First International Conference on Advances in Computing and Communications (ACC-2011)  

Kochi, Kerala, India

July, 22-24, 2011

Technically co-sponsored by Association of Computing Machinery (ACM) - SIGWEB


ACC2011 focuses on Advances in Computing and Communications, and it will provide a forum for sharing insights, experiences and interaction on various facets of evolving technologies and patterns related to Computer Science, Information Technology and Electronics. The conference provides the most relevant opportunity to bring together students, researchers and practitioners from both academia and industry. The conference will include a peer reviewed program of technical sessions, workshops, tutorials, and demonstration sessions.

Technical papers describing original, previously unpublished results are solicited in all areas of theory and practice of Computing, Communication and Information Technologies. Authors are invited to submit papers through EDAS Conference Management System ( proceedings of the conference will be published by Springer in the series of Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS). CCIS is abstracted/indexed in ISI Proceedings, DBLP and Scopus. The Proceedings of ACC2011 will also be included in the CCIS electronic book series hosted in the SpringerLink digital library. All the accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings. The organizers of ACC 2011 as well as our attendees expect accepted papers to be presented at the conference.

ACC- 2011 is organized by Rajagiri School of Engineering and Technology (RSET), a premier institution of higher learning in Kerala, India ( during July, 22-24, 2011 at Kochi, Kerala, India. The Campus is located on the banks of the river Chitrapuzha. It is 0.5 km from the Seaport - Airport Highway, 13 km from Ernakulam North Railway Station, and 27 km from the Nedumbassery International Airport. RSET is an endeavor of the Sacred Heart Province of the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI) - the first-ever indigenous religious congregation for men in the Syrian Catholic tradition of Christianity in India. 

Kochi (colonial name Cochin) is a vibrant city situated on the south-west coast of the Indian peninsula in the breathtakingly scenic and prosperous state of Kerala, hailed as 'God's Own Country' (, Its strategic importance over the centuries is underlined by the sobriquet Queen of the Arabian Sea.
