WorldCIST'16 - 4rd World Conference on Information Systems and
Technologies, to be held at Recife, Brazil, 22 - 24 March 2016, is a
global forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss
the most recent innovations, trends, results, experiences and concerns
in the several perspectives of Information Systems and Technologies.
Pervasive Information Systems (PIS) extend the Information System
paradigm by introducing a set of novel characteristics into the society.
This workshop aims to discuss topics related to PIS, evaluate the
importance for the society and the creation of new knowledge overcoming
temporal and local barriers. This workshop is focused on demonstrating
how to take advantages from this new sort of information systems and
which kind of solutions can be developed in order to support the
decision making process anywhere and anytime. PIS 2015 is the ideal
place for bringing together the researchers who are working in this
particular area of information systems in order to promote discussion
and explore new scope of scientific contributions.
Having conscience of the most recent situation in Europe and the Horizon
2020 strategy, a deeper analysis should be made on this emerging topic.
Authors are invited to submit unpublished work, contributing with
research papers, case studies and demonstrations that present original
scientific results, methodological aspects, concepts and approaches in
the multidisciplinary field of PIS. Authors should present new trends,
discuss future challenges and understand how information affects the way
humans interact with the built environments occupied by them.
Workshop topics include, but are not limited to:
* Ubiquitous Data Mining;
* Pervasive Intelligent Systems;
* Pervasive Intelligent Decision Support Systems;
* Pervasive Systems Based on Cloud Computing;
* Decision Support Systems;
* Interoperability and Pervasiveness;
* Pervasive Business Intelligence;
* Sensor-based systems;
* Life-styling pervasive solutions;
* Pervasive environments and software architectures;
* Pervasiveness and Security in Information Systems;
* Mobile and ubiquitous solutions;
* Pervasive Information Systems Applied to society solutions (e.g.
* Education, Government);
* Usability and acceptability of pervasive system;
* Ubiquitous devices in the storage, update, and transmission of data.
*Submission and Paper Format*
Submissions must be of one of two types:
Full paper:Finished and consolidated R&D works. These papers are
assigned a 10-page limit;
Short paper: Ongoing works with relevant preliminary results open to
discussion. These papers are assigned a 7-page limit.
Submitted papers must comply with the format of Advances in Intelligent
Systems and Computing Series (seeInstructions for Authors at Springer
Website or download aDOC example be written in English, must not have been published before, not be under review for
any other conference, workshop or publication and not include any
information leading to the authors’ identification. Therefore, the
authors’ names, affiliations and bibliographic references should not be
included in the version for evaluation by the Program Committee. This
information should only be included in the camera-ready version, saved
in Word or Latex format and also in PDF format.
All papers will be subjected to a “double-blind review” by at least
two/three members of the Program Committee. Based on Program Committee
evaluation, a paper can be rejected or accepted by the Conference
Chairs. In the latter case, it can be accepted as the type originally
submitted or as another type. Thus, full papers can be accepted as short
papers. The authors of accepted full papers will have 15 minutes to
present their work in a Conference Work Session; approximately 5 minutes
of discussion will follow each presentation. The authors of accepted
short papers and company papers will have 11 minutes to present their
work in a Conference Work Session; approximately 4 minutes of discussion
will follow each presentation.
All papers should be submitted using the EasyChair system, available in
the following link:

*Publication and Indexing*
Workshop papers will be published in the Springer Conference
Proceedings. To ensure that a paper is published in the Proceedings, at
least one of the authors must be fully registered by 11th of January
2015, and the paper must comply with the suggested layout and
page-limit. Additionally, all recommended changes must be addressed by
the authors before they submit the camera-ready version. No more than
one paper per registration will be published in the Conference
Proceedings. An extra fee must be paid for publication of additional
papers, with a maximum of one additional paper per registration.
Full and short papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings by
Springer, in Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing
<a moz-do-not-send="true" class="moz-txt-link-rfc2396E" href="http://www.springer.com/series/11156"><http://www.springer.com/series/11156></a>. Published full and short papers
will be submitted for indexation by ISI, EI-Compendex, SCOPUS and DBLP,
among others, and will be available in the SpringerLink Digital Library.
Extended versions of the best papers accepted and presented at this
workshop may be considered for publication in a Special Issue of a
renowned international journal indexed by ISI, SCOPUS and DBLP.
