CFP: International Conference on Information Systems and Technologies (ICIST’2013)

International Conference on Information Systems and Technologies(ICIST’2013) is a forum for researchers, developers and industrials in the information systems field and the continuance of the following event: ICIST’11 (Tebessa, Algeria) and ICIST’12 (Sousse, Tunisia). It reports progress and development of methodologies, technologies, planning and implementation, tools and standards in information systems. The conference looks also at socio-economic aspects, impacts and success factors of information systems.

Best selected papers will be published in IAES Journal.

  1. International Journal of Informatics and Communication Technology (IJ-ICT)
  2. International Journal of Social Networking and Virtual Communities
  3. IAES International Journal of Artificial Intelligence (IJ-AI)
