Welcome to the 4th  International Conference on Wireless, Intelligent, and Distributed Environment for COMmunication (WIDECOM 2021)
The last decade has witnessed tremendous advances in computing and networking technologies, with the appearance of new paradigms such as Internet of Things (IoT) and Cloud computing, which have led to advances in wireless and intelligent systems for communications. Undoubtedly, these technological advances help improve many facets of human lives, for instance, through better healthcare delivery, faster and more reliable communications, significant gains in productivity, and so on. At the same time, the associated increasing demand for a flexible and cheap infrastructure for collecting and monitoring real-world data nearly everywhere, coupled with the aforementioned integration of wireless mobile systems and network computing raises new challenges with respect to the dependability of integrated applications and the intelligence-driven security threats against the platforms supporting these applications.
WIDECOM 2021 will focus on issues related to new dependability paradigms, design, and performance of dependable network computing and mobile systems, as well as issues related to the security of these systems. It provides a leading international forum that brings together researchers and practitioners from diverse fields related to the above-mentioned areas.
