Tallinn University of Technology

Scope and Topics

“Smart technologies and services” is a very wide-ranging multidisciplinary research, development, and application field of rapid growth and expansion. The conference BEC2022 will provide an opportunity to come together and discuss ones’ recent research work in defined topics of the field at an international forum in Tallinn, Estonia.

Topics of the BEC2022 will include: but will not necessarily be limited to, the following areas:
