This question already has an answer here:

I have been across this CS conference: http://www.icsis.org/index.html that I never heard of, but it says that:

"Accepted and presented papers will be submitted to WIT Transactions on Information and Communication Technologies (ISSN: 1743-3517). Papers published by WIT Press are referenced by Scopus, Crossref, ProQuest and other notable index and referencing databases."

I have tried to check up some of the papers published there, but none of them are published freely; I mean not even draft versions of the papers. I have checked up lots of them and no luck at all.

Even though it appears in Scimago: http://www.scimagojr.com/journalsearch.php?q=5700191222&tip=sid , but I was wondering if it could be some sort of predatory conference.

Anyone could give me references about this conference?

    If you do not know about a conference, do not send your paper there. It is as simple as that. – Alexandros Feb 15 '15 at 13:25

    Do you know who any of these people are? Do you know anything about the places where they work? Have you ever cited a paper from this conference? Have you ever read a paper from this conference? Has your advisor ever published at this conference? Has your advisor ever heard of this conference? – JeffE Feb 15 '15 at 14:51

    @Alexandros, there's always a first time for learning about a conference. Someone should know about a conference or who the organizers are, but Layla doesn't have to personally have experience with a conference before she submits. – Bill Barth Feb 15 '15 at 15:02

    As a rule of thumb, highly generic CS conferences tend not to be of very high quality. – Dave Clarke Feb 15 '15 at 16:49
