THE 2nd INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON NEW TRENDS IN COMPUTING SCIENCES (ICTCS 2019)

 

Princess Sumaya University for Technology, Amman, Jordan, 9-11 October 2019

 

The 2nd  International Conference on new Trends in Computing Sciences (ICTCS’19) is organized by the King Hussein School for Computing Science at Princess Sumaya University for Technology in cooperation with the Scientific Research Fund at the Ministry of Higher Education, Prince Mohammad bin Fahd University (PMU) and the Royal Scientific Society (RSS). Building on the resounding success of its first edition, the goal of the conference is to continue providing international biannual forum where international scientists meet with Jordanian scientists from the different fields of computer science to exchange ideas and information on current trends of research results, system developments, and practical experiences. The conference will include distinguished keynote addresses with speakers from both industry and academia. Papers reporting original and unpublished research are solicited. All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and relevance through double-blind reviewing. The conference is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Jordan Section and will be published by the Conference Publishing Services (CPS). The proceedings of the conference will be submitted to IEEEXplore and Computer Science Digital Library (CSDL) for indexing
