WorldCIST'15 - 3rd World Conference on Information Systems and Technologies, to be held at Ponta Delgada, São Miguel, Azores, Portugal, 1 - 3 April 2015, is a global forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, results, experiences and concerns in the several perspectives of Information Systems and Technologies. Azores is ranked as the second most beautiful archipelago in the world by National Geographic.
Pervasive Information Systems (PIS) extend the Information System paradigm by introducing a set of novel characteristics into the society. This workshop (http://www.aisti.eu/worldcist15/index.php/workshops/pis
) aims to discuss topics related to PIS, evaluate the importance for the society and the creation of new knowledge overcoming temporal and local barriers.
This workshop is focused on demonstrating how to take advantages from this new sort of information systems and which kind of solutions can be developed in order to support the decision making process anywhere and anytime. PIS 2015 is the ideal place for bringing together the researchers who are working in this particular area of information systems in order to promote discussion and explore new scope of scientific contributions.
Having conscience of the most recent situation in Europe and the Horizon 2020 strategy, a deeper analysis should be made on this emerging topic. Authors are invited to submit unpublished work, contributing with research papers, case studies and demonstrations that present original scientific results, methodological aspects, concepts and approaches in the multidisciplinary field of PIS. Authors should present new trends, discuss future challenges and understand how information affects the way humans interact with the built environments occupied by them.
Workshop topics include, but are not limited to:
Ubiquitous Data Mining;
Pervasive Intelligent Systems;
Pervasive Intelligent Decision Support Systems;
Pervasive Systems Based on Cloud Computing;
Decision Support Systems;
Interoperability and Pervasiveness;
Pervasive Business Intelligence;
Life-styling pervasive solutions;
Pervasive environments and software architectures;
Pervasiveness and Security in Information Systems;
Mobile and ubiquitous solutions;
Pervasive Information Systems Applied to society solutions (e.g. Healthcare, Finances,
Usability and acceptability of pervasive system;
Ubiquitous devices in the storage, update, and transmission of data.
