The 2021 International Conference on Progress in Informatics and Computing (PIC-2021) will be held on December 17-19, 2021.
PIC-2021 is the eighth edition of the PIC conference series. It provides a forum for researchers and practitioners in academia and industry to discuss the progress, challenges, experience and trends of the theoretical and application issues in computer science, artificial intelligence, big data analysis, and software engineering, exchange ideas, share knowledge and promote future cooperation.
This year's conference will be held online, as it was last year, to deal with the uncertainty of the covid-19 epidemic. In addition to the online conference, offline meetings will be held in Shanghai/Tampere to facilitate face-to-face communications among local nearby participants. The conference is sponsored by the IEEE Beijing Section, Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, co-organized by Shanghai University of Finance and Economics, and Tampere University. All accepted papers will be published in the IEEE categorized conference proceedings and will be submitted to EI Compendex, as well as IEEE Xplore. Extended versions of good papers will be recommended for publication in several international SCI, EI and CSCD indexed journals.
