National Geographic.


The WorldCIST'15 - 3rd World Conference on Information Systems and 
Technologies, to be held at Ponta Delgada, São Miguel, Azores, Portugal, 1 - 3 
April 2015, is a global forum for researchers and practitioners to present and 
discuss the most recent innovations, trends, results, experiences and concerns 
in the several perspectives of Information Systems and Technologies.

Azores is ranked as the second most beautiful archipelago in the world by 
National Geographic. Consisting of nine distinct islands, each of them special, 
is in fact a place in the world to be visited.

We are pleased to invite you to submit your papers to WorldCISTI'15. All 
submissions will be reviewed on the basis of relevance, originality, importance 
and clarity.


Submitted papers should be related with one or more of the main themes proposed 
for the Conference:

A) Information and Knowledge Management (IKM);
B) Organizational Models and Information Systems (OMIS);
C) Intelligent and Decision Support Systems (IDSS);
D) Big Data Analytics and Applications (BDAA);
E) Software Systems, Architectures, Applications and Tools (SSAAT);
F) Multimedia Systems and Applications (MSA);
G) Computer Networks, Mobility and Pervasive Systems (CNMPS);
H) Human-Computer Interaction (HCI);
I) Health Informatics (HIS);
J) Information Technologies in Education (ITE).
K) Information Technologies in Radiocommunications (ITR)


Four types of papers can be submitted:

- Full paper: Finished or consolidated R&D works, to be included in one of the 
Conference themes. These papers are assigned a 10-page limit.

- Short paper: Ongoing works with relevant preliminary results, open to 
discussion. These papers are assigned a 7-page limit.

- Poster paper: Initial work with relevant ideas, open to discussion. These 
papers are assigned to a 4-page limit.

- Company paper: Companies' papers that show practical experience, R & D, 
tools, etc., focused on some topics of the conference. These papers are 
assigned to a 4-page limit.

Submitted papers must comply with the format of Advances in Intelligent Systems 
and Computing Series (see Instructions for Authors at Springer Website or 
download a DOC example) be written in English, must not have been published 
before, not be under review for any other conference or publication and not 
include any information leading to the authors’ identification. Therefore, the 
authors’ names, affiliations and bibliographic references should not be 
included in the version for evaluation by the Program Committee. This 
information should only be included in the camera-ready version, saved in Word 
or Latex format and also in PDF format. These files must be accompanied by the 
Consent to Publication form filled out, in a ZIP file, and uploaded at the 
conference management system.

All papers will be subjected to a “double-blind review” by at least two members 
of the Program Committee.

Based on Program Committee evaluation, a paper can be rejected or accepted by 
the Conference Chairs. In the later case, it can be accepted as the type 
originally submitted or as another type. Thus, full papers can be accepted as 
short papers or poster papers only. Similarly, short papers can be accepted as 
poster papers only. In these cases, the authors will be allowed to maintain the 
original number of pages in the camera-ready version.

The authors of accepted poster papers must also build and print a poster to be 
exhibited during the Conference. This poster must follow an A1 or A2 vertical 
format. The Conference can includes Work Sessions where these posters are 
presented and orally discussed, with a 5 minute limit per poster.

The authors of accepted full papers will have 15 minutes to present their work 
in a Conference Work Session; approximately 5 minutes of discussion will follow 
each presentation. The authors of accepted short papers and company papers will 
have 11 minutes to present their work in a Conference Work Session; 
approximately 4 minutes of discussion will follow each presentation.


To ensure that a full paper, short paper, poster paper or company paper is 
published in the Proceedings, at least one of the authors must be fully 
registered by the 6th of January 2015, and the paper must comply with the 
suggested layout and page-limit. Additionally, all recommended changes must be 
addressed by the authors before they submit the camera-ready version.

No more than one paper per registration will be published in the Conference 
Proceedings. An extra fee must be paid for publication of additional papers, 
with a maximum of one additional paper per registration.

Full and short papers will be published in Proceedings by Springer, in Advances 
in Intelligent Systems and Computing Series. Poster and company papers will be 
published by AISTI.

Published full and short papers will be submitted for indexation by ISI, 
EI-Compendex, SCOPUS and DBLP, among others, and will be available in the 
SpringerLink Digital Library.

The authors of the best selected papers will be invited to extend them for 
publication in international journals indexed by ISI/SCI, SCOPUS and DBLP, 
among others, such as:
