FISA 2016

Monday, June 13, 2017 to Thursday, June 16, 2017

Future Internet Services and Applications (FISA 2017), a track of the 25th IEEE WETICE Conference, will be held in Paris, France, on 13-16 June 2017. The proliferation of online services and applications facilitated considerably our lives. Nowadays we can easily communicate and share data with other users using these services. On-line services are also a building corner of ICT application such as e-commerce, e-government and e-health applications that facilitate many administrative and personal tasks. However, several emerging issues and challenges have to be considered while setting up these future Internet services and applications. In particular, we explore three different key aspects of future Internet services and applications:

  • Modeling, Provisioning and Management
  • Data Protection
  • Data Collection, Storage and Analysis

The goal of this track is to offer academic and industrial researchers and practitioners a platform for discussions related to these aspects of future Internet services and applications.


We target contributions from both academia and industrials on the following topics, but not limited to:

  • Modeling, Provisioning and Management
    • Collaborative technologies for QoS Management of SOA and Cloud architectures
    • Service Virtualization for SOA & Collaborative Management of Virtualized Cloud Resources
    • Monitoring of Cloud Services
    • Reconfiguration and recovery of Cloud Services
    • Modeling and Specification of collaborative Cloud services
    • Service Level Agreement (SLA) Negotiation, Automation and Orchestration for Cloud Computing
    • Cloud Federation & Availability and Reliability of Collaborative Cloud
  • Data Protection
    • Privacy and Trust for the Cloud
    • Accountability/Privacy techniques and models
    • Accountability/Privacy of Web and cloud services
    • Accountability/Privacy policy description frameworks, Accountability/Privacy aware software design, development and composition
    • Auditing of cloud services & Accountability evidences
    • Tools and frameworks for accountability
  • Data Collection, Storage and Analysis
    • Elastic databases and storage services
    • Elastic data filtering systems
    • Large scale data analysis techniques and algorithms
    • Anonymity preserving data analysis techniques and algorithms

Winter School SECENTIS 2017

Monday, February 8, 2017 to Friday, February 12, 2017

The Winter School SECENTIS 2017 (Security and Trust of Next Generation Enterprise Information Systems), organized by Fondazione Bruno Kessler in partnership with SAP Labs and University of Trento, will be held in Trento, Italy, on 8-12 February 2017. The SECENTIS Winter School will provide an innovative training to tackle the scientific and technical security challenges raised by the combination of new technologies (e.g., cloud computing, mobile applications, and the Software-as-a-Service paradigm) and to manage the impact of these changes in industry. The School will consist of courses (lectures and tutorials) by experts plus short contributed talks and poster presentations by young researchers. Submissions will be supervised by the School's Scientific Committee. The SECENTIS Project, supporting the school, is an Industrial Doctorate financed by the European Union.
