INVITATION:
 
   You are invited to submit a paper for consideration. All accepted papers
   will be published by IEEE CPS (refer to ieeexplore.ieee.org for previous
   years' IEEE Xplore inclusion) in the proceedings of The 2018 International
   Conference on Computational Science and Computational Intelligence (CSCI).
   Extended versions of selected papers of the conference will also appear
   in journals and edited research books (Springer, Elsevier, BMC, ...) The
   published proceedings can be accessed via IEEE CPS and other Digital
   libraries.
 
   CSCI'18 International Conference is composed of a number of symposiums,
   sessions, workshops, posters and panel discussions; all will be held
   simultaneously, same location and dates: December 13-15, 2018.
 
 
SCOPE AND LIST OF TOPICS:
 
   The 2018 CSCI International Conference invites paper submissions from
   diverse communities, including researchers from: universities,
   corporations, government agencies, and standardization bodies. Papers
   are sought that address solutions to problems in all areas of
   computational science and computational intelligence.
 
   Computational Science is the study of addressing problems that are
   impossible to solve (or difficult to solve) without computers. The
   field is interdisciplinary by nature and includes the use of advanced
   computing capabilities to understand and solve complex problems. In
   short, Computational Science is the science of using computers to do
   science. Computational Intelligence is the study of computational
   methods in ways that exhibit intelligence. These methods adapt to
   changing environments and changing goals.
 
   Considering the above broad outline, the International Conference on
   Computational Science and Computational Intelligence (CSCI'18) is
   composed of the following research and technical tracks:
 
   - Computational Science (CSCI-ISCS)
   - Computational Intelligence (CSCI-ISCI)
   - Cyber Warfare, Cyber Defense, & Cyber Security (CSCI-ISCW)
   - Signal & Image Processing, Computer Vision & Pattern
     Recognition (CSCI-ISPC)
   - Smart Cities and Smart Mobility (CSCI-ISSC)
   - Education (CSCI-ISED) - includes accreditation, such as ABET
   - Health Informatics and Medical Systems (CSCI-ISHI)
   - Mobile Computing, Wireless Networks, & Security (CSCI-ISMC)
   - Software Engineering (CSCI-ISSE)
   - Internet of Things & Internet of Everything (CSCI-ISOT)
   - Big Data and Data Science (CSCI-ISBD)
   - Artificial Intelligence (CSCI-ISAI)
   - Social Network Analysis, Social Media, & Mining (CSCI-ISNA)
   - Cloud Computing and Data Centers (CSCI-ISCC)
   - Computational Biology (CSCI-ISCB)
   - Parallel & Distributed Computing (CSCI-ISPD)
 
   For detailed topical list for each track, refer to:
 
 
INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMISSION OF PAPERS FOR EVALUATION:
 
   All accepted papers will be published by IEEE CPS:
   in the proceedings of The 2018 International Conference on
   Computational Science and Computational Intelligence (CSCI'18).
 
   Since its inception, CSCI proceedings have always been approved for
   inclusion into IEEE Xplore indexation/digital-library/science citation
   index databases (including all Short Research Papers as well as
   Poster Papers). IEEE Xplore: https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/
 
   Authors of accepted papers must agree with the standard IEEE CPS
   statement in reference to Copyrights (Intellectual Property Rights):
   and Policy on Electronic Dissemination:
 
   Papers should be typeset by using the general typesetting
   instructions available at:
   (i.e., use of regular Times New Roman, font size of 10, single line
   spacing, 2-column format). Authors of accepted papers will later
   receive more specific typesetting instructions. All submissions must
   be original (papers must not have been previously published or
   currently being considered by others for publication).
 
   Submissions must be in either MS doc or pdf formats;
   4 pages for Short Research Papers; 2 pages for Poster Papers - the
   number of pages include all figures, tables, and references. The first
   page should include:
 
   - Title of the paper.
   - Name, affiliation, city, country, and email address of each author
     (identify the name of the Contact Author).
   - Abstract (about 100 words).
   - A maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the work

TYPE OF SUBMISSIONS/PAPERS (Late Breaking 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 research papers.
 
  - 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.
 
 
REVIEW PROCESS
 
   Each paper will be peer-reviewed by 2 to 4 peers (except for papers that
   are philosophical in nature - such papers would be considered for panel
   discussions.) Confidentiality of submitted material will be maintained.
   Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, impact, significance,
   quality of research, quality of writing, and contribution to conference
   program and diversity. Papers whose authors include one or more members
   of the program committee will be evaluated using the double-blinded
   review process. Authors whose papers are not selected for publication
   can submit a rebuttal letter; rebuttals will be evaluated by 4 members
   of the Program Committee.
