Call for Papers

The annual FDSE conference is a premier forum designed for researchers, scientists, and practitioners interested in state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice activities in data, information, knowledge, and security engineering to explore cutting-edge ideas, present and exchange their research results and advanced data-intensive applications, as well as to discuss emerging issues. At the annual FDSE, the researchers, scientists and practitioners are not only able to share research solutions to problems of today’s data and security engineering themes, but also able to identify new issues and directions for future related research and development work.

After the last six successful events, FDSE 2014 and FDSE 2015 (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam), FDSE 2016 (Can Tho City, Vietnam), FDSE 2017 and FDSE 2018 (Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam), FDSE 2019 (Nha Trang, Vietnam), FDSE 2020 will be held from November 25-27, 2020, in Quy Nhon City, Binh Dinh, Vietnam. The conference will be held in the campus of Quy Nhon University (QNU).


All accepted papers will be published by Springer Verlag in one of the following volumes:

Lecture Notes in Computer Science series (LNCS). The LNCS from Springer is a well-known series of computer science books that covers research and development from all areas of computer science. Further details of the list of forthcoming proceedings that will be published in LNCS can be found at

Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS). The CCIS series is devoted to the publication of proceedings of computer science conferences. Its aim is to efficiently disseminate original research results in informatics in printed and electronic form. More details about this series can be referred at

Previous FDSE Proceedings have been indexed in Scopus, EI Compendex, DBLP, and listed in Conference Proceeding Citation Index (CPCI) of Thomson Reuters. FDSE 2020 proceedings will also be submitted to those indexing systems.

Selected papers, after further revision and extension, will be considered for publication in one of two special issues of the prestigious international journals:

International Journal of Web Information Systems (IJWIS). IJWIS journal provides a descriptive, analytical, and comprehensive assessment of factors, trends, and issues in the ever-changing field of Web Information Systems. IJWIS is indexed and abtracted in Scopus, ESCI, Cabell's Directory, DBLP, EI Compendex, Inspec, etc.

Springer Nature Computer Science (SNCS). SNCS is a broad-based, peer reviewed journal that publishes original research in all the disciplines of computer science including various inter-disciplinary aspects. SNCS is indexed and abstracted in ACM Digital Library, DBLP, EBSCO Discovery Service, Google Scholar, etc.

More information of the previous special issues can be found in here.
