Procedia Computer Science
What is Procedia Computer Science?
Launched in 2009, Procedia Computer Science is an electronic product focusing entirely on publishing high quality conference proceedings. Procedia Computer Science enables fast dissemination so conference delegates can publish their papers in a dedicated online issue on ScienceDirect, which is then made freely available worldwide.
Conference proceedings are accepted for publication in Procedia Computer Science based on quality and are therefore required to meet certain criteria, including quality of the conference, relevance to an international audience and covering highly cited or timely topics. Procedia Computer Science will cover proceedings in all topics of Computer Science with the exception of certain workshops in Theoretical Computer Science, as our Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science http://www.elsevier.com/locate/entcs are the primary outlet for these papers. The journal is indexed in Scopus, the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature.
For authors publishing in Procedia Computer Science, accepted manuscript will be governed by CC BY-NC-ND. For further details see our copyright information.
What does Procedia Computer Science offer authors and conferences organizers?
Procedia Computer Science offers a single, highly recognized platform where conference papers can be hosted and accessed by millions of researchers. Authors then know where to go to keep abreast of the latest developments in their field, and get maximum exposure for their own work.
To ensure discoverability and citability the final online papers are individually metadated, XML versions are optimized for search engines, references are linked, and DOI (Digital Object Identifier) numbers are added.Why should conference organizers choose Procedia Computer Science?
Unlike regular printed conference publications, there is no practical limit to the amount of papers a Procedia Computer Science issue can contain and pricing is affordable, clear and transparent, offering organizers a state of the art platform for their conference in a cost effective and sustainable manner.
Procedia Computer Science offers immediate access for all, with papers online within 8 weeks of acceptance, and free access providing maximum exposure for individual papers and the related conference. Conference delegates can thus access the papers from anywhere on the web during and post conference. Organizers are credited on the actual issue and are fully responsible for quality control, the review process and the content of individual conference papers. To assist conference organizers in the publication process templates (both Latex and Word) are provided.What is the process for submitting conference proceedings to Procedia Computer Science?
Proposals should include a synopsis of why such a Procedia Computer Science issue will have an impact on its community, the (sub) fields covered, and an outline of the related conference (or conferences / satellite events) with links to the conference website and pervious proceedings where possible. Please include a tentative list of the steering committee / program committee, a short description of the conference peer review standards (acceptance rate, reviewer selection, etc) as well as estimates of number of conference delegates and number of papers to be accepted for publication.
Proposals should be prepared using the template herePlease note that we do not accept proposals from individual authors for Procedia titles.
What are the costs associated with Procedia Computer Science?
There is an agreed fee, based on the size of the proceedings, which includes online publication on ScienceDirect and free access after acceptance. In addition to the online version there is the possibility to purchase paper copies, CD-ROMs and USB sticks. Moreover, interactive media possibilities such as webcasts and web seminars can be acquired for extra exposure both before and after the conference.
We are open to discussing sponsoring possibilities at all times. Sponsors can include funding bodies, government agencies and/or industry. Benefits to sponsors include visibility amongst a scientific audience and the opportunity to communicate messages via a peer-reviewed platform. Benefits to authors and conference organizers are the further dissemination of material to an international audience and even more reduced costs to the overall conference budget. What more can Elsevier do to help computer science conference organizers?
We are open to discuss even further collaboration, including but not limited to providing global organizational and administrative services, assisting with the setup of new multidisciplinary meetings. Contact your Elsevier Computer Science Publisher for more information.
