The Twelfth International Symposium on Programming and Systems


April 28, 29, 30, 2015, "La Maison de la Science", USTHB, Algiers (http://www.isps.usthb.dz)

**************** FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS ******************

Paper submission deadline: January 25, 2015


The International Symposium on Programming and Systems (ISPS) is a biennial event that brings together top researchers in Computer Science from all over the world to present and discuss recent research results in various areas of the field.

Strong of its experience that accuses more than 20 years, the ISPS conference has evolved and managed to gather around her a scientific participation of high quality and growing interest.

Indeed, from its first edition in 1991, the growth has been steady and substantial through the eleven past editions. From the edition held in 2011, ISPS has earned the IEEE label and the conference papers were indexed through IEEE Xplore and for the 2013 edition, we have received the technical sponsorship of IEEE subsection Algeria.

Beside, ISPS now benefits from the expertise of an international program committee whose members have been chosen for their technical quality.

The papers are reviewed according to international standards via the Easy Chair conference system. ISPS is already at its twelfth edition, a sure sign of maturity and quality! And the managing team aims to continue in this way and ensure the continuation of the high quality of the conference. The purpose of the 12th ISPS conference is to bring more and more together researchers, engineers and practitionners interested in the computer science and technological advances. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are encouraged.

All papers must describe original work, not previously published or submitted to another conference. Accepted papers, presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the Proceedings of ISPS. Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Both full research reports and work-in-progress reports are welcome. There will be both oral and poster sessions.

ISPS’2015 have four main tracks, covering different domains of computer science including Communication Technologies and Systems Security, Information Technology, Computational Intelligence and Computer systems and Applications.

The Laboratory for Research in Artificial Intelligence (LRIA) of the Computer Science Department at the University of Science and Technology Houari Boumediene (USTHB) will organize the third Artificial Intelligence Doctorial Days (AIDD’2015)tobe held at USTHB on the 17th and 18th of March 2015. This event is directed towards all PhD students (Doctoral School, Classic Doctorate, and LMD Doctorate) who work on topics related to Artificial Intelligence. It is meant to give them an opportunity to present their fairly mature research work and get an opportunity to discuss it with experts from the area of artificial intelligence. A number of international and local speakers will also be invited to give lectures on leading-edge research in intelligent systems.

AIDD’2015 will focus on High Performance Computing for Artificial Intelligence and Data Mining, seeing that in recent years the HPC is involved in many fields and is perfectly aligned with artificial intelligence since the two appeared to effectively solve the problems of everyday life.

The purpose of AIDD’2015 is to provide a forum for doctoral students at the university to present their research work, developments, and applications in the area of High Performance Computing for Artificial Intelligence, Data Mining and applications or on related topics. The best papers will thus be selected and their authors will be given a chance to present them at the doctorial days.
