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 themes

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adaptable distributed applications, and in addition to its traditional themes, DAIS'05 especially encourages original unpublished papers addressing the following topics: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.

Submission guidelines

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.

DAIS2005 seeks:

  • Full technical papers in no more than 12 pages (approximately 6000 words);
  • Work-in-progress papers, describing on-going work and interim results, in no more than 5 pages.

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.
