COMPSAC ( is the IEEE Computer Society Signature Conference on Computers, Software, and Applications. It is a major international forum for academia, industry, and government to discuss research results and advancements, emerging problems, and future trends in computer and software technologies and applications. The technical program includes keynote addresses, research papers, industrial case studies, plenary and specialized panels, fast abstracts, a doctoral symposium, poster sessions, and a number of workshops and tutorials on emerging and important topics. The theme of the 41st COMPSAC is Building Digital Autonomy for a Sustainable World.

COMPSAC 2017 Symposia are as follows:
CELT: Computer Education & Learning Technologies
CAP: Computer Architecture & Platforms
DSAT: Data Sciences, Analytics, & Technologies
EATA: Emerging Advances in Technology & Applications
HCSC: Human Computing & Social Computing
ITiP: IT in Practice
MOWU: Mobile, Wearable, & Ubiquitous Computing
NCIW: Networks, Communications, Internet, & Web Technologies
SEPT: Security, Privacy, & Trust
SETA: Software Engineering Technology & Applications

Sessions will include topics and issues related to autonomous computing, wearable computing, the internet-of-things, social networking, cross-domain data fusion, privacy, security and surveillance, cloud computing, big data, physiological computing, self-aware and self-expressive systems, adaptive learning and teaching, and emerging architectures and network issues that affect all these developing technology-driven innovations.

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research work, as well as industrial practice reports. COMPSAC offer publication opportunities in IEEE journals following the "Conference First / Journal Second (C1J2)" and "Journal First / Conference Second (J1C2)" Schemes (

COMPSAC "Conference First / Journal Second (C1J2)" and "Journal First / Conference Second (J1C2)" Schemes
COMPSAC is offering opportunities to recommend our best papers for inclusion in IEEE publications, and to encourage presentation of already published journal papers during the conference. These schemes, to be executed at the discretion of individual COMPSAC symposia and workshops chairs, are as follows:

Chairs may offer the authors of accepted papers opportunity for publication in an IEEE journal. In this C1J2 Scheme, a chair initiates the process to offer the paper(s), together with their COMPSAC reviews, for publication in an IEEE journal to the journal editor-in-chief (EIC). EICs may or may not use our reviews at their discretion, but may instead prefer to rely solely on their own reviewer communities. Such papers accepted by a journal for publication will appear in the COMPSAC proceeding as only an abstract accompanied by a note that the paper has been submitted to the journal for consideration for publication in that journal. If the paper is accepted for publication, a link to it will be provided in the conference proceedings, thus providing conference participants access to that paper. The paper will still be registered for COMPSAC and must as well be presented during the conference. If such a paper is not accepted by the journal, the paper will be later included in the conference electronic proceedings.

Similar to the above mentioned scheme, but taking place in the reverse order is the J1C2 scheme – journal publication first, conference presentation to follow. A published work in an IEEE journal, say within couple of years, or even accepted but not yet published, may be submitted to and presented at COMPSAC. If accepted, the conference proceedings will contain an abridged abstract and a link to the published version, thus conference participants may have access to that paper. This scheme benefits authors by presenting their work to a wider audience in person, discussion, networking with peers, and driving renewed interest to their work. The process is as follows: the author offers a paper by proposing it as a full-text manuscript submission to a symposium or a workshop; the paper is then lightly reviewed for suitability, scope, technical content and merit by the PC of the symposium/workshop; finally, the PC Chair(s) proposes a notification decision. The author then registers the paper and presents it during the conference at the time identified in the program.
