Internet-Based Computing and Systems

The track on Internet Based Systems and Applications 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.

Taking full advantage of these interconnected environments to meet the ever increasing needs of emerging application requires solutions that address new issues and challenges. Novel architectures are being proposed to allow resource sharing and distributed processing of data with increasing complexity. Peer to peer computing, mobile information systems, semantic based applications, and decision support systems are a few examples of these applications and systems. One major objective of SITIS 2012 is to foster exchanges between researchers from developing countries and other researches.
