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 problem.

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.

We would like to promote new modeling and programming paradigms that 
allow system and software developers to express distribution in a 
platform independent manner.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  * Architecture and execution support design for distributed applications
  * Distribution techniques which exploit new models and protocols of
    distributed computing systems
  * Distributed adaptive and self-adaptive softwares
  * Modeling of resource management, resource scaling polices and strategies
  * Component-based design for building collaborative distributed systems
  * Description language, Patterns, Meta- modeling, Multi- modeling, UML
    Profiles, DSMLs, ...
  * Specification of distributed architecture for Model Driven
    Development process
  * Specification of distributed architecture using programming
    paradigms (object, component and aspect-oriented programming ...)
  * Verification, testing and validation of distributed architecture
  * Designing simulation frameworks that can model designs and predict
    system properties, such as responsiveness and availability, based on
    simulated and historical data
  * Standards-based distributed ontology models and architectures that
    enable open interfaces with plug-and-play hardware and software
  * Tools support for assisting modeling, deployment and configuration
    of distributed software architectures
  * Case studies, empirical results, experience reports, suit-tools


We are inviting the submission of papers with high quality research 
contributions, work in progress, experimental and ongoing projects results.

The following types of submission are accepted:

  * Long papers (10 pages): reporting substantial, completed, and
    previously unpublished research
  * Short papers (6 pages): describing work in progress or industrial

*Format*: ll submitted papers must be written in English and conform to 
the ACM double column format (10pt, single-space, double-column and 
include an abstract of up to 150 words...).
The format of the submission should follow ACM Formatting Guidelines
