The International Conference on Network-Based Information Systems (NBiS) started as an International workshop in 1998, which was held in Vienna, Austria in conjunction with DEXA International Conference. From 1998, NBiS had been held successfully every year and high quality papers are presented. After the 9-th NBiS, which was held at Krakow, Poland in 2006, NBiS was promoted to an International Conference and the 10-th NBiS was held in Regensburg, Germany in 2007 as International Conference.
NBIS is becoming a very important event for network research community and is improved every year in quality and quantity.
The 12-th NBiS was held at Indiana University Purdue University at Indianapolis (IUPUI), USA, from August 19 to August 21, 2009.
The 13-th NBiS will be held at Takayama, Gifu, Japan from September 15 to September 17, 2010.
Takayama is a very traditional beautiful city located in Gifu Prefecture.

The main objective of NBiS is to bring together researchers from both network systems and information systems with the aim of encouraging the exchange of ideas and experience between these two communities. It will represent an international forum to give an overview of the most recent trends.
In the past decade, our network infrastructure has undergone radical changes. It has evolved from a small number of interconnected computer networks to a global socio-technical infrastructure, where people communicate and interact spontaneously in cyber space and with the cyber physical world, create content and share knowledge over a network of heterogeneous networks. In the future, global society will increasingly rely on socio-technical networks designed in harmony with societal values and economic viability, with enhanced security, privacy, resilience, availability and manageability, and the ability to incorporate as yet unforeseen technologies, applications and services.
Future networks should be available anytime and anywhere, be accessible from any communication device, require little or no management overhead, be resilient to failures and malicious attacks, and be trustworthy for all types of communication. They must be able to evolve over time to incorporate new technologies, support new classes of applications, and meet new requirements and challenges. They also need to accommodate growth and unforeseen changes across many dimensions, including traffic load, network size and topology, physical link characteristics, different types of applications, and heterogeneity, without significant performance degradation.
The conference scope ranges from home networks with numerous "smart" appliances to enterprise networks, core networks, and application-level networks.
