The 10th International Conference on Information Technology in Asia (CITA`17) is a premier international conference dedicated to address the advances in Information Technology, which over the years has become a leading interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary forum to bring academia and industry together in exchanging and sharing their most recent innovations, trends, challenges and adopted solutions.

CITA `17 will be held on 23rd – 24th May 2017, with the proposed theme of “Technology Transforming Lives”, emphasising on technologies that are making a difference in the global communities in improving their livelihoods.

CITA `17 will take place in Kuching, the capital of the Malaysian state of Sarawak on the Borneo Island. Kuching is a bustling, diverse city of old colonial buildings and modern towers. It is situated at the banks of the Sarawak River on the North-Western part of the island of Borneo. Kuching is the largest city in the entire island of Borneo and is the fourth biggest city in Malaysia. Along its Sarawak River waterfront is an esplanade with majestic views of 19th century landmarks: The Astana, the former palace of the White Rajahs, and Fort Margherita, a fort built to thwart pirates back in the 1800's.

For CITA `17, we seek research papers that report on new approaches, methods, systems, and solutions to benefit the global communities and their livelihoods. The list of conference tracks can be found inside the Call for Papers, which can be downloaded here.
