Accepted papers will have a chance to appear in international journals. Furthermore, authors will be invited to submit extended versions of their manuscripts for consideration in:

  • Journal of Information Assurance and Security (JIAS), USA (Emerging Sources Citation Index, Thomson)

  • International Journal of Computer Information Systems and Industrial Management (Scopus indexed)

  • Journal of Networking and Innovative Computing (JNIC), USA

  • International Journal of Reasoning-based Intelligent Systems (IJRIS) (Scopus, Compendex, DBLP etc.)

Meeting the standards

Events like this normally have strict criteria for paper reviews. A well-presented document raises the possibility of a researcher’s work to be accepted. 

Writing Lab is an initiative within TecLabs that is dedicated to the development of the culture of research in Educational Innovation and to the enhancement of the academic production of the faculty members at Tecnologico de Monterrey.

Here are the options and solutions Writing Lab has to offer.

  • A solid methodological approach to the assisted professor’s research

  • Thorough literature search

  • Consultancy for finding the right journals for assisted professor’s manuscripts

  • English translation and editing services

  • Support for planning a new manuscript

  • Improvement of assisted professor’s in-process research, review articles, book chapters and conference papers

  • Enhancement of assisted professor’s presentation skills

  • Ideas for structuring ongoing research and manuscripts

  • Mastering skills to absorb feedback from journals, make appropriate manuscript revisions and address reviewers' comments.

Tec de Monterrey faculty members will be able to apply for a Writing Lab workshop specially designed to help them create or polish their work for submission at the congress before the deadline. The workshop is organized by Dr. Kingsley Okoye, Dr. Samira Hosseini and the director of TecLabs José Escamilla de Los Santos.
