IJCSA Special Issue

A collection of papers is selected among those published in the conference proceedings and presented at the conference. The selection is done collegially based on paper quality and quality of the presentation at the conference. Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in an IJCSA Journal Special Issue.


The authors of these selected papers are invited to prepare and submit their refined and extended versions for review. It is supposed that the refined and extended version of a paper differs substantially (at least by 30 percent) from the paper published in the conference proceedings.

It is also requested that the authors choose a new title for their new (revised and extended) paper.

Please be informed, that the papers are included in the IJCSA Special Issue only based on the result of the new round of reviews. Therefore, the authors invited to the IJCSA Special Issue are strongly suggested to revisit the comments they received in the reviews of their conference papers in order to extend their chances to be accepted for the Special Issue.
