*Call for Papers*

The ACS/IEEE International Conference on Computer Systems and Applications
(AICCSA) is the premier conference covering all contemporary areas in
computer systems and applications and hence it is an international forum
for leading researchers and practitioners in these important and rapidly
changing disciplines. AICCSA 2021 will be held in the lovely and highly
vibrant city of Tangier, Morocco.

We are pleased to invite you to submit original contributions to AICCSA’21
via the official submission system for the conference
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aiccsa2021 . A submission may
include technical and experimental study, theoretical study, conceptual
study, or a survey. All submissions will be peer-reviewed on the basis of
relevance, originality, importance and clarity.

Topics of interest fall under one or more of the conference tracks. Click
on each track for more information.

• Track 1: Information Retrieval, Big Data, Databases and Knowledge Systems

• Track 2: Cloud, Parallel, Distributed and High-Performance Computing

• Track 3: Multimedia, Computer Vision and Image Processing

• Track 4: Advances in Software Engineering

• Track 5: Natural Language Processing and Applications

• Track 6: Artificial Intelligence and Cognitive Systems

• Track 7: Security, Privacy and Trust

• Track 8: Social and Mobile Computing

• Track 9: Advances in Web Technologies, Semantics and Future Internet

• Track 10: Knowledge Management and Ontology Engineering

• Track 11: Advances in Data Networks, Ad-Hoc Networks, Sensor Networks,
VANETs, Internet of Things (IoT)

*Submissions Guidelines and PROCEEDINGS*

Manuscripts should be prepared in 10-point font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11"
two-column conference format. All papers should be in PDF format, and
submitted electronically on EasyChair at
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aiccsa2021. A regular paper must
not exceed 8 pages (including all figures, tables and references).
Submitted papers must present original unpublished research that is not
currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not
following these guidelines will be rejected without review. In addition,
submissions received after the due date, exceeding the length limit, or not
appropriately structured will be rejected without review. Authors may
contact the Program Chair for further information or clarification.

All submissions will be blind peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers.
Accepted papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings, and be published
by the IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services and be
submitted to IEEE Xplore for inclusion.

Each paper should include up to 7 keywords, complete postal and e-mail
addresses, and fax and phone numbers of the corresponding author. Authors
of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the conference.
Submitted papers that are deemed of good quality but could not be accepted
as regular papers may be accepted as short papers.

*Double-Blind Peer Review Guidelines*

AICCSA 2021 uses double-blind review, which means that the author’s
identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the
review process. To facilitate this, authors must ensure that their
manuscripts be prepared in a way that does not give away their identities
or affiliations. If a submission is not anonymized, it will be rejected
without review.

*Information to help prepare the Blinded Manuscript*

Besides the obvious need to remove names and affiliations under the title
within the manuscript, there are other steps that need to be taken to
ensure the manuscript is correctly prepared for double-blind peer review.
To assist with this process, the key items that need to be observed are as

- Use the third person to refer to the work the authors have previously
undertaken, e.g., replace any phrases like “as we have shown before” with
“… has been shown before [Anonymous, 2007]”.

- Make sure that figures not contain any affiliation-related identifier.

- Do not eliminate essential self-references or other references but limit
self-references only to papers that are relevant for those reviewing the
submitted paper.

- Cite papers published by the authors in the text as follows: ‘[Anonymous,

- For blinding on the reference list: ‘[Anonymous 2007] Details omitted for
double-blind review

- Remove references to funding sources.

- Do not include acknowledgments.

- Remove any identifying information, including author names, from file
names, etc. and anonymize document properties.

*Special Issues*

Selected papers from the conference will be invited to submit an extended
version to a journal to be announced. Papers will be selected based on
their reviewers’ scores and appropriateness to the Journal’s theme. All
extended versions will undergo reviews and must represent original
unpublished research work. Further details will be made available at a
later stage.
