As data and knowledge volume keep increasing while global means for information dissemination continue to diversify, new methods, modeling paradigms, and structures are needed to support efficiently the mounting scalability requirements.

In the last few years we have seen the proliferation of the use of heterogeneous distributed systems, ranging from simple Networks of Workstations, to highly complex Grid Computing environments. Such computational paradigms have been preferred due to their reduced costs and inherent scalability, but their efficient usage pose many challenges in terms of information access, storage and retrieval as well as in terms of algorithms for efficiently manage, transfer, and analyze huge volume of data and knowledge.

Grid computing, P2P technology, data and knowledge bases, distributed information retrieval technology, and networking technology should all converge to address the scalability concern. Furthermore, with the advent of emerging computing architectures - e.g. SMTs, GPUs, Multicores, etc. - the importance of designing techniques explicitly targeting these systems, is becoming more and more important.

The Third International Conference on Scalable Information Systems will focus on a wide array of scalability issues and investigate new approaches to tackle problems arising from the ever-growing size and complexity of information of all kinds.


The conference invites original technical papers that were not previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Topics include, but are not limited to:

* Scalable Parallel and Distributed Information Retrieval
* Scalable Grid Information Systems
* Scalable Peer-to-Peer Systems
* Scalable Mobile Systems
* Scalable Web Services
* Scalable Sensor Networks and Systems
* Scalable Systems and Conceptual Modeling
* Scalable Multimedia Information Systems
* Scalability Issues on Emerging Computing Architectures (SMTs, GPUs, Multicores)
* Scalable Data Mining

* Parallel and Distributed Computing Systems
* Middleware Technology for Scalable Computing
* Information Security
* Architectures for Scalability
* Networking for Scalable Information Systems
* Evaluation Metrics for Scalability
* Enterprise Information Systems and Applications
* Very Large Databases
* Compression Techniques for Scalability
* Optimizing Compiling Techniques for Scalable Parallel Systems


Proposals for half-day workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference are solicited. A maximum of 2 pages, including the workshop name, its scope, a list of topics of interests, and a brief CV of the organizer(s), should be submitted to Salvatore Orlando, University of Venice by the same deadline as paper submission.


Proposal for half-day tutorials should be submitted to Pavel Zezula, Masaryk University, Brno .
