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


TAIN: COMPSAC Symposium on Technologies and Applications of the Internet


Contact TAIN Organizers:

The Internet has revolutionized and changed the way we communicate, socialize, entertain, access information and conduct business. It has  evolved into a pervasive ecosystem of connected computers, mobile  gadgets, sensors, home appliances, and a variety of other devices. This evolution has led to a deep intertwining of the physical, social and  digital worlds, raising new research agendas and challenging our understanding of the requirements for a vastly interconnected world. TAIN symposium provides a forum to share latest innovations on Internet technologies and applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: wireless, mobile, ad-hoc and sensor networks and applications; Internet of things (IoT) and machine-to-machine (M2M) communications; peer-to-peer (P2P), overlay, cloud and content distribution networks (CDN); network security, authentication, assurance and trusted communication; network protocol and architectures; network simulation, measurement, administration and management; emerging network technologies such as software defined network (SDN).

Paper Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research work and novel computer applications; as well as industrial practice reports.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 ComputingJournal of Systems and Software, and Computer Communications — among others.
