JCST Special Section on Software Systems 2020

The Journal of Computer Science & Technology, a CCF B ranked journal, is going to have a special section on software systems. Software systems have played critical roles in scientific research, business and society with research focuses on construction, operation, maintenance, and assessment of software systems. The special section is an effort to encourage and promote research to address challenges from the software systems perspective and its goal is to present the state-of-the-art and high-quality original research papers in the area of software systems.

The JCST’s special section of software systems covers two main themes:

  • Internetware and Beyond, aiming to provide a forum where researchers and professionals from multiple disciplines and domains share ideas to explore and address the challenges brought by Internetware. It solicits submissions describing results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual, and experimental software engineering research related to Internetware.
  • Dependable Software Engineering, soliciting submissions describing theoretical results, tools, and applications, related to applying formal methods in improving the quality of computer software and systems.

Accepted papers to the Dependable Software Engineering theme will be presented and discussed at the SETTA 2020 conference.

Papers need to be submitted before April 10, 2020; for more details about the themes, submission instructions and deadlines, see the official JCST CFP page.

Call for Applications: 2016 Call for Applications for the CAS-TWAS President’s Fellowship

According to an agreement between the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and The World Academy of Sciences (TWAS) for the advancement of science in developing countries, up to 200 students/scholars from all over the world will be sponsored to study in China for doctoral degrees for up to 4 years.

This CAS-TWAS President’s Fellowship Programme provides students/scholars that are non-Chinese citizens an opportunity to pursue doctoral degrees at the University of Chinese Academy of Sciences (UCAS), the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) or Institutes of CAS around China.

Under the terms of the CAS-TWAS agreement, travel from their home countries to China will be provided to the fellowship awardees in order to begin the fellowship in China (one trip only per student/scholar). TWAS will select 80 awardees from developing countries to support their international travel, while CAS will support the other 120. Visa fee will also be covered (once only per awardee) as a lump sum of USD 65 when all the awardees are on site in China. Any awardee on site in China, the host country, at the time of application will NOT be eligible for any travel or visa reimbursement.

Thanks to generous contribution of CAS, fellowship awardees will receive a monthly stipend (to cover accommodation and other living expenses, local travel expenses and health insurance) of RMB 7,000 or RMB 8,000 from CAS through UCAS/USTC, depending on whether he/she has passed the qualification test arranged by UCAS/USTC for all doctoral candidates after admission. All awardees will also be provided tuition and admission fee waivers.
