Call For Papers

FutureTech 2014 Call for Papers (Springer LNEE indexed by EI and SCOPUS)
The 9th FTRA International Conference on
Future Information Technology (FutureTech 2014)

Zhangjiajie, China, May 29-31, 2014

Organized by FTRA and KITCS
Published by Springer-LNEE (EI and SCOPUS Index)
******* Submission due was finally extended to Dec. 30, 2013 ********

Future technology information technology would stand for all of
continuously evolving and converging information technologies, including
digital convergence, multimedia convergence, intelligent applications,
embedded systems, mobile and wireless communications, bio-inspired
computing, grid and cloud computing, semantic web, user experience and
HCI, security and trust computing and so on, for satisfying our
ever-changing needs.
In past twenty five years or so, Information Technology (IT) influenced
and changed every aspect of our lives and our cultures. Without various
IT-based applications, we would find it difficult to keep information
stored securely, to process information efficiently, and to communicate
information conveniently. In the future world, IT will play a very
important role in convergence of computing, communication, and all other
computational sciences and application and IT also will influence the
future world's various areas, including science, engineering, industry,
business, law, politics, culture, medicine, and so on.
Our conference is intended to foster the dissemination of
state-of-the-art research in all future IT areas, including their
models, services, and novel applications associated with their utilization.

FutureTech 2014 is the next edition of FutureTech 2013(Gwangju, Korea), FutureTech 2012(Vancouver, Canada), FutureTech 2011(Loutraki, Greece), FutureTech 2010 (Busan, Korea,
