EAI is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation to ensure the safety, comfort and quality of experience
for attendees
and a successful course of the event.

EAI is committed to holding the conference in 2020 and Accepted Authors who are unable to attend the event in person will be given
an option to present their submission online. In case the situation prevents the event from taking place in its original location,
it will be held fully in an interactive, live online setting. Find out what EAI conference live streams look like and discover unique benefits
that online participation brings you: Learn more

Accepted Authors will be notified about the final decision regarding the conference setting before the Camera-ready deadline.


IC4S is a premier conference that aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results on all aspects of Cognitive Computing Techniques and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS). It provides a premier interdisciplinary platform to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends and practical challenges encountered as well as solutions.

The objective of this resourceful event is to cover advances in all aspects of CPS as well as Sensing Intelligence including theory, tools, applications, systems, test-beds and field deployments. The conference fosters to develop fundamental principles that emphasize on the integration of cyber and physical elements, infrastructure for building CPS systems, highlighting the design, implementation, and investigation of CPS applications. In addition, Cognitive Computing is a sensing-driven-computing scheme that explores and integrates intelligence from all types of senses in various scenarios and solution contexts. It is well beyond the traditional human being’s senses.
