The Ninth International Symposium on Information and Communication Technology
(SoICT 2018)

SoICT 2018 is an international symposium that covers four major areas of research that includes AI and Big Data Analytics, Information Networks and Communication Systems, Human Computer Interface, Software Engineering and Applied Computing. Following the past successful symposium SoICT 2017, which received submissions from 22 countries, the 9th International Symposium on Information and Communication Technology (SoICT 2018) will be held in Danang, 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 2018 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 All contributions should be original, must be unpublished, and must not be submitted to other venues during the review period.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 2018 proceedings will be published in the International Conference Proceedings Series by ACM as an ICPS volume in the ACM Digital Library (ISBN: 978-1-4503-6539-0), which will be archived in the ACM Digital Library.  SoICT 2018  will be indexed by DBLP and Ei Compendex, as well as being submitted for review and potential indexing in Scopus and Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI Web of Science).


Relevant topics of the symposium include, but are not limited to:

  • AI and Big Data Analytics: 
    • - Artificial intelligence, Knowledge Representation, Machine Learning, Uncertainty.
    • - Big data, Data Mining, Information Retrieval, Social computing.
    • - Natural Language processing, Search.
