The SITIS conference is dedicated to research on the technologies used to represent, share and process information in various forms, ranging from signal, image, and multimedia data to traditional structured data and semi-structured data found in the web.

SITIS spans two inter-related research domains that increasingly play a key role in connecting systems across network centric environments to allow distributed computing and information sharing. SITIS 2016 aims to provide a forum for high quality presentations on research activities centered on the following main tracks.

The track titled “Signal Image & Vision Technologies(SIVT)focuses on recent developments in digital signal processing and pays particular attention to evolutions in audiovisual signal processing, analysis, coding and authentication, and retrieval techniques.
The focus of the “Multimedia Information Retrieval and Application” (MIRA) track is on emerging modeling, representation and retrieval techniques that take into account the amount, type and diversity of multimedia information accessible in distributed computing environment. The track titled “Intelligent Web Computing and Applications” (I-WeCA) is on emerging and novel concepts, architectures and methodologies for information management, including the semantic web, big data, and cloud computing. Finally, social networks have grown rapidly in size and have witnessed a popular expansion to reach billions of users, providing a suitable space for sharing data, interacting with other users and forming communities with common interests. The focus of the “Social Networks, Large Networks and their Applications” (SLNA) track is on emerging and novel concepts, architectures and methodologies for social networks analysis, tools and applications, including issues related to complex graphs, semantics, big data, and security.

SITIS is also dedicated to bring together scientists from the world over, particularly from developing countries, to share and exchange knowledge, experience and research results. When the conference is hosted by research institutions in developing countries, a particular emphasis will be placed on the presentation of applied research, the organization of practical tutorials and workshops that may help address the information processing needs of these countries, and book give away sessions to allow conference attendees to donate books to the local institutions.
