Large scale information systems in public utility services depend on computing infrastructure. These systems pose challenging requirements. The challenges of building consistent, available and scalable data management systems require multiple research efforts to address a large variety of problems.
These data management systems must be capable of handling petabytes of data. The systems must also be able to provide service to millions of users. Many research efforts are being made in related areas such as cloud computing, mobile computing, sensor networks, high-level user interfaces and information access by web users. In this context, the complexity associated with activities in the form of business logic has become immensely large. At the same time, information infrastructure requires innovations.
Suitable topics include but are not limited to:
- Networked information systems: infrastructure
- Cloud computing infrastructure
- Access to information resources
- Information and knowledge management systems
- Information extraction from data resources
- Geo-spatial decision making
