Third International Symposium on Innovation and Information and Communication Technology (ISIICT 2009) (ISIICT)
Innovation and Information and Communication Technology
15 - 17 December 2009
The scope of the third International Symposium on Innovation in Information and Communication Technology is fairly wide, since it is intended to serve as a forum for discussing the wide range of issues that are raised by today’s information and communication technology, as well as their evolution and their paradigm shifts.
The programme for this symposium is divided into seven areas of interest: data mining and web information retrieval, software engineering, performance evaluation, computer security, information systems and ERP, e-applications, and diagnosis and image processing applications.
This conference is sponsored by:
The track of data mining and web information retrieval includes three papers that are divided in the following topics of interest: learning from web, textual data, and web usage mining.
The track of software engineering includes four papers that are divided in the following topics of interest: dynamic and structural pattern, software evolution, real-time embedded systems, and web service applications . The track of performance evaluation includes two papers that are divided in the following topics of interest: performance of routers and performance of generic deployment platform.
The track of computer security includes two papers that are divided in the following topics of interest: cryptographic protocols and wired and wireless networks. The track of information systems and ERP includes two papers that are divided in the following topics of interest: validation of the IS-impact model and critical success factors of ERP.
The track of e-applications includes three papers that are divided in the following topics of interest: e-business value, G2C acceptance, and wireless networks. The track of diagnosis and image processing applications includes three papers that are divided in the following topics of interest: distributed systems diagnosis, turbine aided diagnostic, and image segmentation.
In addition to these peer-reviewed papers two invited keynote speakers were presented at this symposium: Professor Fairouz Kamareddine spoke about ‘The Computerisation of Information: The Challenges and the Pitfalls’, and Professor Odej Kao spoke about ‘Resource Management and Trust in On-Demand Computing’.
We are pleased by the international diversity of the symposium; authors hail from no less than seven countries, including Algeria, Australia, France, Jordan, Malaysia, Tunisia and The United Kingdom.
We are very grateful to the programme committee members and reviewers for their help in assessing and selecting papers among those that are submitted. Also we gratefully acknowledge the support of the organising committee who, in addition to their organising responsibilities, has offered us a great deal of technical support to manage the flow of papers and reviews. The technical support of IEEE, the technical and financial support of BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, and the financial support of The Higher Council for Science and Technology were very appreciated and helped the success of this symposium.
