ETT-CASCON 2015 : Emerging Technologies Track (ETT) - Annual International Conference on Computer Science and Software Engineering (CASCON)
Call For Papers
Emerging Technologies Track (ETT) at CASCON 2015
Call for Position Papers
Emerging technologies, including wearable devices, social and cloud computing, big data analytics,
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), and Web of Things (WoT), promise to fundamentally transform
the information technology landscape. The convergence of these technologies offer amazing opportunities
for advanced and innovative solutions in many industries. Major research efforts are under way to
combine emerging technologies to solve critical problems in domains such as health care, finance,
manufacturing, agriculture, 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 computing technology and applications.
• To encourage 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 and novel 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 early results, bringing emerging technologies and
new research directions to solve real world problems. Preliminary experiments that provide initial
support for the proposed ideas are welcome.
A submission must be an original, unpublished work of at most four pages in the ACM proceedings format,
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates. The papers must be submitted electronically
as PDF files via the EasyChair Conference System. Accepted position papers will be included in the
conference proceedings published by CASCON and archived in the ACM Digital Library.
