Special Issue on

"Reliable Software Technologies for Dependable Distributed Systems"
JOURNAL OF SYSTEMS ARCHITECTURE (JSA), Elsevier.

(Indexed by JCR)

Submission deadline: April 20th, 2016
-------------------------------------------------------------------------


SCOPE AND TOPICS:


The number of distributed applications as well as the number of users accessing
remote infrastructures and applications has increased exponentially in the last
decade. New computing infrastructures are now capable of hosting complex
applications, being still the main bottleneck on the software side. The software
platforms are constantly challenged by the progress pace of hardware, e.g.,
multi-core, GPU accelerated processing, or high speed intra- and inter-node
communication networks. The software level highly impacts systems’ dependability.

This special issue calls for contributions on design and implementation of
dependable systems. Software intensive dependable systems design and implementation
models that efficiently manage the platform resources. Contributions on the
selection and evaluation of distributed interaction models for middleware, software
technology choices, model-based design including accurate though flexible temporal
behavior modeling, resource efficiency, performance, scalability, and coordination
are requested. Contributions may focus at the different levels of the software
stack of a reliable system: operating systems, middleware, programming models,
security, and related mechanisms to enhance the flexibility and reliability.

Topics include (but are not limited to) the challenging issues in the design of
reliable and resource efficient software infrastructures for dependable distributed
systems, possibly at large scale:

* Distribution models in middleware (publish-subscribe, remote invocations, events,etc.)
* Model driven design
* Resource management, quality of service, and real-time
* Operating systems and virtualization technology
* Software enabling tools for cyber-physical systems
* Distributed embedded systems
* Performance and quality models in distributed dependable settings
* Exploiting computation power of hardware (multi-core, GPUs, etc.)
* Experiences in actual application scenarios
* Security in large scale deployments
* Quality-aware on-line stream processing


SUBMISSION FORMAT:

Contributions should be novel, original work, not previously published. Papers should
not be under review at any scientific event (either conference or workshop).

Papers that have been previously published in conferences or journals are encouraged
to be submitted if they contain, at least, 35% new material and results. This should
be clearly indicated in the cover letter.

Submissions will be between 8 and 10 pages in double column format at the initial
submission stage. Up to 12 pages after considering reviewers comments and for the
camera ready version.



IMPORTANT DATES:

The timeline for the review process is as follows:

- Submission: April 20th, 2016

- Tentative publication: December 16 to April 17
