InfQ 2017 - New Frontiers in Quantitative Methods in Informatics


December, 4 Venice - Italy
In conjunction with Valuetools 2017

The seventh Workshop of the Italian group on Quantitative Methods in
Informatics (InfQ 2017) will be held in Venice, co-located with
Valuetools 2017, after the past successful editions in Pisa (2010),
Lipari (2011), Lucca (2012), Sorrento (2013), Torino (2014) and Taormina
InfQ is the leading Italian forum on quantitative modeling, evaluation,
and verification, of computer, networks, telecommunication systems, and
more general classes of man-made, social, or natural systems.
InfQ welcomes both contributions on methodology and application, and
gives value to both the theoretical and practical perspectives.
Conference topics include, but are not limited to:
- quantitative modeling formalisms, solution techniques, and tools for
probabilistic or stochastic systems possibly combining non-determinism,
queuing networks, analytical numerical or statistical solution, fluid
and hybrid behavior, emergent behavior and collective systems, game
theory, hierarchical or multi-formalism composition and model driven
engineering, soft computing;
- applications of quantitative methods in a variety of contexts, notably
including Industry 4.0, Internet of Things, Cyber-Physical Systems,
smart cities, smart energy, e-healthcare and Ambient Assisted Living,
social and urban computing, Bioinformatics, Software Defined Networks,
quantum computing, cloud/edge/fog computing, capacity planning, load
characterization, self adaptive systems.

Continuing its tradition, the InfQ Workshop welcomes not only mature
results but also contributions reporting work in progress and research
developed by PhD students, with the aim of making them available to a
broad audience and promote the exchange and collaboration among
experienced and young researchers from the different Italian
Universities and Research Organizations.

*Submission process and types of contributions*
Contributions must be submitted in electronic format (PDF) through
Easychair. Submitted papers must be unpublished and not submitted
elsewhere, written in English, and formatted according to the Springer
LaTex style.

Two different types of contributions are welcome:
- full conference papers, not exceeding 14 pages, reporting mature
results of scientific or industrial research;
- short papers, not exceeding 6 pages, reporting experience or
preliminary results from ongoing research or projects.

Each submitted paper will be reviewed by at least three referees, from a
Program Committee combining together leading Italian and International
scholars, on the basis of originality, scientific and practical
contribution to the state-of-the-art, technical soundness, and quality
of presentation.

All accepted papers will be presented at the workshop and published by
Springer Verlag in conference proceedings in the CCIS (Communications in
Computer and Information Science) series, included in Springer e-book
packages and covered by all major indexing services, including Scopus.

Proceedings will be published after the Workshop, and electronic
versions of accepted papers will be distributed
together with Valuetools 2017 proceedings.

The workshop program will also include a PhD Defense Corner were
doctoral students who have already achieved a good level of maturity in
their research program can present and discuss an early version of their
dissertation. Proposals of presentation, not exceeding 4 pages and
including  title, abstract, contact information, and affiliation, must
be submitted directly to the PC Chairs.
