* Systems and alarm diffusion: confidentiality vs. monitoring,
(mis-)information vs. rumour, state of the affairs? *


WORKSHOP OVERVIEW
The aim of this workshop is to gather researchers and practitioners
working in the area of Information Systems, DataBase, Document
management, metadata, workflow management,
conceptual modeling, design, software, etc., to exchange and to share
information, to network, to give points of view and to collaborate in
project proposals.

This workshop will discuss questions about liveness, dynamicity,
reactivity of alarm systems: how to ensure the warning information reach
the right destination at the right moment
and in the right location, still being relevant for the recipient, in
spite of the various and successive filters of confidentiality, privacy,
firewall policies, etc. ?
Also relevant in this context are to technical contingency issues:
material failure, defect of connection, break of channels, independence
of information routes and sources?
Alarms with crowd media, (mis-)information vs. rumours: how to make the
distinction?

Today, in a more global world, companies, organizations and national
agencies are involved in observation systems designed to generate
alarms. Considering for instance natural disaster prevention systems, we
have a collection of agents, each capable of observing various events
and acquiring information which must be aggregated and processed in
order to generate alerts. Space Situation Awareness systems, designed to
generate warnings to prevent collisions between orbiting objects, or
Disease Surveillance systems, which monitor the spreading of diseases at
a global scale, are built on similar principles.

Besides these national or international systems, social networks play a
role in alerts diffusion. Recently, the micro-blogging platform Twitter
announced a new alert diffusion service, purposely designed to help
government organisation and non-profit organisations to diffuse alerts
to the population. The question of how to specify/manage such
mass-reaching system and protect them against misuse deserves some
attention from the IS community.

So, one can say that such systems must trigger events as well as be
triggered by external events, and must be robust w.r.t. technical
contingency:
material failure, defect of connection, break of channels,... or any
unforeseen circumstances that they have to cope with, in a dynamic way
and in an unknown context.
Fundamental properties of alarm systems are linked to liveness,
dynamicity, reactivity, etc.: They must ensure that warning information
eventually reaches the right destination at the right moment and in the
right location, while being still understandable and relevant for the
recipient, in spite of the various confidentiality, anonymisation,
firewall, privacy, etc. filtering operations information undergoes. In
addition, questions surround the use of personal data in alarm systems:
Should alarm systems be allowed access/collect personal user data (with
or without the user's consent)? Must the personal data stores be fully
controlled by the user?



IMPORTANT DATES
Submission Deadline: April 17th 2015
Acceptance Notification: May 22th 2015
Camera-Ready Submission: June 15th 2015


SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
Submissions should present original results and substantial new work not
currently under review or published elsewhere. This workshop accepts:
- Research papers (up to 14 pages) including novel approaches to deal
with these issues.
- Application papers (up to 10 pages) describing applications.
- Industrial papers (up to 4 pages) describing experiences in the
industry sectors.
- Demo proposals (up to 2 pages) describing the demo flow.

The workshop proceedings will be published by Springer in the Advances
in Intelligent Systems and Computing series.
Papers should be submitted in PDF format.
Submissions must conform to Springer's format and should not exceed 14
pages, including all text, figures, references and appendices. The
program committee may decide to accept a submission as a short paper if
it reports interesting results but does not justify publication of a
full paper.
Information about the Springer LNCS format can be found at
http://www.springer.com/series/11156.

Submission is done through CyberChair at the following page:
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wisard15



PUBLICATION
Workshop papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in the AISC series
(Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing).
The authors of the best workshop papers will be invited to prepare
extended versions of their papers after the workshop. Following an
additional round of reviews, the extended papers will appear in a
special issue of Information System Frontiers, Springer (Impact Factor =
0.761).
