WETICE is an annual IEEE International conference on state-of-the-art research in enabling technologies for collaboration, consisting of a number of cognate conference tracks.

The Proceedings are published by the IEEE CS Press and distributed at the conference. ALL published papers are refereed by the Scientific Review of Committee of each conference track. This is the 20th WETICE conference.

What sets WETICE apart from larger conferences is that the conference tracks are kept small enough to promote fruitful discussions on the latest technology developments, directions, problems, and requirements. Each track includes paper presentations and group discussions while the keynote sessions and summary of discussions take place in joint sessions. WETICE welcomes papers on "work-in-progress" from the Ph.D. students.

Pr. Shapiro

Title: A principled approach to eventual consistency (Abstract)
Speaker: Pr. Marc Shapiro
Date: June 27, 2011
Slides

Short biography:
Marc Shapiro does his research on distributed computer systems, data replication and consistency algorithms, and distributed garbage collection. He invented the proxy concept, which is now universal on the Internet. He published at SOSP and OSDI , the two most prestigious venues of the area (one of the only two French papers at both venues). He was instrumental in the creation of EuroSys, the main European venue in the area. He authored 64 international publications, 17 recognised software systems, and four patents. Dr Shapiro's research started with a PhD from Université Paul Sabatier for research performed at LAAS in Toulouse, France (1980), followed by a post-doc at MIT, and a researcher position at CMIRH. He is a researcher at INRIA since 1984. He spent a one-year sabbatical at Cornell (1993--1994), and he led the Cambridge Distributed Systems group at Microsoft Research Cambridge (UK) from 1999 to 2005. He is currently a Senior Researcher for INRIA Paris-Rocquencourt, in the Regal group, located at LIP6.
Dr. Shapiro, a Senior Member of the ACM, is a member of the ACM Europe Council. He is the founder and past chair of the EuroSys, the European professional society in systems and European Chapter of SIGOPS. He was Vice-Chair of ACM SIGOPS, the Special Interest Group on Operating Systems, from 1995 to 1999. He founded its French chapter, ASF, which he chaired from 1996 to 2000.  He has been a member of several Program Commitees in operating systems, distributed systems, persistent systems, and garbage collection.

Title: Process Mining: What do organizations and people really do? ( Abstract)
Speaker: Pr. Wil van der Aalst
Date: June 28, 2011
Slides

Short biography:
Prof.dr.ir. Wil van der Aalst is a full professor of Information Systems at the Technische Universiteit Eindhoven (TU/e). Currently he is also an adjunct professor at Queensland University of Technology (QUT) working within the BPM group there. His research interests include workflow management, process mining, Petri nets, business process management, process modeling, and process analysis. Wil van der Aalst has published more than 130 journal papers, 16 books (as author or editor), 250 refereed conference/workshop publications, and 50 book chapters. Many of his papers are highly cited (he has an H-index of more than 75 according to Google Scholar, making him the Dutch computer scientist with the highest H-index) and his ideas have influenced researchers, software developers, and standardization committees working on process support. He has been a co-chair of many conferences including the Business Process Management conference, the International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems, the International conference on the Application and Theory of Petri Nets, and the IEEE International Conference on Services Computing. He is also editor/member of the editorial board of several journals, including the Distributed and Parallel Databases, the International Journal of Business Process Integration and Management, the International Journal on Enterprise Modelling and Information Systems Architectures, Computers in Industry, Business & Information Systems Engineering, IEEE Transactions on Services Computing, Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing, and Transactions on Petri Nets and Other Models of Concurrency. He is also a member of the Royal Holland Society of Sciences and Humanities (Koninklijke Hollandsche Maatschappij der Wetenschappen).

Title: Collaborative Modeling and Simulation: the Virtual Physiological Human vision (Abstract)
Speaker: Pr. Marco Viceconti
Date: June 28, 2011

Short biography:
Marco Viceconti (M’97) holds a Mechanical Engineering Degree from the University of Bologna and a PhD from the University of Firenze. After a period at the University of Wisconsin Madison, since 1990 he has been working at the Rizzoli Orthopaedic Institute, In Bologna, Italy, where he is Technical Director of the Medical Technology Lab, and Director of the Computational Bioengineering Lab, part of the recently established Bologna Technopole. He is also contract professor of computational biomechanics at the University of Bologna, and Scientific advisor of the BioComputing Competence Centre, also located in Bologna. His main research interests are related to the development and validation of medical technology, especially that involving simulation. In his career he published over 200 papers, 160 of which are indexed in Medline, and serves are reviewer for many international funding agencies and peer-reviewed journals. Dr. Viceconti is internationally recognised as one of the key figures in the emerging Virtual Physiological Human (VPH) community. Co-author of the first white paper on VPH, coordinator of the STEP action that compiled the seminal VPH research roadmap, animator of the World Integrative Research Initiative (WIRI), “VPH Ambassador” for the VPH Network of Excellence, coordinator of one the three VPH integrated projects (VPHOP), he is currently chairing the Board of Directors of the forming European VPH institute.

Title: The Complex Semantic Space Model (Abstract)
Speaker: Pr. Hai Zhuge
Date: June 29, 2011
Slides

Short biography:
Hai Zhuge is a professor and the chief scientist of the Key Lab of Intelligent Information Processing at Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Computing Technology. He was the chief scientist of the Semantic Knowledge Grid Project of the National Basic Research Program of China. He is the pioneer of the cyber-physical-socio Knowledge Grid research. His research concerns the classification-based Resource Space Model (RSM), the self-organized Semantic Link Network model (SLN), the Knowledge Flow, the scalable knowledge grid platform, and the Cyber-Physical Society. Based on RSM and SLN, he established a complex semantic space model as the unified model for managing resources in different spaces and support cyber-physical-socio intelligence. He presented over ten keynotes at international conferences on his innovations. He initiates the International Conference on Semantics, Knowledge and Grids (SKG, www.knowledgegrid.net). He is an associate editor of the Knowledge and Information Systems and the IEEE Intelligent Systems. He serves as the reviewer of several national foundations such as NSF of Austria, NSF of China, SFI of Ireland, and NSF of USA. He is the author of two monographs The Knowledge Grid and The Web Resource Space Model. He was the top scholar in relevant area according to a Journal of Systems and Software assessment report. His publications appeared in AIJ, ACM TOIT, CACM, Computer, IEEE TKDE, IEEE TPDS, IEEE TSC, and JASIST. His work was cited by journals and conferences such as ACM TOSEM, ACM TAAS, IEEE TKDE, IEEE TSE, JPDC, WWW, ICSE, CIKM and ISWC. He received 2007's Wang Xuan Award of China Computer Federation for his fundamental theory of the Knowledge Grid. He is a Distinguished Scientist of the ACM. Webpage: www.knowledgegrid.net/~h.zhuge.
