Hard Deadline for Abstract Submission : May 30 2006

International Symposium on

Distributed Objects and Applications (DOA)

Montpellier, France, Oct 29 - Nov 3, 2006


Proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag

Some of the world's most important and critical software systems are 
based on distributed
object technologies. Distributed objects are at the heart of 
component-based systems,
service-oriented architectures and agent-based systems. When a phone 
call is made,
a financial transaction performed, or an order placed at an Internet 
Shop, chances are
that distributed objects are acting in the background.

Whether you are a researcher or practitioner who is building innovative 
distributed systems,
evaluating emerging technologies, and managing large-scale applications, 
you should consider
contributing a practice report or a research paper to this symposium to 
present, discuss and
obtain feedback for your ideas from other practitioners and researchers 
active in this area.

Although existing distribution technologies, such as CORBA, .NET and 
Java-based technologies
have been widely successful and have reached considerable maturity, they 
are still evolving
and serving as inspiration for emerging technologies and standards, such 
as Web Services and
Service-Oriented Architectures. Common to all these approaches are goals 
such as openness,
reliability, scalability, distribution transparency, security, ease of 
development, and support
for heterogeneity between applications and platforms. Also, of utmost 
importance today is the
ability to integrate distributed object systems with other technologies 
such as the web,
multimedia systems, databases, grid computing, peer-to-peer systems, and 
ubiquitous computing
environments. Along with the rapid evolution of these fields, continuous 
research and
development is required in object-based distribution technologies to 
advance the state of
the art and broaden the scope of the applicability.

Two Dimensions: Research & Practice

Research in distributed objects, components, services, and applications 
establishes new
principles that open the way to solutions that can meet the requirements 
of tomorrow's
applications. Conversely, practical experience in real-world projects 
drives this same
research by exposing new ideas and posing new types of problems to be 
solved. With
DOA 2006 we explicitly intend to provide a forum to help this mutual 
interaction occur,
and to trigger and foster it. Submissions are therefore welcomed along 
both these
dimensions: research (fundamentals, concepts, principles, evaluations, 
patterns, and algorithms)
and practice (applications, experience, case studies, and lessons). 
Contributions attempting to
cross over the gap between these two dimensions are particularly encouraged.

As we are fully aware of the differences in environment for research and 
development that exist
in academia and industry, submissions from each will be treated 
accordingly and judged by a peer
review not only for scientific rigor (in the case of "academic research" 
papers), but also for
originality and generality of applications and case studies (in the case 
of "case studies" papers).

DOA 2006 is a joint event with two other conferences organized within 
the global theme "Meaningful
internet systems and ubiquitous computing." This federated event 
co-locates three related and
complementary conferences in the areas of Intelligent Networked 
Information Systems, covering
key issues in data and web semantics (ODBASE'06), distributed objects, 
infrastructure and
enabling technology and Internet computing (DOA'06), and workflow, 
cooperation, and
interoperability (CoopIS'06), as required for the deployment of 
Internet- and intranet-based
systems in organizations and for e-business. More details about this 
federated event can be
found at http://www.cs.rmit.edu.au/fedconf .


The topics of this symposium include, but are not limited to:

     * Adaptive distributed object and component systems
     * Aspect-oriented approaches for augmenting distribution technologies
     * Application case studies of distribution technologies (e.g., 
based on CORBA, Java, .Net, and Web Services)
     * Applications and evaluations of the Model Driven Architecture 
     * Component-based software development
     * Design patterns for distributed systems
     * Distributed business objects and components
     * Distributed object infrastructures in resource-constrained devices
     * Grid applications that emphasise the importance of objects
     * Integrated development environments
     * Interoperability between object systems and complementary 
     * Middleware for distributed object computing
     * Migration of legacy distributed object systems to 
service-oriented architectures
     * Mobility in distributed systems
     * Performance analysis of distributed object computing systems
     * Real-time solutions for distributed objects
     * Scalability for distributed objects and object middleware
     * Security for distributed object systems
     * Self-organizing systems
     * Service-oriented architectures
     * Specification and enforcement of Quality of Service
     * Technologies for reliability and fault-tolerance
     * Testing and validation of distributed object systems
     * Ubiquitous computing and embedded systems
     * Web-based distributed objects


Abstract Submission (hard) Deadline 	May 30, 2006
Paper Submission Deadline	June 10, 2006
Acceptance Notification	August 5, 2006
Final Version Due	August 20, 2006

Papers submitted to DOA'06 must not have been accepted for publication 
elsewhere or be under
review for another workshop or conference.

All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, 
technical soundness, and clarity of expression. All papers will be 
refereed by at least
three members of the program committee, and at least two will be experts 
from industry in
the case of practice reports. All submissions must be in English. 
Submissions must not
exceed 18 pages in the final camera-ready paper style. Submissions must 
be laid out
according to the final camera-ready formatting instructions and must be 
submitted in PDF format.

The paper submission site is located at:


The final proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag as LNCS 
(Lecture Notes in Computer Science).
Author instructions can be found at:

Failure to comply with the above formatting instructions for submitted 
papers will lead to
the outright rejection of the paper without review.

Failure to commit to presentation at the conference automatically 
excludes a paper from the proceedings.
