2nd Smart Environments and Information Systems Invited Session @ 10th International KES Conference on Intelligent Interactive Multimedia: Systems and Services
Algarve, Portugal, 21/06/2017–23/06/2017

The emergence of pervasive smart environment 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 able of perceiving their surrounding environment, achieving 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 comfort.

After the successful event of 2016, a new edition of the Smart Environments and Information System 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
