  • Discussion on the keynote speech delivered in the opening session by Dr. Gentzsch, focusing especially on data centers, virtualization, nano-data centers, and could computing
  • Discussion turned around privacy and trust on cloud computing


  • There were discussions on updating the topics of ICCGI and augmenting the dissemination of ICCGI to cover new dimensions on virtualization and cloud computing, etc.
  • Help is expected from all the committee members for a careful dissemination of the Call for Papers, avoiding spamming
  • The promotion of young researchers was appreciated
  • More work for preparing ICCGI 2010 will be done offline, with many volunteers
  • There is an open call to suggest regular refresh to the topics of ICCGI events
  • Please have a look at: ICCGI 2010
    Suggestions are welcome at
  • The procedure of invitation-only for extended versions of selected papers among those presented for on-line IARIA journals, with no additional fees, was appreciated

Some of the following items were also discussed either individually, or off-line, in small groups.


  • Continue with ‘Poster’ and ‘Work in Progress’ tracks
  • Definitively, the technical program committee must be tuned to reflect new topics and assure a fair peer-to-peer review process


  • The option to publish in an open digital library was discussed; this will allow having all the proceedings of the co-located events on the same CD Proceedings, and full free access to any publication
  • This issue will be carried further on to the IARIA Board to careful attention
  • It was suggested that some national research Centers encourage scientist to rather publish in openly searchable digital libraries
  • For the first time the issue of having a credible archiving corporation was brought up by Shawn McKee. It was discussion that safely archiving and having good indexing are more relevant than the Publisher, per se
  • Conclusion was that, while a parallel back-up solution for both publishing and archiving is recommended, more work must be done for enlarging the indexing

Next steps:

  • Develop the new topics via off-line exchanges
  • Extend invitations for ICCGI 2010 committee membership

ICCGI 2010

  • Announce the new topics with the CfP for ICCGI 2010
  • Location: yet to be defined, most probably in Valencia (Spain)
  • ICCGI 2010 will be organized under InfoWare 2010, most probably in September 2010
