The 7th IFIP International Conference on Distributed Applications and Interoperable Systems (DAIS) is part of the federated conferences DisCoTec (Distributed Computing Techniques), together with the 9th International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages (COORDINATION) and the 9th IFIP International Conference on Formal Methods for Open Object-based Distributed Systems (FMOODS).
It will be organised by the Department of Computer Science of the University of Cyprus.
About the conference
Distributed applications and interoperable systems have become an integral part of everyday living, part of the socio-economic ecosystem of our human environment. With such interdependence between society and software, distributed software applications must be sustainable and adaptable in the long term, despite the changes in our environment.
· What do we understand by sustainability in distributed applications and interoperable systems?
· How do we ensure our distributed applications can make local adaptation to specific circumstances of their deployment?
· How do we make our interoperable systems evolvable in the face of widespread change in their environment?
· How do we integrate distributed software within the wider fabric of computing within our modern world?
· How can distributed applications and interoperable systems capitalise and exploit future trends and the changing user demographic?
The DAIS conference series addresses all aspects of distributed applications and interoperable systems: design, implementation, operation and maintenance. This time we particularly solicit papers that address sustainability issues.
DAIS’07 is the 7th event in this successful international conference series, commencing in 1997. It will be a forum for researchers, vendors and users to come together to review, discuss and learn about the future of distributed applications and interoperable systems. DAIS is now an annual event.
DAIS’07 solicits high quality papers reporting research results and/or experience reports. All papers must be original, unpublished and not submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. DAIS’07 conference themes include:
innovative distributed applications in the areas of
* enterprise computing
* mobile, grid and peer-to-peer computing
* context-aware, ubiquitous and pervasive computing
models and concepts supporting distributed applications in the areas of
middleware supporting distributed applications in the area of
* autonomic applications and systems
* context-aware, adaptive applications
* reconfigurable and self-managing applications
* quality of service-aware applications
evolution of application integration and interoperability in
* enterprise-wide and inter-enterprise integration
* semantic interoperability and semantic web services
* service-oriented applications
software engineering of distributed applications
* domain-specific modeling languages
* model evolution
* model-driven adaptation, testing and validation
Submissions must be done electronically as postscript or PDF, using the Springer LNCS style.
Full technical papers in no more than 14 pages,
Work-in-progress papers, describing on-going work and interim results, in no more than 6 pages.
Both categories of papers will be reviewed thoroughly by the DAIS’07 =20=
Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by Springer Verlag in the LNCS series.
More specific guidelines on the preparation of papers can be found on the conference website: http://www.discotec07.cs.ucy.ac.cy
