  The International Symposium on Community-centric Systems (CcS 2020) is organized by the Research Center for Community-centric Systems, Tokyo Metropolitan University. The conference will be held in Tokyo, Japan, from September 23rd to 26th, 2020. The conference offers a unique and interesting platform for scientists, engineers and practitioners throughout the world to present and share their recent research and innovative ideas on community-centric systems (CcS) that can improve quality of life (QOL) and quality of community (QOC).

[Update] All conference content have been uploaded and will continue to be available on-demand until 26 October 2020, via the virtual platform:

Dear participants,
We are excited to announce that the CcS 2020 program book is uploaded. Kindly go to Program tab from more details.
We have opted for a format where each submitted paper or talk would take the form of a pre-recorded video, available during the conference's original dates and on-demand after the conference ends, for oral presentations.

Please carefully review all details below concerning scheduling, preparation of the presentation, delivery of the presentation and access to conference content.

CcS 2020 Program Outline available HERE

We request you to prepare and upload a video of your presentation, kidnly refer HERE for the guidelines.
This will be regarded as a substitute for your attendance at the meeting, and is a condition that your paper stay in IEEE Xplore.

We encourage you to use the Conference PowerPoint template available HERE and virtual background available HERE

The safety and health of all conference participants is our priority. Upon reviewing and analyzing the announcements, advice, and news released by relevant national departments, we have made the decision, that CcS 2020 will continue as scheduled on 23-25 September, by being converted to an exciting, entirely virtual conference, and will not be physically held in Tokyo.

Author Presentations:
In order to facilitate our authors, CcS 2020 will be providing the ability for accepted authors to present their work via an interactive online platform. These presentations will be made available to all paid attendees and accepted and presented papers will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore.

    The maximum length for the manuscript is typically 6 pages in IEEE manuscript templates ( Accepted papers that are not physically presented by one of the authors at CcS 2020 will be excluded from the IEEE Xplore. Submission should be made via the web submission page. Selected quality paper will be recommended for CcS 2020 special issues of Journal of Advanced Computational Intelligence and Intelligent Informatics with further review.


    The conference features special sessions focusing on new research topics and innovative applications. Papers in these sessions undergo a regular review process as those in general sessions. A special session has to contain at least four papers. Prospective organizers are invited to contact special session chairs to propose tracks with the title of the session, its scope, list of topics, and organizer names (application form), by March 1, 2020. Each special session may have an invited talk as well. If the organizer(s) is(are) interested in an invited talk, please contact the special session chair (Zhaojie Ju, University of Portsmouth, UK) and special session co-chairs (Takenori Obo, Tokyo Polytechnic University, Japan and Kurnianingsih, Politeknik Negeri Semarang, Indonesia).
