Welcome from the Chair

You are cordially invited to participate in the 1st International Electronic Conference on Information (IECI2021). This conference is designed to bring together researchers working in the field to present and discuss their recent contributions without needing to leave the comfort of their home. Attending and participating in this online conference is free of charge.

Information has always been pervasive and omnipresent, but only recently has information become visible and people better understood its importance. As a result, the study of information only started in the 20th century, and researchers have suggested numerous concepts of information and created many theories of information, such as syntactic information theory, statistical information theory, semantic information theory, algorithmic information theory, and economic information theory, to name but a few. This diversity of information theories and concepts of information was unified by the general theory of information, which explained the essence of information, encompassed all other information theories, revealed physical and mental counterparts of information, and provided scientific explanations to many information mysteries.

In addition, the information approach has been exploited in many areas, such as physics, biology, and sociology.

We sincerely welcome you to take part in this conference, exchange and share ideas and experiences, discuss the latest developments, and identify future trends for information theory, information technology and applications as we continue to move forward.

We will make every effort to facilitate interaction and the exchange of ideas during the conference period. All presenters will have two options in the conference participation: either to prepare a poster or video of your presentation, which will be uploaded onto the conference platform in advance, for viewing by others during the conference period. We will announce further details of the technological requirements and schedule in due course.

The conference will consist of three sessions, which reflect the interdisciplinary nature of information and its applications:

  • Session A: Information Systems and Applications
  • Session B: Information Processes and Artificial Intelligence
  • Session C: Information Theory and Communications Technology

We are looking forward to receiving your contributions to this scientific event and would like to thank you in advance for your active support.

Call for Submissions

The 1st International Electronic Conference on Information will be held from 1 to 15 December 2021. This event will enable researchers working in the field to present their research and exchange ideas with their colleagues without the need to travel.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Information Systems and Applications;
  • Information Processes and Artificial Intelligence;
  • Information Theory and Communications Technology.

The conference will be completely free of charge—both to attend and for scholars to upload and present their latest work on the conference platform. There will also be the possibility to submit selected papers to the conference Special Issue of journal Information with a 20% discount on the APCs.

IECI2021 offers the opportunity to participate in this international, scholarly conference without having the concern or expenditure of travel—all you need is your computer and access to the Internet. We would like to invite you to “attend” this conference and present your latest work.

Abstracts (in English) should be submitted by 8 September 2021 8 October 2021 online at For accepted abstracts, Poster/ PowerPoint/Video Presentation (max. 5 minutes) can be submitted by 20 October 2021 2 November 2021.

Presentation Slides

Authors are encouraged to prepare a presentation in PowerPoint or similar software, to be displayed online along with the abstract. Slides, if available, will be displayed directly on the website using's proprietary slides viewer. Slides can be prepared in exactly the same way as for any traditional conference where research results can be presented. Slides should be converted into PDF format before submission so that our process can easily and automatically convert them for displaying online.

We recommend the following template for your presentation:

  • Length of the presentation: No more than 30 slides;
  • Slide 1 (strictly one slide): Title, authors’ names, affiliation(s), email address of the corresponding author, and logos of the laboratory and/or institution (not mandatory);
  • Slide 2 (strictly one slide): Graphical abstract, repeat the title of the presentation but avoid other text as much as possible;
  • Slide 3 (strictly one slide): Abstract (max. 250 words) and 3–5 keywords separated by semicolons;
  • Slide 4 and following slides: Should contain introduction, results, discussion, and conclusions in this sequence;
  • Last slide: Acknowledgments, and logos of sponsors (not mandatory).



Posters will be available online on the conference website during and after the event. Participants will be able to ask questions and make comments about the posters.

Video Presentations

Authors are also encouraged to submit video presentations. The video should be no longer than 5 minutes and prepared in one of the following formats: .mp4 / .webm / .ogg (max size: 250Mb). It should be submitted before 20 October 2021 2 November 2021.

Tips for authors: If you would like to prepare a video based on your PowerPoint presentation, you may use the "record slide" function in the PowerPoint.

Potential Conflicts of Interest

All authors must disclose all relationships or conflicts of interest that could inappropriately influence or bias their work. This should be conveyed in a separate "Conflict of Interest" statement preceding the "Acknowledgments" and "References" sections at the end of the manuscript. If there is no conflict, please state "The authors declare no conflict of interest." Financial support for the study must be fully disclosed under the "Acknowledgments" section.


MDPI, the publisher of the platform, is an open access publisher. We believe that authors should retain the copyright to their scholarly works. Hence, by submitting a communication paper to this conference, you retain the copyright of your paper, but you grant MDPI the non-exclusive right to publish this paper online on the platform. This means you can easily submit your paper to any scientific journal at a later stage and transfer the copyright to its publisher (if required by that publisher).
