COMPSAC is the IEEE Signature Conference on Computers, Software, and Applications. It is one of the major international forums for academia, industry, and government to discuss research results, advancements and future trends in computer and software technologies and applications. The technical program includes keynote addresses, research papers, industrial case studies, panel discussions, fast abstracts, doctoral symposium, poster sessions, and a number of workshops on emerging important topics.

Building on the themes of highly successful recent COMPSAC conferences, the main theme of the 36th conference is "Trustworthy Software Systems for the Digital Society". Creating the digital society calls for all aspects of computing, software development, software systems engineering, and applications. To sustain it, however, trust in systems is of paramount importance, thus the need for trustworthy software systems. Foundations, methodologies, architectures, and mechanisms that support modeling, design, implementation, and evaluation of trustworthy software systems and applications are of great concern.

All accepted papers will be published in the electronic proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society, indexed through INSPEC and EI Index and automatically included in the IEEE digital library.
