OVERVIEW

Information Systems Development (ISD) progresses rapidly, continually
creating new challenges for the professionals involved. New concepts
and approaches emerge constantly in this field. Progress in ISD comes
from research as well as from practice. Over the past 16 years, the
ISD conference has acted as an international forum for the exchange of
ideas and experiences between researchers, academy and industry, and
as a means to stimulate exploration of new solutions.

The 17th International Conference on Information Systems Development
(ISD 2008) will be organized by the University of Cyprus. The
conference venue is the exclusive 5* Anabelle Hotel in Paphos,
one of the most well known touristic locations of Cyprus.

The theme of ISD 2008 is "Towards a Service-Provision Society".
The conference features a number of tracks covering a wide spectrum
of contemporary topics in the field of Information Systems
Development. These tracks are the following ones:

       * Information Systems Research Methodology
       * Service-Oriented Analysis and Design of Information Systems
       * IT Service Management
       * Philosophical and Theoretical Issues in ISD
       * Model-Driven Engineering in ISD
       * Enterprise Systems Development & Adoption
       * Intelligent Information Systems
