                           12th International Conference on
                    COOPERATIVE INFORMATION SYSTEMS (CoopIS 2004)
                              Larnaca, Cyprus, Oct 25-29, 2004


                Proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag

    The Cooperative Information System (CIS) paradigm has been growing and
    gaining substantial importance in technological infrastructure (e.g.,
    middleware and Web technologies) and application areas (e.g., Business
    Process Management, e-Commerce, e-Government, virtual enterprises).
    CoopIS is the leading conference for researchers and practitioners in
    CIS. CoopIS brings together researchers from a variety of disciplines
    such as collaborative work, Internet data management, electronic
    commerce, human-computer interaction, workflow management, web services,
    agent technologies, and software architectures. We encourage papers
    that emphasize cooperation across multiple disciplines.

    CoopIS 2004 is a joint event with two other conferences organized within
    the global theme "On the Move to meaningful Internet Systems 2004:
    Distributed Object and Applications (DOA) and Ontologies, Databases and
    Applications of Semantics (ODBASE)". All three events will be hosted in
    Cyprus during the week October 25-29 2004. More details about the
    federated event can be found at http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf.

    The CoopIS 2004 has the theme "Towards process-aware cooperative
    information systems." The WWW and related technologies have created an
    interconnected world where it is easy to exchange information. However,
    to create systems that enable true cooperation the focus on information
    exchange is too limited. To reach common goals parties need to agree on
    a process. Process-awareness plays an important role at any level
    ranging from users and applications to intra- and interorganizational
    entities. Of course, submissions on all topics related to cooperative
    information systems are encouraged, including (but not limited to) the
