The 15th International Conference on Network-Based Information Systems

Melbourne, Australia
26 - 28 September 2012

Workshop Proposal: 15 February, 2012
Submission Deadline: 15 April, 2012
Authors Notification: 20 May 2012
Author Registration: 22 June, 2012
Final Manuscript: 22 June 2012
Conference Dates: 26-28 September 2012

The International Conference on Network-Based Information Systems (NBiS) started as an International Workshop
in 1998, which was held in Vienna, Austria in conjunction with DEXA International Conference.
From 1998, NBiS had been held successfully every year with high quality papers being presented.
Since the 9th NBiS in 2006, which was held in Krakow, Poland, NBiS has been promoted to an
International Conference, whereby the 10th NBiS was held in Regensburg, Germany in 2007 as an
International Conference.

NBiS is becoming a very important event for the network research community and is improved every
year in both quality and quantity. The NBiS International Conference moves around the world in
all continents; NBIS-2009 in Indianapolis, USA, NBiS-2010 in Takayama, Japan, and NBiS-2011 at
the Polytechnic University of Tirana, Albania. This year NBiS-2012 will be held in Melbourne,

The main objective of NBiS is to bring together researchers from both network systems and
information systems with the aim of encouraging the exchange of ideas and experience between
these two communities. It will represent an international forum to give an overview of
the most recent trends. In the past decade, our network infrastructures have undergone radical
changes. It has evolved from a small number of interconnected computer networks to a global
socio-technical infrastructure, where people communicate and interact spontaneously in
cyberspace and with the cyber physical world, create content and share knowledge over a network
of heterogeneous networks. In the future, global society will increasingly rely on socio-technical
networks designed in harmony with societal values and economic viability, with enhanced security,
privacy, resilience, availability and manageability, and the ability to incorporate as yet
unforeseen technologies, applications and services.

Future networks should be available anytime and anywhere, be accessible from any communication
device, require little or no management overhead, be resilient to failures and malicious attacks,
and be trustworthy for all types of communication. They must be able to evolve over time to
incorporate new technologies, support new classes of applications, and meet new requirements and
challenges. They also need to accommodate growth and unforeseen changes across many dimensions,
including traffic load, network size and topology, physical link characteristics, different
types of applications, and heterogeneity, without significant performance degradation.

The conference scope ranges from home networks with numerous "smart" appliances to enterprise
networks, core networks, and application-level networks.

The NBiS-2012 seeks original contributions in all relevant areas, including but not limited to
the following topics.

1. Communication Networks and Protocols
2. Databases and Data Mining
3. Cloud, Grid and P2P Computing
4. Semantic Web and Internet Applications
5. Ubiquitous and Pervasive Computing Applications
6. Multimedia Systems and Applications
7. Mobile and Wireless Networks
8. Network Security and Privacy
9. Social Networks
10. Energy Efficient Networks and Green IT
11. Intelligent Computing and Networking
12. Parallel Computing, Multicore and Network-on-Chip (NoC)

Submit a full paper not more than eight pages (Proceedings Manuscript: two column, single-spaced),
including figures and references, using 10 font size, and number each page. You can find
nstructions to format the Proceedings Manuscript, at the following web page:

Prepare your paper in PDF file (Adobe format), and submit it electronically to the NBiS-2012
web page:

Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s)
together with the notification of acceptance. Proceedings of the NBiS-2012 will be published by
Conference Publishing Service. Presented papers at NBiS-2012 will be considered for publication
in several Special Issues in International Journals.

The following workshops will be held in conjunction with NBiS-2012 International Conference.
