The 1st ACM International Conference on Management of Emergent Digital EcoSystems (MEDES) has been accommodated by INSA-Lyon, France. MEDES is conceived as a new perspective and light shedding into the chronic issues of complexity, scalability, flexibility, stability, diversity and distribution in computing, software engineering, computer science, as well as in digital systems engineering and communications in general. At the cross-roads of Nature Inspired Computing, Theoretical Biology, Social Sciences, Computer Science and other disciplines, this volume and conference aspires to contribute some answers to the quests of the nature of a Digital Ecosystem as well as its relationship with real ecosystems conceived as complex adaptive systems. Since real ecosystems already exhibit properties useful to drive complex systems and problems towards higher order of complexity, scalability, diversity, the digital counterparts as manifested by, e.g., interconnected business systems, infrastructures of the Internet and Web, distributed systems, computing and heterogeneous data and knowledge management, multi-sensored networks and mobile computing, are some subject areas which can be perceived as digital ecosystems with their own equilibrium and dynamics, evolutionary aspects, complexities, stabilities, diversities. To this extent, ACM MEDES 2009 brought together a diverse community from academia, research laboratories and industry interested in exploring the manifold challenges and issues related to Digital Ecosystems and how current approaches and technologies can be evolved and adapted to this end. The International Program Committee secured an interesting mixture of as many as possible aspects of Digital Ecosystems, which have been presented by a series of sessions of regular, short papers, as well as posters and demonstrations of industrial, business and societal case studies. The contributions addressed a wide spectrum and variety of subjects areas and current challenges in digital systems and computing such as interoperability and data integration, ontology engineering, information retrieval, business intelligence, digital watermarking, machine learning, image processing, multimedia, service oriented architectures, social networks, social Web, modelling languages, security, trust, privacy, infrastructures, networks, etc. The contributions as presented in this volume state 41 full papers, together with some short and poster-demonstration papers. These have been selected out of 102 papers submitted to the main conference.
