Topics, Deadlines and Program Committee

1. Topics

The Third International Conference “Software and Emerging Technologies for Education, Culture, Entertainment, and Commerce (SETECEC 2014): New Directions in Multimedia Mobile Computing, Social Networks, Human-Computer Interaction and Communicability” is a scientific meeting for discussing the latest advances in the emerging areas of computer sciences and technologies for education, cultural and natural heritage, virtual entertaiment and digital commerce, for instance.

Many conferences are focussed on specific aspects of human-computer interaction, hypermedia, computer science, etc. and bring together leading experts in a particular field or sometimes on a specific technology. At such large conferences students are often marginalized or relegated to poster sessions. The conferences, workshops, symposiums, etc., are not a big scale and aim to promote dialogue between established professors and graduate students working on new directions. Hence topics from the whole range of human-computer interaction, multimedia, software, design, etc. are welcomed. Last year’s symposia, workshops, conferences, etc., organized by ALAIPO and AInCI, for instance, included papers on the topics (see below the alphabetical order). An extensive listing connotes and reflects the requirement and also skill necessary to find intersection zones of the disciplines among the different domains, fields, and specialities; which at the same time potentially boosts and merges the formerly different scientific views.

All contributions –papers, workshops, demos and doctoral consortium, should be of high quality, originality, clarity, significance and impact. In the current international conference it is demonstrated how with a correct integration among professionals of formal and factual sciences interesting research lines in the following subjects Computer Interfaces, Computer Arts and Creativity, Computer Graphics, Cultural Modeling, Education, Emerging Interactive Technologies, Hypermedia Systems and Gaming, Mobile Computing, Music and Digital Sounds, New Media, Quality Evaluation, Network Security, Social and Human Factors, Communicability, Scientific Information, Software Engineering, and other computational areas are solicited on, but not limited to (alphabetical order):

All submitted papers will be reviewed by a double-blind (at least three reviewers), non-blind, and participative peer review. These three kinds of review will support the selection process of those that will be accepted for their presentation at the international conference.  Authors of accepted papers who registered in the conference can have access to the evaluations and possible feedback provided by the reviewers who recommended the acceptance of their papers, so they can accordingly improve the final version of their papers.
