Call for contributions

18th IFIP World Computer Congress

The premier international forum on
Sciences and Technologies of Information and Communication

22-27 August 2004

Toulouse, France


The technological evolution of the sciences and technologies of 
information and communication (STIC) during the last decades is far 
from reaching completion. The challenges posed to the STIC community 
for pursuing the evolution share a dramatic jump in complexity, be it 
for the fall of elementary hardware dimensions towards nanometric 
scales, for producing software of warranted quality, or for providing 
the informational infrastructure with protections and with 
human-machine interaction modes that enable the emerging paradigm of 
Ambient Intelligence to support the Knowledge Society.

The 18th IFIP World Computer Congress will cover the above-mentioned 
challenges via a rich program featuring nine co-located established 
conferences, topical days or sessions, workshops, tutorials, a 
student forum, an exhibition.

The topics of the co-located conferences range from theoretical 
informatics to the relationship between informatics and society, 
through hardware and software technologies and non-functional aspects 
relating to our dependency on networked information systems:
     - Theoretical Computer Science - TCS
     - Information Security - SEC
     - Smartcard Research and Advanced Applications - CARDIS
     - Distributed and Parallel Embedded Systems - DIPES
     - Artificial Intelligence Applications and Innovations - AIAI
     - Human Error, Safety and System Development - HESSD
     - Virtual Enterprises - PRO-VE
     - e-Commerce, e-Business and e-Government - I3E
     - History of Computing in Education - HCE

The topical days or sessions will offer synthetic and prospective 
views on topics  of dramatic interest for the emergence of the 
Knowledge Society.

Deadlines for submission:
     - Topical sessions/days, Workshops: end October 2003
     - Conference papers (see the website for the various conferences),
       Tutorials: January 2004
