Call for Papers

DoCEIS'18 contributors are challenged to identify in which ways their research topics can contribute to or benefit from the research theme and are encouraged to participate in this conference.

Among other activities, it includes:

  • Presentation of research results by PhD students (co-authored by their supervisors).
  • Tutorials by invited experts on scientific, methodological, or soft skills topics.
  • Presentation and discussion of the base ideas of the thesis plans.
  • Discussion of the scientific and technical challenges in the several Electrical and Computer Engineering specialization areas.
  • Sharing of experiences among PhD students from different geographical regions.
  • Forum on practical aspects (e.g. Publications, job markets, careers, etc.).
  • Creation of collaboration (social) networks.
Prospective authors of research papers are invited to submit their manuscripts reporting original work, in any of the scientific areas of the conference. Papers describing advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers indicating future directions are also encouraged. Nevertheless, each paper must make a clear link to the main theme of the conference, including a section describing that link. Following the successful previous editions, proceedings are expected to be published by Springer, IFIP AICT series (indexed in Web of Science, SCOPUS and DBLP). Best papers will be considered for possible inclusion in a special journal issue.
