NGITS 2009 : The 7th conference on Next Generation Information Technologies and Systems
Conference Series : Next Generation Information Technologies and Systems
Call For Papers
The NGITS series of workshops was launched in 1993 to promote research on new technologies in information systems,
and NGITS 2009 is the seventh workshop in this series. We invite technical research papers on all aspects of information systems.
Of particular interest are papers that combine multiple disciplines of computer science to develop new technologies for information systems.
Submissions may report original research results, outline new viewpoints and challenges,
or describe the implementation or deployment of a novel technology in an actual setting.
Accordingly, authors should categorize their submission as "research," "vision," or "experience," depending on its primary contribution.
NGITS 2009 will feature an additional industrial track.
See the call for papers at: http://mis.hevra.haifa.ac.il/~ngits2009/industrial.html.
In addition to technical research papers, we are also seeking proposals for panels and demonstrations.
Proceedings of previous NGITS workshops were published in Springer's LNCS series, and we intend to continue with this tradition.
To illustrate the scope of NGITS, a list of topics is given below, but submissions are not limited to these topics.
- Methodologies, models and tools for IS development
o Requirements engineering
o Model-driven engineering
o Design of IS
o Human aspects
o Software asset/portfolio management
o Business Transformation and Optimization
o IT Governance
o Agile software development
o Verification, testing, and evaluation of IS
o Database management
o Information retrieval and filtering
o Flexible querying
o Knowledge discovery and data mining
o Data warehousing
o Knowledge management
o Agent oriented technologies
o Programming languages and development environments
o Service-Oriented Architecture
o Web services
o Collaboration technologies
o Enterprise applications
o Workflow management systems
o Medical information systems
o Decision support systems
o Agricultural information systems
Demos should feature mature systems or innovative prototypes of information systems.
They should be attractive, address an application of broad interest in such a way that it can be appreciated by a diverse audience,
and clearly show the contributions to the conference themes.
We also encourage submission of demos that have already been described in the literature.
All submissions should be in LNCS format. For camera-ready format instructions, please see “Information for LNCS Authors” instructions at:
www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html. Full paper submissions should not exceed 12 pages, and poster submissions should not exceed 4 pages.
Authors of demos should submit short (1-3 pages) informal descriptions of their proposed presentation.
Please describe what attendees will be able to see or do during your demo (e.g., screenshots),
and itemize any equipment or facilities that you will require for your demonstration. Abstracts must be submitted by January 25, 2009,
and full papers are due February 2, 2009. Detailed information on the paper submission procedure will be available at the workshop's Web site:
http://mis.hevra.haifa.ac.il/~ngits2009/ in time for submission.
