Participants in any event can attend any session of any other event andcan have access to all virtual session associated to the face-to-face sessions. These virtual sessions will be accessible three days prior to the conference, during the conference and up to three weeks after the conference is over. Asynchronous communication will support the written interactions in these virtual sessions.
The submission deadline is * January 6th, 2016 *. To submit your article, please click the respective “submission” link provided at http://www.2016iiisconferences.org/cfp-spring2016.asp . The collocated events indicated in this web page will be held jointly in Orlando, Florida, USA on March 8-11, 2016.
The main conferences of these multi-disciplinary collocated events are the following:
- The 7th International Multi-Conference on Complexity, Informatics and Cybernetics: IMCIC 2016
- The 7th International Conference on Education, Training and Informatics: ICETI 2016
- The 7th International Conference on Society and Information Technologies: ICSIT 2016
- The Symposium on Information and Cyber Security: ICS 2016
- The Symposium on Information Systems and Software Engineering: ISSE 2016
The purpose of collocating events related to different disciplines is to bring together researchers and professionals from different disciplines in order to form a multi-disciplinary forum for inter-disciplinary communication.
The program of the collocated events will include 1) disciplinary presentations, 2) trans-disciplinary or non-disciplinary presentations, 3) participatory workshops and/or panels, and 4) inter-disciplinary presentations by the same authors who are also delivering disciplinary presentations. Presentation for intra-disciplinary communications will also be presented by the same authors for inter-disciplinary communication and the respective authors will be invited to write an associated invited paper for inter-disciplinary readership.
To be able to include inter-disciplinary presentations in the conference program, the International Institute of Informatics and Systemics is providing some financial support for fostering these inter-disciplinary communications. Consequently, the Organizing Committee will invite registered authors of accepted papers to make an additional presentation (with no additional cost) of their disciplinary presentation for inter-disciplinary or non-disciplinary communication, or to present a paper regarding the importance of interdisciplinary research, education and problem solving. These additional presentations might have associated invited papers which would be included in the pre-conference proceedings or in the post-conference volume of the proceedings. Best papers of these inter-disciplinary presnebtaions will also be published in a special issue of the Journal of Systemics, Cybernetics, and Informatics, entitled “Inter-disciplinary communications”.
Details about the following issues have also been included at the URL given above:
- Pre- and post-conference virtual sessions.
- Virtual participation.
- Two-tier reviewing combining double-blind and non-blind methods.
