NATA: COMPSAC Symposium on Novel Applications and Technology Advances in Computing
Contact NATA Organizers: firstname.lastname@example.org
This Symposium, Novel Applications and Technology Advances in Computing (NATA), is an integral part of the IEEE COMPSAC main conference. Annually, following the theme of the COMPSAC main conference, NATA uniquely positions itself to be a forum for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present recent findings, innovations, theories, methodologies, and practical experiences related to novel applications and technology that leverage today's convergence of massive information sources, powerful analysis techniques, and nearly instant access from any point on the globe. For 2016, examples include innovative applications and technology related to sustainable computing, social/occupational computing, smart cities, e-health, personalized and blended learning technologies, morphic computer design, big data, and cloud computing. The very nature of NATA necessitates evolution of its focus from one year to the next.
In this symposium, we will evaluate papers based on the innovation of the approach, advancement of technologies and level of research achievement. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- social network and crowd sourcing
- e-health and Web well-being
- smart cities and public places
- sustainable computing
- cloud computing, from middleware to applications, services
- green computing
- pervasive computing
- SNS analytics
- service federations
- life log
- sensor network applications and services
- personalized and blended learning technologies
- morphic computer design
Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research work and novel computer applications; as well as industrial practice reports. Simultaneous submission to other publication venues is not permitted.
The review and selection process for submissions is designed to identify papers that break new ground and provide substantial support for their results and conclusions as significant contributions to the field. Submissions will be selected that represent a major advancement in the subject of the symposia to which they are submitted. Authors of submissions with a limited contribution or scope may be asked to revise their submissions into a more succinct camera-ready format; e.g., a short paper, workshop paper, fast abstract, or poster. An independent review panel for submitted industrial practice reports has been established to conduct peer reviews using a different, but as rigorous, set of review criteria from the industrial perspective.
All presented contributions will be included the conference proceedings. The length of a camera-ready regular paper or industry practice report is limited to 10 pages. Short papers and workshop papers are limited to 6 pages; fast abstracts to 2 pages; and posters to 1 page. Please follow the IEEE Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines in preparing your paper. Each accepted paper (full, short, industry, workshop, or fast abstract) is required to be registered at full rate by one of its authors. Reduced registration rates are available for posters and Student Research Symposium papers, but such registrations will provide limited privileges during the conference. All presented papers will be published in the electronic proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society. In order to enable indexing through INSPEC and EI Index, and inclusion in the IEEE digital library, a paper must be presented in person by one of its authors.
A special poster session will be dedicated to Work-in-Progress, new ideas, and emerging fields and research topics in the area of computer software. An area on the conference premises will be designated for the presentation of such posters. Poster presenters are expected to bring their printed poster and handouts and be present for the entire duration of session. Attendees will browse the posters and directly interact with the presenters. Thus, the poster session is intended to be an informal, conversational forum for new ideas.
Best Paper and Best Student Paper Awards will be presented by COMPSAC 2016. The first author of the best student paper must be a full-time student. Student Research Symposium papers and posters are encouraged; a reduced registration rate applies. Authors of the best technical contributions will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper for consideration by reputable journals. In the past, certain technical contributions to COMPSAC were designated for eventual publication in journals including IEEE Transactions on Services Computing, Journal of Systems and Software, and Computer Communications — among others.
