CFP : Czech Republic- NDT2009

                            Call for Papers

First International Conference on 'Networked Digital Technologies'(NDT 2009)
                (Technical co-sponsors - COMSOC of IEEE)
               Ostrava, Czech Republic, July 28-31, 2009
             The proceedings will be indexed in IEEE Xplore

The proposed conference on the above theme will be be held at the  
VSB-Technical University, Ostrava, Czech Republic from July 28 to July  
31 2009 which aims to enable researchers build connections between  
different digital applications.

Currently a number of institutions across the countries are working to  
evolve better models to provide collaborative technology services for  
scholarship by creating shared cyberspace thro expert collaboration,  
but this is a challenge for the institutions for a number of reasons.  
In the last few years, the landscape of digital technology  
applications projects for the various disciplines in humanities,  
social sciences, and sciences appears induced by many initiatives. For  
the creation of research clusters, the research community has  
thousands of databases, websites, local computing clusters, and  
web-based tools around individual themes, interests and projects. In  
most cases, these tools and resources are and were created to meet the  
specific needs of a particular community. In many cases, the funding  
and support for these critical initiatives is fragile and temporary,  
and directed in piecemeal fashion.
There is a need to provide concerted efforts in building federated  
digital technologies that will enable the formation of network of  
digital technologies.

Topics include but not limited to:

Information and Data Management
Data and Network mining
Intelligent agent-based systems, cognitive and reactive distributed AI systems
