About IIT'15

The International Conference on Innovations in Information Technology 2015 (IIT’15) is a forum that addresses the latest ideas in information technology (IT).

IIT’15 is an excellent opportunity to present theoretical, experimental as well as visionary research on various IT topics. The theme of IIT’15 is Smart Cities and all of the software technologies that are required to provide better living conditions in the cities of tomorrow. This theme will be reflected by a number of tracks which focus on different aspects of related technologies such as big data and cloud computing, collaborative platforms, communication infrastructures, smart health, sustainable development and energy management. All of those themes will be brought together by unifying invited keynotes and panels.

Ensuring a high quality conference requires accepting papers that pass a rigorous peer review process. A large number of papers were submitted to the conference: The acceptance rate is 35% for the technical papers, 33% for tutorials and 28% for students posters. The papers, presented in the conference, came from 27 countries around the globe, from academia, industry and government.
