Summary:

A rapid global deployment of 5G and plans of 6G, Internet of Things (IoT), Robotics Manufacturing and 3-D Printing and allied technologies have emerged over past decade and are gaining momentum all over the globe both in the developed and developing world. It is anticipated that such technologies will guide the future industrial growth and global economies. These technologies challenge traditional professional models and the projects typically involve a long list of internal and international stakeholders and an even a longer list of potential service providers.

Many of these technologies are interwoven and their developments depend on each other requiring a system approach for their research and development. Thus, it makes a challenge to get all the pieces of technology to work together seamlessly in IoT projects environment and such applications.

Focus:

Authors are requested to submit papers for the HONET2021 Symposium/Workshop on the theory and applications of the new emerging technologies. The topics on which the papers can be submitted include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Big data and internet of things
