The Fifth International Symposium on Innovation in Information and Communication Technology (ISIICT 2018)

October 31 - November 01, 2018 , Philadelphia University, Amman, Jordan



  • Submission of Papers: 24/09/2018
  • Notification of Acceptance: 28/09/2018
  • Final Submission (Camera Ready): 05/10/2018
  • Early Registration Deadline: 01/10/2018

The symposium is intended to serve as a hub to identify emerging research topics, and define the future of Information and Communication Technologies.

The technical program of The ISIICT 2018 will include a Research Track, an Application Track, and a Short Paper Track. Theoretical and technical contributions addressing all areas related to systems, applications and innovations are solicited. Papers on the new generation of Utility Computing, including cloud and edge computing, are particularly welcome. Tutorials and panel discussions on the challenges brought by these technologies will be organised. All submissions will be refereed by at least three members of the Programme Committee.
