SSI Conference 2022

SSI Conference square
EPoSS event

After a digital SSI Conference in 2021, the Smart Systems community will hopefully meet again in presence in Grenoble in 2022.

As co-organiser of this event EPoSS Association invites you to present your recent developments in the field of Smart Systems Integration and system solutions there. The conference will cover topics along the whole value chain starting from MEMS/ NEMS, photonics, microfluidics or printed technologies for sensor manufacturing up to complete smart systems with embedded intelligence and to different application scenarios.

Digitisation is not only increasingly entering our lifes, it is a real game changer! There will be not only advances in individual components and subsystems necessary, especially connectivity and implementation of intelligence “at the edge” integrated in smart modules and systems will be the key. To be successful in future, interdisciplinary approaches are required more than ever.

The conference will therefore cover all aspects and technology readiness levels. Key enablers and key technologies will be addressed as well as new design concepts and embedded intelligence as well as specific application domains (mobility, energy, industry, agrifood, biomedical applications and healthy living).

Beyond research topics, EPoSS will organise sessions on strategy and business creation as well as on impact resulting from European funded projects in the domain.

In an engaging and compact format, the conference will provide a unique and valuable opportunity to interact with the stakeholders of the Smart Systems community along the value chain by means of technical sessions, strategy panels and exhibition booths.

Research and technology organisations, small and mid-sized enterprises and industry will share their latest approaches and the results.

Call for Papers

Are you interested in giving a talk at Smart Systems Integration 2022, please choose a track topic (see below) and submit your abstract by December 31, 2021 (only for scientific abstracts). The deadline for abstracts from industry is extended to Janaury 6, 2022. If you cannot meet the deadline please inform the technical organiser at  

­The online submission is available.

NOTE: The SSI conference will be held in Grenoble. A hybrid light version will also be offered. The presentations will be available online on the day of the conference via pre-recorded videos. Virtual participants will be able to log in via an online platform and watch the presentations flexibly on the day of the conference.,As a speaker, we also offer you the opportunity to give the talk online via live feed at the conference. Please note this in the presentation title field when submitting the abstract (as online presentation).

There are two opportunities for presentation at the conference:

  • Scientific abstracts need an abstract and later a full scientific paper (min. 4 pages). The full papers undergo a Peer review process. Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore® subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality.
  • Industry and European Projects are kindly encouraged to submit abstracts for presentation only. There is no full paper requested. The abstracts will not be included in IEEE Xplore®.
