline for academic papers discussing industry and technology convergence in today’s ICT-dependent world.

“Living in a converged world- impossible without standards?” is the theme for ITU’s Kaleidoscope 2014 that will be held at the Bonch-Bruevich Saint-Petersburg State University of Telecommunications (SPbSUT), Russian Federation, 3-5 June 2014. A prize fund totaling $10,000 will be awarded to the three best papers, which will also be considered for publication in a special edition of IEEE Communications Magazine.

Kaleidoscope events are peer-reviewed academic conferences that aim to identify emerging developments in ICTs and, in particular, areas in need of international standards to support the development of successful products and services. 

Kaleidoscope 2014 is being organized by ITU with the technical co-sponsorship of IEEE ComSoc, the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers (IEICE) of Japan and Popov Society of the Russian Federation; in partnership with the Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications, Russian Federation, Waseda University, the Institute of Image Electronics Engineers of Japan (I.I.E.E.J.), the European Academy for Standardization (EURAS), the University of the Basque Country and Tampere University of Technology.

Kaleidoscope 2014 will highlight the need for future standards for ICT services and applications to take into account aspects of socio-economic, cultural, ethical, legal and sustainable-development policy. Developing these standards will require concerted global efforts by stakeholders across industry sectors. Kaleidoscope 2014 therefore promotes collaboration in this regard and will highlight the multidisciplinary nature of future ICTs.
