Call For Papers


The 3rd International Conference on IT Convergence and Security (ICITCS 2013) will be held in December 16 - 18, 2013, Macau

As information technology field has been grown progressively and rapidly since it entered 21st century, it has changed our lives more conveniently than we have ever speculated. Recently in all fields of the industry, heterogeneous technologies have converged with information technology resulting in a new paradigm, information convergence. In the process of information convergence, the latest issues in the structure of data, system, network, and infrastructure have become the most challenging task. The goal of this conference is to discover a new progressive technology by enhancing the previous technologies and to solve the technical problems that may have occurred in the process of converging technology in various fields of industry.

At ICITCS 2013, IT experts, researchers, and practitioners from each field will be invited to share ideas and research technologies; moreover they will be encouraged to cooperate with each other to overcome the confronted technical problems. As a result, this conference will become a place of knowledge with a variety of effects created on every fields related to information convergence and security.

The conference seeks contributions presenting novel research results in all aspects of IT Convergence and Security. Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed and the accepted papers and posters will be published in IEEE which is indexed by ISI and Scopus. Furthermore, the selected papers will be published in the special issues of prestigious international journals after further revision.


Deadline for submission: Extended to October 14, 2013
