Following the success of previous ICT Innovations conferences, we are proud to announce the 13th ICT Innovations conference, which will be held in ONLINE from September 27 to September 29, 2021.

ICT Innovations is one of the leading international conferences in the region that serves as a platform for presenting novel ideas and fundamental advances in the fields of computer science and engineering. 


..::ICT INNOVATIONS 2021::.. Aims and Scope

The ICT Innovations conference series has established itself as an international forum for presenting scientific results related to innovative fundamental and applied research in ICT. The conference aims to bring together academics as well as industrial practitioners, to share their most recent research, practical solutions and experiences and to discuss the trends, opportunities and challenges in the field of computer science and engineering.

The conference will consist of regular sessions with technical contributions (regular papers) reviewed and selected by an international program committee, as well as invited talks presented by leading scientists. Different workshops will be held in line with the main conference. The official language of the conference will be English.


..::ICT INNOVATIONS 2021::.. Topics

The focal point for this year’s conference is Digital Transformation.

Digital Transformation is the adoption of digital technology to transform services or businesses, through replacing non-digital or manual processes with digital processes or replacing older digital technology with newer digital technology. Digital solutions enable new types of innovation and creativity, rather than simply enhancing and supporting traditional methods.

In the past challenging year, on average, digital solutions have leapfrogged several years of progress in a matter of months. We are witnessing accelerated transformations in the areas of, just to name a few: e-commerce, software systems, networking, telecommunications, marketing, banking, finance, fin-tech, blockchain and digital leger technologies, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, transportation and delivery, health care and telehealth. Along the way there have been many challenges, but as well innovative solutions. 

Conference topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Digital Transformation Technologies
  • All topics in relation to Computer Science and Engineering


..::ICT INNOVATIONS 2021::.. Paper Submission

ICT Innovations 2021 invites submissions of original and unpublished research papers on all conference topics. In addition, we welcome proposals for workshops which will be held in conjunction with the main conference. Submissions are to be made through the EasyChair Conference Management System. The submitted papers must be written in English and formatted according to the Springer LNCS/CCIS conference proceedings guidelines. Papers should be limited to 15 pages. All papers will be single-blind, peer reviewed by the Program Committee. If accepted, at least one of the authors must register for the Conference.

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
