CALL FOR PAPERS: DCSA2015@ADBIS  Data CenteredSmart Applications

Sep 8, 2015, Futuroscope, Poitiers - FranceDCSA website: Workshop incollaboration with The 19thinternational conference of Advanced Data Bases and Information Systems 2015( ADBID 2015Futuroscope, Poitiers - France, September 8-11, 2015 Nowadays,smart applications are gaining a lot of attention from academic and industry.Massive data collections and the usage of that data brings into the domain of developing smartapplications as the key to the process for improving the efficiency,reliability, and security of a traditional application. The concept of smartapplications includes various aspects such as environmental sustainability,social sustainability, regional competitiveness, natural resources management,cybersecurity, and quality of life improvement. With the massive deployment ofnetworked smart devices and sensors, unprecedented large amounts of sensorydata can be collected and processed by advanced computing paradigms which arethe enabling techniques for smart applications. For example, given historicalenvironmental, population and economic information, salient modeling andanalytics are needed to simulate the impact of potential applicationdevelopment strategies, which will be critical for intelligent decision making.Analytics are also indispensable for discovering the underlying structure fromretrieved data in order to design the optimal policies for real time automaticcontrol in the cyberphysical smart system. Furthermore, uncertainties andsecurity concerns in the data collected from heterogeneous resources aggravatethe problem, which makes smart planning, operation, monitoring and controlhighly challenging.

The topics of interest for thisworkshop include, but are not limited to:

·      Modeling, Analyticsand Design of Data and Smart Applications·      Advancedbig data modeling and analytics  forsmart applications·      Socialmedia, crowdsourcing and collaborative behavior management·      Designand implementation of (embedded) systems for smart applications·      Smartapplications as cyberphysical system·      Technologiesin electrical vehicle, smart building and smart home·      Designand synthesis of computing schemes and architectures ·      Modelingand computing techniques for environmental and social issues ·      Metadata, Ontologies,Vocabularies Perspective·      User Requirements and engineering life cycle ·      Semantic Web content creation, annotation, and extraction·      Ontology creation, extraction, and evolution·      Ontology mapping, merging, and alignment·      Use of common vocabularies for smart applications·      Usage of Semantic Web for smartapplications·      Creative industries·      Municipality/public services·      Tourist services·      Museums·      Digital Libraries·      Integration of virtual and physical collections·      Ambient systems·      Mobile and web-based guides.   Applicationsof Semantic Web technologies ·       Domainontologies·       Userand context ontologies·       Reasoningstrategies (e.g. context, temporal, spatial)·       Robustand scalable knowledge management and reasoning on the Web·       Machinelearning and NLP techniques·       Applicationswith clear lessons learned·       SemanticWeb technologies for multimedia content  The aim of the DCSMWorkshop is to bring together Computer Science and information systems experts,and more precisely Data Scientists, involved in smart applications engineering.The goal is to exchange experiences, build a state of the art of realizationsand challenges and reuse and adapt solutions that have been proposed in otherdomains. There are no conferences focusing on the data centered smartapplications, except the conferences and workshops on big data and smart citiesin their own right. IMPORTANT DATES: Deadline for paper submission: April 30th 2015 (extendeddeadline)Notifications to authors:May 29th 2015Camera-ready paper:June 15th 2015Workshops:September 8th, 2015Main Conference:September 8-9th, 2014 ORGANIZERS:Ajantha Dahanayake (Prince SultanUniversity, Saudi Arabia)Bernhard Thalheim (ChristianAlbrechts University, Germany)    PROGRAMCOMMITTEE Henk Sol (GroningenUniversity The Netherlands)Elio Masciari (Universita`della Calabria Via Pietro Bucci, Italy)Barbara Catania (University ofGenoa, Italy)Isabelle Wattiau (Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers, France)Jari Porras(Lappeenranta University, Finland)Areej Alwabil (PrinceSultan University)Mario Pichler (Software CompetenceCenter, Austria)Antje Düsterhöft(Hochschule Wismar, Germany)Margita Kon-Popovska, (Ss Cyril andMethodious University, Macedonia)SamiraSi-Saïd (Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers, France)Qing Wang (AustralianNational University, Australia) DurationThe workshop covers three sessionsof 90 minutes on a single day. Paper submission proceduresPapers will be subject to peerreview by at least three members of an international program committee. The workshop website ( is maintainedby Christian Albrechts University in Kiel, Germany and uses the EasyChair papersubmission and review system. DCSM will include main and shortpapers into the LNCS proceedings published by Springer in the Advances inIntelligent Systems and Computing series ( The expected length of DCSA papers are 14 pages according tothe general policy. Best papers of the Workshops will be invited for submission inspecial issue of the following Journal.   
   - Information Systems Frontiers, Springer
For each accepted paper at least oneauthor will have to be register for the workshop and the conference in order topublish the paper in the LNCS proceedings.
