                    Tenth International Conference on
              COOPERATIVE INFORMATION SYSTEMS (CoopIS 2003)

                       November 3-7, 2003, Catania, Sicily, Italy
                http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf/coopis/2003

                    ** 2002 acceptance rate is 1/4 **


The Cooperative Information System (CIS) paradigm has been growing and gaining substantial importance in technological infrastructure (e.g., middleware and Web technologies) and application areas (e.g., e-Commerce,
e-Government, virtual enterprises). CoopIS is the leading conference for
researchers and practitioners in CIS. CoopIS brings together researchers
from a variety of disciplines such as collaborative work, Internet data management, electronic commerce, human-computer interaction, agent technologies, and software architectures. We encourage papers that emphasise cooperation across multiple areas.

CoopIS 2003 is a joint event with two other conferences organised within

the global theme "On the Move to meaningful Internet Systems 2003: Distributed Object and Applications (DOA) and Ontologies, Databases and Applications of Semantics (ODBASE)." All three events will be hosted in Sicily during the week November 3-7, 2003. More details about the federated event can be found at http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf.

The CoopIS 2003 has the theme Cooperation in Ubiquitous Computing. We see
an increasing number of computing systems and devices connected everywhere.
The central issue in this vision is the need for these computing systems

and devices to cooperate. We are particularly interested in contributions
that relate to the issue of cooperation everywhere. Of course, submissions
on all topics related to cooperative information systems are encouraged,

including (but not limited to) the following:
