OTM 2018

Welcome to the website of OnTheMove Federated Conferences & Workshops. This year's event will be held from October 22 to 26 in Valletta (Malta), European Capital of Culture 2018!

This 17th edition of OnTheMove (OTM 2018) as before is a uniquely federated event composed of three interrelated yet complementary scientific conferences that together attempt to span a relevant range of the advanced research on, and cutting-edge development and application of, information handling and systems in the wider current context of ubiquitous distributed computing.

For 2018 we identified a number of broad themes: submissions on these themes are encouraged within the scope of each of the main conferences. The themes naturally overlap and interact, and so emphasis and view may be different within the individual scopes of CoopIS’18, ODBASE’18, and C&TC’18.

  • Aspects of data governance, compliance and privacy in ecosystems of organizations and enterprises
  • Infrastructure for, and semantic use of, big data and open data on the internet in general
  • Mobile issues as well as general technical aspects of secure computing as a basis for trusted use of Cloud-based IS (e.g. blockchain technology)
  • Technical and scientific aspects of information systems interacting with society at large: regulation, privacy, trust, …
  • Implementation and application of open innovation in ecosystems of organizations and enterprises
  • Role of community-driven, semantics-based intelligence in cooperative IS
