NeGIS 2020 : 1st International Workshop on Next Generation Information Systems: Modeling, Monitoring and Management in Cloud and Fog Computing (NeGIS 2020)
Call For Papers
1st International Workshop on Next Generation Information Systems:
Modeling, Monitoring and Management in Cloud and Fog Computing
Co-located with CAiSE'20
June 9th 2020
CALL FOR PAPERS
The amount of data and services supported by Information Systems (ISs) has increased exponentially during the last few years. To improve their efficiency and reduce costs, modern organizations have been shifting their services, with part of their ISs, to the Cloud. More recent developments have shown an inversion towards decentralization and distribution of applications and services in the huge pool of devices and computing facilities available nearer to the customers. This shift is due to the impact of Internet of Things, which is further increasing the amount of data to be stored and computed. Fog Computing is the last frontier for ISs, where data and services can be moved in the continuum of resources between the cloud and the edge.
In this workshop we aim to collect contributions investigating issues related to the management of cloud and fog computing in modern information systems with a focus, but not limited, on energy efficiency, security, and privacy, their relations and trade-off with other requirements such as response time and throughput. In doing so, we are considering both the application components of the information system with their complexity, as well as the management of the data used by such applications. We also consider the impact of the human in the loop, looking at how the awareness and the behaviors of users and designers in socio-technical systems can affect the effective adoption of energy and security policies.
Topics include but are not limited to:
Modelling Cloud and Fog computing solutions for modern Information Systems
Monitoring and Managing Information Systems in Cloud and Fog Computing
Models, methods, and tools for data management in Cloud and Fog Computing
Energy-awareness and sustainability in Information Systems: metrics and measurements
Quality of Service, energy efficiency and security in Mobile Edge Computing
Methodologies and tools for energy efficiency and security compliance in Cloud and Fog computing
Adaptive approaches to manage energy consumption, QoS, and security of applications and systems
Energy and Security aware blockchain solutions
Energy and security requirements in Information Systems and Socio-Technical Systems
Energy and security behaviours in Socio-Technical Systems
Negis2020 will be co-located in Grenoble with the 32nd International Conference on Advanced Information Systems (CAISE'20, 8-12 June 2020).
BEST PAPER AWARD
The best paper will be considered for publication in a high level international journal. To be selected the paper must include a validation of the proposed approach. The authors of the paper selected as best paper will have to provide an extended version for submission to a fast evaluation track.
Abstract submission: 20th February 2020
Full paper submissions: 26th February 2020
Notification of acceptance: 1st April 2020
Camera-ready copies: 7th April 2020
Workshop: 9th June 2020
Submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=caise2020
The workshop is addressed to researchers with a strong background in the field of Modeling, Monitoring and Management of information systems in Cloud and Fog Computing. Contributions will be evaluated for their relevance to the workshop topics and will be blind reviewed by at least three PC members. The workshop will be divided into two main parts. In the first part, authors of accepted papers will present their work. This part will be divided into sessions according to the topics emerged from the contributions. The second part will be a round table for discussing issues and solutions, aiming at enhancing collaboration.
Contributions are accepted in the form of:
Full Papers describe original solutions (theoretical, methodological or conceptual) in the field of sustainable IS engineering.
Short Papers describe an initial approach towards an innovative ea in the field of sustainable IS engineering.
Papers should be submitted in PDF format. The results described must be unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. Submissions must conform to Springer’s LNBIP format and should not exceed 12 pages (6 pages for short papers), including all text, figures, references and appendices.
Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
