The 2nd International Conference on Complexity, Future Information Systems and Risk (COMPLEXIS 2017 - steering committee cordially invites you to submit a paper to the COMPLEXIS 2017 Conference, to be held in Porto, Portugal. The deadline for paper submission has been extended to December 15, 2016 due to numerous requests.

COMPLEXIS – the International Conference on Complexity, Future Information Systems and Risk, aims at becoming a yearly meeting place for presenting and discussing innovative views on all aspects of Complex Information Systems, in different areas such as Informatics, Telecommunications, Computational Intelligence, Biology, Biomedical Engineering and Social Sciences. Information is pervasive in many areas of human activity – perhaps all – and complexity is a characteristic of current Exabyte-sized, highly connected and hyper dimensional, information systems. COMPLEXIS 2017 is expected to provide an overview of the state of the art as well as upcoming trends, and to promote discussion about the potential of new methodologies, technologies and application areas of complex information systems, in the academic and corporate world.

Submitted papers will be subject to a double-blind review process. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library ( SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef (

Best paper awards will be distributed during the conference closing session. Please check the website for further information (

Workshops, Special sessions, Tutorials as well as Demonstrations dedicated to other technical/scientific topics are also envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies or researchers interested in holding a tutorial are invited to contact the conference secretariat. Workshop chairs and Special Session chairs will benefit from logistics support and other types of support, including secretariat and financial support, to facilitate the development of a valid idea.

COMPLEXIS 2017 will be held in conjunction with IoTBDS (2nd International Conference on Internet of Things, Big Data and Security -, CLOSER (7th International Conference on Cloud Computing and Services Science -, SMARTGREENS (6th International Conference on Smart Cities and Green ICT Systems - and VEHITS (3rd International Conference on Vehicle Technology and Intelligent Transport Systems - in Porto, Portugal. Registration to COMPLEXIS will enable free attendance to any sessions of IoTBDS, CLOSER, SMARTGREENS and VEHITS conferences as a non-speaker.

We hope to welcome you in Porto, Portugal next April, 2017! Should you have any question please don't hesitate contacting me.
