IEEE/IPSJ International Symposium on Applications and the Internet
IEEE International Computer SoftwareTechnically sponsored by IEEE-CS IT Professional
and Applications Conference
SAINT, started at 2001, is sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and the Information Processing Society of Japan (IPSJ) to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners from the academic, industrial, public, and government sectors to share their latest innovations on Internet technologies and applications. SAINT has been held in conjunction with IEEE COMPSAC (the IEEE Signature Conference on Computer Software and Applications) since 2008. By virtue of co-location with COMPSAC, SAINT became also a signature conference of IPSJ on Internet and Applications since 2008.
SAINT and COMPSAC are complement to each other. SAINT features Internet technologies and related applications. COMPSAC features software-oriented, diverse-range of technologies. The co-location of COMPSAC and SAINT since 2008 has provided a good opportunity for attendees of the two conferences to share their ideas and latest innovations. Two conferences have adopted the same fee structure, and registrants, paying only one fee, are allowed to attend any sessions of either conference.
Considering these situations, it has been decided to terminate SAINT and to start the new version of COMPSAC from 2013 in Kyoto. The following is a provisional plan for the new version of COMPSAC incorporating topics and activities of SAINT: 1) Creating 5-6 tracks whose topics will focus on Internet and its applications, 2) Continuing the SAINT workshops under the auspices of COMPSAC, i.e., COMPSAC will see new workshops added in several areas of Internet and applications, 3) Expanding the Doctoral Symposium program (that was started in 2011) in size and scope.
It has also been approved by both IEEE CS and IPSJ that the new COMPSAC will be technically sponsored by IPSJ (the first technical sponsor to COMPSAC), where IPSJ members can participate in COMPSAC with member rates.
The Internet has revolutionized and changed the way we communicate, socialize, entertain, access information and conduct business. It has evolved into a pervasive ecosystem of connected computers, mobile devices, sensors, home appliances, and a variety of other gadgets. This evolution has led to a deep intertwining of the physical, social and digital worlds, raising new research agendas and challenging our understanding of the requirements for a vastly interconnected world. The advent of Web 2.0, social networks, open API's, mash-ups and cloud computing are empowering Internet users into becoming Internet "makers." Anyone and everyone is included, free to contribute content and even services. The frontier of the Internet no longer stops at the shores of large corporations, small businesses, and online stores. It has expanded to include the presence and contributions of virtually all mankind. The symposium provides a forum for researchers and practitioners from the academic, industrial, public and governmental sectors to share their latest innovations on Internet technologies and applications.
