Welcome Message

Virtual Conference: After evaluating the current COVID-19 situation and associated travel restrictions, the conference will be held virtually on 20-22 December 2021 as the safety and well-being of all conference participants are of the highest priority. Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore Digital Library after they are presented at the virtual conference.

CIT-2021 is the 20th edition of the highly successful International Conference on Computer and Information Technology. The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for scientists, engineers and researchers to discuss and exchange novel ideas, results, experiences and work-in-process on all aspects of computer and information technology. CIT has become a major platform for researchers and industry practitioners from different fields of computer and information technology. Each year, CIT attendees appreciate and benefit from multidisciplinary exchanges in computer and information technology. In previous years, CIT has attracted many high quality research papers spanning over the various aspects of information technology, computing science and computer engineering. These papers highlight foundational work that strives to push beyond limits of existing computer technologies, including experimental efforts, innovative systems, and investigations that identify weaknesses in existing IT services.

CIT-2021 is planned to be hosted in London, UK. However, if the COVID-19 situation and associated travel restrictions remain, the conference will be held virtually. All accepted papers will be submitted to IEEE Xplore and will be submitted for indexing by Engineering Index (EI). The authors of selected best papers will be invited post conference to extend their contributions for special issues of prestigious journals to be planned in conjunction with the conference.
