                 13th IFIP International Conference on
           Distributed Applications and Interoperable Systems
                      Florence, Italy
                      June 3-5, 2013


* Scope *

The annual IFIP DAIS conference is one of the leading international
venues to discuss all aspects of distributed applications and systems,
throughout their lifecycle. This includes the design, architecture,
implementation and operation of distributed computing systems, their
supporting middleware, appropriate software engineering methods and
tools, as well as experimental studies and practical reports.

Following the success of past conferences in this series, the 13th
International DAIS conference will provide a forum for researchers,
industry practitioners, and users, to discuss and learn about new
technologies, approaches, concepts and experiences in the field of
distributed computing.

Submission tracks: DAIS offers three distinct submission tracks
(Research papers, Practical Experience Reports, and
Work-in-progress papers). Authors should indicate in their submission
which track they are submitting to. All papers accepted in any of
the tracks will be included in the conference proceedings.

* Topics of Interest *

DAIS'13 solicits high-quality papers reporting research results and/or
experimental results in the area of distributed applications and
interoperable systems. Submissions will be judged on their originality,
significance, clarity, relevance, and technical correctness. The
topics of interest to the conference include, but are not limited to:
   - Novel and innovative distributed applications and systems, in
     particular in the areas of middleware, peer to peer systems,
     cloud and grid computing, social networking, cyber-physical
     systems, mobile computing, service-oriented computing, and
     context-aware computing;
   - Novel architectures and mechanisms, in particular in the areas of
     pub/sub systems, language-based approaches, overlay network
     protocols, virtualisation, parallelization, bio-inspired
     distributed computing;
   - System issues and design goals, including self-management,
     trust and reputation, cooperation incentives and fairness,
     fault-tolerance and dependability, energy-efficiency,
     performance, robustness and scalability;
   - Engineering and tools, including model-driven engineering,
     domain-specific languages, design patterns and methods, testing
     and validation, distributed debugging.

* Submission and Publication *

DAIS'13 offers three submission tracks:
   - Full research papers in no more than 14 pages.
   - Full practical experience reports, including 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. All papers must be original,
     unpublished, and not submitted for publication elsewhere.
     Contributions should be submitted electronically as PDF, using
     the Springer LNCS style (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs)
     to the conference submission website:

Each paper will undergo a thorough process of peer reviews by the
Program Committee. All papers accepted in any of the conference
tracks will be included in the conference proceedings, which will
be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series. 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.

* Program Committee Co-Chairs *

Jim Dowling       (KTH / SICS, Sweden)
François Taïani   (Université de Rennes 1 / IRISA, France)
