You are invited to submit a paper for consideration. All accepted papers
will be published by IEEE CPS (+ IEEE Xplore) in the proceedings of The
2016 International Conference on Computational Science and Computational
Intelligence (CSCI). The proceedings will be indexed in science citation
databases that track citation frequency/data. Extended versions of
selected papers of the conference will also appear in journals and
edited research books (Springer, Elsevier, BMC, …). The published
proceedings can be accessed via IEEE CPS and other Digital libraries.


All accepted papers of this symposium will be published by IEEE CPS:
as part of the proceedings of The 2016 International Conference on
Computational Science and Computational Intelligence (CSCI’16). Past
year’s CSCI proceedings are indexed into IEEE Xplore Digital Library and
can be accessed via:
Volume I (2014):
Volume II (2014):
Volume (2015):
and via ACM Digital Library at:

Authors of accepted papers must agree with the standard IEEE CPS statement
in reference to Copyrights (Intellectual Property Rights):
and Policy on Electronic Dissemination:

Papers should be typeset by using the general typesetting instructions
available at:
(i.e., use of regular Times New Roman, font size of 10, single line
spacing, 2-column format). Authors of accepted papers will later receive
more specific typesetting instructions. All submissions must be original
(papers must not have been previously published or currently being
considered by others for publication).

Submissions must be in either MS doc or pdf formats (6 pages for Regular
Research Papers; 4 pages for Short Papers; 2 pages for Poster Papers –
the number of pages include all figures, tables, and references).

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 “Full/Regular Research Paper”,
“Short Paper”, or “Poster Paper”
– Write the acronym of this symposium (i.e., CSCI-ISBD).
– The actual text of the paper can start from the first page (space

Submissions are to be uploaded to the submission/evaluation web site
portal at:


– Full/Regular Research Papers (maximum of 6 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

– Short Papers (maximum of 4 pages):
Short 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.

– 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 2 to 4 peers (except for papers that
are philosophical in nature – such papers would be considered for panel
discussions.) Confidentiality of submitted material will be maintained.
Papers will be evaluated on the basis of originality, impact,
significance, quality of research, quality of writing, and contribution
to conference program and diversity. Papers whose authors include one
or more members of the program committee will be evaluated using the
double-blinded review process. 161115


October 10, 2016:     (11:59pm US Eastern Time Zone) Submission of Papers
October 25, 2016:     Notification of acceptance (+/- 2 days)
November 10, 2016:    Final papers and Registration for Authors of
Accepted Papers
December 15-17, 2016: The 2016 International Symposium on Big Data and
Data Science (CSCI-ISBD).
CSCI-ISBD is an important part of The 2016 International
Conference on Computational Science and Computational
Intelligence (CSCI’16: Las Vegas, USA), other federated
symposiums will also be held simultaneously (i.e., same
location and dates) facilitating increased opportunities
for cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines.
