The joint conferences is among the top five largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate to have attendees from about 75 countries and territories. To get a feeling about the conferences’ atmosphere, see some delegates photos available at:

2016 Congress: http://album.phanfare.com/14370248
2015 Congress: http://album.phanfare.com/6981287
2014 Congress: http://album.phanfare.com/6626396

An important mission of The Congress is “Providing a unique platform for a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress makes concerted effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities (such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies, and research centers/labs) from all over the world. The congress also attempts to connect participants from institutions that have teaching as their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions that have research as their main mission. The congress uses a quota system to achieve its institution and geography diversity objectives.”

Foreword

We anticipate having between 1,000 and 2,000 participants in the joint conferences (Congress: http://americancse.org/events/csce2017 ). The congress is composed of 105 technical, research, and panel sessions as well as a number of keynote lectures and tutorials; all will be held simultaneously, same location and dates: July 17-20, 2017. Last year, the Congress had attracted speakers/authors and participants affiliated with over 176 different universities (including many from the top 50 ranked institutions), major IT corporations (including: Microsoft, Google, Apple, SAP, Facebook, Oracle, Amazon, Yahoo, Samsung, IBM, Ebay, GE, Siemens, Philips, Ericsson, BAE Systems, Hitachi, NTT, …), major corporations (including: Exxon Mobil, Johnson & Johnson, JPMorgan Chase, PetroChina, GlaxoSmithKline, HSBC, Airbus, Boeing, Hyundai, …), government research agencies (NSF, NIH, DoE, AirForce, NSA National Security Agency, …), US national laboratories (including, NASA, ANL, LLNL, Sandia, ORNL, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, Los Alamos National Lab, National Cancer Institute, NIST, …), and a number of Venture Capitalists as well as distinguished speakers discussing Intellectual Property issues. Last year, 55% of attendees were from academia, 24% from industry; 20% from government and funding agencies; and 1% unknown. About half of the attendees were from outside USA; from 74 nations.

Submission of Papers

You are invited to submit a paper for consideration. All accepted papers will be published in printed conference books (each with a unique international ISBN number), imprinted by the American Council on Science and Education, and distributed/published by CSREA (Computer Science Research, Education, and Applications Press). The proceedings of each conference will also be made available online. The printed proceedings and books will be available for distribution on site at the conference. The books will be indexed in science databases, including EBSCO (www.ebsco.com), one of the largest subject index systems, and others. ACM Digital Library is also including the titles into its databases as well as ProQuest indexing databases and others.

In addition, like prior years, extended versions of selected papers (about 40%) will appear in journals and 15 edited research books; publishers include, Springer, Elsevier, BMC, and others). Each book in each series will be subject to Elsevier and Springer science indexing products (which includes: Scopus, www.info.scopus.com; SCI Compendex, Engineering Village, www.ei.org; EMBASE, www.info.embase.com; and others). See the web link below for a small subset of such publications: (some of these books and journal special issues have already received the top 25% downloads in their respective fields and/or identified as “Highly Accessed” by publishers and/or science citation index trackers.) 217694

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them to the evaluation web site at:  http://american-cse.org/ . Submissions must be uploaded by the due date (see IMPORTANT DATES) and must be in either MS doc or pdf formats (7 pages for Regular Research Papers; 4 pages for Short Research Papers; 2 pages for Extended Abstract/Poster Papers – the number of pages include all figures, tables, and references). All reasonable typesetting formats are acceptable (later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting format to prepare their final papers for publication; these formatting instructions appear at the submission web site and they conform to the two-column IEEE style format). Papers must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.

The first page of the paper should include the followings:
– Title of the paper
– Name, affiliation, postal address, and email address of each author  (identify the name of the Contact Author)
– Abstract (between 100 and 120 words)
– A maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the work
described in the paper
– Write the type of the submission as “Regular Research Paper”, “Short Research Paper”, or “Extended Abstract/Poster Paper”.
– The actual text of the paper can start from the first page (space permitting).

Submissions are to be uploaded to the submission/evaluation web site portal at http://american-cse.org/

Type of Submissions/Papers:

 – Full/Regular Research Papers (maximum of 7 pages): Regular Research Papers should provide detail original research contributions. They must report new research results that represent a contribution to the field; sufficient details and support for the results and conclusions should also be provided. The work presented in regular papers are expected to be at a stage of maturity that with some additional work can be published as journal papers.

– Short Research Papers (maximum of 4 pages): Short Research Papers report on ongoing research projects. They should provide overall research methodologies with some results. The work presented in short papers are expected to be at a stage of maturity that with some additional work can be published as regular papers.

 – Extended Abstract/Poster Papers (maximum of 2 pages): Poster papers report on ongoing research projects that are still in their infancy (i.e., at very early stages). Such papers tend to provide research methodologies without yet concrete results.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In cases of contradictory recommendations, a member of the conference program committee would be charged to make the final decision (accept/reject); often, this would involve seeking help from additional referees. Papers whose authors include a member of the conference program committee will be evaluated using the double-blinded review process. (Essay/philosophical papers will not be refereed but may be considered for discussion/panels).
