Information technology (IT) has influenced every aspect of our lives and cultures. Without IT-based applications, it would be difficult to keep information stored securely, process information efficiently and communicate conveniently. IT will not only continue playing a key role in the convergence of computing, communications and all other aspects of computational science and applications but will also influence the future's roadmap in many significant areas. IJITCC addresses the theories and practical applications of this future generation information technology (FGIT).


 Topics covered include

  • Hybrid information technology
  • Digital convergence
  • Multimedia convergence
  • Pervasive/ubiquitous computing and systems
  • Cloud computing
  • Trusted computing and security in convergence
  • Intelligent communications and networks
  • Bio-inspired computing

More on this journal...

IJITCC publishes state-of-the-art international research in all areas of information technology, communications and convergence (ITCC). It aims to bring together the researchers from academia and industry as well as practitioners to share ideas, problems and solutions relating to the multifaceted aspects of ITCC, and to disseminate the most innovative research and development of all aspects of ITCC, including their models, services, and novel applications associated with their utilisation.


In accordance with this journal’s characteristics and coverage, each paper will be of interest to many clients inside and outside the IT department, but it will be of immediate and compelling value to the following roles:

  • Research Groups: specialists in the institution or the university who study and develop new technology
  • End User Organisations: emerging technology development groups, strategic technology planners, strategic business planners, CTOs, CIOs, lead architects and other senior IT staff
  • Vendor and Service Provider Organisations: strategic product planners and marketers in product or service provider companies, including consulting and sourcing organisations
  • Investors: long-term investors

IJITCC readers can understand future dynamic technologies and business changes and develop new products and services in order for their organisations to flourish.

IJITCC serves as a medium to report, via original papers, survey papers, technical reports, extended/improved conference papers, experience, case studies, and trend-setting ideas on advances in ITCC as well as potential future directions and issues. Furthermore, Special Issues devoted to important topics in future generation information technology, communications and convergence will occasionally be published.
