The Second International Conference on Information Science and Technology (ICIST 2012) will be held in Wuhan, China during March 23-25, 2012, as a sequel to ICIST 2011 (Nanjing). ICIST 2012 aims to provide a high-level international forum for scientists, engineers, and educators to present the state of the art of research and applications of information science and technology. The conference will feature plenary speeches given by world renowned scholars, regular sessions with broad coverage, and special sessions focusing on popular topics. The ICIST 2012 Proceedings (IEEE catalog number: CFP1242M-CDR and ISBN: 978-1-61284-0344-7) will be indexed by EI. In addition, selected high-quality papers would be published in special issues of SCI-journals.
Prospective authors are invited to contribute high-quality papers to ICIST 2012. In addition, proposals for special sessions within the technical scopes of the conference are solicited. Special sessions, to be organized by internationally recognized experts, aim to bring together researchers in special focused topics. Papers submitted for special sessions are to be peer-reviewed with the same criteria used for the contributed papers. Researchers interested in organizing special sessions are invited to submit formal proposals to ICIST 2012. A special session proposal should include the session title, a brief description of the scope and motivation, names, contact information and brief biographical information on the organizers.
