November 1-3, 2021 - Hammamet, Tunisia



The MEDES Main Conference: 

The 13th International Conference on Management of Digital EcoSystems (MEDES'21) will be held from 1 to 3 November 2021 in Hammamet, Tunisia. Its main objective is to develop and bring together a diverse community from academia, research laboratories, and industry interested in exploring the manifold challenges and issues related to web technologies and resource management of Digital Ecosystems and how current approaches and technologies can be evolved and adapted to this end. The conference seeks related original research papers, industrial papers and proposals for demonstrations, tutorials and workshops.

The conference is accompanied by satellite events, including demonstration papers, special tracks (4-5 papers), and workshops. 


Workshops / Special Tracks: 

Typically, workshops or Special tracks focus on multiple topics related to model and data engineering. For this edition, we would also like to encourage workshops and Special tracks focusing on practical applications of research in business/industry and on joint projects run by industry and research entities.

We do not limit the list of topics to the aforementioned and we encourage representatives of research and business to submit proposals promoting their achievements.

Proposals should be emailed to the workshop’s co-chairs:
