Call for Papers

Scope

DSIC’18 – The 2018 International Conference on Digital Science, to be held at Montenegro, 19 – 21 October 2018, is an international forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, results, experiences and concerns in the several perspectives of Digital Science.

The main idea of this Conference is that the world of science is unified and united allowing all scientists/practitioners to be able to think, analyze and generalize their thoughts. The concept of this conference is that all scientists have the ability to think, analyze, and extend knowledge using digital technology, and that technology allows researchers to break the barriers between disciplines.

DSIC aims efficiently disseminate original research results in natural, social, art&humanities sciences. This Conference enables fast dissemination so conference participants can publish their papers in print and electronic format, which is then made available worldwide and accessible by millions of researchers.

DSIC covers publications on many multidisciplinaire levels but each accepted paper might be presented in the appropriate thematic Conference session of narrow specialization. The conference organizers believe that all scientists selected to present their work are important in their own right, therefore additional keynote speakers are unnecessary.
