 The Annual International Computers, Software & Applications Conference (COMPSAC), sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and also technically sponsored by Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ), is one of the premium international forums for academia, industry, and government to discuss research results, advancements and future trends in computer and software technologies and applications. Among a wide range of topics covered by COMPSAC, several symposia cover a broad range of networking and computing technologies as well as advanced applications and services. COMPSAC 2018 is held in Tokyo, Japan, on July 23-27, 2018.
