STE 2024

March 6 - 8, 2024; Arcada University, Helsinki/Finland

The Steering Committees of the EduNet Conference, the IEWC and the REV decided in Thessaloniki to merge all three conferences into a new conference, the International Conference on Smart Technologies & Education (STE), from 2024 onwards.

Within the STE2024, the EduNet Forum takes place as a prominent special session (our previous annual EduNet Conference). The EduNet Forum will feature presentations organized by Phoenix Contact/EduNet Forum Committee and industry workshops.

There are two main types of contributions:

Contributions for the scientific part of STE2024: All submissions will undergo a double-blind review process. All accepted and presented papers will be published as STE 2024 Proceedings in Springer's Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: September 19, 2023

Contributions to the EduNet Forum: The EduNet Forum Committee decides on the acceptance/rejection of contributions to the EduNet Forum. Speakers do not have to submit a full paper, but only an abstract and the presentation. Contributions to the EduNet Forum will not be published in the Springer proceedings.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: January 14, 2024

During the STE2024 the annual general meeting of the EWA will also take place.
