The aim of this Thematic Track is to provide a platform for exchange of ideas between early-stage researchers, in Computer Science and Information Systems, PhD students in particular. Furthermore, it will provide all participants an opportunity to get feedback on their studies from experienced members of the IT research community. Therefore, submission of research proposals with limited preliminary results is strongly encouraged.
Besides receiving specific advice for their contributions all participants will be invited to attend plenary lectures on conducting high-quality research studies, excellence in scientific writing and issues related to intellectual property in IT research. Authors of the two most outstanding submissions will have a possibility to present their papers in a form of short plenary lecture.
We invite the submission of papers on all aspects of Information Technology including, but not limited to:
- Automatic Control and Robotics
- Cloud, GPU and Parallel Computing
- Cognitive Science
- Computer Networks
- Computational Intelligence
- Data Mining and Data Visualization
- Database Management Systems
- Expert Systems
- Image Processing and Computer Animation
- Information Theory
- Machine Learning
- Natural Language Processing
- Numerical Analysis
- Operating Systems
- Pattern Recognition
- Scientific Computing
- Software Engineering
Selected extended papers, after additional review, will be published in special issues of journals, e.g. Journal of Automation, Mobile Robotics and Intelligent Systems.
