The IADIS international conference on “Theory and Practice in Modern Computing” provides a forum for research and developments in the field of computing foundations and technology. Modern computing comes not only with efficient concepts and their application, but also it often
addresses networking and mobility topics. Hence, the view in TPMC ranges from fundamentals like new or improved algorithms to very recent and modern applications like ubiquitous scenarios or even everyday computing. Complementary to these technically-oriented contents, TPMC also shall serve as discussion platform about ethics and social impact of those technologies. In its main focus, this scientific conference aims to attract research reports on efficient application and realization of simple algorithmic methods, new architectures in design and data structures, new and improved communication protocols, and synthesis of known computing concepts and approaches.

* Format of the Conference
The conference will comprise of invited talks and oral presentations.
The proceedings of the conference will be published in the form of a book and CD-ROM with ISBN, and will be available also in the IADIS Digital Library (accessible on-line).
The conference proceedings will be submitted for indexing to INSPEC, EI Compendex, Thomson ISI, ISTP and other indexing services.

* Best Papers
Selected authors of best papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to
selected journals (i.e. IADIS International Journal on Computer Science and Information Systems (IJCSIS - ISSN: 1646-3692) including journals from INDERSCIENCE Publishers.
