DAIS 2009
9th IFIP international conference on Distributed Applications and Interoperable Systems

The event is organised by the Instituto de Telecomunicações

Lisbon, Portugal, 9-11 June, 2009

The 9th IFIP international conference on Distributed Applications and Interoperable Systems (DAIS) is part of the IFIP federated event on Distributed Computing Techniques (DisCoTec), together with 11th international conference on Coordination Models and Languages (COORDINATION) and the IFIP international conference on Formal Techniques for Distributed Systems (FMOODS/FORTE). The DisCoTec conferences jointly cover the complete spectrum of distributed computing subjects ranging from theoretical foundations to formal specification techniques to practical considerations. The event will be hosted by the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon.

Objectives and Scope

Established in 1997, the DAIS series of conferences aims to provide an integrated forum for research on all aspects of distributed and interoperable application systems. This includes methods, techniques, and system infrastructures needed to design, build, operate, evaluate, and manage modern distributed applications in any kind of application environments and scenarios. DAIS 2009 conference themes include but are not limited to:

  • Innovative distributed applications in the areas of
    • Cloud and enterprise computing
    • Very large scale and peer-to-peer computing
    • Mobile, context-aware, and pervasive computing
    • Sensor networks and ad-hoc networks
  • Models and concepts supporting distributed applications with respect to
    • Sustainability
    • Dependability and Resilience
    • Evolution
    • Energy efficiency
  • Middleware supporting distributed applications in the areas of
    • Autonomic and resilient systems
    • Mobile systems
    • Context- and QoS-aware systems
  • Evolution of service-oriented applications
    • Enterprise-wide and global integration
    • Semantic interoperability
    • Application management
  • Software engineering of distributed applications
    • Domain-specific modelling languages
    • Model-driven software development, testing, validation, and adaptation
    • Model evolution
    • Software architecture and patterns

Submission guidelines

The DAIS 2009 conference solicits high quality papers reporting research results and/or experience reports related to the themes above. All papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Contributions should be submitted electronically as postscript or PDF at the submission site, using the Springer LNCS style. Full technical papers should not exceed 14 pages in length while work-in-progress papers should not exceed 6 pages in length. Submission implies the acceptance that at least one author will attend the conference if the paper is accepted.

Each paper will undergo a thorough process of review and the conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Proceedings will be made available at the conference. More specific guidelines on the preparation of papers can be found on the conference website and the LNCS home page.
