The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, research, standards, implementations, running experiments, applications, and industrial case studies. Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal in the following, but not limited to, topic areas. All tracks are open to both research and industry contributions, in terms of Regular papers, Posters, Work in progress, Technical/marketing/business presentations, Demos, Tutorials, and Panels.
The conference is co-located with other events that are part of DigitalWorld 2012

ITEA 2, the follow-up to the successful ITEA programme, is a strategic pan-European programme for advanced pre-competitive R&D in Software-intensive Systems and Services (SiSS). ITEA 2 stimulates and supports projects that will give European industry a leading edge in the area of SiSS (in which software represents a significant segment in terms of system functionality, system development cost & risk and system development time).
The ambition is to mobilise a total of 20,000 person-years over the full eight-year period of the programme, requiring a significant increase in investment . This ambition is based on experience in ITEA, the need to further close the gap in R&D investment (3% of GDP, Lisbon objective) and the ever growing importance of SiSS.
As one of the main EUREKA cluster programmes ITEA 2 has close links with other EUREKA projects and the Framework Programmes of the European Commission. Our projects are supported financially by all members of the EUREKA framework.

The goal of this symposium, which will be the fourth in the series, is to bring together researchers and practitioners to advance the states of the art and practice in secure software engineering. Being one of the few conference-level events dedicated to this topic, it explicitly aims to bridge the software engineering and security engineering communities, and promote cross-fertilization.

       - Cloud, grid, and internet/web computing
       - Databases, and information and data management
       - Dependable computing
       - Distributed computing
       - Local and distributed storage
       - Management, autonomics, and control
       - Measurement, monitoring, analysis, and diagnostics
       - Mobile, personal, and pervasive computing
       - Parallel and concurrent computing
       - Programming-language support and runtime systems
       - Real-time and embedded systems
       - Security
       - Sensor nets and tiny devices
   * Experience with existing systems
   * Negative results / reproduction or refutation of previous results


Hosted by the Government of Tanzania through the Tanzania Commission for Science and Technology, Supported by the European Commission and African Union Commission and Technical Co-Sponsored by IEEE, IST-Africa 2012 will take place in Tanzania, 09 - 11 May 2012.

Part of the IST-Africa Initiative, which is supported by the European Commission under the ICT Theme of Framework Programme 7 (FP7), IST-Africa 2012 is the seventh in an Annual Conference Series which brings together senior representatives from leading commercial, government & research organisations across Africa and from Europe, to bridge the Digital Divide by sharing knowledge, experience, lessons learnt and good practice and discussing policy related issues.

IST-Africa 2012 is focused on applied ICT and the core thematic areas include
- eHealth & Health Information Systems
- eInfrastructures
- Living Labs
- Technology Enhanced Learning and ICT Skills
- Digital Libraries and Intelligent Content
- Open Source Software - Applications
- ICT for eInclusion and eAccessibility
- ICT for Environmental Sustainability
- RFID and Networked Enterprise
- Cloud Computing
- eGovernment & eDemocracy
- Mobile Applications (incl M-Education, Social Networking)
- Cyber Security
- Transformation of Research Results into Local Innovation
- IPv6


The central topic is Innovation by Collaboration and Entrepreneurial Partnerships.
Our community, consisting of academics, industrialists, managers, entrepreneurs and politicians, offers a big platform for knowledge transfer, scientific and applied discussions and active networking. Scientific results and practical contributions will be discussed in paper or workshop sessions. Key note speeches offer insights to relevant topics from science to policy to industry. Networking events provide the possibility of launching new projects and ensure a proactive knowledge transfer.

Data centers have become an integral part of the backbone infrastructure for information technology. In particular, they provide a cost-efficient solution for provisioning a wide range of computing resources in diverse environments such as for business, scientific, or mobile purposes. Owing to the rapid growth of user-defined and user-generated programs, applications and content, the complexity of deploying and operating data centers is expected to increase. Considering the high volume of mixed workloads, the diversity of services offered, and the increasing mobility of users across geographically distributed areas, the performance optimization of data centers has become ever more necessary and challenging, especially concerning criteria such as scalability, reliability, manageability, power efficiency, area density, and operating costs. As a result, adaptive and autonomic optimization strategies are essential for managing the multi-dimensional complexity of data center performance.

The goal of this workshop is to promote a community-wide discussion to find and identify suitable strategies to enable effective and scalable data center performance optimizations. We are looking for papers that present new techniques, introduce new methodologies, propose new research directions, or discuss strategies for resolving open performance problems at all layers of a data center.

The objectives of the 6th ACM International Conference on Distributed Event-Based Systems (DEBS) are to provide a forum dedicated to the dissemination of original research, the discussion of practical insights, and the reporting of relevant experience relating to event-based computing that was previously scattered across several scientific and professional communities. The conference also aims at providing a forum for academia and industry to exchange ideas, for example, through industry papers and demo papers.
