The 21 International Conference on Information and Software
Technologies ICIST’2015 is taking place in Druskininkai, an international
spa resort town in southern Lithuania. ICIST’2015 is organized by
Faculty of Informatics, Kaunas University of Technology, and supported
by Research Council of Lithuania.
The scientific conference programme includes three invited talks and
research paper presentations in parallel sessions, and the Industrial
Tutorials day featuring presentations from the largest commercial IT
enterprises in Lithuania as well as academicians.
We have received 125 submissions this year. Every paper was reviewed
by at least two members of the international Programme Committee
consisting of 89 reviewers (supported by 62 additional reviewers)
representing more than 50 academic institutions. 51 submission were
selected as regular papers for presentation at the conference. We
believe the selection of accepted papers presented in this book is a good
reflection of the latest research on the selected topics.
The conference papers present recent results as well as discuss
research challenges, propose methodologies and describe new
applications in the area of Information Systems, Business Intelligence for
Information and Software systems, Software Engineering, and IT
The Conference Proceedings are published by Springer as a part of
Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series
and will be referred in Thomson Reuters Web of Science.

Key Notes and Speakers
Assoc. prof. dr. Marcin Paprzycki
Marcin Paprzycki (Senior Member of the ACM, Senior Member of the IEEE, Senior
Fulbright Lecturer, IEEE CS Distinguished Visitor) has received his M.S. Degree in 1986
from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland, his Ph.D. in 1990 from Southern
Methodist University in Dallas, Texas and his Doctor of Science Degree from Bulgarian
Academy of Sciences in 2008. His initial research interests were in high performance
computing and parallel computing, high performance linear algebra in particular. Over
time they evolved toward distributed systems and Internet-based computing; in particular,
agent systems. He has published more than 300 research papers and was invited to
Program Committees of over 500 international conferences. He is on editorial boards of

Autonomous Resource Access in the Internet of Things
Thursday, October 15th, 10.00 – 11.00
Internet of Things (IoT), as a new paradigm for information management requires a
number of novel solutions. The aim of the presentation is to consider methods and
approaches needed to facilitate autonomous resource access. The access policies have
not only to become capable of dealing with device-to-device interactions, but have to be
flexible enough to deal with enormous heterogeneity of entities that are to interact within
the IoT.
Prof. dr. Rolf Engelbrecht
Professor Rolf Engelbrecht directs the National Research Center for Environment and
Health in Neuherberg, Germany. He is a past president of the European Federation for
Medical Informatics and past vice president of the International Medical Informatics
Association (IMIA) and Artificial Intelligence in Medicine, Europe. Dr. Engelbrecht has,
over many years, investigated the use of ‘‘smart cards’’ as portable electronic medical
records. He is a long-standing scholar, teacher, and author in biomedical informatics.
Professor Engelbrecht is elected as an International Associate in recognition of the broad
scope of impact of his efforts in advancing the art and science of biomedical informatics
in Europe and worldwide.
Health Information Management for Better Health: Big Data, Personal
Health and more
Friday, October 16th, 09.15 – 10.30
Information is an important factor in all business areas. Health care is producing data,
knowledge and information from many different sources. Individual patient data are used
in many ways and for different purposes including statistical analysis and presentation.
Epidemiological studies lead to new knowledge end medical evidence for diagnosis and
therapy. The amount of healthcare data is increasing and new methods are needed for
management and interpretation of these large quantities of data. Strategies and methods
used in other businesses have to be analysed, possibly adapted, tested and applied.
Developments in patient centred medicine and personal medicine offer new treatment
possibilities. The relationships to developments in medical records, big data and health
information management are important. Analysis of these data may result in a new way
healthcare is provided.

Learning Environments Supported by Social Networking Platforms
Friday, October 16th, 14.15 – 15.15
The recent trends and the drivers of the knowledge based transformation in any field
affected every area of our lives and changed especially the way we learn. These trends
are changing the educational needs at all levels and influencing all learning
environments. Learning can be considered as a collaborative problem solving process
which involves social interactions and shared experience. The profound changes in our
environment emphasize collaboration and demonstrate the important role of supportive
relationship in education and underline the need for building learning communities,
communities of practice. Developing technologies indeed offer significant opportunities
for collaboration and enhancing collaborative learning. Online collaborative learning
environments revolutionized the approach to education, training, and learning at a
distance. The developing e-learning industry increased the possibilities for building online
learning communities and communities of practice through online collaboration. This
presentation will try to explore the potential of Social Networking Services and Platforms
in building and supporting learning environments. Experiences and applications will also
be shared during the presentation.

About Druskininkai
Druskininkai (population 20 000) is a year-round international resort
offering mineral bath, mud and climate therapies, located 120 km from
Vilnius and Kaunas. The name of Druskininkai derives from the word
“salt” (“druska” in Lithuanian). That’s why you can always find various
interpretations of the term here – international contemporary music
festival “Druskomanija” (“Salt mania”), plein air of artists “Druskos
metamorfozės“ (“Metamorphosis of Salt”), exhibitions of hand-made
goods made from salt, lessons of the craft for children.
“Baking a Tree-Cake” Event
Do you know what is the difference between a "tree cake"; literally
"branchy" (Lithuanian "šakotis"; Polish "sękacz") and a baumkuchen? If
not, then cultural-educational event "Baking a tree cake" is for you! All
participants of ICIST 2015 are invited to join the event during the
Place: Vienkiemių str. 5, Jaskonys, bakery “Romnesa”
Interesting facts about tree-cakes:

- Two tons of tree-cakes were baked per 24 hours in “Romnesa”;
- About 3 mln. eggs are needed per year in “Romnesa”
