ETT-CASCON 2014 : Emerging Technologies Track at CASCON 2014
Call For Papers
Emerging Technologies Track (ETT) at CASCON 2014
Call for Position Papers
Emerging technologies, such as low-cost sensing, wireless and mobile
devices, social and cloud computing platforms, big data analytics,
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Web of Things (WoT), and others
fundamentally transform the information technology (IT) industry. The
confluence and congruence of these technologies offer amazing
opportunities for advancement and innovation. Major research efforts
are under way to provide novel techniques to solve critical problems
by applying emerging technologies in various domains, including health
care, finance, commerce, and energy.
The goals of this Emerging Technologies Track are:
* To provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to share
their visions, innovative ideas, and insights in the general
area of software technology and applications.
* To encourage the research collaboration and discussion,
including early feedback and industrial validation.
The track addresses the same topics of interest as those of the
technical research papers. We invite position papers to describe a
well-defined idea at an early stage. As opposed to regular research
papers, the submissions are not expected to have a solid and complete
evaluation. The submissions should focus on innovative ideas or the
emerging results, bringing the emerging technologies to solve real
world problems and new research directions. Preliminary results
providing initial support for the proposed ideas are welcome.
Submission must be original, unpublished work of no more than four
pages long in 2-column, 10-point font format. The templates can be
found on the CASCON 2014 website. The papers must be submitted
electronically as PDF files via Easychair Conference System
position papers will be included in the conference proceedings
published by CASCON and archived in the ACM digital library.
