The Third International ICST Conference on Scalable Information Systems
June 4-6, 2008 - Vico Equense, Italy

General Chairs:
Ronny Lempel - Yahoo! Research Haifa, Israel
Raffaele Perego - ISTI CNR, Italy
Fabrizio Silvestri - ISTI CNR, Italy

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
