We usually select reviewers based on a few criteria as follows:

  • Qualification of reviewer (PhD – depending on subject area)

  • Whether they have reviewed before

  • The number of papers they have published in their given area of expertise

  • How well those papers have been cited

  • Recommendations from other researchers/reviewers they know or have worked with

Once we approve your qualifications, you will be counted in the list of reviewers on this website. Review period will start up after the deadline of submission.

2nd EAI International Conference on Nature of Computation and Communication

The ICTCC Conference is a place for highly original ideas about how the nature is going to shape computing systems of the future. Hence, it focuses on rigorous approaches and cutting-edge solutions, which encompass three classes of major methods:

  • Those that take inspiration from nature for the development of novel problem solving techniques;
  • Those that are based on the use of computers or networks to synthesize natural phenomena; and
  • Those that employ natural materials (e.g., molecules,) to compute or communicate.

Its purpose is to make a formal basis more accessible to researchers, scientists, professionals and students as well as developers and practitioners in ICT by providing them with state-of-the-art research results, applications, opportunities and future trends.

We hope that the conference will receive many papers and the participation of a large number of students, researchers, and professionals from all over the world.

Original papers are solicited for the ICTCC 2016. In particular, theoretical contributions should be formally stated and justified, and practical applications should be based on their firm formal basis. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, the following:


  • Autonomic computing/communicating
  • Amorphous computing
  • Biologically-inspired computing/communicating
  • Cellular automata
  • Cellular computing
  • Collective intelligence in computing/communicating
  • Collision-based computing
  • Computation/communication based on chaos and dynamical systems
  • Computation based on physical principles such as relativistic, optical, spatial, collision-based computing
  • Context-aware computing/communicating
  • DNA computing
  • Evolutionary computing
  • Fuzzy computing
  • Hypercomputation
  • Massive parallel computing
  • Membrane computing
  • Molecular computing
  • Neural computing
  • Optical computing
  • Physarum computing
  • Quantum computing
  • Relativistic computing
  • Spatial computing
  • Swam intelligence in computing/communicating
  • Wetware computing


  • The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organization devoted to the advancement of innovation in the field of ICT

  • All accepted papers will be submitted for publication to Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries

  • The proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: DBLP, Google Scholar, Thomson Scientific ISI Proceedings, EI Elsevier Engineering Index, CrossRef, Scopus, as well as ICST's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).

  • Selected papers, particularly those nominated for the Best Paper competition, will be automatically considered for publication will be invited to publish in the EAI Endorsed Transactions on Context-aware Systems and Applications


  • Workshop proposals due: 01 April 2015

  • Tutorial/Industry track proposal deadline: 1 August 2015

  • Demo/Poster proposal deadline: 1 August 2015
