Please send to interested colleagues and students) Call for Papers ##################################################################### First International Conference on Complex, Intelligent and Software Intensive Systems (CISIS-2007) http://www.cisis-conference.eu/ April 10 - April 13, 2007 Vienna, Austria ##################################################################### To be held in conjunction with: ARES-2007 International Conference http://www.ares-conference.eu/ Aim ====== The aim of the conference is to deliver a platform of scientific interaction between the three interwoven challenging areas of research and development of future ICT-enabled applications: - Software Intensive Systems - Complex systems - Intelligent Systems Software Intensive Systems are systems which heavily deal with other systems, sensors, actuators, devices, other software systems and users. More and more domains are involved with software intensive systems, i.e. automotive, telecommunication systems, embedded systems in general, industrial automation systems, business applications. The outcome of web services delivers a new platform for enabling software intensive systems. The conference will focus on tools, practically relevant and heoretical foundations for engineering software intensive systems. Complex Systems Research is focused on the overall understanding of systems rather than its components. The ICT-enabling aspect of Complex Systems is the focus of the contributions to be presented at CISIS 2007. Complex Systems are very much characterised by the changing environments in which they act and by their multiple internal and external interactions. They evolve and adapt through internal and external dynamic interactions. The development of Intelligent Systems and agents which is more and more characterised by the use of ontologies and their logical foundations build a fruitful impulse for both Software intensive Systems and Complex Systems. Recent research in the field of intelligent systems –robotics, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and cognitive sciences- builds an important factor for the future development and innovation of software intensive and complex systems. CISIS 2007 is aiming at delivering a forum for in-depth scientific discussions amongst the three communities leading to significant contributions in areas such as: - Monitoring and Control of Large Systems or Environments. - Managing the hetrogeneity of knowledge by means of ontologies - Use of Sevice Oriented Architectures for complex applications in business and industries - The consideration of Software Intensive Systems as Complex Systems - Enabling of Systems Biology concepts as software intensive conmplex systems - Knowledge management of complex IT-systems etc. Scope ========= Networks of today are going through a rapid evolution. Different kinds of systems with different characteristics are emerging and they are integrating in heterogeneous networks. For these reasons, there are many interconnection problems which may occur at different levels in the hardware and software design of communicating entities and communication networks. These kinds of networks need to manage an increasing usage demand, provide support for a significant number of services, guarantee their QoS, and optimize the utilization of network resources. Therefore, architectures and algorithms in these networks become very complex and it seems imperative to focus on new models and methods as well as mechanisms, which can enable the network to perform adaptive behaviors. Many new computing technologies have emerged as new paradigms for solving complex problems by enabling large-scale aggregation and sharing of computational, data and other geographically distributed resources. Rapid advances are being reported by many researchers and forums as regards understanding numerous issues in such paradigms, from theoretic to application aspects. Moreover, the continuous development of Internet and the construction of new infrastructures are making possible the development of large scale applications from many fields of science and engineering. To deal with complexity, we should construct physically instantiated systems that can perceive, understand, and interact with their environment – but also evolve in order to achieve human-like performance in activities requiring context-specific knowledge. This is far beyond the current state of the art and will remain so for many years to come. Therefore, many research efforts are required to make headway towards this vision. The strategic challenges are motivated by recent research in the field of intelligent systems – robotics, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and cognitive sciences. In recent years, a large community of researchers has begun to realize the importance of brain-body interaction for understanding intelligence and its central role in a wide range of processes including perception, object manipulation, movement, and high-level cognition. The research challenges include theoretical frameworks based on the notions of embodiment, the dynamical systems metaphor, complete agents rather than individual components, self-reconfiguration and self-repair, morphology and development. Progress in the theoretical underpinnings of embodied intelligence will have strong technological implications in areas including robotics, actuator technology, materials, self-assembling systems. Research in intelligent and cognitive systems is an interdisciplinary field requiring the cooperation of researchers from artificial intelligence, neuroscience (including cognitive and computational), psychology (cognitive and developmental), linguistics, developmental biology, robotics (and engineering in general), biomechanics, and dynamical systems. Software has become a central part of a rapidly growing range of applications, products and services from all sectors of economic activity. Systems in which software interacts with other software, systems, devices, sensors and with people are called software- intensive systems. Examples include large-scale heterogeneous systems, embedded systems for automotive and avionics applications, telecommunications, wireless ad hoc systems, business applications with an emphasis on web services. Our daily activities increasingly depend on complex software-intensive systems that are becoming ever more distributed, heterogeneous, decentralized and inter-dependent, and that are operating more and more in dynamic and often unpredictable environments. There exist different kinds of complexity in the development of software. Software systems grew larger, the focus shifted from the complexity of developing algorithms to the complexity structuring large systems, and then to the additional complexities in building distributed, concurrent systems. In the next ten to fifteen years we will have to face another level of complexity arising from the fact that systems have to operate in large, open and non- deterministic environments: the complexity of knowledge, interaction and adaptation. Instead of developing computer-oriented systems where people have to adapt to the computer we have to develop human- oriented systems into which computers integrate seamlessly. Also, the requirements for software quality will dramatically increase. But our current methods are not sufficient to deal with adaptive software in a dynamic environment, especially not for large systems with complex interactions. We need to develop practically useful and theoretically well founded principles, methods and tools for engineering future software-intensive systems. All the complex systems depend on software that controls the behavior of individual components and the interaction between components, and on software which interacts with other software, systems, devices, sensors and with people. In other words: they depend on software- intensive systems. The CISIS-2007 seeks original contributions in all relevant areas, including but not limited to the following topics.
