CoopIS 2017 : 25th International Conference on COOPERATIVE INFORMATION SYSTEMS


CoopIS 2017 : 25th International Conference on COOPERATIVE INFORMATION SYSTEMS

24-25 October 2017, Rhodes, Greece


Acceptance rate of CoopIS in recent years was approx. 20%
Proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag

A selection of papers accepted for and presented at CoopIS 2017 will be invited for a special issue in the Elsevier journal Future Generation Computer Systems (Impact Factor : 2.430)


Cooperative Information Systems (CIS) facilitate the cooperation betweenindividuals, 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.

As in previous years, CoopIS’17 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.

Topics that are addressed by CoopIS’17 are logically grouped in four broad thematic areas, and include but are not limited to : Applications from emerging areas of CIS
Methods and principles for the engineering of CIS Architectures and Middleware for CIS User-centric cooperation methods, tools, and platforms

Papers submitted to CoopIS’17 must not have been accepted for publication elsewhere or be under review for another workshop or conference. All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All papers will be refereed by at least three members of the
program committee, and at least two will be experts from industry in the case of practise reports. All submissions must be in English. Submissions must not exceed 18 pages in the final camera-ready paper style. Submissions must be laid out according to the final camera-ready formatting instructions and must be submitted in PDF format.

The final proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS
(Lecture Notes in Computer Science). Author instructions can be found
at : http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html

A selection of papers accepted for and presented at CoopIS 2017 will be
invited for a special issue in the International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems (IJCIS),
http://www.worldscinet.com/ijcis/ by World Scientific Publishing.

Paper submission site : http://otmconferences.org/index.php/paper-submission

Failure to comply with the formatting instructions for submitted papers
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.
