Call For Papers

Goal of the Workshop:

The aim of this workshop is to discuss and advance the state-of-the-art, research and development in the area of resource aware systems, and to promote the study of both fundamental and practical aspects of component-based design of such systems. The workshop addresses researchers from different disciplines in academia and industry, as well as practitioners, who share interests in resource aware system design. The focus will be on techniques and experiences drawn from current component-based design practice, as well as on emergent topics.

Theme of the Workshop:

The category of resource-constrained systems encompasses a broad range of systems, from very simple and heavily resource-constrained systems to complex resource-aware distributed systems. Such systems should be customizable, easy to use, upgrade and maintain. A time-tested way to build diverse systems with these desirable attributes at low cost is through componentization and reuse: building systems by integrating configurable and evolvable components in a systematic way. The latter creates the need for models and associated rules to guide componentization, frameworks for system integration, and techniques for verification and validation of component-based design and implementation. The component-based techniques should cover systems having minimal resource requirements, yet be usable on all ranges of resource-aware systems that fulfill these requirements.

Scope of the Workshop (Call-for-Papers):

Any submission whose content is relevant to the area of resource-aware system design will be considered, but any submission whose subject matter is related to one of the following topics will be particularly welcome:

• Modeling and Specifying Resource-aware Systems
- models for software components and component interaction: real-time, safety-critical, embedded, or mobile systems
- specification of extra-functional properties of components
- resource models
- componentization of legacy code
- certification of components and software architectures
- architecture description languages for resource-aware systems
- service-oriented architectures

• Analysis Techniques
- formal techniques for verification and validation of component software: model-checking, abstraction, code synthesis, model-based testing, monitoring, debugging, model extraction
- static analysis techniques
- compositional theories of refinement
- resource-usage impact on quality of service (QoS) attributes

• Platform-aware Design
- run-time mechanisms and middleware
- scheduling and resource management
- component-driven hardware-software co-design

• Tools and Case-studies
- applications, experience reports and case studies in component software
- tools for resource-constrained system development

Important Dates:

• Deadline for paper submission: Extended to April 7, 2014
• Notification of acceptance: Extended to April 28, 2014
• Camera-ready due: Extended to May 7, 2014

Paper Submission:
Papers must be submitted electronically via the COMPSAC Submission Page ( ), and “Track" Component-based Design of Resource-Constrained Systems should be selected. The paper submission site is open. The format of submitted papers should follow the guidelines for the IEEE conference proceedings. All papers will be carefully reviewed by at least three reviewers. Papers are limited to 6 pages. Up to 2 additional pages (for a total of 8 pages) will be available for $250 per additional page charge. Accepted papers will be published in the workshop proceedings of COMPSAC 2014, by the IEEE Computer Society Press. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a participant of the workshop and present the paper at the workshop, in order to have the paper published in the proceedings.
