International Symposium on Advances in Applied Informatics (SAI’16)

Applied Informatics covers the theory and application of informatics in various scientific, technological, engineering and social fields. The progress of informatics has been incredible, obliging us to adapt to various new needs, in order to provide solutions to such a wide expansion of areas for which utilisation of information and communication technologies is demanded. However, the use of informatics to the general public has not been fully established, and is broadly interdisciplinary. The symposium on Advances in Applied Informatics (SAI’16) aims to provide a venue for presenting high quality original research papers on various aspects of applied informatics. The symposium focuses on business informatics, education informatics, environmental informatics, agricultural informatics, health informatics and security informatics.

SAI'16 invites original and unpublished work from individuals active in the broad theme of the symposium. Authors should submit their papers online using EDAS. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EDAS to log on. Further guidelines for submission are posted at:

All papers that conform to submission guidelines will be peer reviewed and evaluated based on originality, technical and/or research content/depth, correctness, relevance to conference, contributions, and readability. The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Acceptance of papers will be communicated to authors by email. At least one full paying author of each accepted paper must register for the Conference before the indicated deadline. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

Authors are invited to submit original unpublished work that is not currently under consideration for publication elsewhere via the various tracks hosted by SAI’16.
