Call for Papers

2016 Cyber Science and Technology Congress (CyberSciTech 2016)

Auckland, New Zealand
August 8-12, 2016

Theme: Towards Cyber-Enabled New Sciences, Technologies and Applications
for a Better Society

We have been able to digitize almost everything. Besides, whatever we
digitize, we can certainly integrate and analyze. That also enabled the

of a new paradigm on global information networks and infrastructures known
as Cyberspace, which has emerged as the new frontier that seamlessly brings

together physical, social and mental spaces. Cyberspace is evolving to
become an integral component of our daily life bringing together work and

life; learning and entertainment, and business and cultural activities. As
expected, this whole concept of cyberspace brings new challenges that need

be tackled.

To address these continuously emerging challenges, there is a need to
establish new sciences and research portfolios that incorporates

cyber-social and cyber-mental together in a coherent manner to deliver the
vision of Cyberspace. This is the aim of the 2016 Cyber Science and

Congress (CyberSciTech 2016). Its purpose is to offer a common platform for
scientists, researchers and engineers to exchange their latest ideas and

outcomes in research, technology and science. It is also a venue to
exchange the latest advances in cyberspace studies with its broad scope of

related sciences, technologies and applications topics.

The CyberSciTech 2016 Congress will be held jointly with the 14th IEEE
International Conference on Dependable, Autonomic and Secure Computing

2016); the 14th IEEE International Conference on Pervasive Intelligence and
Computing (PICom 2016); and the 2nd International Conference on Big Data

Intelligence and Computing (DataCom 2016).
