Submission Guidelines:

Review manuscripts should describe original work and should be no more than 7 pages in the IEEE double column proceedings format including tables, figures and references. Download manuscript templates for IEEE conference proceedings <<here>>. Note that accepted papers up to 6 pages will be published with no additional charge. Exceeding pages will be charged an additional fee.  Papers exceeding 7 pages will not be accepted at EDAS. Extended versions of selected best papers will be recommended for publication in a special issue of a prestigious international journal. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to register to the conference and present the paper. Only registered and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings.

All papers for ISCC 2018 should be submitted via EDAS (Link coming soon…).

Accepted papers will be included in the ISCC 2018 Proceedings and will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore. The IEEE ISCC Proceedings have been indexed in the past by ISI, dblp and Scopus. This makes the IEEE ISCC conference one of the publication venues with very high visibility and impact in both Computer and Communications areas.

Important dates:

  • Paper submission deadline: Jan 22, 2018
  • Notification of paper acceptance: Mar 19, 2018
  • Submission of camera-ready papers due: Apr 2, 2018

Technical Program Co-Chairs:

  • Antonio Loureiro, Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil
  • Shie-Yuan Wang, National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan

Welcome to IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications 2018

The first IEEE Symposium on Computers and Communications (ISCC) was held in 1995 in response to the growing interaction between the fields of computers and communications. In 2018 lemma is Computers and Communications on the Fog, following new challenges related to big data, computing, and communications performance.

ISCC takes place annually, usually in the Mediterranean region, in locations such as Egypt, Greece, France, Tunisia, Portugal, Spain, Morocco, and Italy. In 2018, the Symposium is going to happen on the other side of the Atlantic, in the beautiful Brazilian north-east coast city of Natal.

ISCC sessions will include presentations on new research results and tutorials. Papers describing original work are invited in any of the computer and communications areas that the Call for Papers considers. Accepted papers will be included in the ISCC 2018 Conference Proceedings, which will be subject to independent IEEE peer-review procedures for quality, and may be eligible for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library. Merit, relevance, and originality will guide paper acceptance. Best Paper Award and Best Student Paper Awards will be presented.

Keep track of the IEEE ISCC 2018 homepage to be aware of the news.
