Started in 2003, RIVF has become a major scientific event for researchers in the field of Computing and Communication Technologies, not only in Vietnam but also worldwide. In the past, the conference series were held at Institut Francophone International, Ha Noi (2003, 2004), Can Tho University (2005), Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (2006), Ha Noi University of Science and Technology (2007), Ho Chi Minh City University of Science (2008), Da Nang University of Technology (2009), Ha Noi National University of Science (2010), Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (2012), Ha Noi National University of Engineering and Technology (2013), and Can Tho University (2015). Since the 9th edition in 2012, RIVF has been held in every 18 months approximately, alternating between the northern half and the southern half of Vietnam. Historically, it was at RIVF 2007 the IEEE Vietnam Section was formed, and since then RIVF has become an IEEE conference. RIVF is covered in Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index.


The RIVF 2016 is the 12th conference in this series. The conference is hosted by ThuyLoi University and held from 07 to 09 November 2016 in Ha Noi, Vietnam. It continues to offer an opportunity for researchers and innovators to discuss problems, share results, identify emerging issues, and establish academic collaborations in various disciplines of computing and communications. Accepted papers will be published in the main conference proceedings registered with IEEE Xplore and referenced in international libraries. Authors of selected best papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication in special issues of some prestigious international journals such as Fundamenata Informatica, Journal of Ambient Intelligence and Humanized Computing, and International Journal of Distributed Systems and Technologies.
