Special Issue

A special issue of Springer Nature Complex Adaptive Systems Modeling will be launched in parallel to the track. Submissions can be made to either FIT 17 or the special issue or both. In case paper is submitted to both, then the paper submitted to FIT 17 must not be longer than 5 pages. In the case of dual submission, it is also imperative that the paper submitted to CASM should not have an overlap of more than 40%.

Fee waivers 3 high quality Thematic series papers will be awarded full fee waivers. Waivers MUST be requested before submission by sending an email to

Deadline for the Special Issue papers: 30 Sep 2017
