Aim and Scope

The International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems is an established international event for presenting and discussing scientific contributions to technical, economical, and societal aspects of distributed information systems at scale.

The guiding theme of this 28th conference is "Information Systems in a Data Society", with a particular focus on the following areas:

    Topic 1: Data, Information, and Knowledge Engineering
    Topic 2: Machine-Learning and Knowledge Reconstruction and Discovery
    Topic 3: Semantic Web and Linked Open Data
    Topic 4: Security and Privacy
    Topic 5: Internet of Things
    Topic 6: Architecture and Management of Information Systems
    Topic 7: Human Aspects and Social Interaction
    Topic 8: Services in Information Systems

For a detailed description of topics, please see below.

As in previous years, CoopIS 2020 will be part of a joint event with other conferences in the context of the OTM Federated Conferences ("OnTheMove"), covering different aspects of distributed information systems.

Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not under review for another conference, workshop, or journal. The contributions should address research questions from one or more of the areas listed above.

We are particularly encouraging:
1. Contributions that describe and evaluate technological innovations (e.g. new methods and approaches).
2. Empirical studies (e.g. quantitative data on the effects of novel approaches in technical, social, or economic terms).
3. Systematic surveys of competing techniques and paradigms.

The questions addressed should be practically relevant and of generic interest. Full-papers should include a systematic evaluation of the contribution and relate it to the established state of the art and alternative recent contributions. Short papers may present work with preliminary evidence.

Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Papers will be evaluated according to originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity. At least one author is required to register for the conference and to present the paper.

Submissions for full papers must not exceed 18 pages in the final camera-ready style. Short papers should be up to 8 pages. Submissions must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS instructions at and must be uploaded in PDF format.

The final proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science).

Electronic submission of all manuscripts via the following EasyChair link is required:

Important: The three conferences of the event are managed by a single EasyChair installation; it is thus extremely important that you submit your paper to the track "28th International Conference on Cooperative Information Systems".
