The 11th International Conference on Contemporary Computing (IC3 2018)

August 2-4, 2018

Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, NOIDA, India

The International Conference on Contemporary Computing is jointly organized every year since 2008 by the Jaypee Institute of Information Technology, Noida, India and the University of Florida, Gainesville, USA. It focuses on topics that are of contemporary interest to computer and computational scientists and engineers. IC3-2018 will bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, industry and government to deliberate upon the algorithmic, systemic, applied, and educational aspects of contemporary computing. The conference is held in NOIDA (outskirts of New Delhi), India, and typically features multiple eminent keynote speakers, and presentation of more than 100 peer reviewed papers and exhibits.

Accepted papers, only when presented in the Conference by registered authors, will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore & From 2009 onwards, the IC3 proceedings are indexed by DBLP, SCOPUS, and Google Scholar. According to Google Scholar, IC3′s h5 index = 11 and h5 median = 18. The publishers of the previous proceedings are – IEEE Xplore, USA (2013-2016), CCISSpringer, Germany (2009-2012), and McMillan, India (2008).

Paper Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that demonstrate original unpublished research. Papers are limited to 6 single spaced pages. Please see the conference website for paper submission procedures and detailed guidelines. Authors are advised to ensure that their papers free of intentional as well as unintentional plagiarism. All submitted papers will be checked for the similarity score with the published literature using iThenticate services by EDAS. All papers with similarity score of more than 20 are likely to be rejected without review. Other papers will be peer reviewed on the basis of their clarity, originality, relevance and significance.
