Call for papers – IEEE DEST: Conference on Digital Ecosystems and Technologies

Call for papers – IEEE DEST: Conference on Digital Ecosystems and
Technologies, 31st May – 3rd June 2011, Daejeon, Korea

Workshop on e-Research

Digital ecosystems may be defined as open, loosely coupled, self-organising
environments that arise as a result of interactions between human- and
computer-based agents; e-research may be defined as the application of
innovative computational and information technologies and methodologies to
facilitate collaborative research. As such, the relationships between these
topics flow two ways: on the one hand, e-research activities increasingly
make use of digital ecosystems, for example in the use of distributed
service and resource environments; on the other, digital ecosystems and the
issues they raise themselves form an important research topic within the
field of e-research. We solicit papers describing research and best practice
regarding both aspects of the relationship between e-research and digital

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

·         Virtual research environments

·         Architectures and infrastructures for e-research ecosystems

·         Human interaction with complex environments: perceptions,
expectations and engagement

·         Interaction between human researchers, computer agents and digital

·         Cultural and political issues around the adoption of, and
adaptation to, computer-mediated communication and information sharing

·         Collective intelligence

·         Autonomous agents and multi-agent systems

·         Distributed models for digital repositories and data management

·         Reliability and SLAs in distributed environments

·         Online collaboration: technological and human issues
