Brief Description:

Because of proliferation of the Internet, most projects are taking place in heterogeneous environments where people, information and working processes are distributed.  Work is often dynamic and cooperative and involves multiple actors with different kinds of needs.  In these settings there is a need to help people coordinate their activities, share documents and information, and manage access to shared resources. 

 

This special session on Cooperative Distributed Information Systems - to be held for the 2nd time as part of the 2003International Symposium on Collaborative Technologies and Systems (CTS'03) - will focus on the area of cooperative and distributed databases, and emerging distributed and mobile object technologies and environments.  The aim is to have a dedicated session that fosters closer interactions among researchers and users communities, providing an excellent opportunity for them to meet and discuss their ideas.  We invite original contributions from researchers in academia and computer industry on these emerging and important areas of information technology. 

 

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Cooperative Databases

- Advanced transaction management

- Concurrency control

- Communication paradigms

- Mobility impact

- Workspace support

- Effective and appropriate interfaces

- Collaborative annotation of temporal media

 

Cooperative Web Technologies

- Emerging models and standards

- Heterogeneous systems on the web

- Middleware technologies

- Web data integration and wrappers

- Agent-based distributed systems
