The editors of the Journal of Convergence, An International Journal invite your contributions. Notes for contributors can be found at our web site: http://joc-journal.org/

The Journal of Convergence covers the breadth of research in convergence technology and its applications. The journal seeks to provide an opportunity for researchers from computer science, engineering and mathematical backgrounds to disseminate and exchange knowledge in the rapidly emerging field of Convergence Technologies, Theories, Application, and Services. It will comprehensively cover to a) Computing and Communications; b) Security and Trust; c) Web and Multimedia; d) IT Managements and Services; e) Consumer Electronics.

The main focus of the journal is to publish original contributions, including full papers and letter papers. In order to provide timely dissemination of ideas whose evaluation may require significant time and impose publication delays, one of the unique features of this journal is to allow authors the publication of promising concepts and algorithms with either partial or without prior experimental evaluation.
