The 10th International Conference on Emerging Technologies 2014 (ICET 2014) will be held at National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences (FAST-NU), Islamabad, Pakistan from December 1-2, 2014, under the umbrella of IEEE Islamabad Section. ICET 2014 will attract leading researchers from academia and practitioners from industry in Pakistan and abroad to share their innovative ideas, experiences, and cutting edge research. We invite authors to submit high quality original papers in the following two categories:

Technical Papers: We solicit original and high quality papers that discuss the technical solutions to significant research problems. The paper should provide a clear motivation for solving the problem being addressed, the relevant literature review, and the proposed scientific solution. The paper should also highlight the benefits of the proposed solution. Any study conducted for evaluation must be rigorous, reproducible, and clearly communicated.

Industry Experience/Application Papers: For the first time in Pakistan, ICET 2014 is soliciting industry experience/application papers. We welcome high quality papers from industry practitioners describing experiences of applying various methods, tools, or techniques in any of the conference areas. The objective of such papers is to stimulate discussions and exchanging ideas between industry and research participants of the conference.
