                                DAIS 2012
                   12th International IFIP Conference on
             Distributed Applications and Interoperable Systems

Co-located with
  International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages 2012
  Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems 2012

                     Stockholm, Sweden - June 13-16, 2012

About the Conference

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.

Important Dates

* Abstract submission: February 20, 2012 (optional)
* Paper submission: February 27, 2012 (extended)
* Author notification: March 26, 2012
* Camera-ready version: April 9, 2012
* Conferences: June 13-15, 2012
* Workshops: June 16, 2012

Submission and 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.

Papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series.

All papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted for publication 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. 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.

Topics of Interest

DAIS'12 solicits high quality papers reporting research results and/or 
experience reports in the area of distributed applications and 
interoperable systems. Submissions will be judged on their originality, 
significance, clarity, relevance, and correctness. DAIS'12 conference 
topics include, but are not limited to:

* Novel and innovative applications and systems: mobile and context-aware 
applications, ubiquitous and pervasive computing, Internet of services, 
Internet of things, service-oriented computing, autonomous and 
self-adaptive systems, cloud computing, peer to peer systems, sensor and 
ad-hoc networks, systems of systems, collaborative intelligent devices, 
social networks, apps for smartphones and pad-computers.

* Architectures, architectural styles, middleware, platforms, distributed 
computing infrastructures, application level protocols, and devices (e.g., 
smartphones) supporting distributed applications.

* Properties and design goals: Security, trust, privacy, dependability, 
resilience, safety, performance, scalability, usability, efficiency, 
sustainability, green computing, interoperability, autonomy, self-* 

* Engineering and tools: modeling, model-driven architecture, 
domain-specific languages, design, patterns, development, deployment, 
validation, testing, benchmarking, operation, management, adaptation, 

* Challenges: change, evolution, complexity, large and ultra large scale, 
dynamism, mobility, heterogeneity.
