NICS 2017

November 24–25, 2017

The NAFOSTED Conference on Information and Computer Science (NICS) is a series of scientific activities supported by the National Foundation for Science and Technology Development (NAFOSTED) to build a durable, innovative and conducive environment for research activities at universities and institutes, improve the research ability of young scientists and establish research groups that meet international standards. The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers from Vietnam and overseas in an academic forum to present and discuss recent advancements and future directions in the field of information and computer science. NICS 2017 will be held in Hanoi, Vietnam during November 24-25, 2017, sponsored by IEEE, and hosted by University of Engineering and Technology, Vietnam National University, Hanoi.

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and IEEE XploreÆ (IEEE Digital Library). A selected number of accepted and personally presented papers will be expanded and revised for possible inclusion in special issues in high quality scientific journals including:
- VNU Journal of Science: Computer Science and Communication Engineering
- REV Journal On Electronics and Communications
