Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on CD-ROM support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

Scope

The Special Session on Digitization Technology and Management brings together academics, researchers, and practitioners to address fundamental and practical aspects of digitization technologies, development and operation - in a close relationship to novel approaches for software engineering, software architecture and related management for service computing and the evolution of IT. The focused digital transformation of services with associated digital products and processes is strong correlated with current advances and the evolution of IT. Service computing unifies current aspects of cloud computing, mobile computing, big data, and social computing by using a digital architectural approach, which has its roots in adaptive software architecture and enterprise architecture. Service computing is a key paradigm to support the digital transformation by current and next challenging research on service design, service composition, Internet of Things, and crowd-based reputation and collaboration processes.

Scope

While software development has traditionally been more of an empirical art than an engineering discipline, this is slowly changing as software users demand from software engineers the same levels of system reliability and predictability that are achieved by engineers in other disciplines. The workshop focuses on theoretical and practical aspects of Object Management Group’s Model-Driven Architecture, Model-Driven Software Development, Domain-Specific Languages based on models, Model-Driven Engineering, Model transformation and code generation, models for real-time and embedded systems, Models for SOA and web service design, Models for software product lines, and other Model-Driven Innovations for Software Engineering. All these closely-linked fields including Model-Driven Domain Analysis and Model-Driven Software Development are advancing rapidly as practitioners and theoreticians work together to create new techniques and extend understanding of how and why existing methods work (and also why they sometimes fail).The present fourth edition of the Special session on Model Driven Innovations for Software Engineering (MDI4SE 2018) follows the traditions of previous events (Barcelona, Spain 2015, Rome, Italy 2016, and Porto, Portugal 2017). It aims to bring together academics, researchers and industrial partners to share innovative achievements and discuss on how to improve quality, reliability and effectiveness of IT products and services.

Scope

The IEEE IoT Community defines the IoT as: “… a self-configuring and adaptive system consisting of networks of sensors and smart objects whose purpose is to interconnect “all” things, including every day and industrial objects, in such a way as to make them intelligent, programmable and more capable of interacting with humans’’. According to information technology researcher Gartner, there are more than 6.4 billion devices connected to the Internet excluding tablets, cellphones and computers. That number is projected to hit 20.8 billion devices by 2020, as everything from a coffee maker to a kid toy is hooked up. The goal of this special session is to explore how IoTs can be applied in the field of education.
