About ACSS

The 4th International Doctoral Symposium on Applied Computation and Security Systems (ACSS) is to be held during March 17-19, 2017 in NIT Patna. ACSS 2017 is aimed at offering a qualified opportunity for presentation and discussion of the research outcomes by PhD scholars enrolled with Universities and Research Institutes around the world. While the emphasis of the workshop is on Security Systems, we solicit research outcomes on other relevant areas pertaining to advancement of computing.


The selected and presented works for ACSS 2017 are to be published by Springer after the symposium as an edited book in the series "Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing" ( http://www.springer.com/series/11156 ). Papers that are accepted for poster presentations will go through a second round of review by an eminent panel of experts during the symposium. Extended version of the selected poster papers, based on the opinion of the expert panel, shall also be included in the post symposium book as complete book-chapter.
The following Special Issue proposals are accepted for selected papers from ACSS 2017.
  • "Signal Processing and Security in Distributed Systems" in Springer Transactions on Computational Science; ISSN: 1866-4741.
  • "Human Interface for IoT Applications" in Inderscience International Journal of Biometrics; ISSN: 1755-8301.

Scope:
  • We would request researchers to submit manuscripts containing unpublished research work in the domains of computing and security systems. Please see the detailed list of topics in the Call For Paper.
  • We particularly encourage researchers involved in emerging areas to submit their works for interesting discussions and post-symposium Springer Books to be indexed by the Conference Proceedings Citation Index of Thomson Reuters (ISI Indexing), EI-Compendex, DBLP and SCOPUS.

  • "Human Interface for IoT Applications" in Inderscience International Journal of Biometrics; ISSN: 1755-8301.
Submission: Each contributed paper must have at least one enrolled PhD student and his/her supervisor as co-authors.
If selected, the PhD student must register and present the work in the symposium. We welcome all such authors to submit research papers to 4th International Doctoral Symposium on Applied Computation and Security Systems (ACSS-2017). This symposium would be best suited for scholars who already have a plan outlined for their dissertation in one of the following broad areas:

  • Computer Vision & Signal Processing
  • Biometrics-based Authentication
  • Security for internet of things
  • Analysis and verification techniques
  • security in mobile and cloud scenarios
  • large scale Networking
  • Remote Healthcare
  • Distributed Systems
  • Musical Information Retrieval
  • Software Engineering
  • Cloud Computing
  • Human Computer Interaction
  • Privacy and Confidentiality
  • Access Control
  • Big Data and Data Mining
  • Android Security

Authors are requested to submit their original research work via edas: https://edas.info/index.php?c=22912 The submission draft for full papers should be limited to 10-12 pages. The authors of selected papers shall be required to submit an extended version for publication as a book chapter in the post-symposium book. The book(s) will be published by Springer and will be indexed with DBLP, SCOPUS, etc.

All papers will be reviewed by the program committee, and a balanced program will be selected based on relevance and technical soundness. Please download the proceedings template for the manuscript and author instructions from http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0. Each paper will receive at least two blind reviews. A brief review note by the supervisor explaining the scope of the work and its significance is to be mailed to acss2017@nitp.ac.in  after the manuscript is submitted.

Any work that is not presented by the PhD student in ACSS - 2017 shall not be included in the post-conference book.

Publications Indexing

The authors of selected works shall be required to submit an extended version of their work based on the discussions during the symposium. This extended version will be published as a book-chapter in the bi-volume post-symposium book to be published by Springer.
