Web-Based Information Technologies & Distributed Systems Track

On-line submission and review site (click here)


This track focuses on emerging and novel concepts, architectures and methodologies for information management. The Internet and the related technologies have created an interconnected world in which information can be exchanged easily, tasks can be processed collaboratively, communities of users with similarly interests can be formed to achieve efficiency and improve performance, while security threats are present more than ever before. This track will present an opportunity for researchers working in these different domains to get together and share recent developments and techniques in order to identify the critical  problems and the most promising research avenues.


We solicit original research papers in all areas of web-based information technologies and distributed systems with a special interest in the following topics:

  • Information System Interoperability
    • Digital Libraries
    • Semantic Interoperability and Semantic Mediators
    • Ontologies interoperability
    • Cooperative Database Systems and Workflow Management
    • Agent-oriented architectures for database interoperability
    • Data interoperability issues in advanced applications
  • Emergent semantics
    • Context-Dependent Semantics
    • Contextual Reasoning in Distributed Ontologies

Submissions must be in electronic form as PDF or PS files and should be uploaded through the SITIS 2006 Web site. Electronic abstract submission is required. Submissions should be of length 3000-4000 words (approx. 8-12 double-space printed pages). Papers that fail to comply with length limit will be rejected. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 2 qualified reviewers. Selection criteria will include: relevance, significance, impact, originality, technical soundness, and quality of presentation. Preference will be given to submissions that take strong or challenging positions on important emergent topics. At least one author should attend the conference to present the paper.

A selection of high quality papers will be invited to submit extended and enhanced versions of their papers to the upcoming special issue of an international journal.
