On 25-27 September 2015 193 UN states accepted the agenda which was aimed at the implementation of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The Program contained 17 goals providing interconnection and balance between components of sustainable development (economic, social and ecological). The document emphasizes the need to develop innovation technologies and strengthen international cooperation and partnership in all regions and countries.
In whole the volume of proceedings is in this spirit of the accepted UN agenda. So we offer this set of papers that interconnects scientific ideas and instruments aimed to accelerate the implementation of SDGs through the novels in ICT sphere.
Following the spirit of the accepted UN agenda, this paper collection has captured the reports of an extraordinary two-day III International Scientific Conference "Information Technologies in Science, Management, Social Sphere and Medicine" (ITSMSSM 2016), held in Tomsk, Russian Federation, late May, 2016, The purpose of the conference was to interconnect scientific ideas and instruments aimed to accelerate the implementation of SDGs through the novels in ICT sphere and address its advances to modern society.
The papers were split between the fourteen main conference topics and concomitant sections.
Section 1, "Modelling in Research", includes sophisticated mathematical descriptions for theoretical and experimental issues in physics and engineering.
Section 2, "Information Systems and Technology", provides both practical and theoretical treatises on the issue of communication, intelligence and software design
Section 3, "Information Technologies and Modeling in Management of Production Systems and Personnel Management", begins with recruitment aspects and continues many of those on company evaluation, and management in education and industries.
Section 4, "Information Technologies and Modeling in the Financial Sector", covers diverse subfields in the pertinent sector, mainly investments and general financial market.
Section 5, "Information Technologies and Modeling in Public Administration and Social Sphere", gives a scope on the processes in contemporary governance of modern society.
Section 6, "Information Technologies in Education. E-learning", opens the problems of distance learning systems and their applicableness for Russian Federation.
Section 7, "Network Models and Applications", arms the readers with new methodology in network scope for research and practice.
Section 8, "Mathematical Methods and Information Technologies in Humanities Research", introduces effective ICT based analysis for psychological and social studies.
Section 9, "Computer Graphics and Design", proposes specific optimization algorithms of rendering in medicine and engineering.
Section 10, "Mathematical Methods and Information Technologies In Medicine", presents several solutions for analysis and diagnosis in medical and biological intelligent systems.
Section 11, "Measuring and Modeling of Social Welfare of the Population", exposes some suggestions and results and prognosis in socio-economic development.
Section 12, "Information Technologies and Processes Resource Modelling", makes readers familiar with saving approaches and techniques in context with ICT capabilities.
Section 13, "Information Technology in Telecommunications and Cloud Computing", devotes such a field of cloud as virtualization trend in multilevel distributed systems while
Section 14, "Intelligent Management of Technological Processes and Systems", shares with information data classification.
The papers presented at this conference were selected after extensive reviews by the Program Committee and peer reviewers.
Generous support for the conference was provided by Russian Foundation for Basic Research and Tomsk Polytechnic University.
The intensity with which ICT is advancing in all of the subfields covered by ITSMSSM 2016 demonstrates extreme rapidness. Thus we expect that the future descended conferences will give further stimulation to research similar to this most recent did, as reflected by the contributions presented in this proceedings collection.
