Note that an abstract must be submitted before the paper. All paper submissions must be in English. The final fulltext paper must not exceed eight (8) pages in length. The papers should be formatted according to the provided template. ICTIMT 2021 uses a double-blind review process, meaning both authors and reviewers remain anonymous to each other.
