Call For Papers


Co-located with
13th International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages (Coordination 2011)
13th Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems (FMOODS 2011)


Distributed application technology has become a foundation of the information society. Novel computing and communication technologies have brought a multitude of challenging application areas, including mobile computing, ubiquitous services, service-oriented architectures, autonomous and self-adapting systems, cloud computing, peer-to-peer systems, or social networks, just to name a few. New challenges include the need for novel abstractions supporting the development, deployment, management and interoperability of evolutionary and complex applications and services. Therefore, middleware technology that bridges applications, platforms and users through multi-disciplinary user requirements (like security, privacy, usability, efficiency, safety, semantic and pragmatic interoperability of data and services, dependability, trust and self-adaptivity) also become of special interest. It is envisaged that future complex applications will far exceed those of today in terms of such requirements.

The DAIS conference series addresses all aspects of distributed applications, including their design, implementation and operation, supporting middleware, appropriate software engineering methodologies and tools, as well as experimental studies and practice reports. This time we particularly welcome in contributions on architectures, platforms, and infrastructures for large scale distributed applications and services.

DAIS'11 is the 11th event in a series of successful international conferences started in 1997. It will provide a forum for researchers, application and platform service vendors, and users, to discuss and learn about new approaches, trends, concepts and experiences in the fields of distributed computing.


DAIS'11 solicits high quality papers reporting research results and/or experience reports. Submissions will be judged on their originality, significance, interest, clarity, relevance, and correctness.

DAIS'11 especially encourages submissions addressing the following topics:
- Novel and innovative applications in the areas of:
* Ubiquitous and pervasive computing
* Sensor and actuator networks
* Mobile computing
* Peer-to-peer systems and platforms
* Cloud and enterprise computing
* Collaborative intelligent devices (e.g., robots)
- Models, methodology and concepts supporting distributed applications with respect to:
* Sustainability
* Dependability and resilience
* Evolution
* Energy efficiency
* Robustness and trust
* Usability
* Autonomy
- Middleware and techniques supporting distributed applications in the areas of:
* Adaptive and autonomic systems
* Resilient systems
* Mobile and ubiquitous systems
* Context- and QoS-aware systems
* Evolution of service-oriented applications
* Enterprise-wide and global integration
* Semantic interoperability
* Application and service management
* Domain-specific modelling languages
* Model-driven software development, testing, validation, and adaptation
* Model evolution
* Software architectures and patterns


DAIS'11 seeks:
- Full technical papers in no more than 14 pages
- Work-in-progress papers, describing ongoing work and interim results, in no more than 6 pages

All papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Contributions should be submitted electronically as postscript or PDF, using the SPRINGER LNCS style. Each paper will undergo a thorough process of review and the conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. Proceedings will be made available at the conference. Submission implies that at least one author will attend the conference if the paper is accepted.
