INVITATION:

You are invited to submit a paper for consideration. All accepted papers will be published in printed conference books/proceedings (each with a unique international ISBN number) and will also be made available online. The proceedings will be indexed in science citation databases that track citation frequency/data. In addition, like prior years, extended versions of selected papers (about 40%) will appear in journals and edited research books; publishers include, Springer, Elsevier, BMC, and others). See the web link below for a small subset of such publications: (some of these books and journal special issues have already received the top 25% downloads in their respective fields and/or identified as "Highly Accessed" by publishers and/or science citation index trackers.)

http://www.worldacademyofscience.org/worldcomp15/ws/books_journals.html

The Congress is composed of a number of tracks (joint-conferences, tutorials, sessions, workshops, poster and panel discussions); all will be held simultaneously, same location and dates: July 25-28, 2016.

PAPER CATEGORIES

In response to this announcement, authors are given the opportunity to submit their papers for evaluation in one of the following three paper categories:

Late Breaking Papers describe late-breaking/recent developments in the field. The maximum number of pages is 7. Please write the following on the first page of your submission “DMIN - LATE BREAKING PAPER”. If accepted, the length of the final/Camera-Ready paper will be limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages and the author will be given the opportunity to present the paper in a formal session.

Position Papers enable discussions on emerging topics without the experimentation normally present in an academic paper. Commonly, such papers will substantiate the opinions or positions put forward with evidence from an extensive objective discussion of the topic. The maximum number of pages is 4. Please write the following on the first page of your submission “DMIN - POSITION PAPER”. If accepted, the length of the final/Camera-Ready paper will be limited to 4 (two-column IEEE style) pages and the author will be given the opportunity to present the paper in a formal session.

Abstract/Poster Papers describe research roadmaps (similar to PhD plan or PhD prospectus). The maximum number of pages is 2. Please write the following on the first page of your submission “DMIN - ABSTRACT/POSTER PAPER”. If accepted, the length of the final/Camera-Ready paper will be limited to 2 (two-column IEEE style) pages and the author will be given the opportunity to present the paper in a discussion/poster session.

Online Submission of the Draft Paper

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers (see above for paper categories) by uploading them to the evaluation web site.

 

Submissions must be uploaded by May 17, 2016 and must be in pdf format (7 pages for Late Breaking Papers; 4 pages for Position Papers; 2 pages for Abstract/Poster Papers - the number of pages include all figures, tables, and references). For typesetting etc. please have a look at the instructions. Later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to upload their final paper on a different system organized by Worldcomp. Papers must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.

 

If you want to submit your paper to a special session, please select an appropriate 'track' within the paper submission system.

 

Please do not send papers by email! Emailed submissions will be rejected without further notification.

 

Review Process

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by at least two researchers in the topical area. To reflect upon feedback from last year we will extend the constructive feedback given within the review. Please consult the pages for the Review Process for additional Information.

We particularly encourage submissions of industrial applications and case studies from practitioners. To reflect the requirements of an application or project centric case study presentation, these will be subject to different review criteria. In particular, they will not be evaluated using predominantly theoretical research criteria of originality etc., but will take general interest and presentation stronger into consideration.

Conference Proceedings

 

The proceedings will be published in printed conference books (ISBN) and will also be made available online. The printed proceedings/books will be available for distribution on site at the conference. The proceedings will be indexed in science citation databases that track citation frequency/data for each published paper. The proceedings/books of this congress have been evaluated and approved for inclusion into major science citation index databases. In addition, all proceedings are approved for inclusion into EBSCO, one of the largest subject index systems. ACM Digital Library is also including the titles into its database as well as ProQuest indexing database and others.

 

In addition to the above, Worldcomp has arranged two new book series (multiple books in each series); one with Elsevier publishers (Emerging Trends in Computer Science and Applied Computing) and another with Springer publishers (Transactions of Computational Science and Computational Intelligence). After the conference (the process may take 12 to 18 months), a significant number of authors of accepted papers of our congress, will be given the opportunity to submit the extended version of their papers for publication consideration in these books. We anticipate having between 10 and 15 books a year in each of these book series projects. Each book in each series will be subject to Elsevier and Springer science indexing products (which includes: Scopus, www.info.scopus.com; SCI Compendex, Engineering Village,
www.ei.org; EMBASE, www.info.embase.com; and others). A recent and a very small subset of the books (and journal special issues) that have been published based on the extended versions of many of the congress papers, can be found here.

With respect to these book series, DMIN is planning to consider all submissions for publication in an edited book volume to be published by Springer. Details will be published later. 

 

Note that authors who submit papers in response to this announcement, will have their papers evaluated for publication consideration in the Final Edition of the conference proceedings which will go to press soon after the conference (the conference would then make the necessary arrangements to ship the printed proceedings/books to such authors). The Final Edition of the conference proceedings will be identical to earlier edition except for a number of sections/chapters appended to the proceedings/book.

 

GENERAL INFORMATION

 

DMIN is an international conference that serves researchers, scholars, professionals, students, and academicians who are looking to both foster working relationships and gain access to the latest research results.

To get a feeling about the conferences' atmosphere, see some delegates photos available here.

 

An important mission of The Congress is "Providing a unique platform for a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress makes concerted effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities (such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies, and research centers/labs) from all over the world. The congress also attempts to connect participants from institutions that have teaching as their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions that have research as their main mission. The congress uses a quota system to achieve its institution and geography diversity objectives." One main goal of the congress is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into a coordinated research meeting held in a common place at a common time. This model facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of computer science, computer engineering, and applied computing. The Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary research initiatives; ie, facilitating increased opportunities for cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines.

 

TUTORIALS AND INVITED TALKS:
