Los Alamitos, California (PRWEB) November 25, 2011
The IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Semantic Computing is working with other professional societies to sponsor an interdisciplinary conference on Internet operating systems. Phillip Sheu, committee chair said, We expect this conference to initiate important research for computer science as a whole.
Believed to be the largest conference of its kind hosted by the IEEE Computer Society, the IOS conference will be held March 21-23 at the Hyatt Regency in Irvine, California. Authors are invited to submit papers by November 27. For more information, visit http://www.icios.org/.
This is our first conference on Internet operating systems. We will continue this series and believe more colleagues will join us next year, said Sheu, an electrical engineering and computer science professor at University of California Irvines Henry Samueli School of Engineering.
The effort is in keeping with the Technical and Conference Activities Board initiative to promote interdisciplinary activities between computer science and other disciplines.
Analogous to a desktop operating system, an IOS brings together computational technologies that let users manage Internet resources (including documents, devices, and applications). Unlike a desktop operating system, however, an IOS involves millions of people and requires technologies that can stimulate the generation of content from a wide spectrum of human activities including personal, professional, cultural, social, and many others.
Interdisciplinary in nature (and intra-disciplinary within computer science), the ultimate success of IOS requires that new, synergized technologies be developed from various disciplines such as computer science, social sciences, engineering, physical sciences, medicine, law, business, and humanities. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
