     The 9th International ACM Conference on Management of Digital
EcoSystems (MEDES'17)
                      In-Cooperation with ACM, ACM SIGAPP and IFIP WG 2.6
                                   November 7-10, 2017
                                    Bangkok, Thailand

Description and Objectives

In the world of the Internet of Things (IoT), the rapid growth and
exponential use of digital components leads to the emergence of intelligent
environments namely "digital ecosystems" connected to the web and composed
of multiple and independent entities such as individuals, organizations,
services, software and applications sharing one or several missions and
focusing on the interactions and inter-relationships among them. With the
help of the computational intelligence, these digital ecosystems can
exhibit new self-* properties (such as self-management, self-healing and
self-configuration) environments, thanks to the re-combination and
evolution of its "digital components", in which resources provided by each
entity are properly conserved, managed and used. The underlying web-based
resources mainly comprehend big data management, innovative services,
smart and self-* properties platforms.

Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of digital ecosystems, they are highly
complex to study and design. This also leads to a poor understanding
as to how managing resources will empower digital ecosystems to be
innovative, intelligent and value-creating. The application of Information
Technologies has the potential to enable the understanding of how entities
request resources and ultimately interact to create benefits and
added-values, impacting business practices and knowledge. These
technologies can be improved through novel techniques, models and
for fields such as big data management, web technologies, networking,
security, human-computer interactions, artificial intelligence, e-services
and self-organizing systems to support the establishment of digital
ecosystems and manage their resources.

The International Conference on Management of Digital EcoSystems
(MEDES),previously named "The International Conference on Management of
Digital EcoSystems", aims to develop and bring together a diverse community
from academia, research laboratories and industry interested in
exploring the manifold challenges and issues related to resource management
of Digital Ecosystems and how current approaches and technologies
can be evolved and adapted to this end.

MEDES 2016 calls for full papers presenting interesting recent results or
novel ideas in all areas of Emergent Digital EcoSystems.  At the same
time, the conference calls  for short papers presenting interesting and
exciting recent results or novel thought-provoking ideas that are not
quite ready, and preferably include a system demonstration.

MEDES 2017 seeks contributions in the following areas:

- Digital Ecosystem Infrastructure
- Data & Knowledge Management
- Computational and Collective Intelligence
- Semantic Computing
- Software ecosystems for software engineering
- Big Data
- Services
- Trust, Security & Privacy
- Software Engineering
- Internet of Things and Intelligent Web
- Cyber Physical Systems
- Social and Collaborative Platforms
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Open Source
- Applications (Logistics, Energy, Healthcare, Environment, Smart Cities,
Digital Humanities, Robotics, etc.)
- Complex Systems and Networks

Paper Submission

Submissions must be in an electronic form as PDF format and should be
uploaded using the conference website. The submitted paper should be at
most 8 ACM single-space printed pages. Papers that fail to comply with
length limit will be rejected.

Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 peer reviewers. After the
preliminary notification date, authors rebut by evidence and arguments all
reviewer inquiries and their comments. Based on the rebuttal feedback,
reviewers notify authors with the final decision. 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 related
to Digital Ecosystems. At least one author should attend the conference to
present the paper.

The conference Proceedings will be published by ACM and indexed by the ACM
Digital Library and DBLP.
