SITIS 2008 - Track Open Source Software Development and Solutions (OSSDS)
IFIP TC 2 WG 2.13 approval pending
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. SITIS spans two inter-related research domains that increasingly play a key role in connecting systems across network centric environments to allow distributed computing and information sharing.
SITIS 2008 aims to provide a forum for high quality presentations on research activities centered on four main tracks. This track focuses on new software engineering method for Open Source Software Development and Solution (OSSDS) in distributed and large scaled environments, strategies for promoting, adopting, using Open Source Solutions and case studies or success stories in specific domains.
SITIS is also dedicated to bring together scientists from the world over, particularly from developing countries, to share and exchange knowledge, experience and research results. When the conference is hosted by research institutions in developing countries, a particular emphasis will be placed on the presentation of applied research, the organization of practical tutorials and workshops that may help address the information processing needs of these countries, and book give away sessions to allow conference attendees to donate books to the local institutions.
Submission and publication
The conference will include keynote addresses, tutorials and regular and workshop sessions. SITIS 20007 invites submission of high quality and original papers on the topics of the major tracks described below. All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers for technical merit, originality, significance and relevance to track topics. Papers must be up to 10 pages and follow IEEE double columns publication format.
Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and published IEEE Computer Society and referenced in IEEE explore and major indexes. The proceedings will be mailed by the IEEE CS press directly to registered authors after the conference. CD copies of the proceeding will be available during the conference. Selected accepted papers will be considered for publication in major journal.
The focus of this track is on new software engineering method for Open Source Software development in distributed and large scaled environments, strategies for promoting, adopting, using Open Source Solutions and case studies or success stories in specific domains.
