CoopIS 2018: 26th International Conference on COOPERATIVE INFORMATION SYSTEMS, Oct 24-26, 2018

Cooperative Information Systems (CIS) facilitate the cooperation between individuals, organisations, smart devices, and systems of systems, by providing flexible, scalable and intelligent services to enterprises, public institutions and user communities. As a result, people and smart devices can interact, share information and work together across physical barriers. The domain of CIS integrates research results from different related computing areas, such as: distributed systems, coordination technologies, collaborative decision making, enterprise architecture, business process management and conceptual modelling.
In recent years, several innovative technologies have emerged: Cloud Computing, Service Oriented Computing, the Internet of Things, Linked Open Data, Semantic Systems, Collective Awareness Platforms, Block Chain, Processes as a Service, etc, that enable the next generation of CISs.
In developing the next generation CISs, research is needed towards (1) the applicability and use of the above mentioned innovative technologies, (2) approaches to develop CISs in particular catering towards the multitude of stakeholders involved in the development of socio-cyber-physical systems, and (3) associated modelling techniques to express and analyse the different aspects of these systems in cohesion.
The CoopIS conference series has established itself as a major international forum for the exchange of ideas and results from scientific research and practical experiences in the fields mentioned above.
As in previous years, CoopIS’18 will be part of a joint event with other conferences, in the context of the OTM Federated Conferences (“OnTheMove”), covering different aspects of distributed information systems.


Topics that are addressed by CoopIS’18 are logically grouped in five broad thematic areas, and include but are not limited to:
