Computing is increasingly ubiquitous, with everyday items including smart-phones, cars, clothes and household appliances gaining increasingly sophisticated computing and communication capacities. With this developing Internet of things, it is just a matter of time before devices have to collaborate and compete with each other as well as users, in order to provide better services to mankind.
These embedded computer agents which are increasingly autonomous, distributed, smart and connected present major challanges and potential opportunities for information system development theory and practice. How can these technologies and methods be incorporated in information systems to enhance organizational capabilities? What tools, methods and architectures should be used? What are the implications on organizational design and society? It seems that various intelligent, agent-based, and model-driven approaches provide a good foundation to study these issues, but how should they be adapted to reflect current information system development methods? Are there good practices from industry? We hope that these and similar questions will be answered by papers in this track.
The track will discuss new methodological approaches towards the development of complex ubiquitous information systems as well as tools for their modeling, simulation and analysis. The focus of the proposed track would be on the rather soft issues of ubiquitous computing including model-driven engineering, software development, (social/organizational) agent-based simulation, influence of systems on organization and society as well as new and disruptive technologies.
