Call for Papers

CoopIS is sponsored by INSTICC – Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication

SCOPE

Cooperative Information Systems (CIS) facilitate the cooperation between individuals, organisations, smart devices, and systems of systems, by providing flexible, scalable and intelligent services to enterprises, public institutions and user communities. As a result, people and smart devices can interact, share information and work together across physical barriers. The domain of CIS integrates research results from different related computing areas, such as: distributed systems, coordination technologies, collaborative decision making, enterprise architecture, business process management and conceptual modelling.

In recent years, several innovative technologies have emerged: Cloud Computing, Service Oriented Computing, the Internet of Things, Linked Open Data, Semantic Systems, Collective Awareness Platforms, Block Chain, Processes as a Service, etc, that enable the next generation of CISs.

In developing the next generation CISs, research is needed towards (1) the applicability and use of the above mentioned innovative technologies, (2) approaches to develop CISs in particular catering towards the multitude of stakeholders involved in the development of socio-cyber-physical systems, and (3) associated modelling techniques to express and analyse the different aspects of these systems in cohesion.

The CoopIS conference series is an established international event for presenting and discussing scientific contributions about technical, economical, and societal aspects of distributed information systems at scale.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

CoopIS 2024 will have several invited keynote speakers, who are internationally recognized experts in their areas. Their names are not yet confirmed.

PAPER SUBMISSION

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not under review for any other conference, workshop, or journal. Papers must be written in English. The contributions should address research questions that relate to one of the topics listed above.

We particularly encourage:
1. Contributions that introduce and evaluate technological innovations (e.g., new techniques, tools, methods or software).
2. Empirical studies (e.g. quantitative data on the effects of novel approaches in technical, social, or economical terms).
3. Systematic surveys of emerging technologies and competing paradigms.
4. Case studies in various application areas of AI enabled information systems, such as Healthcare, Industry 4.0, learning analytics, compliance and control or any other industry.


The questions addressed should both be practically relevant and appealing to the general IS field. Full papers should include a systematic evaluation of the contribution and relate this contribution to related scientific work. Position papers may present work supported by preliminary evidence only.

Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 reviewers. Papers are evaluated in terms of originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity.

Submissions for full papers must not exceed 18 pages in the final camera-ready paper style. Position papers can cover up to 8 pages. Submissions must be laid out according to the final camera-ready formatting instructions and must be submitted in PDF format.

Each accepted paper must have one of its authors registered to the conference before the camera-ready deadline. The conference organizers reserve the right of removing a paper from the proceedings if no author is officially registered by the camera-ready deadline. Moreover, only papers that have been presented by their authors during the conference will be published in the conference proceedings.

The final proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). Author instructions can be found at: https://www.springer.com/gp/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines

It is mandatory to submit manuscripts in electronic form (in PDF format).

PUBLICATIONS

All accepted complete papers will be published by Springer in the conference proceedings, under an ISBN reference.
The proceedings will be abstracted/indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, INSPEC, Japanese Science and Technology Agency (JST), Norwegian Register for Scientific Journals and Series, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, Scopus and zbMATH. CCIS volumes are also submitted for the inclusion in ISI Proceedings.
