ICTer2016

We are pleased to announce that the 16th International Conference of Advances in ICT for Emerging Regions (ICTer2016) will be held from 1st to 3rd September 2016 in Negombo, Sri Lanka. ICTer 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. The ICTer conference is a unique opportunity for researcher and practitioners alike to present research and development activities in the Computer Science and Information and Communication Technology domains. The Proceedings of the conference will be published in book form and all presented papers and abstracts will be submitted to IEEE Xplore. Selected papers will be invited for publication in the special issue of the ICTer Journal (journal.icter.org).
