About the Conference

2021 International Conference on Digital Futures and Transformative Technologies (ICoDT2) aims to provide a superior international forum for sharing knowledge and results in theory, methodology and applications of Intelligence Systems. The Conference looks for significant contributions to all major fields of the Intelligence Systems in theoretical and practical aspects. The aim of ICoDT2 is to provide a platform to the researchers and practitioners from both academia as well as industry to meet and share cutting-edge development in the field.

Conference Sponsors

The conference is proudly hosted by National University of Sciences and Technology(NUST), Pakistan. The event is technically sponsored by the IEEE and supported by the IEEE Robotics and Automation Society.


The conference invites contributions in the areas of artificial intelligence and allied areas. Papers on the applications of AI and ML can also be submitted. The research may present advances in the theory, design, implementation, analysis, empirical evaluation, case studies of intelligent systems.

Submission Guidlines

The conference is soliciting full length papers on all the identified areas of research. Submissions should clearly establish the research contribution, its relevance, importance and novelty. Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings can be downloaded from http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html.

The Submission Process

Once a paper is submitted to the online conference system it will undergo blind review by three peers. As per IEEE guidelines all papers will undergo a mandatory plagiarism detection. Following the review of submitted papers, successful authors will be invited to attend and present their work at ICoDT2.

All authors are required to submit a blind version of the paper. Hence remove identifying information and affiliations prior to submission.
