Welcome to ICCIT 2020!

International Conference on Computer and Information Technology (ICCIT) actually started its journey in the year 1998 and was held at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET). ICCIT has evolved from the National Conference on Computer and Information Systems (NCClS) which was held in 1997 at the Dhaka University, Bangladesh. Since 1998, the conference is being organized every year by different public and private universities. This is the longest running IEEE sponsored peer-reviewed conference in Bangladesh.

ICCIT 2020 will be held at Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology, Tejgaon, Dhaka, Bangladesh. All researchers are encouraged to prepare for submissions at ICCIT 2020.

This year’s ICCIT is being hosted to provide a unique opportunity for the computer and information technology professionals, scientists, engineers, educators, researchers and students from all over the world to exchange their scientific ideas, views and thoughts with fellow researchers and participants. This conference addressed some of the more relevant and state-of-the-art issues and topics involved in computer science and engineering and information technology.
