                  Technically sponsored by IEEE France & IEEE SMCS
                       with the cooperation of IFIP WG 2.6
                               October 27-30, 2009

Description and Objectives

In the world of the Internet, the rapid growth and exponential use of  
digital medias leads to the emergence of
virtual environments namely digital ecosystems composed of multiple  
and independent entities such as individuals,
organizations, services, software and applications sharing one or  
several missions and focusing on the interactions
and inter-relationships among them. The digital ecosystem exhibits  
self-organizing environments, thanks to the
re-combination and evolution of its ?digital components?, in which  
resources provided by each entity are properly
conserved, managed and used. The underlying resources mainly  
comprehend data management, innovative services,
computational intelligence and self-organizing platforms. Due to the  
multi-disciplinary nature of digital ecosystems
and their characteristics, they are highly complex to study and  
design. This also leads to a poor understanding as to
how managing resources will empower digital ecosystems to be  
innovative and value-creating. The application of Information
Technologies has the potential to enable the understanding of how  
entities request resources and ultimately interact to
create benefits and added-values, impacting business practices and  
knowledge. These technologies can be improved through
novel techniques, models and methodologies for fields such as data  
management, web technologies, networking, security,
human-computer interactions, artificial intelligence, e-services and  
self-organizing systems to support the establishment
of digital ecosystems and manage their resources.

The International Conference on Management of Emergent Digital  
EcoSystems (EDES) aims to develop and bring together
a diverse community from academia, research laboratories and industry  
interested in exploring the manifold challenges
and issues related to resource management of Digital Ecosystems and  
how current approaches and technologies can be
evolved and adapted to this end. The conference seeks related original  
research papers, industrial papers and proposals
for demonstrations, and tutorials and workshops.


We solicit original research and technical papers not published  
elsewhere. The papers can be theoretical, practical and application  
oriented on the following themes (but not limited to):

- Digital Ecosystem Infrastructure
- Web Technologies
- Social Networks
- Data & Knowledge Management Systems
- Multimedia Information Retrieval
- Ontology Management
- Services systems and Engineering
- E-Services , E-Learning, E-Humanities and E-Government
- Emergent Intelligence
- Game Theory
- Networks and Protocols
- Security & Privacy
- Standardization and Extensible Languages
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Business Intelligence
- B2B, B2C, B2A, E-Commerce, E-Business, E-Marketing and E-Procurement
- Digital Library
- Open Source

Paper Submission

Submissions must be in an electronic form as PDF format and should be  
uploaded using the conference website.
Submissions should be at most 8 ACM single-space printed pages. Papers  
that fail to comply with length limit
will be rejected. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 peer  
reviewers. Selection criteria will
include: relevance, significance, impact, originality, technical  
soundness, and quality of presentation.
Preference will be given to submissions that take strong or  
challenging positions on important emergent topics
related to Digital Ecosystems. At least one author should attend the  
conference to present the paper.
The conference Proceedings will be published by ACM and indexed by the  
ACM Digital Library.
