​​​​Kaleidoscope 2020 – Industry-driven digital transformation is the twelfth in a series of peer-reviewed academic conferences organized by ITU to bring together a wide range of views from universities, industry, and research institutions. The aim of the Kaleidoscope conferences is to identify emerging advancements in information and communication technologies (ICTs) and, in particular, areas in need of international standards to aid the healthy development of the Information Society.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution has data analytics at its core, and relies on innovations in fields such as robotics, cyber-physical systems, digital twins, virtual simulation, augmented reality, edge computing, artificial intelligence and blockchain – innovations all contributing to digital transformation of industrial processes.

In particular, the manufacturing sector has been an early adopter of new technologies capitalizing on connectivity and intelligence, but these technologies introduce endless possibilities – the automotive, energy, retail and healthcare industries are all moving in this direction.

Call for Papers

Prospective authors are invited to submit full, original papers. The submission should be within eight pages, including a summary and references, using the template available on the conference’s website. All papers will go through a double-blind peer-review process. Submission must be made electronically; see for more details on online submission (EDAS). Paper proposals will be evaluated based on content, originality, clarity, relevance to the conference’s theme and, in particular, significance to future standards.


Submission of full paper proposals: 6 April 2020

Notification of paper acceptance: 12 June 2020

Submission of camera-ready accepted papers: 26 June 2020

Publication and presentation

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings. In addition, extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Technology Marketing, the International Journal of Standardization Research, or the Journal of ICT Standardization.


A prize fund totalling CHF 6 000.- will be shared among the authors of the three best papers, as judged by the Steering and Technical Programme Committees. In addition, young authors of up to 30 years of age presenting accepted papers will receive Young Author Recognition certificates.
