Conference Topics


Who should submit papers ?

Papers are solicited in two categories: regular research papers and industrial experience papers. 
The category should be clearly identified.

  • Regular research papers should contain original research concepts and results in one or more areas relevant to cooperative information systems.
  • Industrial experience papers should describe technical or key business issues and lessons learned in developing, applying, and deploying relevant concepts, highlighting aspects of cooperation and interoperation.
Submitted papers should not be longer than 10 pages according to the IEEE Proceedings Format (including figures, tables, references, etc.). Submissions should be unpublished and should not be under consideration by another conference or journal. A few papers will be selected for publication, after appropriate expansion and review, in the International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems.

This year conference main theme will be “Architectures and Methodologies for Effective Web-based Cooperative Information Systems” and we particularly welcome papers related to this theme.
