Can your research support sustainable digital transformation?

If you think it can, submit a paper to Kaleidoscope.

The digital tech industry needs faster innovation to make itself sustainable and drive similar gains in other sectors.

Digital innovation for sustainability will be in focus at this year’s academic conference from the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

ITU Kaleidoscope 2024: Innovation and digital transformation for a sustainable world will happen from 21 to 23 October in New Delhi, India.

This 15th edition will run alongside the World Telecommunication Standardization Assembly, the governing conference for ITU standardization work taking place from 15 to 24 October.

Kaleidoscope conferences – alongside the ITU Journal on Future and Evolving Technologies and ITU Academia membership – support growing collaboration between academia and industry in research and development, as well as in bringing the latest innovations to market.

This year’s conference will also feature a special session on involving more young people in standards development and how ITU can support the next generation of consensus builders.

Researchers are encouraged to consult the Call for Papers. The deadline for submissions is 29 April.

Influence future standards

ITU Kaleidoscope is a peer-reviewed academic conference.

Each annual edition highlights emerging research trends and their implications for international standardization.

The conference welcomes submissions from both technical and social sciences.

This year submissions will be in four tracks:

  • Technology and next-generation network architectures
  • Applications and services for sustainable development
  • Enabling technologies
  • Social, economic, environmental, and policy aspects of sustainable development

Publication and recognition

All papers accepted and presented at the conference will be published in the Kaleidoscope Proceedings.

Outstanding papers may also be published in international journals, including the ITU Journal on Future and Evolving Technologies.

Authors of the three best papers will receive special recognition and will share in a prize fund of 6,000 Swiss francs (CHF).

Authors up to 30 years of age who present accepted papers at the conference will receive a Young Author Recognition Certificate.

More opportunities for research communities

The ITU Journal – free of charge to both readers and contributors – offers comprehensive coverage of fast-evolving communications and networking systems and technologies.

The online journal welcomes research submissions all year long on all topics relevant to the work of ITU. Along with research articles, the online ITU Journal includes recorded webinar discussions with researchers and industry leaders.

ITU Academia members participate in ITU expert groups responsible for radiocommunication, standardization, and development.

Contributions from academia strengthen ITU’s work and increase the impact of research.

ITU international standards, for example, support the global adoption of solutions developed collaboratively by academia and industry and boost return on investment for both.

ITU Kaleidoscope 2024, hosted by India’s Ministry of Communications, is organized in partnership with Waseda University, the Institute of Image Electronics Engineers of Japan, the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers of Japan, the Chair of Communication and Distributed Systems at RWTH Aachen University, the European Academy for Standardization, the University of the Basque CountryLiverpool John Mores University, and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.
