IRS 2019 : The 1st International Workshop on Intelligent Regulatory Systems
Call For Papers
The First International Workshop on Intelligent Regulatory Systems (IRS)
co-located with 2019 Edition of EDOC Conference (https://edoc2019.sciencesconf.org/resource/page/id/21)
Call for Papers
Regulatory systems (RSs) span across a broad range of industries, activities and behaviors governing how businesses should be operated.
It is increasingly large and can encompass or connect with other systems ranging from traditional software systems to social networks, clouds,
cyber-physical and safety-critical systems. Apart from the intrinsic complexity of integrated systems, the variability and dynamicity of surrounding
environments also make it extremely challenging to ensure the correctness of such systems.
Given many decades of research and development in RSs, various approaches and techniques have been developed and removed some
of the barriers. However, less attention has been drawn to the analysis of system at runtime. Besides, the current practices
also emphasis on the use of artificial intelligence (AI) to automate processes — through the addition of more contexts and
analytics — in a more advanced and intelligent ways. The IRS workshop aims at raising the awareness of approaches that can be used
in providing intelligent support to regulatory systems, including both functional and non-functional properties, before and after executions.
It is intended to be a venue to researchers and practitioners who are interested in methods and techniques for runtime verification and
compliance checking, quantitative analysis (e.g. prediction and optimization of temporal performance) and their applications in
experimental and industrial settings. While EDOC conference solicits conceptual and pure applied research and industrial case studies
covering a full range of systems, models, techniques and engineering technologies contributing to the success of intra/interenterprise
systems, the topics covered by the IRS workshop will supplement the wider coverage of the topics relevant to enterprise systems
that are subject to regulatory and legislative provisions, frameworks and standards.
Topics of Interest
Below is the list of topics of interests, but not limited to:
- Blockchain technologies and applications
- Smart contracts verifications
- Verification techniques for compliance checking of business process at runtime
- Regulatory compliance in IoT and cyber-physical systems
- Issues and challenges in cyber-physical systems
- Semantic compliance in software systems
- Data and privacy compliance in cloud
- Regulatory intelligence systems
- Services and tools for compliance management in specific domains (such as financial, healthcare, security etc.).
- Analysis of legal informatics systems
- Mathematical foundations, languages and specifications for legal knowledge representation
- Methods and techniques for automated workflows generation using natural language processing (NLP).
- Paper submission: June 14, 2019
- Acceptance notification: July 26, 2019
- Camera-ready papers due: August 16, 2019
- Workshops sessions: October 28, 2019
Given the workshop is to co-occur with EDOC 2019, the deadlines for submission are firm and no further extension might be possible.
Prospective authors are invited to submit original, previously unpublished papers for presentation in any of the areas listed above.
Two types of paper submissions are solicited: (a) scientific research papers, and (b) industry experience report or case studies.
Scientific research papers should describe original results not been accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere.
These papers will be evaluated based on their scientific and technical contributions, originality, and relevance.
Industry experience reports or case studies should provide new insights gained in case studies or when applying enterprise
computing technologies in practice, and should provide further important feedback about the state of practice and pose challenges for researchers.
These papers will be evaluated based on their appropriateness, significance, and clarity.
Only papers in English will be accepted. Manuscripts should be no longer than 10 pages for long papers and 6 for short papers
including references, figures and tables . All submissions must be made in PDF format and comply with the IEEE Computer Society Conference
Proceedings Format Guidelines.
Please use the following link to submit your paper https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=irs20190
Each accepted paper must have one of its authors registered to the conference before the camera ready deadline.
The conference organizers reserve the right of removing a paper from the proceedings if no author is officially registered by the
camera ready deadline. Moreover, only papers that have been registered and presented by their authors during the
conference will be published in IEEE Proceedings.
