Call for papers

Computer science and technology have promoted the development of different types of innovation in current society in the last years, and in different sectors such as industry, businness, health and education.

The 2nd International Conference on Technologies and Innovation (CITI2016) aims to become an international framework and meeting point for professionals who are preferently devoted to research, development, innovation and university teaching, within the field of computer science and technology applied to any important field of innovation.

CITI2016 has been organized as a knowledge-exchange conference formed by several plenary talks and contributions about current innovative technology. These proposals deal with the most important aspects and future prospects from an academic, innovative and scientific perspective.

The goal of the conference is the feasibility of investigating advanced and innovative methods and techniques and their application in different domains in the field of Computer Science and Information Systems that represent an innovation in the current society.


The purpose of this conference is to collect innovative and high-quality research contributions regarding the role played by Computer Science technologies in the innovation in the current society. This conference aims to explore the application of these technologies by soliciting original scientific contributions in the form of theoretical and experimental research and case studies.

Submitted papers should follow the four main themes proposed for the Conference (the topics proposed were not intended as restrictive):

  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Software Engineering
  • Databases
  • Cloud Computing

The specific objectives of the conference can be summarized as the following:

  • Creating a collection of theoretical, real-world and original research works in the field of Computer Science with high impact and innovation on the current society.
  • Going beyond the state-of-the-art in the field of Computer Science.
  • Publishing successful applications and use cases of new approaches, applications, methods, techniques for developing advanced Computer Science technologies and their application in different fields
  • Provide an appropriate dissemination venue from both academia and industrial communities. The present conference aims then at helping to communicate and disseminate relevant recent research on Computer Science.

Conference important dates

  • Paper submission deadline: 1st July 2016
  • Acceptance notification: 20th August 2016
  • Paper registration: 5th September 2016
  • Camera ready: 5th September 2016

Submission procedure

The papers must contain original, relevant and previously unpublished sound research results related to any of the topics of the conference. It is planned to publish the proceedings with Springer in their Communications in Computer and Information Science series ISSN:1865-0929 (final approval pending).

Authors should prepare their manuscripts of 12 pages (Springer formatting guidelines, including figures and references.

Submitting a paper implies that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the conference. Submissions will be peer reviewed by at least three members of the international program committee based on relevance, originality, significance, quality and clarity. Accepted papers will be given guidelines for preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance.

Authors of accepted submissions will be asked to give an approx. 20 minutes presentation of their research work. Presentations should include research results, interesting research questions, and open issues to be discussed during the conference.

Each accepted paper must have a corresponding registered author to be included in the proceedings. Papers that do not have an associated registered author will not be included in the proceedings.We cannot warrant the paper to appear in the proceedings if registration is not done within time limits.

Confirmed Special Issues in journals

The authors of the best selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version for publication in international journals indexed by ISI/SCI, SCOPUS and/or DBLP, among others.

We are pleased to announce that The Journal of Information Technology Research (JITR) ISSN: 1938-7857 has confirmed an Special Issue for extended versions of the best selected papers in CITI 2016.
