The ICED 13 program committee will organise various topics that cover substantial, original
and previously unpublished research. The ICED 13 sessions are composed of plenary sessions,
podium sessions, discussion sessions and workshop sessions from both academia
and industry based on rigorous analysis or argumentation.
