Call for Session Chairs and Keynote Speakers

Dear UV Friends, 

We are pleased to inform you that the 6th IEEE International Conference on Universal Village, IEEE UV2022, will again be held virtually on October 22-25, 2022, with the main venue in Boston, USA. We are now calling for session chairs and keynote speakers for IEEE UV2022.

Universal Village (UV) is a new concept proposed by MIT’s Universal Village Program which exemplifies an ideal future society that pursues harmony between humans and nature through the wise use of advanced technologies.  Previous IEEE UV conferences (UV2013, UV2014, UV2016, UV2018, and UV2020) were groundbreaking international venues that inspired successful collaboration between governments, academia, industries, and civil society.  IEEE UV2022 will continue to call for collective efforts from world-renowned experts across multidisciplinary fields to collaborate beyond traditional field boundaries.  

The Theme of IEEE UV2022 is “Post-Pandemic Reflection on Health, Harmony, and Sustainability: Mobility and Virtual Connection; Diversity and System Efficiency; Responsiveness and Resilience; Inclusiveness and Integration.” Sessions of IEEE UV2022 may include, but are not limited to, the following topics:
