Publication & Indexing

by admin last modified Dec 29, 2017 02:29 PM

The proceedings will be published in printed conference books (ISBN), imprinted by the American Council on Science and Education, and distributed/published by CSREA (Computer Science Research, Education, and Applications Press). The printed proceedings/books will be available for distribution on site at the conference.

The proceedings will be made available online. For The 2017 Proceedings Click Here

The books will be indexed in science databases, including EBSCO (, one of the largest subject index systems, and others. ACM Digital Library is also including the titles into its database ( as well as ProQuest indexing database and others.


In addition to the above, we have arranged two new book series (multiple books in each series); one with Elsevier publishers (Emerging Trends in Computer Science and Applied Computing) and another with Springer publishers (Transactions of Computational Science and Computational Intelligence). After the conference (the process may take 12 to 18 months), a significant number of authors of accepted papers of our congress, will be given the opportunity to submit the extended version of their papers for publication consideration in these books. We anticipate having between 10 and 15 books a year in each of these book series projects. 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).

Citation Data



The books listed below include a very small subset of 94 books published based on this congress. These books mostly include the extended versions of papers published in our congress proceedings. Note that many of these books have received the top 25% downloads in their respective fields and many individual
papers have been identified as "Highly Accessed" by their respective publishers. Almost all books arranged by the congress (thanks to the members of the program committee and also the authors) have been published in multiple editions due to high demand by the research community and also by WorldCat member libraries worldwide.

Advances in Computational Biology (Springer)
13 editions published; held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide.
