******* Collecting, Processing, Analysing and Storing Data/Information to Support Human Activities *********


**** Important Dates *****
1 August 2020 : Full Papers (10 pages), Short papers, demos and work in progress (5 pages)
25 September 2020: Acceptance Notification
20 October 2020: Camera-Ready Papers and Authors Registration
30 Nov - 2 Dec 2020: Conference Dates

***** Publication *****
ALL accepted iiWAS2020 papers will be published by ACM International Conference Proceedings Series and the supplemental proceedings (ISBN: pending ) which will be archived in the ACM Digital Library, and indexed by DBLP, Ei Compendex, Scopus and submitted to be reviewed by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI Web of Science). Selected high-quality papers will be invited to be published, after revision and extension, in special issues of international journals. 

**** Scope *****
Data and information are crucial in providing evidence based decision making in many aspect of human activities, as an individual or as a group. The way information and communication technology are used to collect, process, analysis and store data has always evolves. New techniques are invented, existing techniques are improved and old techniques are integrated to the new. Each of these provided some challenges and opportunities to our research community in finding the best way to meet these challenges. iiWAS provides research community with the opportunity to share and discuss their ideas. 

Recently, iiWAS has been held in Munich (2019), Yogyakarta (2018), Salzburg (2017), Singapore (2016), Brussels (2015), Hanoi (2014), Vienna (2013), Bali (2012), Ho Chi Minh City (2011), Paris (2010), Kuala Lumpur (2009), and Linz (2008). This year, iiWAS2020, will be held in Chiang Mai, Thailand, the city centre for northern Thailand  arts and cultures

**** Submissions *****
iiWAS accepted four different types of contributions:
- Original theoretical work:  The contributions are expected to show original work that provide foundations to further progress research in the area. Rigorous proofs and/or performance measurements are expected for this type of contribution.
- Real life case study:  The contributions are expected to show a real life case study of an adopted concept and technology. The analysis of the case study should provide an original insight and findings, backing up by data collected from experiments and/or observation.
- Experimental work:  The contributions are expected to show reporting of rigorous comparative experiments of existing algorithms/systems to provide insight to the current state of the art in a research domain.
- Lessons learnt reports: The contributions are expected to show lessons learnt from adoption of complex technology integration or implementation.
