IEEE DEST 2009
Proudly Co-Organized and Co-Chaired by DEBII, Curtin University
3rd IEEE International Conference on Digital Ecosystems and Technologies
Special theme: Cyber Engineering and Human Space Computing
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 studies the digital horizon in our ecosystems, also known as Cloud computing. It encompass the semantic web, Ontologies, cyber security, privacy, trust and risk management, 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, PDAs, 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 (The 3rd IEEE DEST 2009) is to strengthen ICT to support different digital ecosystems, especially focusing on cyber engineering and human space computing. It is the study of triangle relationship between industries, human endeavours and advanced ICT.
