Call For Papers

13th International ACM Conference on Management of Digital EcoSystems (MEDES'2021)
In-cooperation with ACM, ACM SIGAPP and IFIP WG 2.6
November 1-3, 2021
Hammamet, Tunisia

In the world of the Internet of Things (IoT), the rapid growth and exponential use of digital components leads to the emergence of intelligent environments namely "digital ecosystems" connected to the Web and composed of multiple and independent entities such as individuals, organisations, services, software, and applications sharing one or several missions and focusing on the interactions and inter-relationships among them. With the help of the computational intelligence, these digital ecosystems can exhibit new self-* properties (such as self-management, self-healing and self-configuration), thanks to the re-combination and evolution of its "digital components", in which resources provided by each entity are properly conserved, managed and used. The underlying Web-based resources mainly comprehend big data management, innovative services, smart and self-* properties platforms. Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of digital ecosystems, they are highly complex to study, design, and develop. This also leads to a poor understanding as to how managing resources will empower digital ecosystems to be innovative, intelligent and value-creating. The application of Information and Communication Technologies has the potential to enable the understanding of how entities request resources and ultimately interact to create benefits and added-values, impacting business practices and knowledge. These technologies can be improved through novel techniques, models, and methods for fields such as big data management, Web technologies, networking, security, human-computer interactions, artificial intelligence, e-services and self-organising systems to support the establishment of digital ecosystems and manage their resources.

The International Conference on Management of Digital EcoSystems (MEDES) aims to develop and bring together a diverse community from academia, research laboratories, and industries interested in exploring the manifold challenges and issues related to resource management of Digital Ecosystems and how current approaches, techniques, and technologies can be evolved and adapted to this end. MEDES’2021 calls for full papers presenting interesting recent results or novel ideas in all areas of Digital EcoSystems. At the same time, the conference calls for short papers presenting interesting and exciting recent results or novel thought-provoking ideas that are not quite ready, and preferably include a system demonstration.

MEDES'2021 seeks contributions in the following areas:
- Digital Ecosystem Infrastructure
- Data & Knowledge Management
- Computational and Collective Intelligence
- Semantic Computing
- Software ecosystems for software engineering
- Big Data
- Services
- Trust, Security & Privacy
- Software Engineering
- Internet of Things and Intelligent Web
- Cyber Physical Systems
- Social and Collaborative Platforms
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Open Source
- Applications (Logistics, Energy, Healthcare, Environment, Smart Cities, Digital Humanities, Robotics, etc.)
- Complex Systems and Networks

- Payam Barnaghi, Imperial College London, UK
- Johann Gamper, University of Bozen-Bolzano, Italy
- Georgios N. Yannakakis, University of Malta, Malta

Submissions must be in an electronic form as PDF format and should be uploaded using the conference website. The submitted paper should be at most 8 ACM single-space printed pages. Papers that fail to comply with length limit will be rejected. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 peer reviewers. After the preliminary notification date, authors rebut by evidence and arguments all reviewer inquiries and their comments. Based on the rebuttal feedback, reviewers notify authors with the final decision. Selection criteria will include relevance, significance, impact, originality, technical soundness, and quality of presentation. Preference will be given to submissions that take strong or challenging positions on important emergent topics related to Digital Ecosystems. At least one author should attend the conference to present the paper. The conference Proceedings will be published by ACM and indexed by the ACM Digital Library and DBLP. Kindly submit your papers by clicking

Selected papers will be invited to be submitted as extended versions for possible publication after a peer review at:
- SN Computer Science (Springer)
- Computer Science and Information Systems (ComSIS Consortium)
- Digital an Open Access Journal (MDPI)
