The main theme of PRO-VE’12 focuses thus on crucial aspects to empower Collaborative Networks as a main actor of change in society.

The scope of this year is: Collaborative Networks in the Internet of Services

“Recent developments under the umbrella of Future Internet offer new concepts and mechanisms to support a new generation of advanced collaborative networks. Particularly relevant is the consolidation of the Internet of Services and its associated infrastructures and related concepts such as service ecologies and service parks. Complementarily, recent progress on Cyber Physical Systems induce new virtualization possibilities for resources and capabilities, leading to notions of Industrial Internet, Sensing Enterprise, Internet of Events, etc.” 

Moving from services provided by a single entity to more complex or integrated multi-stakeholder services requires new approaches in dynamic service composition and thus the effective consideration of the “collaboration” perspective. This is a fundamental step in reducing the gap between the notions of software service and business service.

The conference will take place in Bournemouth, UK, the 1-3 October 2012.


 Applied Developments and Industry-based extended abstracts are welcome for possible presentation at PRO-VE’12 conference. Accepted submissions will provide distinguished showcases of current and emerging Collaborative Networks forms in different industrial domains and application environments.

The Applied Developments and Industry call for extended abstracts aims to attract contributions from industry related to practical developments on Collaborative Networks and/or related supporting technologies in the industrial landscape.

Furthermore, the track intends to provide practitioners (e.g. network managers) with the opportunity to introduce, discuss, and exchange positions on different Collaborative Networks creation and management strategies with researchers on the Collaborative Networks scientific discipline towards the identification of best practices combining academic research work and industry experience.

Extended abstracts should be no more than 2 pages in length and will be included in the PRO-VE electronic proceedings; submissions shall use the Easychair system (the same link as PRO-VE’12 Main Conference, selecting “Applied Track” option).

Important Dates:

  • Extended Abstracts Due: 31 July 2012
  • Notification of Acceptance: 03 August 2012
  • Extended Abstracts Camera-ready Due: 10 August 2012
