2nd CFP - Joint Events: Information Technologies & Technological Innovations


   Cybernetics and Information Technologies, Systems and Applications: CITSA 2013 (, and/or

   Engineering and Technological Innovation: IMETI 2013 (


To be held on July 9 - 12, 2013 in Orlando, Florida, USA


The deadline of papers/abstracts submissions and invited session proposals is on *March 11th, 2013*. The deadlines for notification to authors and camera ready upload can be found at the events web site.


Deadlines for the collocated (same venue and time) conferences and symposia can be found at (Check the web site for possible extension of the submission deadline).


Submissions for Face-to-Face or for Virtual Participation are both accepted. Both kinds of submissions 1) will have the same reviewing process, 2) the accepted papers will be included in the same proceedings, and 3) authors of the best 20%-25% papers will be invited to adapt their papers for their publication in the Journal of Systemics, Cybernetics, and Informatics with no additional costs, i.e. the respective Article Processing Charge will be waived for them.


Details about the following issues have also been included at the conference web site (URL given above):

   Pre- and post-conference virtual sessions

   Virtual participation

   Two-tier reviewing combining double-blind and non-blind methods

   Access to reviewers’ comments and evaluation average according to eight criteria

   Waiving the registration fee of effective invited session organizers

   Best papers awards


With the purpose of fostering *Inter-disciplinary Communications* participants registered at any conference or symposia can attend any sessions of the collocated events. Registered participants will also receive a CD containing the proceedings of all collocated events, and will have a password to access any virtual session of the collocated events, so they can comment any paper presented at any of the collocated events.



We would also like to inform you about a conference with similar topics to the Orlando's collocated conferences that will be held in *Porto, Portugal* on June 30 - July 6, 2013 (International Conference on Complexity, Cybernetics, and Informing Science and Engineering: CCISE 2013) Deadlines are displayed at the conference web site

About the Conference
Motives and Main Purpose Complexity, Cybernetics, and Informing Science/Engineering are increasingly being related on the conceptual, methodological, and practical dimensions. T. Grandon Gill’s book (Informing Business: Research and Education on a Rugged Landscape) shows the strong and important relationships between Complexity and Informing Science (specifically academic informing), and the potentiality of these relationships in supporting the integration of academic activities: Research, Education, and Consulting or real Life Problem Solving. On the other hand, the concepts and tools of Cybernetics (Communication and Control) are providing an increasingly effective support for more adequate integrative processes in the context of Informing Science and Engineering, as well as in the context of relating academic activities, more effective and synergistically, among themselves and with professional practice and Society at large.

The purpose of the Organizing Committee of the International Conference on Complexity, Cybernetics, and Informing Science and Engineering: CCISE 2013 is to bring together scholars and professionals from the three fields, Complexity, Cybernetics, and Informing Science/Engineering (including scholars/professionals in their supporting tools and technologies) in order to promote and foster inter-disciplinary communication and interactions among them; oriented to foster the formation of the intellectual humus required for inter-disciplinary synergies, inter-domain cross-fertilization, and the production of creative analogies. Consequently, formal disciplinary oriented breakout sessions will be complemented with interdisciplinary presentations and informal conversational sessions.
There are many good disciplinary, specific and focused conferences in any one of the major themes of CCISE 2013. There are also good general conferences, which have a wider scope and are more comprehensive. Each one of these kinds of conferences has its typical audience. CCISE 2013 Organizing Committee purpose is to bring together both kinds of audiences, so participants with a disciplinary and focused research will be able to interact with participants from other related disciplines for interdisciplinary communication and potential inter-disciplinary collaborative research.
