COMPSAC 2016: The 40th IEEE Computer Society International Conference on Computers, Software & Applications

Atlanta, Georgia, USA - June 10-14, 2016

Connected World: New Challenges for Data, Systems & Applications


PDF Call for Papers

COMPSAC is the IEEE Computer Society Signature Conference on Computers, Software, and Applications. It is a major international forum for academia, industry, and government to discuss research results and advancements, emerging problems, and future trends in computer and software technologies and applications. The technical program includes keynote addresses, research papers, industrial case studies, plenary and specialized panels, fast abstracts, a doctoral symposium, poster sessions, and a number of workshops and tutorials on emerging and important topics.

The theme of the 40th COMPSAC is “Connected World: New Challenges for Data, Systems, and Applications.” Our world becomes more and more connected every day, with billions of computer applications, devices, and services interacting globally to make our lives safer, convenient, and more enjoyable. Computations, as well as sharable data and applications, are becoming available everywhere. This explosive growth brings us closer together and requires innovative technical solutions. With the rapidly shrinking gap between cyber and physical domains, we face many new challenges and new opportunities for computers, software, and applications. COMPSAC 2016 will provide a platform for in-depth discussion of such challenges both in traditional and in emerging fields such as smart and connected health, wearable computing, the Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems, social networking, and the smart planet.

COMPSAC 2016 will be organized as a tightly integrated union of several symposia, each of which focuses on a particular technical segment. Big data is a particularly highlighted theme in our symposia. Furthermore, COMPSAC 2016 will also include a student research symposium/competition, fast abstracts sessions, workshops, poster sessions, panels, and keynotes to facilitate discourse on and deepen the understanding of these challenges by furthering the fundamental contributions needed for advances in computing systems. Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research work, as well as industrial practice reports. Simultaneous submission to other publication venues is not permitted.
