Call for Papers

Scope

BICT 2020 aims to provide a world-leading and multidisciplinary venue for researchers and practitioners in diverse disciplines that seek the understanding of key principles, processes and mechanisms in biological systems and leverage those understandings to develop novel information and communications technologies.

BICT 2020 will feature the state-of-the-art keynote speeches, parallel technical sessions, focused special tracks, interactive demo/poster sessions, tutorials, and informative co-located workshops.

Welcome to the EAI Community

Let the EAI Community help you build your career with collaborative research, objective evaluation, and fair recognition:

  • Get more visibility for your paper and receive a fair review with Community Review,
  • Earn credits regardless of your paper’s acceptance and increase your EAI Index for new membership ranks and global recognition,
  • Find out if your research resonates – get real-time evaluation of your presentation on-site via EAI Compass.

  • Intelligent Sensor Network, organized by Peng He (Chongqing University of Posts and Telecommunications) and Yue Sun (Chengdu Univerisity of Technology)
  • Data driven intelligent modeling, application and optimization, organized by Hengyu Li and Jianguo Wang (Shanghai University)

Publication

All registered papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library.

BICT proceedings are indexed in leading indexing services, including Ei Compendex, ISI Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL).

Authors of selected best accepted and presented papers will be invited to submit an extended version to:

Additional publication opportunities:

Community Review

Community Review is a service offered to Program Committees and submitting Authors of all EAI conferences designed to improve the speed and the quality of the review process.

Abstracts of all authors who opt in to Community Review during submission will be published and available for Bidding here.
