IEEE 9th World Forum on Internet of Things
12–27 October 2023 // Aveiro, Portugal


The 9th IEEE World Forum on the Internet of Things (WF-IoT2023) seeks submissions and proposals for original technical papers and presentations that address the Internet of Things (IoT), its theoretical and technological building blocks, the applications that drive the growth and evolution of IoT, operational considerations, experimentation, experiences from deployments, and the impacts of IoT on consumers, the research community, the public sector, and commercial verticals.

The theme for WF-IoT2023 is “The Blue Planet: A Marriage of Sea and Space”, encouraging the submissions of content focused on aspects of IoT that cover most of our planet and the near space environment. The World Forum will be held as a hybrid event, accepting in person and virtual presentations, and will be conducted between 12 October and 27 October 2023.
