[Dbworld] CFP for IEEE DEST 2011 (Paper Submission Deadline Extended


-----------------------------------Call for Papers -------------------------------------------

5th IEEE International Conference on Digital Ecosystems and Technologies (IEEE-DEST 2011)

Daejeon Convention Center (DCC), Daejeon, Korea

Workshops and Tutorials to be held on 31stMay 2011
Conference Dates: 1st June 2011 – 3rd June 2011

Due to numerous requests we have decided to extend the paper submission deadline of IEEE DEST 2011 to 15th
February 2011

The digital ecosystem is defined as an open, loosely coupled, demand-driven, domain clustered,
agent-based self organized collaborative environment where species/agents form a temporary
coalition (or longer term) for a specific purpose or goals, and everyone is proactive and responsive for
its own benefit or profit. The essence of digital ecosystems is creating value by making connections
through collective intelligence. Digital Ecosystems promote collaboration instead of unbridled
competition and ICT based catalyst effect in a number of domains to produce networked enriched

Digital Ecosystems is empowered by the cyber engineering and human space computing. Cyber engineering
addresses digital horizon in our ecosystems, social technical computing and cyber security, privacy,
trust, risk and accountability, social networks, web 2.0, 3.0, Convergence technologies, web services
and grid technologies. Human space computing is about the study of the technology (Bluetooth, WiFi,
IRDA, RFID, GSM, GPRS, 3G Digital Pens, PDAs, Mobile Phones , VoIP, Video, Voice, Data, other devices) for
improvement of our human lives, not just organizations, business and government. It studies the world we

[Dbworld] Call for Papers: The Fifth International Workshop on Wireless Mesh and Ad Hoc Networks (WiMAN 2011)

The Fifth International Workshop on Wireless Mesh and
             Ad Hoc Networks (WiMAN 2011)

           In conjunction with ICCCN 2011
       Maui, Hawaii, July 31 – August 4, 2011

                 CALL FOR PAPERS

Recently, wireless mesh and ad hoc networking is attracting
significant interest from academia, industry, and standard
organizations. With several favorable characteristics, such as
dynamic self-organization, self-configuration, self-healing, easy
maintenance, high scalability and reliable services, wireless mesh
networks have been advocated as a cost-effective approach to
support high-speed last mile connectivity and ubiquitous broadband
access in the context of home networking, enterprise networking,
or community networking. Despite recent advances, and the
technical accumulations from more than a decade of research
efforts in mobile ad hoc networks, many research issues remain in
all protocol layers of wireless mesh networks. For example, the
introduction of mixed (infrastructure and ad hoc) architecture,
multi-radio, multi-channel, and multi-antenna, have brought new
challenges in the design of physical, MAC, and routing protocols.
New application scenarios, such as all-wireless office, are urging
researchers to address enhanced QoS support and various security
issues in the design of different protocol layers for wireless
mesh networks.

This workshop aims to bring together the technologies and
researchers who share interest in the area of wireless mesh and

[Dbworld] 2. CFP: Special Issue on Service Management & Engineering, Journal of Strategic Information Systems

CFP: Special Issue on Service Management & Engineering: Aligning Business & IT Services

The Journal of Strategic Information Systems

Submission deadline: 1st of March 2011
Target publication date of special issue: 3rd quarter of 2011


An increasing number of activities of public and private organizations are engineered and managed as
services, often creating a new potential for economic growth and welfare through innovation and
productivity gains. In addition to the increasing importance of the service perspective in the business
domain, the service concept has also become very prominent in the IT domain. This is evident in
developments like IT Service Management, Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA), Service Computing,
and various “XYZ-as-a-Service” concepts. While this increasingly blurs the line between a
business view and an IT view of services, these concepts generally have different meanings and refer to
different domains. Thus, there is a need for understanding how these two service worlds meet and how they
change the alignment of business needs and IT capabilities.

This special issue seeks contributions that demonstrate how the IS discipline and related management
disciplines can make an impact to improve the way organiza-tions face the challenges of the progressing
service-oriented economy that increas-ingly merges business- and IT-related service concepts.
Possible contributions may include, but are not limited to the following:

Service Management from an IS Perspective:
•	Service management
•	Service strategy management
•	Service value management

Aim and Scope

Information systems are becoming more and more complex systems,
that have to deal with data and information coming from several
resources, represented in a multitude of formats and with different
degrees of certainty. Furthermore, information systems are more 
and more integrated with location-based services and with new 
Web 2.0 applications and systems, such as blogs, CRM 2.0 services,
social networks.

Thus, technology for Flexible Data Management in Databases and 
Information Systems must be developed.

Several research areas are involved. The database field can provide
