2nd Smart Environments and Information Systems
Invited Session

10th International KES Conference on

Tivoli Marina Hotel,
Vilamoura, Algarve,
Portugal 21-23 June 2017


The emergence of pervasive smart environments and information systems represents a fundamental change in the way information technology services are invented, developed, deployed, scaled, updated, paid for and maintained.
The digital world is made of real-time data, processes, operations and operating environments where third-party services will be ubiquitous and mostly available over the Cloud and every resource could be provided "as a service".
Such abundance of services and data offers new opportunities but also raises new challenges for information systems. The incoming generation of information systems requires new ways to engineer systems that are able to perceive their surrounding environment, activating effectors of many sorts, and operating even in dynamic environments.
The applications covered by this kind of systems range from health and safety to power efficiency and entertainment.

After the successful event of 2016, a new edition of the Smart Environments and Information Systems session will be held during the KES-IIMSS-17 conference in Vilamoura, Algarve, Portugal on 21-23 June 2017. This special session focuses on several aspects of engineering smart systems. The list of topics includes (but it is not limited to):

Foundational Concepts:
Self-adaptive, self-organizing systems and run-time model
Systems of systems
Control of complex dynamic systems
Service composition, orchestration, and choreography
Cloud technology and mobile computing
Multi-agent systems and coordination
Design theories, methods, notations, and tools

Application areas:
Cloud application and mashup
Smart spaces/environments
Smart power grids
Smart cyber-physical systems
Smart Information systems
Business process management
Internet of things and pervasive systems

Formal verification
Empirical and experimental validation
“In vivo” testing grounds
Case studies and industrial practice
Model problem, exemplars and benchmarks

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer as book chapters in a volume of the KES Smart Innovation Systems and Technologies series, submitted for indexing in Scopus and Thomson_Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI) and the Web of Science.

Submissions must be formatted according to the instructions which can be found on the Springer website ( under "Instructions for Authors".

Papers must be submitted in PDF format for review purposes, but authors are required to upload editable word-processor files (LaTeX or MS Word) at the end of the review process.

The required paper length is 10 pages in publisher format. Papers longer than this may be subject to an additional charge. Papers much longer or shorter than the required length may be rejected, at the discretion of the organisers.

To be considered for the conference, papers must be submitted in PDF format through the PROSE online submission and review system (
