The workshops will be held on the last day i.e. 22 Feb,2008. The workshops in ISEC2008 are planned as group discussion and brainstorming activity, leading to defining of research agenda and problems.
To facilitate this discussion, some talks have been organized. Others from attendees can also make presentations, if the organizers agree.
Software development is a knowledge intensive activity. From simple programming, to design, testing, to project
management – all stages benefit by 'previous experience' in that activity and domain. The
advent of the semantic web has brought the focus back on this question - how can we capture, model and use knowledge. Ontologies to capture domain
knowledge is one such example.
This workshop will explore these questions
and look at example of how knowledge based models and technologies are
helping large scale software development.

Cloud computing has captured the popular imagination with potentially significant ramifications
on how IT services are done. This workshop will explore what cloud computing is and emerging
directions and explore the relationships among cloud, utility, SaaS and desktop clouds among
others. The workshop will explore the maturity of the field, problems that are yet to be solved,
new problems (such as data privacy) that the cloud paradigm raises, and identify where cloud
computing is likely to make its biggest technical and business impact.
The workshops will have two sessions. Each session will have 2-3 speakers, who will also lead
the discussion. The workshop encourages delegates to also make short presentations about their
views. If any attendee wants to make a presentation, kindly contact the organizers (Pankaj Jalote
