You are cordially invited to participate in and attend the International Symposium on Information Systems and Engineering to be held in conjunction with HPCS 2014, July 21-25, 2014 in Bologna, Italy. The Symposium is to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in information technology, engineering, and systems, their design and use, modeling and simulation, and their impact. Participation is encouraged for all researchers, designers, educators and interested parties in all ISE disciplines and specialties.


The Symposium will include invited presentations from experts from academia, industry, and government as well as contributed paper presentations describing original work that address the current state of research in information technologies and related issues. The meeting’s intent is to bring together scientists, engineers, practitioners, computer users, and students to share and exchange their experiences, ideas, and research results about all aspects of Information Systems and Engineering modeling, simulation and evaluation, and to discuss challenges encountered and potential solutions sought.

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to Information Systems and Engineering. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. For Regular papers, please submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column IEEE formatted pages, and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and all authors email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author(s). Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and poster (please refer to for posters submission details) will also be accepted. Please specify the type of submission you have. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the symposium paper submission site at xxx . Acknowledgement will be sent within 48 hours of submission.

Only PDF files will be accepted, sent by email to the symposium organizers. Each paper will receive a minimum of three reviews. Papers will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, technical clarity, and presentation. Submission implies the willingness of at least one of the authors to register and present the paper, if accepted. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper will have to register and attend the HPCS 2014 conference to present the paper at the symposium.

Accepted papers will be published in the Conference proceedings. Instructions for final manuscript format and requirements will be posted on the HPCS 2014 Conference web site. It is our intent to have the proceedings formally published in hard and soft copies and be available at the time of the conference. The proceedings is projected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library and indexed in all major indexing services accordingly.

If you have any questions about paper submission or the symposium, please contact the symposium organizers.
