We are pleased to invite the academic and business community to submit their papers to CISTI'2016 - 11th Iberian Conference on Information Systems and Technologies, to be held in Gran Canaria, Canary Islands, Spain, between the 15th and 18th of June 2016. Authors are encouraged to submit original scientific contributions such as state-of-art reviews and new research perspectives, groundbreaking ideas and/or architectures, solutions and/or applications for real problems, empirical and/or evaluation works, case studies, etc., in conformity with the themes of this Conference.

Four types of papers can be submitted:

Full paper: Finished or consolidated R&D works, to be included in one of the Conference themes. These papers are assigned  a 6-page limit.

Short paper: Ongoing works with relevant preliminary results, opened to discussion. These papers are assigned a 4-page limit.

Poster paper: Initial work with relevant ideas, opened to discussion. These papers are assigned a 2-page limit.

Company paper: Companies' papers  that show practical experience, R & D, tools, etc., focused in some topics of the conference. These articles are abstracts with a maximum of 2 pages.

Papers submitted for the Scientific Committee’s evaluation must not include any information leading to the authors’ identification. Therefore, the authors’ names, affiliations and bibliographic references should not be included in the early version. This information should only be included in the final version.

Submitted papers must not have been published and must not be under review for any other conference and national or international publication.

Papers must comply with the format standard and be written in Portuguese, Spanish or English.

All papers will be subjected to a “blind review” by at least two members of the Scientific Committee.

Full papers can be accepted as short papers or poster papers only. Similarly, short papers can be accepted as poster papers only. In these two cases, the authors will be allowed to maintain the original number of pages in the proceedings publication.

The authors of accepted poster papers must also build and print a poster to be exhibited during the Conference. This poster must follow an A1 or A2 vertical format. The Conference includes Work Sessions where these posters are presented and orally discussed, with a 5-minute limit per poster.

The authors of accepted full papers will dispose of a 15-minute presentation in the Conference Work Session, and approximately 5 minutes of discussion will follow each presentation. The authors of accepted short papers and company papers will dispose of an 11-minute presentation in the Conference Work Session, and approximately 4 minutes of discussion will follow each presentation.

C) SSAAT - Software Systems, Architectures, Applications and Tools

D) CNMPS - Computer Networks, Mobility and Pervasive Systems

To ensure that the contribution (full paper, short paper, poster paper or company paper) is published in the Proceedings, at least one of the authors must be fully registered by the 11th of April, and the paper must comply with the suggested layout and page-limit. Additionally, all recommended modifications must be addressed by the authors before they submit the final version.
