14th International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages


* Scope *

As ICT technologies and software-intensive systems are increasingly
embedded into the fabric of everyday life, effective coordination
techniques are needed to enhance our ability to develop software that
is responsive to emerging societal demands and changing application
needs, exploits effectively recent advances in computing and
communication technology, and is capable of adaptive behaviour in the
short and in the long term. COORDINATION is the premier forum for
exposing innovating research results and relevant experience reports
on software technologies for collaboration and coordination in
concurrent, distributed, and socio-technical systems. Its distinctive
feature is the emphasis on high-level abstractions that capture
interaction patterns manifest at all levels of the software architecture
and extending into the realm of the end-user and social domain.

Coordination 2012 seeks high-quality contributions on the usage, study,
design and implementation of languages, models and techniques for
coordination in distributed, concurrent, pervasive, and multicore
software systems. The focus is on languages, formalisms, models,
middleware, patterns, and algorithms that conceptually support a proper
engineering of the interaction dimension. Research paper should
demonstrate an ability to increase modularity, adaptivity, simplify
reasoning, and ultimately enhance the software development process and
its integration into a socio-techical context. Both practical and
foundational perspectives are of interest.Given the increasing importance
of coordination models and technologies in almost every domain of our
existence, the organizers of Coordination 2012 are keen to provide a
forum for studies that address practical concerns and industrial grade
solutions, e.g., the introduction of concurrency and distribution
concepts to novel domains, comparative evaluations of programming models
on important problems, and the adoption of domain-specific languages.
Experience reports are thus welcome that describe lessons learned from
the application of proposed models and techniques to problems in the real
world.In addition, the conference this year will welcome short "Visions
in Progress" papers that tries to look far ahead into the future of ICT
and society to expose innovative - though preliminary - ideas on highly
innovative models, technologies, or applications, related to coordination

* Publication *

All Research and Experience Papers must report on original unpublished
work and cannot be under review for publication elsewhere. Innovation,
scientific and technical soundness, and the capability to prove the
advantages of the proposed techniques, other than their potential for
applicability, will be the key criteria for evaluating submissions.
Maximum length: 15 pages.

Visions in Progress papers can report on work that has already been
presented elsewhere, but the paper in itself must be a new synthesis and
must clearly outline the motivation for the vision and the path that can
eventually lead to its realization. Solid motivations, radical innovation,
capability to look far beyond the state of the art, and feasibility of
the proposed vision, will be the key criteria for evaluating submissions.
Maximum length: 5 pages.

All contributions should be submitted electronically as postscript or PDF,
using the Springer LNCS style, via EasyChair. Submissions exceeding the
state length will be rejected without reviewing.

Each paper will undergo a thorough evaluation and the conference
proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series.
Proceedings will be made available at the conference. Submission is a
firm commitment that at least one of the authors will attend the conference,
if the paper is accepted.

12th IFIP International Conference on
Distributed Applications and Interoperable Systems


* Scope *

The DAIS conference series addresses all aspects of distributed
applications, including their architecture, design, implementation and
operation, the supporting middleware, appropriate software engineering
methodologies and tools, as well as experimental studies and practice reports.
DAIS'12 is the 12th 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.

* Publication *

DAIS'12 seeks:
- Full research papers in no more than 14 pages.
- Full experimental and evaluation studies, case studies, and practice
reports 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 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 register and attend the
conference if the paper is accepted.

IFIP International Conference on
Formal Techniques for Distributed Systems
joint international conference
14th Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems
32nd Formal Techniques for Networked and Distributed Systems


* Scope *

The joint conference FMOODS & FORTE is a forum for fundamental
research on theory and applications of distributed systems. The
conference solicits original contributions that advance the science
and technologies for distributed systems, with special interest
in the areas of:

* component- and model-based design
* object technology, modularity, software adaptation
* service-oriented, ubiquitous, pervasive, grid, cloud and mobile
computing systems
* software quality, reliability, availability, safety and security
* adaptive distributed systems, self-stabilization, self-healing/organizing
* verification, validation, formal analysis and testing of the above

The conference encourages contributions that combine theory and
practice and that exploit formal methods and theoretical foundations
to present novel solutions to problems arising from the development
of distributed systems. FMOODS & FORTE covers distributed computing
models and formal specification, testing and verification methods.
The application domains include all kinds of application-level
distributed systems, telecommunication services, Internet, embedded
and real time systems, as well as networking and communication
security and reliability.

* Publication *

The FMOODS & FORTE 2012 conference calls for high quality papers presenting
research results and/or application reports related to the research areas
in conference scope.

Like in the past, the conference proceedings will be published by Springer
in the LNCS Series. Proceedings will be made available at the conference.

All papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted for publication
elsewhere. Contributions should be submitted electronically in PDF via the
EasyChair system. Each paper will undergo a peer review of at least 3
anonymous reviewers. The papers must be prepared using the SPRINGER LNCS style.

Research papers, experience reports as well as tool or system description
papers are all encouraged. Papers must not exceed 15 pages in length,
including figures and references. For referees' convenience, any
additional material that may help assessing the merits of the submission
but not to be included in the final version, like some detailed proofs,
may be placed in a clearly marked appendix (not to be counted in the
page limit). Referees can ignore the appendix, and papers must be
understandable without them.

Submissions not adhering to the above specified constraints may be rejected
immediately, without review.
