Call for Papers  
The International Conference on Innovations in Information Technology (IIT’20), https://conferences.uaeu.ac.ae/iit20/en/index.shtml , is a premier forum to present and discuss technology advances and research in the field of Information Technology. IIT’20 is the 14th in a series that started back in 2004. IIT’20 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE. The last 11 cycles of the conference were also technically co-sponsored by IEEE, and the proceedings are indexed in IEEE Xplore. IIT’20 aims to bring together leading educators, innovators and entrepreneurs in IT from around the world.  The latest advances in computer science, security and privacy, data science, AI and the internet of things will be explored in the specialized tracks of the IIT’20 conference. Proposals for special sessions are also invited to complement the conference tracks, offering an opportunity for extended form of presentation or interaction than the regular conference program presentations. 

We look forward to your involvement and participation in this year's event.
