Call for Papers: ICIT 2016

Goal and Scope

International Conference on Information Technology (ICIT) is a premier international forum for sharing high quality research in the areas of Information Technology. ICIT-2016 is being organized by Orissa Information Technology Society in collaboration with IEEE and IIIT Bhubaneshwar. Researchers, developers, and practitioners from academia and industry are invited to present their research findings on various topics of IT and its applications.

ICIT encourages submissions in all the areas of information technology. However, the papers in the following tracks will be the primary focus of ICIT-2016. The submissions in each track could be on, but not limited to, the following topics:

DRM: Information Security, Content Protection, and Digital Rights Management
Watermarking, Steganography, Cryptography, Biometrics, Digital Libraries, Network Security, Computer Security, Ontologies and Reasoning, Applications of Semantic Web and Linked Data, Semantic Web Architecture Social Semantic Web.
TWA: Text and Web-data Analytics
Information retrieval, question answering, sentiment analysis, collaborative filtering and ontologies, Visual Data Mining, Privacy Sensitive Data Mining, Graph Data mining, Machine Learning, Mining Spatial and Temporal Data, Metadata and Meta modeling especially focused in the domains of social networks, social media including blogs and online collaborative environments.
ICT: Modern Trends in Information and Computing Technology
Big Data, Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, Bio-Informatics, Information Science including Multi-Agent Systems and Intelligent Systems, high performance computing, low power/energy-aware computing, Computer-Aided Design (CAD) for Behavioral/High-Level Synthesis and Optimization, High-level synthesis algorithms and methodology, IP core design, algorithms for IP core protection, algorithms for security aware behavioural synthesis, fault aware computing, CAD algorithms for smart devices, algorithm for biometric security.
SPD: Sequential, Parallel and Distributed Computing
Analysis and Design of exact and approximation algorithms, Parallel and Distributed Computing, Load balancing and partitioning, Cloud Computing, Parallel and Distributed algorithms in Data Mining and Computational Biology. Multi-cores, memory hierarchy, multiprocessor synchronization and debugging, concurrent programming, OS virtualization modeling and simulation, load balancing and partitioning, compiler techniques.
CNP: Communication Networks and Protocols
Broadband Multimedia Communications, Wireless Ad hoc/ Sensor/IoT Networks, Wireless and Mobile Communications, Emerging Information Technology Networks, Vehicular ad-hoc network, Optical Fiber Network, SDN, Peer-to-peer, overlay, and content distribution networks, Energy- and power-aware communication, cognitive radio Networks.
BMI: Biomedical Informatics
Information and Computing Technologies topics mentioned in other tracks, but with specific application to Biomedical Informatics (Translational Bioinformatics and Clinical Informatics) will be considered in this track; additional topics of interest are the application of Crowdsourcing and Open Science Development to Biomedical Informatics.

All papers should be full papers, and papers may belong to more than one category. Note that papers from any research area can fall into any of these categories, as the categories are constructed surrounding methodological approaches, not research topics (e.g., one could write an analytical paper on a new analysis technique, an empirical paper that compares a broad range of such techniques, a technological paper that makes an analysis technique practically feasible and available, or a perspectives paper that reviews the state of the art and lays out a roadmap of analysis techniques for the future).


All submissions that meet the submission criteria (see below) and fit the scope of the conference will be reviewed by three members of the program committee. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of soundness, importance of contribution, originality, quality of presentation, appropriate comparison to related work, and convincing evaluation of the proposed approach. Submissions that are not in compliance with the required submission format or that are out of the scope of the conference will be rejected without being reviewed. Submitted papers must comply with IEEE plagiarism policy and procedures. Papers submitted to ICIT 2016 must not have been published elsewhere and must not be under review or submitted for review elsewhere while under consideration for ICIT 2016.

Publication and Presentation

Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Please review the ICIT 2016 Publication Requirements for more details. Presentation details will follow notifications of acceptance.

How to Submit

Submissions must be formatted according to the ICIT 2016 Formatting Instructions. Papers must not exceed 6 pages. All submissions must be in PDF and must be submitted online by the deadline via the ICIT 2016 EasyChair conference management system.
