World Congress on CS, CE & Applied Computing – CSCE’17

Date: July 17-20, 2017
Venue: Monte Carlo Resort, Las Vegas,  USA

Submission Deadline: May 15, 2017

The 2017 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (CSCE’17)

INVITATION:

This announcement is ONLY for those who MISSED the opportunity to submit their papers in response to earlier “Call For Papers”. Therefore, authors who have ALREADY submitted papers in response to earlier “Call For Papers” should IGNORE this announcement. (Those who have been notified that their papers have been accepted, should still follow the instructions that were emailed to them; including meeting the deadlines mentioned in the notifications that were sent to them. Those who have not yet received a notification, will soon receive one).

We anticipate having between 1,000 and 2,000 participants in the Congress. The congress includes 21 major tracks ( http://americancse.org/events/ csce2017/conferences ) 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.

You are invited to submit a “LATE BREAKING PAPER”, “POSITION PAPER”, or “ABSTRACT/POSTER PAPER” for consideration. All accepted papers will be published in printed conference books/proceedings (with unique international ISBN number) and will also be made available online. The proceedings will be imprinted by the American Council on Science and Education, and distributed/published by CSREA (Computer Science Research, Education, and Applications Press). In addition, like prior years, extended versions of selected papers (about 40%) of the conference will appear in journals and edited research books (publishers include: Springer, Elsevier, BMC, and others); some of these books and journal special issues have already received the top 25% most downloads in their respective fields. See the link below for a very small subset of the books published mostly based on extended versions of the accepted papers of this congress: http://americancse.org/events/ csce2017/books-journal-special -issues

Each book in each series will be subject to Elsevier and Springer science indexing products (which includes: Scopus, SCI Compendex, Engineering Village, EMBASE, and others).

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

In response to this announcement, authors are given the opportunity to submit their papers for evaluation in one of the following three paper categories:

1. LATE BREAKING PAPERS: describe late-breaking/recent developments in the field. The maximum number of pages is 7. Please write the following on the first page of your submission “name of conference: LATE BREAKING PAPER”. If accepted, The length of the final/Camera- Ready paper will be limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages and the author will be given the opportunity to present the paper in a formal session.

2. POSITION PAPERS: enable discussions on emerging topics without the experimentation normally present in an academic paper. Commonly, such papers will substantiate the opinions or positions put forward with evidence from an extensive objective discussion of the topic. The maximum number of pages is 4. Please write the following on the first page of your submission “name of conference: POSITION PAPER”. If accepted, The length of the final/Camera-Ready paper will be limited to 4 (two-column IEEE style) pages and the author will be given the opportunity to present the paper in a formal session.

3. ABSTRACT/POSTER PAPERS: describe research roadmaps (similar to PhD plan or PhD prospectus). The maximum number of pages is 2. Please write the following on the first page of your submission “name of conference: ABSTRACT/POSTER PAPER”. If accepted, The length of the final/Camera-Ready paper will be limited to 2 (two-column IEEE style) pages and the author will be given the opportunity to present the paper in a discussion/poster session. 1184548

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. 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: http://american-cse.org/ and they conform to the two-column IEEE style format). The first page of the paper should include:

– 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 “LATE BREAKING PAPERS”, “POSITION PAPERS”, or “ABSTRACT/POSTER PAPERS”.
– 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/

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).

IMPORTANT DATES:

May 15, 2017 : Submission of papers: http://american-cse.org/
– LATE BREAKING PAPERS (maximum of 7 pages);
– POSITION PAPERS (maximum of 4 pages);
– ABSTRACT/POSTER PAPERS (maximum of 2 pages)

The sooner, a submission is received, the earlier, the notification will be sent out. (Authors who have already submitted papers before March 24, will receive decisions and status reports by around April 28.)

May 25, 2017 : Notification of acceptance (+/- two days)
