The 21st 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 Applications.
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.

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

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.
