                             CALL FOR PAPERS
                      (Deadline: February 6, 2011)

                               DAIS 2011
                  11th International IFIP Conference on
            Distributed Applications and Interoperable Systems

Co-located with
 13th International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages (Coordination 2011)
 13th Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems (FMOODS 2011)

                    Reykjavik, Iceland - June 6-9 2011

About the Conference

Distributed application technology has become a foundation of the information
society. Novel computing and communication technologies have brought a multitude
of challenging application areas, including mobile computing, ubiquitous
services, service-oriented architectures, autonomous and self-adapting systems,
cloud computing, peer-to-peer systems, or social networks, just to name a few.
New challenges include the need for novel abstractions supporting the
development, deployment, management and interoperability of evolutionary and
complex applications and services. Therefore, middleware technology that bridges
applications, platforms and users through multi-disciplinary user requirements
(like security, privacy, usability, efficiency, safety, semantic and pragmatic
interoperability of data and services, dependability, trust and self-adaptivity)
also become of special interest. It is envisaged that future complex
applications will far exceed those of today in terms of such requirements.

The DAIS conference series addresses all aspects of distributed applications,
including their design, implementation and operation, supporting middleware,
appropriate software engineering methodologies and tools, as well as
experimental studies and practice reports. This time we particularly welcome in
contributions on architectures, platforms, and infrastructures for large scale
distributed applications and services.

DAIS'11 is the 11th 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.

Topics of Interest

DAIS'11 solicits high quality papers reporting research results and/or
experience reports. Submissions will be judged on their originality,
significance, interest, clarity, relevance, and correctness.

DAIS'11 especially encourages submissions addressing the following topics:
- Novel and innovative applications in the areas of:
    * Ubiquitous and pervasive computing
    * Sensor and actuator networks
    * Mobile computing
    * Peer-to-peer systems and platforms
    * Cloud and enterprise computing
    * Collaborative intelligent devices (e.g., robots)
- Models, methodology and concepts supporting distributed applications with
respect to:
    * Sustainability
    * Dependability and resilience
    * Evolution
    * Energy efficiency
    * Robustness and trust
    * Usability
    * Autonomy
- Middleware and techniques supporting distributed applications in the areas of:
    * Adaptive and autonomic systems
    * Resilient systems
    * Mobile and ubiquitous systems
    * Context- and QoS-aware systems
    * Evolution of service-oriented applications
    * Enterprise-wide and global integration
    * Semantic interoperability
    * Application and service management
    * Domain-specific modelling languages
    * Model-driven software development, testing, validation, and adaptation
    * Model evolution
    * Software architectures and patterns

Paper Submission

DAIS'11 seeks:
- Full technical papers 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 postscript or
PDF, using the SPRINGER LNCS style. Each paper will undergo a thorough process
of review and the conference proceedings 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 attend the conference if the
paper is accepted.
