We are pleased to invite you to submit the original paper(s) for The 11th IEEE-RIFV International Conference on Computing and Communication Technologies.

The IEEE-RIVF 2015 conference is organized by CanTho University, Vietnam. The conference aims to provide a high-level, international forum for scientists, researchers and innovators to share their new ideas and achievements, identify the emerging issues, and establish academic collaborations in various disciplines of computing and communications.

This year, an EU-ASEAN COOPERATIONS & RESEARCH ON Internet of Things and Open Platforms event will be co-located with RIVF where presenters from IERC and many EU FP7 projects will present their needs and success stories of collaboration. Therefore, scientific contributions in the domain of Internet of Things are welcome and an IoT session will be dedicated to accepted papers.
