First International Conference on 'Networked Digital Technologies(NDT 2009)
(technically co-sponsored by IEEE Communications Society)

Ostrava, The Czech Republic, July 29 - 31, 2009
Proceedings will be published and indexed by IEEE Xplore

The proposed conference on the above theme will be held at the VSB Technical University, Ostrava, Czech Republic from July 28 - 31, 2009 which aims to enable researchers build connections between different digital applications.

Currently, a number of institutions across the countries are working to evolve better models to provide collaborative technology services for scholarship by creating shared cyberspace thro expert collaboration, but this is a challenge for the institutions for a number of reasons. In the last few years, the landscape of digital technology applications projects for the various disciplines in humanities, social sciences, and sciences appears induced by many initiatives. For the creation of research clusters, the research community has thousands of databases, websites, local computing clusters, and web-based tools around individual themes, interests and projects. In most cases, these tools and resources are and were created to meet the specific needs of a particular community. In many cases, the funding and support for these critical initiatives is fragile and temporary, and directed in piecemeal fashion. There is a need to provide concerted efforts in building federated digital technologies that will enable the formation of network of digital technologies.
