International Conference on Applied Research in Computer Science and Engineering (ICAR’15)
October 8th and 9th -2015, Université Antonine and Université Saint-Joseph - Lebanon


“The International Conference on Applied Research in Computer Science and Engineering - (ICAR’15)”
Research efforts involving several disciplines in particularly computer science and engineering are going beyond expectations but in many occasions remain at a theoretical level. It goes without saying that one of the primary purposes of research is the application of knowledge to serve the global society. Many companies are learning that in order to further their growth and innovation they need to partner with scientists and researchers to develop proper mechanisms that convey the emerging advances of modern research. With this in mind, ICAR ‘15 aims to bring together scientists of the computer science and engineering disciplines to share and exchange knowledge, experience and results, particularly in applied research that may help meet the needs of local industries and academic institutions.
The ICAR’15 is more than just an international conference, but rather an academic platform, to discuss research and publications among young and talented students, scientists, engineers, and professionals. It offers an opportunity for participants to meet with experts and discuss cutting-edge approaches, insights that address the revolutionary aspects of nowadays technologies.
