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

 

Cooperative Information Systems (CIS) facilitate the cooperation between individuals, organisations, smart devices, and systems of systems, by providing 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. The domain of CIS integrates research results from different related computing areas, such as: distributed systems, coordination technologies, collaborative decision making, enterprise architecture, business process management and conceptual modelling.


In recent years, several innovative technologies have emerged: Cloud Computing, Service Oriented Computing, the Internet of Things, Linked Open Data, Semantic Systems, Collective Awareness Platforms, Block Chain, Processes as a Service, etc, that enable the next generation of CISs.

 

In developing the next generation CISs, research is needed towards (1) the applicability and use of the above mentioned innovative technologies, (2) approaches to develop CISs in particular catering towards the multitude of stakeholders involved in the development of socio-cyber-physical systems, and (3) associated modelling techniques to express and analyse the different aspects of these systems in cohesion.

 

The CoopIS conference series has established itself as a major international forum for the exchange of ideas and results from scientific research and practical experiences in the fields mentioned above.

 

As in previous years, CoopIS'18 will be part of a joint event with other conferences, in the context of the OTM Federated Conferences ("OnTheMove"), covering different aspects of distributed information systems.
