-- CALL FOR PAPERS - Deadline for submissions (new date): 27 February
2012 --

Lisbon, Portugal, 17 - 19 July 2012
part of the IADIS Multi Conference on Computer Science and Information
(MCCSIS 2012)
Lisbon, Portugal, 17 - 23 July 2012

* Keynote Speaker (confirmed):
Dr. Stephan Lukosch, Associate Professor, Delft University of
Technology, The Netherlands

* Conference background and goals
The IADIS international conference on "Theory and Practice in Modern
Computing" provides a forum for research and developments in the field
of computing foundations and technology. Modern computing comes not only
with efficient concepts and their application, but also it often
addresses networking and mobility topics. Hence, the view in TPMC ranges
from fundamentals like new or improved algorithms to very recent and
modern applications like ubiquitous scenarios or even everyday
computing. Complementary to these technically-oriented contents, TPMC
also shall serve as discussion platform about ethics and social impact
of those technologies. In its main focus, this scientific conference
aims to attract research reports on efficient application and
realization of simple algorithmic methods, new architectures in design
and data structures, new and improved communication protocols, and
synthesis of known computing concepts and approaches.

* Format of the Conference
The conference will comprise of invited talks and oral presentations.
The proceedings of the conference will be published in the form of a
book and CD-ROM with ISBN, and will be available also in the IADIS
Digital Library (accessible on-line).
The conference proceedings will be submitted for indexing to INSPEC, EI
Compendex, Thomson ISI, ISTP and other indexing services.

* Best Papers
Selected authors of best papers will be invited to submit extended
versions of their papers to
selected journals (i.e. IADIS International Journal on Computer Science
and Information Systems (IJCSIS - ISSN: 1646-3692) including journals
from INDERSCIENCE Publishers.

* Types of submissions
Full papers, Short Papers, Reflection Papers, Posters/Demonstrations,
Tutorials, Panels and Doctoral Consortium.
All submissions are subject to a blind refereeing process.
