committee of the above conferences have their 2019 events held at one
venue (same location and dates). One registration covers access to all
sessions of all conferences. The above conferences & events will be held
simultaneously; ie, same location and dates; July 29 - August 1, 2019,

   You are invited to submit a paper for consideration. All accepted
   papers will be published in printed conference books (ISBN),
   imprinted by the American Council on Science and Education, and
   distributed/published by CSREA (Computer Science Research, Education,
   and Applications Press). The proceedings will also be made available
   online. The printed proceedings/books will be available for
   distribution on site at the conference. The books will be indexed in
   science databases, including EBSCO (www.ebsco.com), one of the
   largest subject index systems, and others. ACM Digital Library is
   also including the titles into its databases as well as ProQuest
   indexing databases and others.

   In addition, like prior years, extended versions of selected papers
   (about 40%) will appear in journals and 12 edited research books;
   publishers include, Springer, Elsevier, BMC, and others. Each book
   in each series will be subject to Elsevier and Springer science
   indexing products (which includes: Scopus, www.info.scopus.com; SCI
   Compendex, Engineering Village, www.ei.org; EMBASE, www.info.embase.com ;
   and others). See the web link below for a small subset of such
   publications: (some of these books and journal special issues have
   already received the top 25% downloads in their respective fields and/or
   identified as "Highly Accessed" by publishers and/or science citation
   index trackers.)


   Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading
   them to the evaluation web site at:  https://american-cse.org/ 
   Submissions must be uploaded by the due date (see IMPORTANT DATES) and
   must be in either MS doc or pdf formats (7 pages for Regular Research
   Papers; 4 pages for Short Research Papers; 2 pages for Extended
   Abstract/Poster Papers - the number of pages include all figures,
   tables, and references). All reasonable typesetting formats are
   acceptable (later, the authors of accepted papers will be asked to
   follow a particular typesetting format to prepare their final papers
   for publication; these formatting instructions appear at the submission
   web site and they conform to the two-column IEEE style format - see:
   https://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html ).
   Papers must not have been previously published or currently submitted for
   publication elsewhere.

   The first page of the paper should include the followings:
      - Title of the paper
      - Name, affiliation, postal address, and email address of each
        author (identify the name of the Contact Author)
      - Abstract (between 100 and 120 words)
      - A maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the
        work described in the paper
      - Write the type of the submission as "Regular Research Paper",
        "Short Research Paper", or "Extended Abstract/Poster Paper".
      - The actual text of the paper can start from the first page
        (space permitting).
      Submissions are to be uploaded to the submission/evaluation web site
      portal at https://american-cse.org/ 

   Type of Submissions/Papers:

     - Full/Regular Research Papers (maximum of 7 pages):
       Regular Research Papers should provide detail original research
       contributions. They must report new research results that
       represent a contribution to the field; sufficient details and
       support for the results and conclusions should also be provided.
       The work presented in regular papers are expected to be at a
       stage of maturity that with some additional work can be published
       as journal papers.

     - Short Research Papers (maximum of 4 pages):
       Short Research Papers report on ongoing research projects. They
       should provide overall research methodologies with some results.
       The work presented in short papers are expected to be at a stage
       of maturity that with some additional work can be published as
       regular papers.

     - Extended Abstract/Poster Papers (maximum of 2 pages):
       Poster papers report on ongoing research projects that are still
       in their infancy (i.e., at very early stages). Such papers tend
       to provide research methodologies without yet concrete results.

   Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for
   originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In cases
   of contradictory recommendations, a member of the conference program
   committee would be charged to make the final decision (accept/reject);
   often, this would involve seeking help from additional referees.
   Papers whose authors include a member of the conference program
   committee will be evaluated using the double-blinded review process.
   (Essay/philosophical papers will not be refereed but may be considered
   for discussion/panels).


   Each conference ( https://americancse.org/events/csce2019/conferences )
   is composed of a number of tracks. A track can be a session, a workshop,
   or a symposium. A session will have at least 6 papers; a workshop at
   least 12 papers; and a symposium at least 18 papers. Track chairs will
   be responsible for all aspects of their tracks, including: soliciting
   papers, reviewing, selecting, ... The names of track chairs will appear
   as Associate Editors in the conference proceedings and on the cover of
   the printed books (and indexed as such). Track chairs who attract a
   sufficient number of solid papers can propose to edit books with a major
   publisher based on the extended versions of the papers accepted in their
   tracks (the congress will facilitate and help such track chairs to get
   the publisher's approval: such as Springer, Elsevier, ...).

   Proposals to organize tracks (sessions, workshops, or symposiums) should
   include the following information: name and address (+ email) of proposer,
   his/her biography, title of track, a 100-word description of the topic of
   the track, the name of the conference the track is submitted for
   consideration, and a short description on how the track will be advertised
   (in most cases, track proposers solicit papers from colleagues and
   researchers whose work is known to the track proposer). E-mail your track
   proposal to cs at american-cse.org . We would like to receive the track
   proposals as soon as possible.


   The CSCE 2019 Congress plans to host its two-day Career, Job, & Education
