RIVF (Research, Innovation and Vision for the Future) has become a major scientific event for researchers in the fields of Computing and Communication Technologies in the world since 2003. The conference series has been held alternatively between the northern and southern parts of Vietnam. The RIVF has become an IEEE conference since the IEEE Vietnam Section formed in 2007.  RIVF 2021 is the 15th conference in this series. Le Quy Don Technical University (LQDTU) is hosting the conference for May 6-8, 2021 in Hanoi, Vietnam. The RIVF is a premier forum designed for researchers and practitioners to explore cutting-edge ideas, discuss problems, share their research results, identify emerging issues, and establish academic collaborations in various disciplines of computing and communications.
