Call For Papers

Inspired by the success of the first 1st edition of International Conference on Big Data and Cybersecurity Intelligence (BDSCIntell'2018), we are pleased to announce the second edition of BDCSIntell’2019 which will be hosted in Beirut, Lebanon on 12-14 December. The conference is organized by Lebanese University, Lebanon and Versailles Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines - Université Paris-Saclay (UVSQ), France.

BDCSIntell’2019 is a pioneering conference in Lebanon aiming at accelerating research and innovation in the field of Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, and Cybersecurity. The main theme of this edition is to enhance awareness of the revolutionary changes and challenges that have been leading by cutting-edge technologies, mainly the AI, data science, and internet of things (IoT). Since AI is driving a new wave of smart solutions for industries of all scales, BDCSIntell’2019 will give a special focus on how artificial intelligence will bring changes in industries and its social, economic, and ethical impacts.

BDSCIntell'2019 brings experts from all the key areas and also related areas such as Internet Of Things (IoT) areas and provide them an opportunity to share their innovations for designing and developing next-generation smart and secured solutions. It offers extensive opportunities for the researcher to present their scientific contributions to renowned scientists from all over the world. The industry experts in Lebanon will receive a unique opportunity to learn about the applicability and impact of next-generation technologies used in various fields such as banks, telecommunication, government, etc.

BDCSIntell’2019 will assemble a line of renowned speakers who will deliver their innovative thoughts to tackle challenges and build a better world by leveraging the power of advanced technologies.
