CFP: IEEE International Conference SITIS 2007

      Call For Papers   

            The 3rd IEEE International Conference SITIS 2007
               		 December 16-19 2007
                	Jiangong Jinjiang Hotel
                 	  Shanghai, China
               	(in cooperation with ACM

The SITIS conference is dedicated to research on the technologies used to
represent, share and process
information in various forms, ranging from signal, image, and multimedia data to
traditional structured data
and semi-structured data found in the web. SITIS spans two inter-related
research domains that increasingly
play a key role in connecting systems across network centric environments to
allow distributed computing
and information sharing.

SITIS 2007 aims to provide a forum for high quality presentations on research
activities centered on three main tracks:

- Track Information Management & Retrieval Technologies (IMRT)
- Track Web-Based Information Technologies & Distributed Systems (WITDS)
- Track Signal & Image Technologies (SIT)

Submission and publication
SITIS 20007 invites submission of high quality and original papers on the topics
of the major tracks described below.
All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers for
technical merit, originality, significance
and relevance to the topics of the corresponding track. Papers must be up to 8
pages long and follow IEEE double
columns publication format.

Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and published
IEEE Computer Society and referenced
in IEEE explore and major indexes. The proceedings will be mailed by the IEEE CS
press directly to registered
authors after the conference. CD copies of the proceeding will be available
during the conference.
Selected accepted papers will be considered for publication in major journals.
Tutorial proposals should be submitted to
