Subscribers to the Humanist may be interested in this conference,
specifically in the workshop and track indicated below.


Call for papers – IEEE DEST: Conference on Digital Ecosystems and
Technologies, 31st May – 3rd June 2011, Daejeon, Korea.


Digital ecosystems may be defined as open, loosely coupled, demand-driven,
self-organising collaborative environments where diverse agents (both human
and computer-based) form temporary (or longer term) coalitions for specific
purposes or goals. The essence of digital ecosystems is the creation of
value by making connections through collective intelligence, promoting
collaboration instead of unbridled competition and using ICT as a catalyst
for producing networked-enriched communities.

We encourage papers from the digital humanities community in particular for
the following parts of the conference:

- Workshop on e-Research- Track on Domain-Specific Digital Ecosystems (including humanities)

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Virtual research environments
- Architectures and infrastructures for e-research ecosystems
- Human interaction with complex environments: perceptions, expectations and engagement
- Interaction between human researchers, computer agents and digital
- Cultural and political issues around the adoption of, and adaptation
to, computer-mediated communication and information sharing
- Collective intelligence
- Autonomous agents and multi-agent systems
- Distributed models for digital repositories and data management
- Reliability and SLAs in distributed environments
- Online collaboration: technological and human issues
