Iberian peninsula and islands

BRIEF OVERVIEW

"OnTheMove (OTM) to Meaningful Internet Systems and Ubiquitous Computing" co-locates five successful related and complementary conferences:
- International Symposium on Distributed Objects and Applications (DOA'07)
http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf/index.html?page=doa2007cfp

- International Conference on Ontologies, Databases and Applications of Semantics (ODBASE'07)
http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf/index.html?page=odbase2007cfp

- International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems (CoopIS'07)
http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf/index.html?page=coopis2007cfp

- International Symposium on Grid computing, high-performAnce and Distributed Applications (GADA'07)
http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf/index.html?page=gada2007cfp

- International Symposium on Information Security (IS'07)
http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf/index.html?page=is2007cfp

Each conference covers multiple research vectors, viz. theory (e.g. underlying formalisms), conceptual (e.g. technical designs and conceptual solutions) and applications (e.g. case studies and industrial best practices).
All five conferences share the scientific study of the distributed, conceptual and ubiquitous aspects of modern computing systems, and share the resulting application-pull created by the WWW.
