The smart world is set to enhance everyday things with abilities of sensing, communication, computation and intelligence so that many tasks and processes could be simplified, more efficient and productive. It consists of numerous “smart things” that can be endowed with different levels/forms of computational intelligence and even capable of thinking. Research on smart world is an emerging research field covering many areas, essential problems and crucial issues in truly building the smart world that benefits humanity, and simultaneously safeguards the natural environment for sustainable development and evolution.

The IEEE Smart World Congress originated from the 2005 Workshop on Ubiquitous Smart Worlds (USW, Taipei) and the 2005 Symposium on Ubiquitous Intelligence and Smart World (UISW, Nagasaki). SmartWorld 2019 in Leicester is the continuation after the success of SmartWorld 2018 in Guangzhou, SmartWorld 2017 in San Francisco, and SmartWorld 2016 in Toulouse. IEEE SmartWorld 2019 aims to provide a high-profile, leading-edge platform for researchers and engineers to exchange and explore state-of-art advances and innovations in graceful integrations of Cyber, Physical and Social Worlds with Ubiquitous Intelligence.

In addition to the overarching SmartWorld research and technologies, Five co-located conferences are established focusing on critical and emerging topics of the SmartWorld development, including:
