Important notice!  BIA-2021 was postponed to June 2-4, 2022

The main reason for this decision is the low number of submissions we received, despite extending the submission deadline by more than a month. We hope that a conference held on June 2-4, 2022, will offer a better opportunity for a physical presence. Our expectation is by that time, many countries will reach over 70% of COVID-19 vaccinations, and the pandemic will be over. We sincerely apologise to all Authors for the inconvenience this may have caused.

BIA-2021 (to be held June 2-4, 2022) is organized and sponsored by the Technical University of Varna and technically supported by IEEE and IEEE Bulgaria CAS/SSC Joint Chapter.

Indexing: Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore. All conference papers included in IEEE Xplore will be indexed in the SCOPUS database.
