IIM Workshop Day - Call For Papers

The Institute for Information Management welcomes submissions for the IIM Workshop Day 2017 with the overall theme “Managing Information in the Cloud".

Call For Papers Submission Form

Cloud computing is commonly used paradigm for the large-scale data storage and processing capability provided as a service, utilising a convenient and efficient access to configurable and flexible resources.  The benefits of having your information systems in the cloud computing are remarkable, however governance, security and privacy concerns still have a noticeable impact on the adoption of cloud services in Australia.

Organisations that utilise cloud-based services lose the direct control over the systems managing their information and business applications, thus introducing additional risks related to the confidentiality, integrity and availability of their key asset - information.

The objective of this workshop is to bring together users, researchers, practitioners and cloud service providers together to discuss a range of topics closely related to the management of information in the cloud.

The Institute for Information Management seeks submissions from industry, academia and public sector, presenting case studies, practical experiences, new approaches, novel research, as well as experimental studies, outlining practical aspects of information governance in the cloud environment.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Information management in the cloud scenarios

  • Cloud-based enterprise resource planning systems

  • Data and business system security

  • Data and business system security

  • Integrity of Information in the cloud

  • Data availability in Data-as-a-service scenarios
