NeGis workshop aims to collect contributions and stimulate discussions on next generation information systems, where new technologies such as cloud and fog computing are employed and (sensitive) data are heavily used, produced and distributed.
NEGIS - Next Generation Information Systems: Modeling, Monitoring, and Management in Cloud and Fog Computing
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 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 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 context, the management of ISs can exploit the diversification of the resources available, but at the same time is getting more and more complex and challenging. ISs management should take into consideration the heterogeneity of the cloud/fog infrastructure. Such complex architecture is posing new challenges in the management of modern applications, especially in reference to security, privacy, and energy efficiency. Security and privacy needs to be considered for the amount of sensitive data possibly produced and the high level of distribution of them, while energy efficiency is central, due to the high amount of computational nodes in today’s ISs. These requirements can significantly change from application to application, and a universal solution is not possible. For these reasons, new solutions are needed for monitoring and modeling applications and services in modern ISs, and for enforcing the satisfaction of conflicting requirements.
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 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 of the workshop include but are not limited to:
- Modelling Cloud and Fog computing solutions for modern Information Systems
- 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 measurements
- Quality of Service, energy efficiency and security in Mobile Edge Computing
- 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 behaviours in Socio-Technical Systems
Submission and Deadlines
The emergency situation (COVID 19) impacted heavily on the organization of CAiSE conference and its workshops, NeGIS included. NeGIS will, therefore, be organized as a series of invited talks presented by researchers that are willing to discuss and disseminate their research work (published or un-published) on next generation information systems.
The workshop will host short talks (15 minutes). After each talk, 5 minutes will be reserved for questions.
We ask researchers, who want to present their work, to send to firstname.lastname@example.org a 1 page (max) abstract (by the 8th of May) with the content of their talk and the type of talk (short/standard) they will like to present.
Due to the emergency situation, the registration to CAiSE and the workshop is free both for attendees and presenters! If you are willing to assist to the workshop and/or present please visit CAiSE registration page and register before the 1st of June.
