Beirut, Lebanon


The International Conference on Data and Smart Systems Engineering (DSSE 2018) will be held on July 9-12, 2018 at the American University of Beirut (AUB), Beirut, Lebanon. Through its technical program, the conference aims to provide an outstanding opportunity for both academic and industrial communities alike to address new trends and challenges, emerging technologies and progress in standards on topics relevant to today's fast moving areas of Data and Smart Systems Engineering. This conference will discuss new results in the field of Data and Smart Systems Engineering.


DSSE 2018 will offer oral, poster sessions, tutorials and, professional meetings. The program of the DSSE 2018 Conference intends to foster interaction so as to open the way to future cooperation between participants. All researchers and teams who develop research or recently became interested in the domains of data and smart systems engineering are invited. Submitted papers are expected to cover state-of-the-art technologies, theoretical concepts, standards, products implementation, ongoing research projects, and innovative applications of data and smart systems technologies use.
