Cooperative Information Systems (CIS) provide enterprises and user communities with flexible, scalable and intelligent services in large-scale networking environments. Building next generation CIS requires technical breakthroughs as well as dynamic, reliable and secure collaborative information technologies to overcome the tough challenges that traditional rigid distributed systems did not face. A particular challenge in modern enterprises and entire supply chains is providing flexible and real-world aware CIS that enable users to quickly react to environmental changes as well as to evolving needs (e.g., by continuously and dynamically adapting CIS).

The CIS paradigm has traditionally encompassed distributed systems technologies such as middleware, business process management (BPM) and Web technologies. In recent years, several innovative technologies have emerged: SaaS, cloud computing, Internet of Service, Internet of Things, Service Oriented Computing, mash-ups, Web Services, Semantic Web and Knowledge Grid. These new technologies have increased the need for a tighter integration of data and knowledge with business processes, workflows as well as with collaborative process settings such as process choreographies. This trend is also reflected in areas such as data- or artifact-centric workflows and business process compliance as well as in finding new ways of analyzing data and processes in a combined manner.

CIS applications are heavily distributed and highly coordinated, often exhibiting inter-organizational interaction patterns and requiring distributed access and sharing of computing and information resources. Typically they fall under the categories such as e-Business, e-Commerce, e-Government, e-Health, and e-Science.

The CoopIS conference series has established itself as a major international forum for exchanging ideas and results on scientific research for practitioners in fields such as computer supported cooperative work (CSCW), middleware, Internet & Web data management, electronic commerce, business process management, agent technologies, and software architectures, to name a few. In addition, the 2012 edition of CoopIS aims at highlighting the increasing need for data- and knowledge-intensive processes.

As in previous years, CoopIS'12 will be part of a joint event with other conferences, in the context of the OTM ("OnTheMove") federated conferences, covering different aspects of distributed information systems.

TOPICS OF INTEREST
Topics that are addressed by CoopIS'12 are logically grouped in three broad areas, and include but are not limited to:

Process Management Technologies
• Business process management and integration
• Distributed & cross-organizational process management
• Process modelling, analysis and design
• Variability, adaptation and evolution of process-aware CIS
• Business process intelligence & discovery
• Business process compliance, governance, and risk
• Integrated product and process lifecycle management
• Data- and knowledge-intensive processes
• Integrating processes with real-world events
• Process support in smart and ubiquitous environments
• Enabling interactions among processes
• Collaborative processes
• Situation-aware processes

Middleware and Architectures for Cooperative Information Systems (CIS)
• Dynamic business networks and the Internet of Services
• Internet of Services and Internet of Things integration
• Service-oriented middleware & Web services
• Grid computing and cloud computing
• Semantic interoperability of CIS
• Web-centric information and processing architectures
• Self-adapting and self-healing CIS
• Model-driven middleware architectures
• Multi-agent systems and architectures for CIS
• Peer-to-peer technologies
• Security & privacy in CIS
• Quality of service in CIS
• Mediation, matchmaking, and brokering architectures
• Collaboration and negotiation protocols
• Markets, auctions, exchanges, and coalitions

CIS Applications
• Collaboration and knowledge sharing in enterprises
• Innovative CIS applications for large-scale organizations
• Advances in e-science and Grid computing applications
• Medical and biological information systems
• Industrial applications of CIS
• Mobile processes and services
• E-communities and Web-based collaboration
