Amman, Jordan, 9-11 October 2019


The 2nd  International Conference on new Trends in Computing Sciences (ICTCS’19) is organized by the King Hussein School for Computing Science at Princess Sumaya University for Technology in partnership with Prince Mohammad bin Fahd University (PMU), and in collaboration with the Scientific Research Fund at the Ministry of Higher Education and the Royal Scientific Society (RSS). Building on the resounding success of its first edition, the goal of the conference is to continue providing international biannual forum where international scientists meet with Jordanian scientists from the different fields of computer science to exchange ideas and information on current trends of research results, system developments, and practical experiences. The conference will include distinguished keynote addresses with speakers from both industry and academia. Papers reporting original and unpublished research are solicited. All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality and relevance through double-blind reviewing. The conference is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Jordan Section and the proceedings of the conference will be published in IEEEXplore digital library and indexed in Scopus. Authors of selected papers will be invited to prepare extended papers for possible publication in the following journals:
      1.  International Arab Journal of Information Technology: indexed in the Science citation index expanded (Thomson Reuters) and Scopus
      2.  Journal of Information and Communication Technology JICT: indexed in the Emerging Science Citation index of the WoS, Scopus
      3. The Jordanian Journal of Computer and Information Technology JJCIT : Indexed In Scopus
