Conference Topics: The conference solicits submission of research papers in major areas of computing and communications, organized into the following four tracks. Relevant topics of each track include, but are not limited to:
• Computational Intelligence and Big Data Analytics: soft computing, knowledge discovery and data mining, machine learning, computational biology, agent-based systems, semantic web, information extraction and retrieval, text and web mining, health care and public services.
Track Chairs: Hung-Son Nguyen (Warsaw University, Poland) & Quoc-Bao Vo (Swinburne UT, Australia)
• Communications and Networking: Network architecture, network protocols and security, quantum networks and communications, parallel and distributed computing, grid and cloud computing, mobile and ubiquitous computing, big data systems, security & privacy, internet of things.
Track Chairs: Hsiao-Hwa Chen (National Cheng Kung Uni., Taiwan) & Hong-Son Ngo (HUST, Vietnam)
• Software Engineering and Information Systems: Software development methods, software system modeling, open source software development, software process, software testing and verification, embedded systems, distributed data management, information integration, domain and metadata modeling, e-commerce and business integration solutions.
Track Chairs: Mizuhito Ogawa (JAIST, Japan) & Bich-Thuy Thi Dong (HCMUS, Vietnam)
• Image, Language, and Speech Processing: Language and speech processing, human-computer interface and interaction, multimedia, image processing, information visualization.
Track Chairs: Chi-Mai Luong (Inst. of IT, VAST, Vietnam) & Muriel Visani (Uni. of La Rochelle, France)
*Special Session on Computational Biomedicine: Next generation sequencing platforms and technologies, genomics and proteomics, genomic medicine, medical informatics and translational bioinformatics, drug discovery, computational methodologies and algorithms, bioinformatics infrastructure, computational systems biology, integration of biomedical data, biomedical ontologies, text mining and natural language processing for biomedical literature, algorithmic biology, computational biomodeling.
The purpose of this session is to bring together researchers from the fields of biology, medicine, and computer science to exchange knowledge and to provide a platform for collaborative research. The special session is centralized in the same submission and reviewing Easy Chair system as for the other conference tracks. Submissions to the session are thus required to follow the same format and important dates, and accepted papers will have to meet the same standards and be published in the main conference proceedings, as the regular papers.
Session Chairs: Son Pham (Salk Institute, USA) and Ly Le (International University, VNUHCM, Vietnam)
Authors are invited to submit papers of up to 6 pages, written in English, in PDF format and compliant with the IEEE standard (http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html). All papers must be original contributions and not previously published, nor currently under consideration, for publication elsewhere.
Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. The Chairs of the Program Committee are not allowed to submit papers to the conference for a fair review process.
Papers should be submitted through the EasyChair conference submission system at
Double-Blind Peer Review
RIVF 2016 uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from each other throughout the review process. To facilitate this, authors need to remove names and affiliations under the title within the manuscript and to ensure that the manuscript is written so as not to give away their identity.
Post-conference journal publications
Extended versions of selected best papers will be invited for publication in the following prestigious international journals.
