** Please disseminate the following to your colleagues and students that
could be interested.

The third edition of the Distributed  Architecture modeling for Novel
Component based Embedded systems (DANCE) workshop
will be organized in conjunction with the  38th Euromicro Conference on
Software Engineering and Advanced Applications (SEAA)
in Cesme, Izmir, Turkey, September 5-8, 2012
(http://seaa2012.ii.metu.edu.tr/).  This year, the event is  included in
the principal conference as a special session of the MOCS track 

We hope to see you at DANCE 2012.

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 paradigms
 . 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
