INFOS is a premier forum for researchers to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, outcomes, experiences, and challenges in different aspects of computing and informatics.

We invite high quality submissions of technical research papers describing novel contributions and results of conceptual, experimental, and theoretical cutting-edge research in computing and informatics domain.

We welcome submissions addressing topics:

Advanced Computing Technologies and Applications (ACTA)

Software Engineering Technologies and Applications (SETA)

Cloud Computing Technologies and Applications (CCTA)

Information, Network, and Cyber Security  (INCS)

Data Sciences, Technology, and Applications (DSTA)

Internet of Things, Networking, and Embedded Systems (INES)

 

Proceedings

INFOS 2016 proceedings will be published by the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS) under the ISBN number 978-1-4503-4062-5. It is planned to run the conference as parallel streams of high quality presentations with attached poster sessions and demonstrations. All accepted papers that are presented at the conference would be included in the proceedings. Advantages for authors when publishing in ACM-ICPS can be found here 

Formatting Guidelines

All submitted papers must conform to the ACM-ICPS formatting guidelines (For assistance, please contact ACM’s TeX support team at Aptara. Please do not make changes to the standard format or modify the style files or any layout parameters. Papers must not exceed 7 pages including all references, figures, tables, and appendices. Only ONE extra page can be purchased for an extra $50. Papers must be proofread to prevent typographical errors and language mistakes in grammar, style, and spelling. Papers must be submitted as a trouble-free high-resolution PDF.

INFOS 2016 reviewing process is double-blind. Please make sure that the submission does not disclose the authors’ identities or affiliation in anyway. We recommend replacing authors’ names and affiliations with the tracking number of the submission. Authors are requested to ensure that any references to their own previous work are made in a way that does not disclose their identity. For example, instead of "in previous work, we have shown X [ref]" authors are asked to consider expressions such as "X was shown in [ref]". Authors are also asked to ensure that the PDF file submitted does not contain embedded identifying information. Also, please make sure any acknowledgments or references to things like project/group names or webpages do not give away the authors' identity. Identifying information can be added at the authors' discretion in the final camera-ready version of the paper.

We encourage authors to obtain ethical approval for experiments with human subjects from their corresponding institutions' Internal Review Board and demonstrate this information as part of the submission.

INFOS 2016 will not accept any paper that, at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. Authors are also required not to submit their papers elsewhere during INFOS 2016's review period. Authors will be required to confirm that their submissions conform to these requirements at the time of submission. Submitted papers must comply with the following double submission and plagiarism and self-plagiarism policies.

To ensure all submissions are treated fairly and equally, authors are asked to follow all the instructions above. Submitted papers might be rejected without reviewing if they do not adhere to all the above requirements.

Evaluation

All relevant papers will be double-blindly peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers from INFOS 2016 international program committee of the selected track before acceptance for publication in the proceedings. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality, relevance, significance of the contribution, quality of presentation, and appropriate comparisons to related existing work. Submitted papers and all their underlying research must comply with the professional standards of the discipline.

Submitting for Review

Papers must be submitted through the EDAS (https://edas.info/N21273) submission system by the stated deadline. The deadline is firm and not negotiable. We cannot accept submissions by e-mail or fax. Authors will receive confirmation of receipt of their abstracts or papers, including an ID number, shortly after submission. We will contact authors again only if problems are encountered with papers.

To avoid last minutes network problems, authors are strongly encouraged to create their EDAS submission system user accounts (if you don’t already have one) and register their submission (the paper’s author(s), title and abstract) well in advance of the deadline.

Camera-Ready Instructions

The camera-ready deadline is 1st April 2016 (AoE time).

When preparing the camera-ready version, please take reviewer comments into account, such as correcting typos, improving the clarity of the paper, adding relevant references, and so forth. PLEASE pay attention to the following:

  1. Make sure that your paper follows ACM-ICPS formatting guidelines.
  2. Include author names and other identifying information that was excluded from your original submission.
  3. Double-check the paper number of pages.
  4. Check the paper and references for typos and capitalization errors (e.g., "bayesian" should be "Bayesian")

ACM will send rights management emails directly to authors. Since these rights management emails are sent from an automated system, there is a chance that emails sent will wind up in SPAM folders. Please make sure that you set email SPAM settings to allow emails from "rightsreview@acm.org".
