Distributed systems research covers a wide spectrum of applications 
ranging across embedded real/time systems, commercial transaction 
systems, transportation systems, and military/space systems.  Such 
systems raise several issues not found in single processor systems. The 
main difficulty arises when considering dependability, security, 
adaptability and resources  constrained  computing.  This area  
requires  computing  systems  to run  software in an  efficient and 
trustworthy way. That is, in order to be able to design complex 
architectures in reasonable time, novel and effective design 
methodologies are needed to automatically build applications from 
high-level descriptions to take into account what needs to be deployed 
on hardware. To remedy this weakness, combining both model and component 
seems to be a very promising cocktail for building solutions to this 

The introduction of the component approach in the development of 
embedded systems allows facilitating their design by building through an 
assembly of existing components. Indeed, this approach provides a clear 
separation between the specification and implementation of components. 
Note however that in the context of component software, distributed 
architecture is significantly more demanding than that of traditional 
monolithic integrated solution. Model-driven engineering provides a very 
useful contribution for the design of distributed systems since it 
bridges the gap between design issues and implementation concerns. It 
helps the designer to concentrate on application structure and required 
behavior and it permits us to specify in a separate way non-functional 
requirements such as underlying execution infrastructure/middleware, 
dependability and reconfiguration issues that are very important to 
guide the implementation process.

The main focus of DANCE   is on the topic of making design and 
implementation expert knowledge available to distributed real time 
embedded systems (DRTES) engineering  processes.   Special  emphasis 
will be devoted to promote discussion and interaction between 
researchers and practitioners focused on the particularly challenging 
task to efficiently integrate dependability and reconfiguration 
solutions within the restricted available design space and time. 
Furthermore, one important focus is on the potential benefits of the 
combination of model- driven engineering with languages  and 
representation of component engineering solutions. The workshop aims to 
bring together researchers from various fields involved in the 
development and deployment of component in embedded systems with a 
particular focus on the transfer of results from fundamental research to 
the industrial development of energy, resource and time constrained 
applications.  The exchange of concepts, prototypes, research ideas, and 
other results which contribute to the academic arena and also benefit 
business and industrial communities, is of particular interest. Some of 
the topics that we seek to include in the workshop are related to the 
development of models and tools to support the inclusion of energy, 
resource and time constraints within dependability and reconfiguration 
requirements  issues into the embedded systems  engineering process.

The session topics include but are not limited to:

- Engineering of  component based  DRTES:
  . Specification of distributed architecture for model driven 
development process
  . Architecture and execution support design
  . Specification of distributed architecture using new programming 
  . Description languages, Patterns, Meta- modeling, Multi- modeling, 
UML Profiles, DSLs, ...

- Dependability and reconfiguration with energy, resource and time 
   . Distributed adaptive and self-adaptive softwares for DRTES 
applications with constraints
   . Reconfiguration and dependability requirements specification 
component-based approaches to engineering
   . Tools support for assisting modeling, deployment and configuration 
of DRTES with constraints
   . Case studies, empirical results, experience reports, suit-tools

Accepted papers will be included in the proceedings, published by the IEEE
Computer Society Press, and the IEEE Xplore Digital library.

Extended versions of selected papers will be considered for publication in
the Journal on Information and Software Technology (Elsevier).
