5th IFIP International Conference on
Distributed Applications and Interoperable Systems (DAIS'05)
June 14-17, 2005 Athens, Greece
Call for Papers
To be held in conjunction with FMOODS'05
About the conference
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.
DAIS'05 is the fifth event in a series of successful international conferences, which started in 1997. DAIS'05 will provide a forum for researchers, application and platform service vendors and users, to review, discuss and learn about new approaches, concepts and experiences in the fields of distributed computing. DAIS'05 will include talks by invited speakers, full technical paper sessions, and work-in-progress presentations.
Conference themesIn 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adaptable distributed applications, and in addition to its traditional themes, DAIS'05 especially encourages original unpublished papers addressing the following topics:
The DAIS'2005 conference solicits high quality papers reporting research results and/or experience reports. All papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. Submissions will be 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. More specific guidelines on the preparation of papers can be found on the conference website.
Venue & Event
The 5th DAIS, organized by the Communications Network Laboratory of the University of Athens, will be held in Athens, Greece, colocated with the 7th IFIP International Conference on Formal Methods for Open Object-Based Distributed Systems, FMOODS'05. The accompagnying programme of shared satellite workshops - a call for workshop proposals is issued separately - will in particular include a Ph.D workshop giving young researchers an international platform to present their results.
