Description and Objectives

---------------------------

 

In the world of the Internet, the rapid growth and exponential use of
digital medias leads to the emergence of 

virtual environments namely digital ecosystems composed of multiple and
independent entities such as individuals, 

organizations, services, software and applications sharing one or
several missions and focusing on the interactions 

and inter-relationships among them. The digital ecosystem exhibits
self-organizing environments, thanks to the 

re-combination and evolution of its "digital components", in which
resources provided by each entity are properly 

conserved, managed and used. The underlying resources mainly comprehend
data management, innovative services, 

computational intelligence and self-organizing platforms. Due to the
multi-disciplinary nature of digital ecosystems 

and their characteristics, they are highly complex to study and design.
This also leads to a poor understanding as to 

how managing resources will empower digital ecosystems to be innovative
and value-creating. The application of Information 

Technologies has the potential to enable the understanding of how
entities request resources and ultimately interact to 

create benefits and added-values, impacting business practices and
knowledge. These technologies can be improved through 

novel techniques, models and methodologies for fields such as data
management, web technologies, networking, security, 

human-computer interactions, artificial intelligence, e-services and
self-organizing systems to support the establishment 

of digital ecosystems and manage their resources. 

 

The International Conference on Management of Emergent Digital
EcoSystems (EDES) aims to develop and bring together 

a diverse community from academia, research laboratories and industry
interested in exploring the manifold challenges 

and issues related to resource management of Digital Ecosystems and how
current approaches and technologies can be 

evolved and adapted to this end. The conference seeks related original
research papers, industrial papers and proposals 

for demonstrations, and tutorials and workshops.

Paper Submission

----------------

 

Submissions must be in an electronic form as PDF format and should be
uploaded using the conference website. 

Submissions should be at most 8 ACM single-space printed pages. Papers
that fail to comply with length limit 

will be rejected. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 peer
reviewers. Selection criteria will 

include: relevance, significance, impact, originality, technical
soundness, and quality of presentation. 

Preference will be given to submissions that take strong or challenging
positions on important emergent topics 

related to Digital Ecosystems. At least one author should attend the
conference to present the paper. 

The conference Proceedings will be published by ACM and indexed by the
ACM Digital Library.
