Event Details

The 17th International Conference on Mobility, Sensing and Networking (IEEE MSN 2021) provides a forum for academic researchers and industry practitioners to present research progresses, exchange new ideas, and identify future directions in the field of Mobility, Sensing and Networking. MSN 2021 is technically sponsored by IEEE.

Scope and Objectives
Mobility, sensing and networking are the key areas of enabling technologies for the next-generation networks, Internet of Things and Cyber-Physical Systems. Recent years have witnessed the increasing convergence of algorithms, protocols, and applications for mobility, sensing and networking in a range of applications including connected vehicles, smart cities, industries, and smart health. Building on the past 16 years of success, the 17th International Conference on Mobility, Sensing and Networking (MSN 2021) provides a forum for academic researchers and industry practitioners to exchange new research ideas, present their progress, and identify future directions in the field of mobility, sensing and networking.
