INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INTELLIGENT NETWORKING AND COLLABORATIVE
SYSTEMS (INCoS 2009).

November 4-6, 2009
Open University of Catalonia
Barcelona, Spain

Submission deadline: **June 25, 2009**

CONFERENCE SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES

With the fast development of the Internet, we are experiencing a shift
from the traditional sharing of information and applications as the
main purpose of the Web to an emergent paradigm, which locates people
at the very center of networks and exploits the value of people's
connections and relations. Web 2.0 has come to play a major role in
this context by enabling a new generation of social networks and
web-based communities and dramatically changing the way we use and
interact with the Web. Social network analysis is also a rapidly
growing field to investigate the dynamics and structure of intelligent
Web-based networking and collaborative systems.

Virtual campuses and organizations strongly leverage intelligent
networking and collaborative systems by a great variety of formal and
informal electronic relations, such as business-to-business,
peer-to-peer and many types of online collaborative learning
interactions. This has resulted in entangled systems that need to be
managed efficiently and in an autonomous way. In addition, latest and
powerful technologies based on Grid and Wireless  infrastructure as
well as Cloud computing  are currently enhancing collaborative and
networking applications a great deal but also facing new issues and
challenges. Well-known social networks lack of knowledge management
and adaptive solutions and the information shared among peers is
rather static. Virtual communities of practice also provide poorly
interactive solutions and lack of  full support for organization,
management, mobility and security.

This conference covers the latest advances in intelligence social
networks and collaborative systems that lead to gain competitive
advantages in business and academia scenarios. The ultimate aim is to
stimulate research that will lead to the creation of responsive
environments for networking and, at longer-term, the development of
adaptive, secure, mobile, and intuitive intelligent systems for
collaborative work and learning. Industry and academic researchers,
professionals and practitioners are invited to exchange their
experiences and present their ideas in this field.


SUBMISSION PROCEDURE

Submitted papers should be original and contain contributions of
theoretical, experimental or application nature, or be unique
experience reports. Papers must be submitted no later than June 25th,
2009 and electronic submission in PDF is required. The page limit for
a Track paper is 8 pages. Workshop and Special Session papers
describing novel research visions, work-in-progress or less mature
results are limited to 6 pages. The PhD Forum is an opportunity for
PhD students to present their ongoing dissertation and to discuss
their research with experts in academia and industry. The page limit
for PhD Forum papers is 4 pages. Finally, Poster sessions provide an
excellent possibility for authors to present in an informal and
interactive way their original and unpublished work that demonstrates
current research about the conference topics. The page limit for
Poster papers is 2 pages. All submissions should be in the IEEE 8.5
two-column format. Papers should contain up to 5 keywords. Papers will
be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness,
and will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers.

It is assumed that all accepted manuscripts would be presented at the
conference. All accepted papers must be accompanied by a full paid
registration to appear in the proceedings. All full papers are to be
submitted in PDF electronically via the conference web site.

Proceedings of the INCoS 2009 conference will be published by IEEE
Computer Society Press. Selected papers will be published in several
Journal Special Issues (to be announced).
