The ACS/IEEE International Conference on Computer Systems and Applications (AICCSA)
is a forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss recent advances
in the field of computer systems and their applications. It is sponsored by the Arab
Computer Society (ACS) and IEEE Computer Society. In 2001, AICCSA was held in Beirut
(Lebanon) and the proceedings were published by IEEE-CS Press.

Authors are invited to submit papers for inclusion in the conference program and
publication in the conference proceedings. In addition to usual research papers,
AICCSA 2003 also encourages papers that deliver any combination of the following
contributions: a survey of the state of the art; an evaluation of an existing
technology; a report on a successful technology transfer initiative; a discussion
of future technological trends.

Areas of interest for these contributions include but are not limited to:

- Algorithmics and Theory,
- Architectures,
- Networking and Wireless Technologies,
- Software,
- Applications.

Panel submissions are encouraged using the same format, and pertaining to the above themes.

AICCSA does not accept papers that have been previously published or are concurrently
being submitted for publication in other venues (conferences, journals), and expects authors
to obtain all the necessary clearances for publication of their paper.  Also, prospective
panel session chairs are expected to contact all their prospective panelists and secure their
commitment to participate. Papers will be subject to peer review, and will be accepted based
on their originality, significance, and clarity. Panel sessions will also be reviewed by the
program committee, and will be selected on the basis of their general interest to the diverse
audience of the conference.  Papers must not exceed 6000 words, and panel session proposals
must not exceed 2000 words. Accepted papers and panel session proposals will be published in
the proceedings. Also, submitted papers that are deemed of good quality but could not be
accepted as regular papers will be included in Poster sessions, and will be given token space
in the proceedings.
