CALL FOR PAPERS
Coordination and Component-Oriented Computing
(Languages, Models, Systems)
a special session of
June 24 - 27, 2002
Monte Carlo Resort, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
Feb. 22, 2002 (Friday): Draft papers (about 5 pages) due
March 21, 2002 (Thursday): Notification of acceptance
April 22, 2002 (Monday): Camera-Ready papers & Prereg. due
June 24-27, 2002: PDPTA'02 International Conference
SCOPE OF THE SESSION:
Component-based software is likely to be the most promising approach
to making distributed systems and Internet applications fit the
requirements of the new information-based work organization.
Component-based software encompasses many disciplines and application
domains, such as groupware, distributed object-oriented software
development, middleware, multimedia, CSCW, and distributed simulation.
The focus of this session is on component-based in special
coordination issues that arise in these systems. Models, languages,
and applications for both architectural and behavioral aspects of
systems are of special concern.
The purpose of this session is to bring together researchers and
practitioners working on component-based computing and coordination in
the diverse disciplines this field encompasses. The session serves as
a forum to enable exchange of experience between academia and
industry, as well as between researchers working on different aspects
of coordination and component-based computing.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* In Coordination:
o group communication and inter-agents cooperation protocols.
o Theoretical aspects and foundations for coordination:
semantics, verification, component composition, dynamic
aspects of coordination.
o Functional and non-functional properties of coordination.
o Formal and semi-formal techniques for coordination
description and analysis.
o Modeling of Information Systems (Groupware, Internet and
the Web, workflow management, CSCW and multimedia
o Coordination, architectural, and interface definition
languages: implementation, interoperability, heterogeneity.
o Agent-oriented languages: formal models for interacting
o Coordination Patterns (Mobile Computing, Internet
o Tools and environments for the development of coordinated
applications: integration within the development process.
o Dynamic architecture management for multi-component
o Industrial relevance of coordination and software
architectures: programming in the large, domain-specific
software architectures and coordination models, case
* In Component-based computing:
o design methods for component frameworks
o interoperation among component frameworks (coordination)
o functional and non-functional properties
that can or that cannot be established by a component system
architecture based on (tiered) component frameworks
o use of selected component frameworks to reduce the set of
possible components in a market setting
o component-oriented systems
o domain-specific standards for component interoperability
o dynamic changes in the configuration (set of components
in a system): how can components be added, replaced and
removed and how can other components reconfigure themselves
to cope with this
o adaptation of components and composition of frameworks
o programming language support for COC and component frameworks
o performance/efficiency of component-oriented implementations
and effects of component frameworks introducing a level of
o impact of businesses on components and vice versa, packaging
and distribution of components and component frameworks
o criticism of the suggested component framework approach
SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:
Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft paper (5 pages)
to one of the session chairs (addresses below) by the due date.
Electronic submissions are encouraged. Please send file in PDF or
PostScript format. The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted)
will be limited to 7 pages. Papers must not have been previously
published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.
The first page of the draft paper should include: title of the paper,
name, affiliation, postal address, E-mail address, telephone number,
and Fax number for each author. The first page should also include the
name of the author who will be presenting the paper (if accepted) and
a maximum of 5 keywords.
Submissions should explicitly state their contribution and their
relevance to the themes of the session. Other criteria for selection
will be originality, significance, correctness, and clarity.
All accepted papers are expected to be presented at the conference.
Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and
soundness. Each paper will be refereed by at least three researchers
in the topical area. The Camera-Ready papers will be reviewed by a
reviewer to ensure expected quality and compliance with the reviewers
The conference proceedings will be published by CSREA Press (ISBN). It
will be a multi-volume set. The proceedings will be available at the
conference. Some accepted papers will also be considered for journal
publication (soon after the conference).
