1st Track on Adaptive and Reconfigurable Service-oriented and
component-based Applications and Architectures (AROSA 2011)

Conference Track @ 20th WETICE Conference

27 - 29 June 2011, Paris, France

The goal of this track is to bring together researchers and practitioners
both from the Academia and from the Industry working in the areas of
Service-oriented and component-based software applications and architectures
and addressing adaptation and reconfiguration issues. Different
investigation topics are involved, such as: CBSE, SOA, Functional and Non
Functional (NF) requirements (QoS, performance, resilience), monitoring,
diagnosis, decision and execution of adaptation and reconfiguration.
Different research axes are covered: concepts, methods, techniques, and
tools to design, develop, deploy and manage adaptive and reconfigurable
software systems.

The development of composite services poses very interesting challenges
concerning their functional and NF requirements. On the one hand, a
composite software system depends on the NF requirements of its constituting
components in order to provide a satisfactory service to the user. On the
other hand, the main issues for the fulfillment of QoS and service level
agreements (SLA) are concerned with performance variability. Indeed, the QoS
may evolve frequently, either because of internal changes or because of
workload fluctuations. The performance and the robustness of the composite
software system may be significantly improved by monitoring the execution of
the components and by flexibly reacting to degradation and anomalies in a
timely fashion.

The concept of adaptive and reconfigurable software systems has been
introduced in order to describe architectures which exhibit such properties.
An adaptive and reconfigurable software system can repair itself if any
execution problems occur, in order to successfully complete its own
execution, while respecting functional and NF agreements. In the design of
an adaptive and reconfigurable software system, several aspects have to be
considered. For instance, the system should be able to predict or to detect
degradations and failures as soon as possible and to enact suitable recovery
actions. Moreover, different NF requirements service levels might be
considered in order to complete the execution in case of failure.


For this track, contributions are devoted to functional and non functional
adaptability and reconfiguration management in service-oriented and
component-based software systems. Specifically, the relevant topics include,
but are not limited to:
- Distributed and centralized collaborative solutions for the diagnosis and
repair of software systems
- Design for the diagnosability and repairability
- Collaborative Management of NF requirements (quality, security,
robustness, availability)
- Monitoring simple and composite architectures, components and services
- Semantic (or analytic) architectural and behavioral models for monitoring
of software systems
- Dynamic reconfiguration of CB and SO architectures
- Collaborative planning and decision making
- Collaborative technologies for ensuring autonomic properties
- Predictive management of adaptability.
- Collaborative Management of autonomic properties
- Experiences in practical adaptive and reconfigurable CB and SO
- Tools and prototypes for managing adaptability of CB and SO applications


Paper Submission: March 5, 2011
Decision Notification (Electronic): April 4, 2011
Camera-Ready Submission & Pre-registration: April 29, 2011


Authors are invited to submit full papers (about 8 pages) or short papers
(about 4 pages) of double column, as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines
Papers should be submitted via the Easychair submission site
The decision about the acceptance and rejection of the submitted papers will
be taken by the track chairs based on rigorous evaluations and
recommendations that will be made by the members of the program committee.
Every submitted paper will be evaluated by at least three members of the
program committee.
Accepted papers will be published along with the WETICE 2011 proceedings by
the IEEE Computer Society Press. A journal special issue is planned for a
selection of papers after the track.
