The aim of the conference is to deliver a platform of scientific interaction between the three interwoven challenging areas of research and development of future ICT-enabled applications:

  • Software Intensive Systems
  • Complex systems
  • Intelligent Systems


Networks of today are going through a rapid evolution. Different kinds of systems with different characteristics are emerging and they are integrating in heterogeneous networks. For these reasons, there are many interconnection problems which may occur at different levels in the hardware and software design of communicating entities and communication networks. These kinds of networks need to manage an increasing usage demand, provide support for a significant number of services, guarantee their QoS, and optimize the utilization of network resources. Therefore, architectures and algorithms in these networks become very complex and it seems imperative to focus on new models and methods as well as mechanisms, which can enable the network to perform adaptive behaviors. Many new computing technologies have emerged as new paradigms for solving complex problems by enabling large-scale aggregation and sharing of computational, data and other geographically distributed resources. Rapid advances are being reported by many researchers and forums as regards understanding numerous issues in such paradigms, from theoretic to application aspects. Moreover, the continuous development of Internet and the construction of new infrastructures are making possible the development of large scale applications from many fields of science and engineering.

To deal with complexity, we should construct physically instantiated systems that can perceive, understand, and interact with their environment, but also evolve in order to achieve human-like performance in activities requiring context-specific knowledge. This is far beyond the current state of the art and will remain so for many years to come. Therefore, many research efforts are required to make headway towards this vision. The strategic challenges are motivated by recent research in the field of intelligent systems, robotics, neuroscience, artificial intelligence, and cognitive sciences. In recent years, a large community of researchers has begun to realize the importance of brain-body interaction for understanding intelligence and its central role in a wide range of processes including perception, object manipulation, movement, and high-level cognition.

The research challenges include theoretical frameworks based on the notions of embodiment, the dynamical systems metaphor, complete agents rather than individual components, self-reconfiguration and self-repair, morphology and development. Progress in the theoretical underpinnings of embodied intelligence will have strong technological implications in areas including robotics, actuator technology, materials, self-assembling systems. Research in intelligent and cognitive systems is an interdisciplinary field requiring the cooperation of researchers from artificial intelligence, neuroscience (including cognitive and computational), psychology (cognitive and developmental), linguistics, developmental biology, robotics (and engineering in general), biomechanics, and dynamical systems. Software has become a central part of a rapidly growing range of applications, products and services from all sectors of economic activity. Systems in which software interacts with other software, systems, devices, sensors and with people are called software-intensive systems. Examples include large-scale heterogeneous systems, embedded systems for automotive and avionics applications, telecommunications, wireless ad hoc systems, business applications with an emphasis on web services. Our daily activities increasingly depend on complex software-intensive systems that are becoming ever more distributed, heterogeneous, decentralized and inter-dependent, and that are operating more and more in dynamic and often unpredictable environments.

There exist different kinds of complexity in the development of software. Software systems grew larger, the focus shifted from the complexity of developing algorithms to the complexity structuring large systems, and then to the additional complexities in building distributed, concurrent systems. In the next ten to fifteen years we will have to face another level of complexity arising from the fact that systems have to operate in large, open and non-deterministic environments: the complexity of knowledge, interaction and adaptation. Instead of developing computer-oriented systems where people have to adapt to the computer we have to develop human-oriented systems into which computers integrate seamlessly. Also, the requirements for software quality will dramatically increase. But our current methods are not sufficient to deal with adaptive software in a dynamic environment, especially not for large systems with complex interactions. We need to develop practically useful and theoretically well founded principles, methods and tools for engineering future software-intensive systems. All the complex systems depend on software that controls the behavior of individual components and the interaction between components, and on software which interacts with other software, systems, devices, sensors and with people. In other words: they depend on software-intensive systems.

Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit research and application papers following the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscripts style: two columns, single-spaced, including figures and references, using 10 fonts, and number each page. You can confirm the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Author Guidelines at the following web page:

The authors should submit a full paper (8 pages), representing original, previously unpublished work. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. Contact author must provide the following information at the CISIS web site: paper title, authors' names, affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail address of the author(s), about 200-250 word abstract, and about five keywords. Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the paper in the conference.

Accepted papers will be given guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) together with the notification of acceptance. Proceedings of the CISIS-2009 conference will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Based on quality and referee reviews, some of papers not suitable for acceptance as full paper will be accepted for presentation at CISIS-2009 workshops and will be also included in the IEEE Proceedings. The best papers selected by CISIS-2009 program committee out of papers accepted for presentation at CISIS-2009 will be further published in some International Journals.
