皆様： メーリングリストをお借りして、 KEST03国際会議におけるワークショップの2nd CFPをご案内させていただきます。 どうぞよろしくお願い申し上げます。 程 京徳＠埼玉大学 ************************************************************ SECOND CALL FOR POSITION PAPERS AND REVIEWERS International Workshop on "Research Directions and Challenge Problems in Advanced Information Systems Engineering" http://www.aise.ics.saitama-u.ac.jp/KEST/KEST03W/ in First International Conference on Knowledge Economy and Development of Science and Technology Honjo City, Akita Prefecture, Japan September 16 - 19, 2003 http://www.akita-pu.ac.jp/system/KEST2003/ http://www.aise.ics.saitama-u.ac.jp/KEST/KEST03/ MOTIVATION AND OBJECTIVE "As long as a branch of science offers an abundance of problems, so long is it alive: a lack of problems foreshadows extinction or the cessation of independent development." - David Hilbert, 1900. "The formulation of a problem is often more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill. To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, requires creative imagination and marks real advance in science." - Albert Einstein, 1938. Problems are the vitality of any science. To identify and present various new (novel) research directions and challenge problems in advanced information systems engineering is very important to the development and progress of computer and information sciences as well as other technical and/or engineering sciences in the information society of the 21st century. The objective of the workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from various different areas to discuss and exchange ideas, opinions, and information on new (novel) research directions, open issues, and challenge problems in advanced information systems engineering. PAPER SUBMISSION Contributions to the workshop may be on any topic related to advanced information systems engineering. However, we especially encourage interdisciplinary submissions. Every submission should include at least the following parts: 1. The definition of a new (novel) research direction, open issue, or challenge problem: What is it? 2. The background and motivation of the research direction, open issue, or challenge problem: Why should we pay our attentions to it? 3. Explanations about the significance of the research direction, open issue, or challenge problem: How important is it?4. Descriptions about the state-of-the-art of the research direction, open issue,
or challenge problem: Is there some initial work on it? How difficult is it? 5. Prospects about impacts of work and/or solution of the research direction, open issue, or challenge problem: What will be influenced by it? Authors who wish to contribute to the workshop are invited to submit their position papers (not exceed 5000 words) in the IEEE-CS proceedings format (http://computer.org/cspress/instruct.htm) as a PDF or MS-Word file via the workshop web site at: http://www.aise.ics.saitama-u.ac.jp/KEST/KEST03W/ REVIEW AND EVALUATIONAll submissions will be reviewed and judged on originality, significance, and clarity.
A high priority for acceptance will be given to those submissions that address a very novel research direction, open issue, or challenge problem.We do not require that every submission give a solution to the issue or problem,
though any submission presented both problem and its solution is welcome. Researchers and practitioners who intend to review submitted papers please send an e-mail to workshop organizer, Professor Jingde Cheng. PRESENTATION AND PUBLICATION It is assumed that by submitting a position paper to the workshop,the author(s) intend to present it at the KEST03 conference, if the paper is accepted.
Papers may be presented orally by the author in the usual oral presentation form, or be presented electronically by the workshop organizer in behalf of the author, in the case that the author cannot come to the conference, by running a RealTime,
QuickTime, MPEG, AVI, or MOV movie file with voice prepared by the author. The conference organizers will provide presenters with all facilities for paper presentation including projectors and computers.All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of KEST03 which will be available
at the conference.Papers presented at the conference will be selected and edited by the conference organizers and published in book form by an international publisher after the conference.
IMPORTANT DATES July 15, 2003 Deadline for position paper submission July 31, 2000 Notification of acceptance/rejection August 15, 2000 Final camera ready papers and early registration due LOCATION AND ACCOMMODATIONPlease see KEST03 conference web site: http://www.aise.ics.saitama-u.ac.jp/KEST/KEST03/
