EAI SmartGIFT 2021 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference.
In 2020, EAI successfully launched an online conference format to ensure the safety, comfort and quality of experience for attendees and a successful course of the events, all while retaining fully live interaction, publication and indexing. Due to the unrelenting global pandemic, this will also be the case in 2021.
Although we will miss having everyone meet and connect in person, we feel strongly that knowledge exchange must continue, if not more so. That is why we have equipped our online conferences with live viewing with chat, virtual Q&A, and a multitude of other measures to provide you with a great experience.

The conventional power grid refers to an electric grid as a network of transmission lines, substations, transformers and more that deliver electricity from the power plant to residential or industrial buildings. With the development of digital technology, smart grid enables the smooth integration of centralised or distributed power generation, energy storage, transmission and distribution, and demand management. The benefits of smart grid include enhanced reliability and resilience, higher intelligence and optimized control, decentralized operation, higher operational efficiency, more efficient demand management, and better power quality. However, the large-scale deployment of smart grid without proper utilizations can cause new dimension of threats, particularly in critical infrastructures that are highly dependent on the availability of electricity.
Modern telecommunications play a vital role in the smart grid as many of its operations and applications require vast amount of information to be communicated between entities in real-time for timely monitoring and control. Beyond smart grid, telecommunications are also an important enabler of human-to-human, human-to-machine, and machine-to-machine connectivity in other smart systems such as smart buildings, transportation and healthcare. These connections and interactions between networked entities will make possible the seamless provision of a wide variety of new services that provide a way of life that is secure, convenient, comfortable, and sustainable in future smart cities.
