General Chairs’ Welcome Message

On behalf of all the organizers of the Sixth Edition of the International IEEE Forum on Research and Technologies for Society and Industry – Innovation for a smart world (IEEE RTSI 2020, 6–9 Sept. 2021), we welcome you to the historic and beautiful Naples, Italy.

The RTSI forum is the flagship conference of the IEEE Italy Section and represents the annual meeting of researchers and industry professionals in the field of electrical, electronic, and information science and engineering. Specifically, the main purposes of the event are:

• to promote and strengthen partnerships and cooperation between Academia and Industry;

• to increase understanding and awareness of how engineering and technology can positively affect quality of life;

• to promote discussion between the research community and government bodies about effective and successful research policies;

• to disseminate recent advancements, discoveries and applications;

• to discuss ideas and promote cooperation between researchers working in different research areas.

The theme of RTSI 2021 is Innovation for a smart world. Without any question, the innovation in electrical, electronic, and information science and engineering has strongly transformed our society in recent decades, and the main purpose of RTSI is to take up such a challenge and to foster excellence in technological innovation. 

The organizing committee of RTSI2021 extends a cordial invitation to you to came Napoli, Italy. If you are unable to attend the Forum in person because of Covid-19, you are very welcome to attend virtually.

RTSI includes panels, technical sessions, tutorials, special events and exhibitions, as reported in detail in the technical program. In particular, the technical sessions are organized into three main tracks of great interest and relevance:

The RTSI organization was a complex task due to the large and increasing interest of our research and application areas. Efforts from many people were required to shape the technical program, arrange accommodations, manage the administrative aspects, and set up the social functions. We like to take this opportunity to thank all and each of them.
We like also to thank all the public and private organizations that support the meeting in different ways.
Several Awards will be assigned during the Award Ceremony to recognize the important work and contribution of our colleagues. Awards will be also assigned to young researchers with the aim of encouraging them to carry on their activity.
Enjoy the fellowship of colleagues and experts, and spend some free time in the midst of natural and artistic beauty. We will appreciate your important feedback on the conference organization that represents for us the best way to improve the quality of RTSI, and to achieve lasting excellence. It is therefore with great honor and pride that we welcome you to Naples, Italy, and to RTSI 2021. We hope that you enjoy both your participation in the conference and your stay in beautiful Naples.
