Call for Papers

 

Cooperative Information Systems (CIS) facilitate the cooperation between individuals, organizations, smart devices, and systems of systems, which provide flexible, scalable and intelligent services to enterprises, public institutions and user communities. As a result, people and smart devices can interact, share information and work together across physical barriers typically exploiting cloud-based environments. The Cooperative Information Systems (CIS) paradigm integrates the research results from many related computing areas, such as: distributed systems, coordination technologies, process management, knowledge management, collective decision making, and systems integration technologies, while the core are the organizational and business models that help selecting, shaping and managing at the technological solutions.

 

In recent years, several innovative technologies have emerged: Cloud Computing, Service Oriented Computing, Internet of Things, Linked Open Data, mash-ups, Semantic Systems, Collective Awareness Platforms, Processes as a Service, etc. New technologies have fuelled the need for new forms of large-scale social computing, an even tighter integration of data and knowledge with large-scale collaboration platforms, by crowd-sourcing and community-centric cooperation. The notion of business processes and workflows has evolved from prescriptive approaches to agile, adaptive and goal-driven solutions. Emerging collaboration platforms are introducing flexibility, transparency, dynamic re-planning as key features, supported by new ways of monitoring and managing KPIs, analyzing environmental information, e.g., adopting complex event processing techniques. Building next generation CISs requires technical breakthroughs in terms of dynamic, reliable and secure collaborative information technologies to overcome the tough challenges that traditional approaches fail to face. Several challenges are put in front of us, from the revival of the socio-economic system to reforms of citizens’ engagement in the public institutions, from participatory Open Innovation in modern enterprises to social cohesion and democratic models in a renovated public administration. All such challenges require a deep rethinking of CIS that provide the fundamental technological backbone for addressing specific application domains, such as e-Business, e-Commerce, e-Government, e-Health, and e-Sciences.

 

The CoopIS conference series have established themselves as major international forums for exchanging ideas and results from scientific research and practical experiences in the fields mentioned above.

CALL FOR PAPERS: Cloud and Trusted Computing 2016


Current and future software needs to remain focused towards the development and deployment of large and complex intelligent and networked information systems, required for internet-based and intranet-based systems in organizations. Today software covers a very wide range of application domains as well as technology and research issues. This has found realization through Cloud Computing, Big Data, and data intensive applications. Vital element in such networked information systems are the notions of trust, security, privacy and risk management.


Cloud and Trusted Computing (C&TC 2015) is the 6th International Symposium on Cloud Computing, Trusted Computing and Secure Virtual Infrastructures, organized as a component conference of the OnTheMove Federated Conferences & Workshops. C&TC 2016 will be held in Rhodes, Greece.


The conference solicits submissions from both academia and industry presenting novel research in the context of Cloud Computing, Big Data, and data intensive applications, presenting theoretical and practical approaches to cloud and big data trust, security, privacy and risk management. The conference will provide a special focus on the intersection between cloud, big data, and trust bringing together experts from the three communities to discuss on the vital issues of trust, security, privacy and risk management in Cloud Computing, shedding the light on novel issues and requirements in big data domains. Potential contributions could cover new approaches, methodologies, protocols, tools, or verification and validation techniques. We also welcome review papers that analyze critically the current status of trust, security, privacy and risk management in the cloud. Papers from practitioners who encounter trust, security, privacy and risk management problems and seek understanding are also welcome.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES


Full Papers
Regular paper submissions to Cloud and Trusted Computing 2016 (C&TC 2016) must present original, highly innovative, prospective and forward-looking research in one or more of the themes given above. Full papers must break new ground, present new insight, deliver a significant research contribution and provide validated support for its results and conclusions. Successful submissions typically represent a major advance for the fields of cloud computing and big data, referencing and relating the contribution to existing research work, giving a comprehensive, detailed and understandable explanation of a system, study, theory or methodology, and support the findings with a compelling evaluation and/or validation. Each paper must be submitted as a single PDF file in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science format (no longer than 18 pages in length). Accepted regular papers will be included in the printed conference main proceedings and presented in the paper sessions.

 

Submissions to C&TC 2016 must not be under review by any other conference or publication at any time during the C&TC review cycle, and must not be previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere.

 

Short Papers
Short papers(not longer than 6 pages in length) must report new results and provide support for the results, as a novel and valuable contribution to the field – just like full papers. Short papers are intended for succinct work that is nonetheless in a mature state ready for inclusion in archival proceedings. Short papers will be held to the same standard of scientific quality as full papers, albeit for a shorter presentation, and must still state how they fit with respect to related work, and provide a compelling explanation and validation. Short papers must be submitted as single PDF file in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science format. Accepted short papers will be published in the conference main proceedings and will be presented in the paper sessions of the conference.

 

We plan a journal special issue for which we will invite the best papers (to be confirmed).


Paper submission site: TBA

 

Paper Formatting and Presenting
The paper and notes submission site giving all the relevant submission details is located at: http://otmconferences.org/index.php/paper-submission/authors-kit/camera-ready-instructions-conference-papers. Failure to comply with the formatting instructions for submitted papers or notes will lead to the outright rejection of the paper without review. Failure to commit to presentation at the conference automatically excludes a paper from the proceedings.
