practitioners: including senior scientists from IBM (USA), NIH, and
academia. Topical panel discussions will include, security, ABET
Accreditation issues, data mining, and others.


April 11, 2016:    Submission of full papers (max 7 pages)
                   (Authors who have already submitted papers before March 22,
                   will receive decisions and status reports by April 17.)
April 25, 2016:    Notification of acceptance (+/- two days)
May 10, 2016:      Final papers + Copyright + Registration
July 25-28, 2016:  The 2016 World Congress in Computer Science,
                   Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing
                   (including all affiliated federated conferences).


You are invited to submit a paper for consideration. All accepted papers
will be published in printed conference books/proceedings (each with a
unique international ISBN number) and will also be made available online.
The proceedings will be indexed in science citation databases that track
citation frequency/data. All proceedings are approved for inclusion into
EBSCO, one of the largest subject index systems. ACM Digital Library is
also including the titles into its database as well as ProQuest indexing
databases and others.

In addition, like prior years, extended versions of selected papers
(about 40%) will appear in journals and 15 edited research books;
publishers include, Springer, Elsevier, BMC, and others). Each book in
each series will be subject to Elsevier and Springer science indexing
products (which includes: Scopus, SCI Compendex, Engineering Village,
EMBASE, and others). See the web link below for a small subset of such
publications: (some of these books and journal special issues have
already received the top 25% downloads in their respective fields and/or
identified as "Highly Accessed" by publishers and/or science citation
index trackers.)

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them
to the evaluation web site - please refer to individual conference url
for instructions.

The first page of the paper should include the followings:
   - Title of the paper
   - Name, affiliation, postal address, and email address of each author
     (identify the name of the Contact Author)
   - Abstract (between 100 and 120 words)
   - A maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the work
     described in the paper
   - Write the type of the submission as "Regular Research Paper",
     "Short Research Paper", or "Extended Abstract/Poster Paper".
   - The actual text of the paper can start from the first page (space

Type of Submissions/Papers:

  - Full/Regular Research Papers (maximum of 7 pages):
    Regular Research Papers should provide detail original research
    contributions. They must report new research results that represent
    a contribution to the field; sufficient details and support for
    the results and conclusions should also be provided. The work
    presented in regular papers are expected to be at a stage of maturity
    that with some additional work can be published as journal papers.

  - Short Research Papers (maximum of 4 pages):
    Short Research Papers report on ongoing research projects. They
    should provide overall research methodologies with some results.
    The work presented in short papers are expected to be at a stage
    of maturity that with some additional work can be published as
    regular papers.

  - Extended Abstract/Poster Papers (maximum of 2 pages):
    Poster papers report on ongoing research projects that are still in
    their infancy (i.e., at very early stages). Such papers tend to
    provide research methodologies without yet concrete results.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for
originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In cases of
contradictory recommendations, a member of the conference program
committee would be charged to make the final decision (accept/reject);
often, this would involve seeking help from additional referees. Papers
whose authors include a member of the conference program committee will
be evaluated using the double-blinded review process. (Essay/philosophical
papers will not be refereed but may be considered for discussion/panels).


The Congress will be composed of research presentations, keynote
lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions, and
poster presentations. In recent past, keynote/tutorial/panel speakers
have included: Prof. David A. Patterson (pioneer, architecture, U. of
California, Berkeley), Dr. K. Eric Drexler (known as Father of
Nanotechnology), Prof. John H. Holland (known as Father of Genetic
Algorithms; U. of Michigan), Prof. Ian Foster (known as Father of

An important mission of The Congress is "Providing a unique platform
for a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars,
researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress
makes concerted effort to reach out to participants affiliated with
diverse entities (such as: universities, institutions, corporations,
government agencies, and research centers/labs) from all over the
world. The congress also attempts to connect participants from
institutions that have teaching as their main mission with those who
are affiliated with institutions that have research as their main
mission. The congress uses a quota system to achieve its institution
and geography diversity objectives." 746528


As of January 5, 2016, papers published in the conference proceedings
that have been held as part of this congress, have received 28,380
citations (includes 3,346 self-citations). Citation data is obtained
from Microsoft Academic Search. The citation data does not even
include more than 17,000 other citations to papers in conferences
whose first offerings were initiated by this congress (such as:
FUSION, ICWS, ICMLA, and others).
