About ACSS

The 6th International Doctoral Symposium on Applied Computation and Security Systems (ACSS-2019) is to be held during March 22-24, 2019 in Kolkata, India. ACSS 2019 is aimed at offering a qualified opportunity for presentation and discussion of the research outcomes by PhD scholars enrolled with Universities and Research Institutes around the world. While the emphasis of the workshop is on Security Systems, we solicit research outcomes on other relevant areas pertaining to advancement of computing.

  • We would request researchers to submit manuscripts containing unpublished research work in the domains of computing and security systems. Please see the detailed list of topics in the Call For Paper.
  • We particularly encourage researchers involved in emerging areas to submit their works for interesting discussions and post-symposium Springer Books to be indexed by the Conference Proceedings Citation Index of Thomson Reuters (ISI Indexing), EI-Compendex, DBLP and SCOPUS.
