Springer iCETiC 2021 : 4th International Conference on Emerging Technologies in Computing 2021
Call For Papers
After successfully organising the third conference of this series, International Association of Educators and Researchers (IAER), registered CIC (Community Interest Company) in England and Wales, is happy to arrange the Fourth International Conference on Emerging Technologies in Computing (iCETiC ’21) 2021, which will be held from 18th - 19th August 2021, at London Metropolitan University, London, UK.
iCETiC ’21 is technically co-sponsored by EAI and the Chester and North wales Branch of the British Computer Society. However, iCETiC ’20 Proceedings will be published in the Springer Nature Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering (LNICST) Series, in cooperation with EAI.
LNICST series is indexed in WoS/ISI as well as in Scopus having 2019 CiteScore: 0.5 and SNIP 0.211; SJR 2019: 0.151 (Q4).
The conference will draw together researchers and developers from academia and industry. For inclusion in the Springer-Verlag LNICST series, the papers must adhere to Springer’s Guidelines for Authors of Proceedings, instructions for which can be found at: ftp://ftp.springernature.com/cs-proceeding/svproc/guidelines/Springer_Guidelines_for_Authors_of_Proceedings.pdf. The easiest way to do this is to download and use the MS Word 2003 Proceedings template. Selected papers for consideration for further publication from the conference may be recommended for the following journals, as shown in the table below. This will be after they have been asked to be substantially extended and enhanced. However, the journals’ respective Editor-in-Chief and the members of the Executive Board will make the final decision about the inclusion of the papers. Furthermore, invited extended papers will be published in an edited book by Springer-Verlag.
1. Sensors, published by MDPI, indexed in ISI/WoS (IF 2.677), Scopus, ACM DL etc.
2. Journal of Database Management (JDM), published by IGI Global, indexed in ISI/WoS (IF 0.462), Scopus, ACM DL, etc.
3. Computing and Informatics, published by IISAS, Indexed in ISI/WoS (IF 0.524), Scopus, DBLP, etc.

5. Open Computer Science, published by De Gruyter, indexed in ISI/WoS, Scopus, EBSCO, etc.
6. Annals of Emerging Technologies in Computing (AETiC), http://aetic.theiaer.org, Indexed in Scopus, DOAJ etc.
There will be a range of events from keynote addresses, technical and poster sessions, workshops and tutorials. The formal sessions will be supplemented by an excellent social programme.
Work in progress, research papers, survey papers, application and theoretical papers, poster presentations and position papers for the workshop are all welcome.
Full papers, adhering to the Springer-Verlag LNICST paper formatting (Read Submit Paper), should be submitted using the Easychair Conference Management System.
