11th International Conference ICT Innovations 2019

ICT INNOVATIONS 2019 Conference Aims and Scope

The ICT Innovations conference brings together researchers, professionals and practitioners to disseminate and discuss their most recent scientific contributions, practical solutions and experiences in a wide range of ICT research areas. The conference encourages diverse set of contributions including theoretical, engineering and applied.

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

The official language of the conference is English.


ICT INNOVATIONS 2019 Publications

All full papers will be included in the conference proceedings that is planed to be published by Springer in Communications in Computer and Information Science Series (CCIS), ISSN: 1865:0929. CCIS is abstracted/indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, SCOPUS. CCIS volumes are also submitted for the inclusion in Thompson Reuters ISI Proceedings.

A revised and extended version of the Best Papers of the Conference might be accepted for publication in a Special Issue of Informatica, after a further peer review stage.

Accepted workshop and short papers will be published in the established and cited web proceedings with DOI numbers. Additional information is available at http://ictinnovations.org/.

This year’s special conference topic is “Processing, mining and analyzing Big Data”.


ICT INNOVATIONS 2019 Programme Committee

The ICT Innovations program committee consists of more than 210 distinguished scientists from 55 different countries.


ICT INNOVATIONS 2018 Workshops and Special Sessions

The conference traditionally supports organization of workshops and special sessions. If you are interested in proposing a special session or a workshop, please send your proposal to: sonja.gievska@finki.ukim.mk or gjorgji.madjarov@finki.ukim.mk



Submissions are to be made through the EasyChair Conference Management System.
Authors are invited to submit full papers (12 to 15 pages) in Springer LNCS/CCIS one-column page format (for more information, refer to http://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines). The review process will be a double-blind peer review. Papers must be based on unpublished, mature and original work and must be submitted to ICT Innovations 2019 only. At least one author of each accepted contribution is required to register (registration with conference proceedings) for the Conference. The maximum number of accepted papers per author/co-author is two.



ICT Innovations 2019 conference will be based around the theme of Processing, mining and analyzing Big Data

Big Data is heralded as the most exciting challenge in the last decade. The spread of smart, ubiquitous computing and social networking have brought to light more information to consider. Vast amounts of heterogeneous, multi-modal, noisy and dynamic data are generated from diverse type of applications, such as social media, sensors, Internet of Things, scientific applications, surveillance, video and image streams. Storage, integration, processing and analysis of massive quantities of data pose significant challenges that are yet to be fully addressed.

A significant research and development front in the field of machine learning and data analytics has been established. Extracting patterns from big data that offer insights and understanding provides an exciting new platform and objectives for behavioral analytics, predictive and prescriptive modeling and knowledge discovery. By leveraging the advances in deep learning, stream analytics, large-scale graph analysis and distributed data mining, a remarkable number of complex and multi-faceted tasks in fields like, biology, games, robotics, commerce, transportation and health care have been brought within reach.

We want to bring some of these topics to the forefront of the ICT 2019 conference. While we anticipate a broad technical program, we are especially interested in papers that address all aspects of big data mining, including algorithms, models, systems, and applications.

Authors are invited to submit original works in relevant fields, especially if related to:
  • Sensor network analysis
  • Social networks analysis
  • Data stream processing and analysis
  • Parallel and distributed data mining (cloud, map-reduce)
  • Explainable AI
  • Business intelligence
  • Automated and personalized advertising
  • Multimedia data analysis
  • FinTech
  • Healthcare analysis
  • Time series analysis
  • Natural language processing
  • Analyzing scientific data
  • Spatio-temporal data analysis
  • Graph analysis
  • Bioinformatics
  • Behavior analytics
  • Privacy & Security
