EAI VALUETOOLS 2021 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference (with an on-site possibility).

In 2020, EAI successfully launched an online conference format to ensure the safety, comfort and quality of experience for attendees and a successful course of the events, all while retaining fully live interaction, publication and indexing. Due to the unrelenting global pandemic, this will also be the case in 2021.
If the situation allows it, the event will take place in its original location with an option to present remotely. In any case, all matters related to publication and indexing will remain unchanged. Learn more about EAI’s online conferences.

VALUETOOLS authors have enjoyed over 77.000 downloads in ACM DL.
