The 7th International Conference on Advances in Computing, Communications and Informatics (ICACCI 2018)

The 7th International Conference on Advances in Computing, Communications and Informatics (ICACCI 2018)

September 19-22, 2018

Bangalore, India

The scope of International Conference on Advances in Computing, Communications and Informatics (ICACCI) is to provide an international forum for the exchange of ideas among interested researchers, students, developers, and practitioners in the areas of computing, communications, and informatics. Since its inauguration in 2012, ICACCI has developed into a reputable conference and is well attended by experts in all aspects related to computing and information from all over the world. The Conference is indexed by Scopus, DBLP and Google Scholar since 2012 and by Ei Compendex and Web of Science (THOMSON REUTERS Conference Proceedings Citation Index) since 2013.  Google scholar metrics shows h5-index=18 and h5-median=23 for ICACCI.
ICACCI’18 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE and IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc). The Conference is technically supported by four techncial committees of IEEE ComSoc: Communications Switching and Routing Technical Committee, Big Data Techncial Committee, Social Networks Techncial Committee and Information Infrastructure & Networking Technical Committee. ICACCI’18 is also technically supported by IEEE Photonics Society Bangalore Chapter.
ICACCI’18 addresses key topics and issues related to all aspects of computing, communications and informatics. Material is presented in a program of technical sessions, panel discussions, symposiums, tutorials, posters, demos, exhibits, workshops, doctoral consortium, lightning talks and plenary/keynote talks. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
The seventh edition will be held at PES Institute of Technology, South Campus, Bangalore, Karnataka, India. PES, located in Bangalore, India is one of the country’s leading teaching and research universities. Bangalore, officially known as Bengaluru is the capital of the Indian state of Karnataka. Bangalore is popularly known as the ‘Silicon Valley’ of India for being a major IT hub of the nation.
