IEEE Digital Ecosystem Science and Technology (DEST) Conference Series
|IEEE Digital Ecosystem Science and Technology (DEST) Conference Series|
|Field of Focus:|
Partnership:iFOSSF is the co-chair of the IEEE DEST workshop with a focus on continuous research and outreaching of the SEED Framework
Based on IEEE DEST, the digital ecosystem is defined as an open, loosely coupled, demand-driven, domain clustered, agent-based self-organized collaborative environment where species/ agents form a temporary coalition (or longer term) for a specific purpose or goals, and everyone is proactive and responsive for its own benefit or profit. The essence of digital ecosystems is creating value by making connections through collective intelligence. Digital Ecosystems promote collaboration instead of unbridled competition and ICT based catalyst effect in a number of domains to produce networked enriched communities.
The main conference theme for the DEST series are to strengthen ICT to support different digital ecosystems, especially the study of triangle relationship between industries, human endeavours and advanced ICT and is empowered by inter-discipline, multi-discipline and trans-discipline research. Digital Ecosystems are essentially about creating value by making connections in different domains through adoption of the modern networked society and economy supported by different forms of digital infrastructure, services and collaborative technology frameworks, instead of unbridled competition and ICT based catalyst effect to produce human empowered communities.
The objectives of the conference is extremely complementary to the SEED Framework recently developed by iFOSSF independently. We are honored to be invited to launch the first SEED Framework workshop at the DEST 2013 conference in July, 2013.
