Aims and Scope

The SITIS conference is dedicated to research on the technologies used to represent, share and process information in various forms, ranging from signal, image, and multimedia data to traditional structured data and semi-structured data found in the web. SITIS spans two inter-related research domains that increasingly play a key role in connecting systems across network centric environments to allow distributed computing and information sharing. SITIS 2016 aims to provide a forum for high-quality presentations on research activities centered on four main tracks and thirteen workshops.

Track on Signal Image & Vision Technologies (SIVT)

The SIVT track focuses on recent developments in digital signal processing and pays particular attention to evolutions vision, image analysis, pattern analysis and recognition, coding and authentication, and retrieval

Main topics

  • Image acquisition, vision
  • Image Processing and Analysis
  • Signal processing
  • Applications
  • Image/Video Coding and Authentication

Track on Intelligent Web Computing and Applications (I-WeCA)

The I-WeCA track focuses on emerging concepts, architectures, protocols, and methodologies for both information management on the Web and the Internet of Things technologies that connect unlimited numbers of smart objects to make our environment more interactive.

Main topics

  • Data semantics and web-centric systems
  • Big Data Management and Analytics
  • Service-based Computing
  • Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems
  • Grid and Cloud Computing
  • Information Security and Privacy
  • Applications and Tools

Track on Multimedia Information Retrieval and Application (MIRA)

The focus of the “Multimedia Information Retrieval and Application” (MIRA) track is on emerging modeling, representation and retrieval techniques that take into account the amount, type and diversity of multimedia information accessible in distributed computing environment.

Main topics

  • Multimedia content analysis
  • Multimedia Application for Information Retrieval
  • Retrieval and annotation of big multimedia data
  • Multimedia systems, services, architecture and implementations
  • Distributed multimedia systems
  • Multimedia security, rights management and forensics
  • Social networks, social media and Crowdsourcing

Social Networks, Large Networks and their Applications (SLNA)

Social networks raise new research challenges due to the numerous emerging needs and applications. The focus of this track is on emerging and novel concepts, architectures and methodologies for social and more generally large networks analysis, tools and applications, including issues related to complex graphs, semantics, big data, and security.

Main topics

  • Social Network Analysis – methods, algorithms, processes
  • Social analytics tools
  • Social Networks and Security
  • Architectures and methods for social network management
  • User-centric applications
  • Large networks

Submission and publication

Papers must be up to 8 pages and follow the IEEE double-column format. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 peer reviewers. Papers will be evaluated based on relevance, significance, impact, originality, technical soundness, and quality of presentation. At least one author should attend the conference to present an accepted paper.

All papers accepted for presentation at the main tracks and workshops will be included in the conference proceedings, which will be published by IEEE Computer Society. Only the actually presented papers will be referenced in IEEE Xplore Digital Library, Scopus, DBLP and major indexes.

Paper submission will only be online via SITIS 2016 submission site:
