13th International Conference on
Agia Napa, Cyprus, Oct 31 - Nov 4, 2005


Proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag

The Cooperative Information System (CIS) paradigm has been growing and
gaining substance in technological infrastructure (e.g., middleware
and Web technologies) and application areas (e.g., Business Process
Management, e-Commerce, e-Government, and virtual enterprises). The
paradigm involves large networks of information systems that manage
large amounts of information and computing services and cooperate
as-needed to fullfil their mission.

The CoopIS conference series has established a prestigious
international forum for exchanging ideas and results on scientific
research from a variety of Computer Science areas, such as CSCW,
Internet data management, electronic commerce, human-computer
interaction, workflow management, web services, agent technologies,
and software architectures.

As in previous years, CoopIS'05 will be part of a joint event with two
other conferences, Distributed Object and Applications (DOA) and
Ontologies, Databases and Applications of Semantics (ODBASE). The
technical programme for the three conferences will be organized within
the global theme "On the Move to Meaningful Internet Systems". All
three events will be hosted in Cyprus during the week October
31-November 4 2005. More details about the federated event can be
found at http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf.

CoopIS'05 is intended to provide a platform for a useful exchange
between theoreticians and practitioners, and to foster the
cross-fertilization of ideas in the following (but not limited) areas:

* Business Process Management
o Workflow management
o Business intelligence
o Configurable information systems
o Web services, choreography
o Business process execution languages

* Software and information services for CIS
o Web information systems and services
o Middleware technologies, mediators, and wrappers
o Interoperability, XML, semantic interoperability
o Multi-databases
o Mobile and wireless systems and protocols
o Ubiquitous computing environments and tools
o Security and privacy in CIS
o Human-Computer Interactions

* Agent technologies, systems and architectures for CIS
o Peer-to-peer and agent technologies
o Markets, auctions, exchanges, and coalitions
o Negotiation protocols, matchmaking, and brokering
o Multi-agents and agent societies
o Self-organizing systems, service description
o Thrust, learning, perception, and actions in agents
o Distributed problem solving, peer-to-peer cooperation
o Concurrent engineering and other groupware frameworks

* CIS applications and modeling
o E-commerce, e-government, supply chain, homecare, CAD,
e-learning, e-teaching, transportation
o Use of information in organizations
o Computer-supported cooperative work
o Enterprise knowledge management
o Data and knowledge modeling
o Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality

* Challenging issues
o (Semantic) Interoperability
o Multiple paradigms for CIS
o Forms of transparency, negotiation, optimization (e.g.,
queries, indexing, ...)
o Multiple perspective representations
o Reasoning techniques for CIS
o Self-organisation and emergent behaviour in CIS and databases
o Scalable infrastructures for discovery and composition of services in CIS
o Multi-disciplinary approaches to CIS
o CIS systems and the Semantic Web and Grid Services
o Pervasive transactional processing

Acceptance Notification August 10, 2005
Final Version Due August 25, 2005
Conference October 31 - November 4, 2005


All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality,
significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All
papers will be refereed by at least three members of the program
committee, and at least two will be experts from industry in the case
of practice reports. All submissions must be in English. Submissions
must not exceed 18 pages in the final camera-ready paper
style. Submissions must be laid out according to the final
camera-ready formatting instructions and must be submitted in PDF

The final proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS
(Lecture Notes in Computer Science). Author instructions can be found
at: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html

Failure to comply with the above formatting instructions for submitted
papers will lead to the outright rejection of the paper without

Failure to commit to presentation at the conference automatically
excludes a paper from the proceedings.
