Call For Papers

The well-known computation/resource intensive paradigm portrays a paradigm shift with the advent of high-speed applications, on-line multi-user game services, GRID applications and services, or on-demand resources and services. With the heavy distributed and parallel applications, communication intensive aspects, such as bandwidth-intensive, multicast-intensive, and propagation intensive, became key contributors for optimizing workflows of computation of intensive tasks, or storage and access-intensive databases. For example, the massive scalability and storage capacity make it the clear choice for replication-intensive applications; the bandwidth-intensive becomes relevant for content streaming systems, while replication and data reuse are important for data-intensive applications on GRIDS.

Associated with scalability, digital signal processors for computation intensive statistics and simulation relate to new hardware and software supporting the concept of ‚??intensive‚??. Other technologies requiring real-time decoding, mobility, and wireless make the systems computationally very intensive. Performance intensive software is increasingly being used on heterogeneous combinations of OS, compiler, and hardware platforms.

There are monitoring and control aspects related to intensive applications and services aligned to different technologies. For example, specialized wireless LAN controllers are recommended for high-data-rate and multicast-intensive applications such as large data files, video, push-to-talk.

To deal with performance, scalability, stability, and accuracy (as some aspects may be NP-complete), different mechanisms and solutions were considered in terms of heuristics for relaxing the intensiveness, optimization, approximation or suboptimal solutions. For example, there are classes of computation-intensive applications in which the execution cost of a task is greater than its communication cost.

The First International Conference on Intensive Applications and Services, INTENSIVE 2009, inaugurates a series of international events covering a large spectrum of topics related to technologies, hardware, software and mechanisms supporting intensive applications and services (IAS).

We welcome technical papers presenting research and practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, such as those being discussed in the standard fora or in industry consortia, survey papers addressing the key problems and solutions on any of the above topics short papers on work in progress, and panel proposals.

The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, standards, implementations, running experiments and applications. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited topic areas.

The topics suggested (but not limited to):

Basics on IAS

The INTENSIVE 2009 Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press and on-line via IEEE XPlore Digital Library. IEEE will index the papers with major indexes. Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit extended versions to one of the IARIA Journals.

Important deadlines:
Full paper submission November 1, 2008
Authors notification December 5, 2008
Registration and camera ready December 25, 2008

Only .pdf or .doc files will be accepted for paper submission. All received papers will be acknowledged via an automated system.

Final author manuscripts will be 8.5" x 11" (two columns IEEE format), not exceeding 6 pages; max 4 extra pages allowed at additional cost. The formatting instructions can be found on the Instructions page. Helpful information for paper formatting can be found on the here.

Once you receive the notification of paper acceptance, you will be provided by the IEEE CS Press an online author kit with all the steps an author needs to follow to submit the final version. The author kits URL will be included in the letter of acceptance.

Poster Forum

Posters on work-in-progress are welcome. Please submit the contributions following the instructions for the regular submissions using the "Submit a Paper" button and selecting the track/workshop preference as "POSTER : Poster Forum". Contributors are invited to submit up to four-page papers, following the conference deadlines, describing early research and novel skeleton ideas in the areas of the conference topics.

Technical marketing/business/positioning presentations

The conference initiates a series of business, technical marketing, and positioning presentations on the same topics. Speakers must submit a 10-12 slide deck presentations with substantial notes accompanying the slides, in the .ppt format (.pdf-ed). The slide deck will be published in the conference‚??s CD collection, together with the regular papers. Please send your presentations to


Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. They should be about three hours long. Please send your proposals to

Panel proposals:

The organizers encourage scientists and industry leaders to organize dedicated panels dealing with controversial and challenging topics and paradigms. Panel moderators are asked to identify their guests and manage that their appropriate talk supports timely reach our deadlines. Moderators must specifically submit an official proposal, indicating their background, panelist names, their affiliation, the topic of the panel, as well as short biographies.
