FGCS Forum

The FGCS Forum provides an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present the objectives and outcomes of the accepted/published papers in the journal of Future Generation Computer Systems at the main conference of IOTBD 2016. Participants are invited to prepare a 15 minute oral/poster presentation of their FGCS paper at a special session. The goal of this forum (minimum 6 participants; maximum 18) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics, provide a framework to editors discuss future directions for the accepted/published papers, to network with other researchers potentially interested in submitting a paper to these journals and increase the visibility and citations. Registration to IoTBD, COMPLEXIS, CSEDU, SMARTGREENS, WEBIST, CLOSER, VEHITS conferences allows free access to the FGCS Forum (as a non-speaker).
