Scope and Overview:

Global Information Infrastructure Symposium (GIIS 2012) follows the
success of GIIS 2007 (, GIIS 2009
( and GIIS 2011 (

The scope of GIIS consists of interrelated set of technical, policy, and
social issues implicit in the development of national and international
(global) information infrastructures. GIIS aims at identifying and
promoting the exchange of knowledge on these interrelated issues and
provides liaison to bodies in the global society, technical fora and
international standards.

GIIS 2012 will stimulate interdisciplinary conference sessions to
discuss, built and further the use of national and international
information infrastructures. The conference also aims at providing a
forum for the participants to broaden professional contacts and for
technical discussions and interactions on specific information
infrastructure topics. Information infrastructure brings together
information processing applications, communications networks and
services, physical and software elements in networks, and end systems.

The program of GIIS 2012 will include invited talks, paper
presentations, tutorials, panel, and discussion sessions. The technical
issues addressed by the conference include Interoperability at various
levels, standard services and user interfaces, world wide naming and
addressing, and the international mobility of persons and services. The
humaniarian and policy issues addressed by the conference are those with
a large technical element, including protection of intellectual
property, privacy and security, international use of encryption
technology, commercial protocols, and standards vs. proprietary
technologies. The conference is specifically interested in ubiquity,
open source/equal access, ease of use, cost effectiveness, standards,
and architectural openness.

The program of GIIS 2012 will include a Technology Track, and a
Humanitarian and Policy Track. Topics of interest include but are not
restricted to the following aspects:
