Topics for discussion
The emergence of 4th generation communication systems, the evolution of the Internet technologies, the convergence of the telecom and datacom, wireless and fixed communication systems and applications pave the path for ubiquitous service and application provision. Innovative solutions are required for the development, implementation and operation of distributed applications in complex IT environments full of diversity and heterogeneity. Today, systematic application development support is lacking for the emerging wide spectrum of distributed systems ranging from ambient intelligence to global computing scenarios. Following the evolution of the field, DAIS'05 will focus on models, technologies and platforms for interoperable, scalable and adaptable distributed applications within all kinds of computing environments.
In keeping with the focus on models, technologies and platforms for interoperable, scalable and adaptable distributed applications, and in addition to its traditional themes, DAIS'05 especially encourages original unpublished papers addressing the following topics:
  • new/extended software architectures and frameworks for application reconfiguration and adaptation,
  • component frameworks (e.g. CORBA Components, EJB, .NET),
  • autonomous systems and architectures,
  • modelling, specifying, monitoring and management of context-aware and adaptive applications,
  • support for self-organisation and autonomic behaviour in new/existing distributed platforms (e.g. CORBA, J2EE, .NET, WebServices),
  • application infrastructures for Service-oriented Architectures and Web Services,
  • application environments that exploit characteristics of specific technologies (e.g. GRID computing, mobile and wireless),
  • issues in enterprise-wide and large-scale application integration,
  • model-driven development and testing,
  • application management and tuning,
  • development methodologies for ambient intelligence and sensor net applications,
  • semantic interoperability and semantic web services.
