                                CALL FOR PAPERS

              Internet-Based Computing and Systems (IBCS) track at


                SITIS 2012 - The 8th International Conference on



                In cooperation with IEEE Technical Committee on

                         Multimedia Computing (pending)


                 November 25-29, 2012, SORRENTO - Naples, Italy







The SITIS conference is dedicated to research on the technologies used to

represent, share and process information in various forms, ranging from

signal, image, and multimedia data to traditional structured data and semi

structured data found in the web.  


The focus of the track on Internet Based Systems and Computing is on

emerging and novel concepts, architectures and methodologies for information


Novel architectures are being proposed to allow resource sharing and

distributed processing of data with increasing complexity. 

Cloud computing, peer to peer computing, mobile information systems,

semantic based applications, and decision support systems are a few examples

of these applications and systems. 


The Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):


Data semantics

* Multiple Representation

* Ontologies

* Conceptual Data Modeling
