Sergeyev (Distinguished Professor, Head of Numerical Calculus Laboratory University of Calabria, Rende, Italy and part-time Professor of Lobachevsky State University, Russia); and many other distinguished speakers. The Congress is among the top five largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate to have attendees from about 85 countries and territories.

To get a feeling about the conferences' atmosphere, see:

 An important mission of The Congress is "Providing a unique platform for a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress makes concerted effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities (such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies, and research centers/labs) from all over the world. The congress also attempts to connect participants from institutions that have teaching as their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions that have research as their main mission. The congress uses a quota system to achieve its institution and geography diversity objectives."

One main goal of the congress is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into a coordinated research meeting held in a common place at a common time. This model facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of computer science, computer engineering, and applied computing. The Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary research initiatives; i.e., facilitating increased opportunities for cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines.

The Congress is composed of a number of tracks (joint-conferences, tutorials, sessions, workshops, poster and panel discussions); all will be held simultaneously, same location and dates: July 25-28, 2016. For the complete list of joint conferences, Click Here

In its recent events, the congress had attracted speakers/authors affiliated with over 180 different universities (including many from the top 50 ranked institutions), many major IT corporations (including, Microsoft, Google, SAP, Oracle, Amazon, Yahoo, Samsung, IBM, Ebay, GE, Siemens, and others), government research agencies (NSF, NIH, DoE, AirForce, ...), and national laboratories (including, NASA, ANL, LLNL, Sandia, ORNL, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, Los Alamos National Lab, ...), representatives of investors and venture capitalists as well as teams of Intellectual Property attorneys. We anticipate having between 1,800 and 2,000 participants for the 2016 Congress.

You are invited to submit a paper for consideration. All accepted papers will be published in printed conference books/proceedings (ISBN) and will also be made available online. The proceedings will be indexed in science citation databases that track citation frequency/data for each paper. In addition, like prior years, extended versions of selected papers (about 35%) will appear in journals and edited research books (publishers include: Springer, Elsevier, BMC, and others).
