ICTer2015

ICTer2015 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Sri Lanka Section and is the successor to the seminal International Information Technology Conference (IITC) held in Sri Lanka since 1998. It provides an ideal platform to the researchers and practitioners alike to showcase research and development activities carried out in Computer Science and Information Communication Technology domains. Proceedings of ICTer2015 will be published in both book form and on IEEE Explore. Selected papers will be invited for publication in the special issue of ICTer Journal (journal.icter.org).

The main conference will take place on 24th Monday and 25th Tuesday August 2015 at BMICH, Colombo in conjunction with the 8th International Conference on Ubi-Media Computing (UMEDIA2015). In addition to the presentation of the selected papers, several keynote addresses by leading personalities in the IT world will be made.
