Recognizing all great researchers equally.

Call for Papers

Scope

The ICTCC 2018 conference (co-located with ICCASA 2018 conference) sponsored by EAI, Hung Vuong University in Phu Tho Province (HVU) and Nguyen Tat Thanh University (NTTU) 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
  • 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 2018. 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:

Topics

  • 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
  • Swarm intelligence in computing/communicating
  • Wetware computing

Publication

All accepted and presented papers are published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, appearing in the LNICST series.

ICTCC proceedings are indexed in leading indexing services, including Ei Compendex, ISI Web of Science, Scopus, Crossref, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI´s own EU Digital Library (EUDL)

Authors of selected best accepted and presented papers will be invited to submit an extended version to EAI Endorsed Transactions on Context-aware Systems and Applications.

Paper submission

Papers should be submitted through EAI ‘Confy’ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section).

The submissions should be formatted with single-spaced, single-column pages using on A4 or letter pages in Springer LNICST style format. The maximum number of pages is 10 for full papers. Authors should submit a 6-page single-column manuscript for short papers. The camera-ready version of an accepted full (short) paper cannot exceed 10 (6) pages.
