CSCI'18 International Conference is composed of a number of symposiums, sessions, workshops, posters and panel discussions; all will be held simultaneously, same location and dates: December 13-15, 2018.

SCOPE AND LIST OF TOPICS:

The 2018 CSCI International Conference invites paper submissions from diverse communities, including researchers from: universities, corporations, government agencies, and standardization bodies. Papers are sought that address solutions to problems in all areas of computational science and computational intelligence.

Computational Science is the study of addressing problems that are impossible to solve (or difficult to solve) without computers. The field is interdisciplinary by nature and includes the use of advanced computing capabilities to understand and solve complex problems. In short, Computational Science is the science of using computers to do science. Computational Intelligence is the study of computational methods in ways that exhibit intelligence. These methods adapt to changing environments and changing goals.

Considering the above broad outline, the International Conference on Computational Science and Computational Intelligence (CSCI'18) is composed of the following research and technical tracks:

- Computational Science (CSCI-ISCS)
- Computational Intelligence (CSCI-ISCI)
- Cyber Warfare, Cyber Defense, & Cyber Security (CSCI-ISCW)
- Signal & Image Processing, Computer Vision & Pattern Recognition (CSCI-ISPC)
- Smart Cities and Smart Mobility (CSCI-ISSC)
- Education (CSCI-ISED) - includes accreditation, such as ABET
- Health Informatics and Medical Systems (CSCI-ISHI)
- Mobile Computing, Wireless Networks, & Security (CSCI-ISMC)
- Software Engineering (CSCI-ISSE)
- Internet of Things & Internet of Everything (CSCI-ISOT)
- Big Data and Data Science (CSCI-ISBD)
- Artificial Intelligence (CSCI-ISAI)
- Social Network Analysis, Social Media, & Mining (CSCI-ISNA)
- Cloud Computing and Data Centers (CSCI-ISCC)
- Computational Biology (CSCI-ISCB)
- Parallel & Distributed Computing (CSCI-ISPD)

https://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html (i.e., use of regular Times New Roman, font size of 10, single line spacing, 2-column format). Authors of accepted papers will later receive more specific typesetting instructions. All submissions must be original (papers must not have been previously published or currently being considered by others for publication).

Submissions must be in either MS doc or pdf formats (6 pages for Regular Research Papers; 4 pages for Short Papers; 2 pages for Poster Papers - the number of pages include all figures, tables, and references). The first page should include:

- Title of the paper.

TYPE OF SUBMISSIONS/PAPERS:

- Full/Regular Research Papers (maximum of 6 pages):
Regular Research Papers should provide detail original research contributions. They must report new research results that represent a contribution to the field; sufficient details and support for the results and conclusions should also be provided. The work presented in regular papers are expected to be at a stage of maturity that with some additional work can be published as journal papers.

- Short Papers (maximum of 4 pages):
Short papers report on ongoing research projects. They should provide overall research methodologies with some results. The work presented in short papers are expected to be at a stage of maturity that with some additional work can be published as regular papers.

- Poster Papers (maximum of 2 pages):
Poster papers report on ongoing research projects that are still in their infancy (i.e., at very early stages). Such papers tend to provide research methodologies without yet concrete results.

REVIEW PROCESS:

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by 2 to 4 peers (except for papers that are philosophical in nature - such papers would be considered for panel discussions.) Confidentiality of submitted material will be maintained. Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, impact, significance, quality of research, quality of writing, and contribution to conference program and diversity. Papers whose authors include one or more members of the program committee will be evaluated using the double-blinded review process. Authors whose papers are not selected for publication can submit a rebuttal letter; rebuttals will be evaluated by 4 members of the Program Committee.
