THE CONFERENCE SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES
This conference covers the latest advances in intelligent and adaptive solutions for social networks and collaborative systems that lead to gain competitive advantages in business and academia scenarios. The ultimate aim is to stimulate research that will lead to the creation of responsive environments for networking and, at longer-term, the development of adaptive, secure, mobile, and intuitive intelligent systems for collaborative work and learning. Industry and academic researchers, professionals and practitioners are invited to exchange their experiences and present their ideas in this field.
After its kick-off in Barcelona, Spain (2009) the 2nd INCoS 2010 will be held in Thessaloniki, Greece a city with rich culture and history, second major economic, industrial, commercial and political centre in Greece.
The conference is organized by: Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece & University of Macedonia, Greece
TOPICS OF INTEREST
Topics of main interest for this conference are (but not restricted to) :
-- Internet applications that shift to an emergent Web paradigm, which locates people at the very center of networks and exploits the value of people's connections and relations.
-- Web 2.0 and its major role to enable a new generation of social networks and web-based communities.
-- Social network analysis as a rapidly growing field to investigate the dynamics and structure of intelligent Web-based networking and collaborative systems.
-- Virtual campuses and organizations that strongly leverage intelligent networking and collaborative systems by a great variety of formal and informal electronic relations (business-to-business, peer-to-peer and many types of online collaborative learning interactions).
-- Latest and powerful technologies based on Grid and Wireless (Mobile) infrastructure as well as Cloud computing.
-- Design and evaluation of Collaborative and Networking applications seen from various challenging perspectives, such as: effective and efficient knowledge management, context and user modeling techniques, exploitation of semantic web technologies, powerful adaptive solutions, design of personalized environments, dynamic formats of information shared among peers and full support for virtual communities of practice (organization, management, mobility and security).
