The 12th International Conference on Network-Based Information Systems

Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis
Indianapolis, IN, USA, August 19-21, 2009


Submission deadline: March 15, 2009
Authors Notification: May 1, 2009

Conference dates: August 19-21, 2009


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 and high quality papers are presented. After
the 9-th NBiS,
which was held at Krakow, Porland in 2006, NBiS was promoted to an
International Conference
and the 10-th NBiS was held in Regensburg, Germany in 2007 as
International Conference.
NBIS is becoming a very important event for network research community
and is improved every year in quality and quantity.
This year the 12th NBiS will be held at Indiana University-Purdue
University Indianapolis
Indianapolis (IUPUI), USA, from August 19 to August 21, 2009.

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 infrastructure has 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 cyber space 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 seeks original contributions in all relevant areas, including but not
limited to the following topics.

Topics of interest
-Parallel and Distributed Algorithms
-Communication Networks and Protocols
-Databases and Data Mining
-Grid Infrastructures
-P2P Overlay Networks and Applications
-Scheduling, Resource Discovery and Allocation
-JXTA-based Applications
-Web and Internet Applications
-Ubiquitous Computing Applications
-Pervasive Computing and Applications
-Multimedia Systems and Applications
-Autonomic Computing
-Distributed Object-Oriented Systems
-Heterogeneous Wireless Networks
-Sensor Networks
-Ad Hoc Networks
-Sensor and Actor Networks
-High-Speed Networks
-Routing Algorithms
-Interoperable Systems
