    INVITATION:

This announcement is ONLY for those who MISSED the opportunity to submit
their papers in response to earlier "Call For Papers". Therefore,
authors who have ALREADY submitted papers in response to earlier "Call
For Papers" should IGNORE this announcement. (Those who have been
notified that their papers have been accepted, should still follow the
instructions that were emailed to them; including meeting the deadlines
mentioned in the notifications that were sent to them. Those who have not
yet received a notification, will soon receive one).

We anticipate having between 1,000 and 2,000 participants in the Congress.
The congress includes 21 major tracks
( http://americancse.org/events/csce2017/conferences ) composed of: 105
technical, research, and panel sessions as well as a number of keynote
lectures and tutorials; all will be held simultaneously, same location
and dates: July 17-20, 2017. Last year, the Congress had attracted
speakers/authors and participants affiliated with over 176 different
universities (including many from the top 50 ranked institutions), major
IT corporations (including: Microsoft, Google, Apple, SAP, Facebook,
Oracle, Amazon, Yahoo, Samsung, IBM, Ebay, GE, Siemens, Philips, Ericsson,
BAE Systems, Hitachi, NTT, ...), major corporations (including: Exxon
Mobil, Johnson & Johnson, JPMorgan Chase, PetroChina, GlaxoSmithKline,
HSBC, Airbus, Boeing, Hyundai, ...), government research agencies (NSF,
NIH, DoE, AirForce, NSA National Security Agency, ...), US national
laboratories (including, NASA, ANL, LLNL, Sandia, ORNL, Lawrence Berkeley
National Lab, Los Alamos National Lab, National Cancer Institute,
NIST, ...), and a number of Venture Capitalists as well as distinguished
speakers discussing Intellectual Property issues. Last year, 55% of
attendees were from academia, 24% from industry; 20% from government and
funding agencies; and 1% unknown. About half of the attendees were from
outside USA; from 74 nations.

You are invited to submit a "POSITION PAPER", or "ABSTRACT/POSTER PAPER"
for consideration. All accepted papers will be published in printed
conference books/proceedings (with unique international ISBN number)
and will also be made available online. The proceedings will be imprinted
by the American Council on Science and Education, and distributed/published
by CSREA (Computer Science Research, Education, and Applications Press).
In addition, like prior years, extended versions of selected papers (about
40%) of the conference will appear in journals and edited research books
(publishers include: Springer, Elsevier, BMC, and others); some of thes
books and journal special issues have already received the top 25% most
downloads in their respective fields. See the link below for a very small
subset of the books published mostly based on extended versions of the
accepted papers of this congress:
http://americancse.org/events/csce2017/books-journal-special-issues
Each book in each series will be subject to Elsevier and Springer
science indexing products (which includes: Scopus, SCI Compendex,
Engineering Village, EMBASE, and others).

     SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:

In response to this announcement, authors are given the opportunity to
submit their papers for evaluation in one of the following TWO paper
categories:

    1. POSITION PAPERS: enable discussions on emerging topics without the
      experimentation normally present in an academic paper. Commonly,
      such papers will substantiate the opinions or positions put forward
      with evidence from an extensive objective discussion of the topic.
      The maximum number of pages is 4. Please write the following on the
      first page of your submission "name of conference: POSITION PAPER".
      If accepted, The length of the final/Camera-Ready paper will be
      limited to 4 (two-column IEEE style) pages and the author will be
      given the opportunity to present the paper in a formal session.

   2. ABSTRACT/POSTER PAPERS: describe research roadmaps (similar to PhD
      plan or PhD prospectus). The maximum number of pages is 2. Please
      write the following on the first page of your submission "name of
      conference: ABSTRACT/POSTER PAPER". If accepted, The length of the
      final/Camera-Ready paper will be limited to 2 (two-column IEEE
      style) pages and the author will be given the opportunity to
      present the paper in a discussion/poster session.

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them
to the evaluation web site at:  http://american-cse.org/
Submissions must be uploaded by the due date (see IMPORTANT DATES) and
must be in either MS doc or pdf formats. All reasonable typesetting
formats are acceptable (later, the authors of accepted papers will be
asked to follow a particular typesetting format to prepare their final
papers for publication; these formatting instructions appear at:
http://american-cse.org/ and they conform to the two-column IEEE style
format). The first page of the paper should include:
   - Title of the paper
   - Name, affiliation, postal address, and email address of each author
     (identify the name of the Contact Author)
   - Abstract (between 100 and 120 words)
   - A maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the work
     described in the paper
   - Write the type of the submission as  "POSITION PAPERS" or "ABSTRACT/POSTER                     PAPERS".
   - The actual text of the paper can start from the first page (space
     permitting).
   Submissions are to be uploaded to the submission/evaluation web site
   portal at http://american-cse.org/

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for
originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In cases of
contradictory recommendations, a member of the conference program
committee would be charged to make the final decision (accept/reject);
often, this would involve seeking help from additional referees. Papers
whose authors include a member of the conference program committee will
be evaluated using the double-blinded review process. (Essay/philosophical
papers will not be refereed but may be considered for discussion/panels).
