THE INTERNATIONAL ACM CONFERENCE ON MANAGEMENT OF EMERGENT DIGITAL ECOSYSTEMS
October 28, 2012
Oct 28-31, 2012 Addis Ababa University, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia

Description and Objectives

In the world of the Internet, the rapid growth and exponential use of digital medias leads to the emergence of virtual environments namely digital ecosystems composed of multiple and independent entities such as individuals, organizations, services, software and applications sharing one or several missions and focusing on the interactions and inter-relationships among them. The digital ecosystem exhibits self-organizing environments, thanks to the re-combination and evolution of its "digital components", in which resources provided by each entity are properly conserved, managed and used. The underlying resources mainly comprehend data management, innovative services, computational intelligence and self-organizing platforms.
