IEEE Digital Ecosystems and Technology Conference, May 2011
The digital ecosystem is defined as an open, loosely coupled, demand-driven, domain clustered, agent-based self organized collaborative environment where species/agents form a temporary coalition (or longer term) for a specific purpose or goals, and everyone is proactive and responsive for its own benefit or profit. The essence of digital ecosystems is creating value by making connections through collective intelligence. Digital Ecosystems promote collaboration instead of unbridled competition and ICT based catalyst effect in a number of domains to produce networked enriched communities.
Digital Ecosystems is empowered by the cyber engineering and human space computing. Cyber engineering addresses digital horizon in our ecosystems, social technical computing and cyber security, privacy, trust, risk and accountability, social networks, web 2.0, 3.0, Convergence technologies, web services and grid technologies. Human space computing is about the study of the technology (Bluetooth, WiFi, IRDA, RFID, GSM, GPRS, 3G Digital Pens, PPAs, Mobile Phones , VoIP, Video, Voice, Data, other devices) for improvement of our human lives, not just organizations, business and government. It studies the world we live in, and personal space computing, our space, between the digital skyline and our ecosystems
The main conference theme is to strengthen ICT to support different digital ecosystems, especially the study of triangle relationship between industries, human endeavours and advanced ICT and is empowered by inter-discipline, multi-discipline and trans-discipline research. Digital Ecosystems are essentially about creating value by making connections in different domains through adoption of the modern networked society and economy supported by different forms of digital infrastructure, services and collaborative technology frameworks, instead of unbridled competition and ICT based catalyst effect to produce human empowered communities.
The new initiative on Innovation Adoption for the IEEE DEST Conference Series aims to bring together stakeholders from all areas of the collaborative ecosystem: industry, political leaders and the public, to debate the role of ICT as a key enabler for economic growth, social development and individual well-being. Our Keynotes, Panels and Sessions will tackle the multifaceted challenges from the various stakeholder’s perspectives.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Theoretical Foundations of Digital Ecosystems
- Digital Ecosystems Infrastructures
- Digital Ecosystems Architectures and Semantics
- DomainSpecific Digital Ecosystems
