The Faculty of Computing and Informatics at the Namibia University of Science and Technology is the host for the 2021, 3rd IMITEC conference.


The theme of the conference is “Imagining the future”. We have seen current catastrophes, Tsunamis and Pandemics. What does the future look like? What will be the future pandemics? “COVID – FUTURE”? In this theme we welcome authors who bring forward innovative ideas, visions, dreams and imaginations of alternative solutions for the future. Of note, the theme anchors on the 2nd edition of the IMITEC conference “From Kilobyte to Exabyte”.  


To cater for a broad audience the 2021, 3rd IMITEC conference will include the following:


i.    Preliminary workshops on cutting-edge topics,

ii.   Research paper sessions and

iii.  Keynote addresses.


Authors are invited from all over the world to submit previously unpublished work for possible presentation at the 2021, 3rd IMITEC conference. All papers will be evaluated based on the criterion:

i.        Originality,

ii.      Depth and relevance to the conference themes,

iii.    Technical and scientific merit,

iv.    Clarity and vital insights and

v.      Potential for long-term impact.


New-idea papers are particularly encouraged.


Papers will undergo double-blind peer reviews by an international panel of experts to ensure that only high-quality papers are admitted in order to attract interesting and thought-provoking sessions at the conference. All submissions must be in English as it is the official conference language and all accepted conference papers will be published in IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
