ADAMUS 2011 : 5th Workshop on Adaptive and DependAble Mobile Ubiquitous Systems
Call For Papers
The vision of mobile and ubiquitous systems is becoming a reality thanks to the recent advances in wireless communication and device miniaturization. However, the widespread industrial uptake of these systems is still compromised due to the highly error-prone and heterogeneous mobile provisioning environment, which induces several impairments to the normal operation. Thus, how to improve
dependability of these systems is still an open issue. A variety of research studies have been produced proposing methods, proof-of-concept prototypes, and disciplines to design, develop, and maintain novel ubiquitous services. Despite these efforts, it is still unclear whether current solutions are able to achieve the dependability level imposed by emergent mobile ubiquitous applications, such as smart urban mobility, wireless control of robots, and ambient assisted living. This is partially due to the lack of interaction between ubiquitous computing and dependable computing research communities. The different research perspectives cause similar problems to be treated in different ways, without exploiting the potential of synergies that may arise from a closer and multidisciplinary approach.
The ambition and mission of ADAMUS is to put on the foreground all above issues and to help bridge the gap between these research communities. In order to reach these objectives, ADAMUS aims to disseminate solutions to design and develop adaptive and dependable mobile ubiquitous systems; devise conceptual models and paradigms for change tolerance; provide analytical and simulation models and tools to measure a system’s ability to withstand faults and to re-adjust to new environments. Building on the success of the last four editions, ADAMUS 2011 aims at serving as a meeting ground and common platform of discussion for researchers and industrial bodies in the field of adaptive and dependable mobile ubiquitous systems.
Researchers and practitioners are encouraged to participate with high quality papers able to identify open issues, discuss the limits and/or advantages of existing solutions, and propose original and
innovative techniques for adaptive and dependable applications over mobile environments. The main topics of the Workshop include, but are not limited to the following:
• Dependability and adaptation requirements and open issues for mobile ubiquitous systems;
• Design principles, models, and techniques for realizing dependable and adaptive mobile ubiquitous systems;
• Context data provisioning and modelling, and context-based infrastructures;
• Frameworks and techniques enabling advanced dependable applications on ubiquitous systems;
• Human-machine interaction and usability;
• Multi-device and highly heterogeneous ubiquitous systems;
• End-to-end approaches to the quality of experience of mobile services;
• Autonomous systems for adaptation and dependability;
• Mobile-enabled middleware architectures and standards for heterogeneous, dependable networks;
• Dependability and scalability of web technologies to ubiquitous systems;
• Architectures for resource and network monitoring and adaptation to networks conditions;
• Dependability measurement studies of mobile systems and services;
• Cellular networks and mobile phones dependability issues;
• Experience on real-world applications or prototypes of adaptive and dependable mobile ubiquitous systems.
• Resilience of evolvable systems and services;
• Model-driven engineering of adaptive and dependable systems.
PAPER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
ADAMUS 2011 invites authors to submit original and unpublished work. Papers must be written in English and should
not exceed 6 pages. Submissions must adhere to the IEEE Computer Society camera-ready 8.5"x11" two-column camera-ready
format. Further details can be found at http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/formatting. Each paper must be
submitted as a single Portable Document Format (PDF) file. We recommend that you embed fonts where possible to
improve portability. We also strongly recommend you print the file and review it for integrity (fonts, symbols, equations
etc.) before submitting it. A defective printing of your paper can undermine its chance of success. Instructions for the online
submission of manuscripts will be available on the Web site (http://www.adamus.ua.ac.be/).
Acceptance implies that at least one of the authors will register and present the paper. Workshop papers will be published
and archived on IEEE Xplore in a workshops only "DSN-W" volume that appears separately from the main DSN volume
and can be cited using its own ISBN number.
