Welcome to SAI 2017 website!

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’17) 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.

The Symposium is co-affiliated with Sixth International Conference on Advances in Computing, Communications and Informatics (ICACCI-2017). ICACCI'17 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc). The Conference is technically supported by three techncial committees of IEEE ComSoc: Technical Committee on Green Communications and Computing (TCGCC), Technical Committee on Communications Switching and Routing (TC CSR) and Information Infrastructure and Networking Technical Committee. 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.

The symposium will be held in Manipal Institute of Technology, Manipal University, Manipal, Karnataka State, India. Manipal is a university town with beauty and natural scenery, one of the most peaceful and soothing travel destinations of India. Situated in the state of Karnataka, Manipal is placed on a plateau between the Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea, Manipal enjoys stunning views from several locations, dotted with fascinating lakes and beaches that serve as attractive tourist points.
