1st International Workshop on Next Generation Information Systems: Modeling,
Monitoring and Management in Cloud and Fog Computing  (NeGIS 2020)

Co-located with CAiSE'20

June 9th 2020 Grenoble, France




The amount of data and services supported by Information Systems (ISs) has
increased exponentially during the last few years. To improve their
efficiency and reduce costs, modern organizations have been shifting their
services, with part of their ISs, to the Cloud. More recent developments
have shown an inversion towards the decentralization and distribution of
applications and services in the huge pool of devices and computing
facilities available nearer to the customers. This shift is due to the
impact of the Internet of Things, which is further increasing the amount of
data to be stored and computed. Fog Computing is the last frontier for ISs,
where data and services can be moved in the continuum of resources between
the cloud and the edge.

In this workshop, we aim to collect contributions investigating issues
related to the management of cloud and fog computing in modern information
systems with a focus, but not limited, on energy efficiency, security, and
privacy, their relations and the trade-off with other requirements such as
response time and throughput. In doing so, we are considering both the
application components of the information system with their complexity, as
well as the management of the data used by such applications. We also
consider the impact of the human in the loop, looking at how the awareness
and the behaviors of users and designers in socio-technical systems can
affect the effective adoption of energy and security policies.

Topics include but are not limited to:
- Modelling Cloud and Fog computing solutions for modern Information
- Monitoring and Managing Information Systems in Cloud and Fog Computing
- Models, methods, and tools for data management in Cloud and Fog Computing
- Energy-awareness and sustainability in Information Systems: metrics and
- Quality of Service, energy efficiency and security in Mobile Edge
- Methodologies and tools for energy efficiency and security compliance in
Cloud and Fog computing
- Adaptive approaches to manage energy consumption, QoS, and security of
applications and systems
- Energy and Security aware blockchain solutions
- Energy and security requirements in Information Systems and
Socio-Technical Systems
Energy and security behaviors in Socio-Technical Systems

Negis2020 will be co-located in Grenoble with the 32nd International
Conference on Advanced Information Systems (CAISE'20, 8-12 June 2020).



The best paper will be considered for publication in a high-level
international journal. To be selected the paper must include a validation
of the proposed approach. The authors of the paper selected as the best
paper will have to provide an extended version for submission to a fast
evaluation track.



Abstract submission: 20th February 2020

Full paper submissions: 26th February 2020

Notification of acceptance: 1st April 2020

Camera-ready copies: 7th April 2020

Workshop: 9th June 2020



Submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=caise2020

The workshop is addressed to researchers with a strong background in the
field of Modeling, Monitoring and Management of information systems in
Cloud and Fog Computing. Contributions will be evaluated for their
relevance to the workshop topics and will be blind reviewed by at least
three PC members. The workshop will be divided into two main parts. In the
first part, authors of accepted papers will present their work. This part
will be divided into sessions according to the topics emerged from the
contributions. The second part will be a round table for discussing issues
and solutions, aiming at enhancing collaboration.

Contributions are accepted in the form of:

- Full Papers describe original solutions (theoretical, methodological or
conceptual) in the field of sustainable IS engineering.

- *S*hort Papers describe an initial approach towards an innovative ea in
the field of sustainable IS engineering.

Papers should be submitted in PDF format. The results described must be
unpublished and must not be under review elsewhere. Submissions must
conform to Springer’s LNBIP format and should not exceed 12 pages (6 pages
for short papers), including all text, figures, references, and appendices.

Authors should consult Springer’s authors' guidelines and use their
proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or Word, for the preparation of
their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs
<https://goo.gl/hbsa4D> in their papers. In addition, the corresponding
author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper,
must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author
signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on
the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to
the authorship of the papers cannot be made.
