Call for Poster Papers

EAI SmartGov 2021 will host a session for short papers (6-11 pages) to be presented as posters. Poster presentations are best suited to research in progress, emerging research challenges, future directions, and novel approaches which are as yet insufficient for a regular SmartGov paper submission.
