Event description


Call for Papers

The International Association of Educators and Researchers (IAER), registered CIC (Community Interest Company) in England and Wales, is happy to arrange the First International Conference on Emerging Technologies in Computing (iCETiC ’18) 2018, which will be held from 23rd -24th August, 2018, at London Metropolitan University, London, UK.

The conference will draw together researchers and developers from academia and industry. iCETiC ’18 Proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes of the Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering (LNICST) Series, in cooperation with EAI. 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: 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.

Journal of Database Management (JDM)

Computing and Informatics (formerly: Computers and Artificial Intelligence)

Open Engineering (formerly Central European Journal of Engineering)

Open Computer Science

Annals of Emerging Technologies in Computing (AETiC)

Annals of Networking and Communications Engineering (ANCE)

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 exploring the Greenwich UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Paper Submission

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.
