The Eighth International Symposium on Information and Communication Technology (SoICT 2017)
SoICT 2017 is an international symposium that covers four major areas of research that includes AI and Big Data Analytics, Network Communication & Security, Computer Vision. Following the past successful symposium SoICT 2016, which received submissions from 20 countries, the Eighth International Symposium on Information and Communication Technology (SoICT 2017) will be held in Nha Trang, very beautiful beach in Vietnam. The symposium aims at providing an academic forum for researchers and graduate students to share their latest research findings and to identify future challenges in computer science. The symposium will include tutorials and keynotes given by world-class speakers.
SoICT 2017 seeks articles describing novel results about theoretical, empirical, conceptual or experimental research in Computer Science. All contributions should be original, must be unpublished, and must not be submitted to other venues during the review period. The symposium language is English.
The paper must be prepared by using the "sigconf" conference template in ACM template and should not exceed 8 pages and must be submitted via EasyChair system.
SoICT 2017 proceedings will be published in the International Conference Proceedings Series by ACM as a volume in ACM ICPS (ISBN: 978-1-4503-5328-1), which will be archived in the ACM Digital Library, and indexed by DBLP, Ei Compendex, Scopus and submitted to be reviewed by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI Web of Science).
SoICT 2017 is organized in conjunction with CSBio 2017 (The 8th International Conference on Computational Systems-Biology and Bioinformatics).
Your participation in SoICT 2017 and CSBio 2017 is surely to be a great experience and one that you will long remember with many benefits to your future technical knowledge and your preparations to enhance your career and for embarking into the future. We look forward to seeing you in Nhatrang, Vietnam.
