HIASCIT 2018: Horizons for Information Architecture, Security and Cloud Intelligent Technology
Cloud computing has opened new horizons in the group work, with the possibility of increasing the quality of the products and/or services, in very short timeframes and with lower costs. Besides, there is a reduction of the costs for the maintenance of servers and/or the updating of the versions of the operative services, special applications, etc., with which the local and international users work daily inside a private, public or mixed institution. The safety and privacy of the data which are in the cloud constitutes a key element in the reliability of the interchange of original ideas for the development of avant-garde projects.
ADNTIIC 2018: 9th International Conference on Advances in New Technologies, Interactive Interfaces and Communicability
The user interface is the environment par excellence where the latest breakthroughs in the formal and factual sciences converge. In the design of the current and future interactive systems, the presentation of the content on the screen is the key to the success of the rest of the components which make up an avant-garde computer science structure.

3rd International Conference on Evolution of the Sciences, Informatics, Human Integration and Scientific Education ( ESIHISE 2018 )
The modernization of the sciences and education is and will be one of the cornerstones for all the inhabitants of our planet. Those who from the 1980 have been behind this issue have been direct and indirect witnesses of great breakthroughs and some recoils. These ups and downs are due to exogenous or endogenous factors, to the daily reality of the formal and factual sciences. Many of those factors are beyond the control of all those scientists and professors, who, in a modest and honest way, collaborate in the development of the quality of life of all humankind.
RDINIDR 2018 will be composed of research presentations, keynote lectures, invited presentations, workshops, doctoral consortium, demo session, research-in-progress, poster presentations, etc.
HCITOCH 2018 will be composed of research presentations, keynote lectures, invited presentations, doctoral consortium, demos, research-in-progress, poster presentations, and parallel sessions.
The ACM SIGGRAPH has announced the slate of Executive Committee candidates for the 2018 election. Below are the candidates for the positions of Treasurer and the two Director at Large positions. Voting will begin in June, with the new Members taking office in September.
Three ACM SIGGRAPH members were recently named to the 2017 class of ACM Fellows and will be honored at the annual awards banquet June 23 in San Francisco. ACM fellows represent less than one percent of the organization’s overall membership of talented and inventive researchers and academicians in the wide-ranging computer science field. To be elected an ACM fellow is a testament to that individual’s hard work and pioneering contributions in computing.
Massive Collaborative Animation Projects (MCAP)
The Massive Collaborative Animation Projects are animation productions consisting of students and faculty members from various schools, worldwide, working together to deliver a short animation. MCAP consist of multiple production phases allowing students from different areas of study to contribute their talents.
