The SITIS conference is dedicated to research on the technologies used to represent, share and process information in various forms, ranging multimedia data to traditional structured data and semi-structured data found in the web. SITIS spans two inter-related research domains that increasingly play a key role in connecting systems across network centric environments to allow distributed computing and information sharing.

SITIS 2011 aims to provide a forum for high quality presentations on research activities centered on the following tracks:

* The focus of the track "Internet-Based Computing and Systems" (IBCS) focuses on emerging and novel concepts, architectures and methodologies for information management. The Internet and the related technologies have created an interconnected world in which information can be exchanged easily, tasks can be processed collaboratively, communities of users with similarly interests can be formed to achieve efficiency and improve performance. The main topics include (but not limited to) data semantics and ontologies, semi-structure data management, spatial information systems, multimedia databases, multimedia networking and QoS, information retrieval and search engine, information security, schema mapping and evolution, data warehousing, social network, interoperability, agent-based systems, distributed and parallel information management, grid, P2P, web-centric systems, web security and integrity issues.

* The second track titled "Signal & Image Technologies" (SIT) focuses on recent developments in digital signal processing and pays particular attention to evolutions in audiovisual signal processing, analysis, coding and authentication, and retrieval techniques. The main topics of interest include (but not limited to) image processing and analysis, segmentation, shape matching, signal processing, radar sonar, mobile signal processing, nonlinear and multidimensional signal processing, Image/Video coding and authentication, coding standards, image and video over networks, error resilience, motion detection and estimation, object tracking, multimedia processing, video streaming, watermark embedding and detection, and applications


In addition to the above tracks, SITIS 2011 includes workshops. The final list of workshop will be provided later.

Submission and publication
--------------------------
The conference will include keynote addresses, tutorials, and regular and workshop sessions.
SITIS 2011 invites submission of high quality and original papers on the topics of the major tracks described below.
All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers for technical merit, originality, significance and relevance to track topics.

Papers must be up to 8 pages and follow IEEE double columns publication format.
Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and published by IEEE Computer Society and referenced in IEEE explore and major indexes.
