                              6th IFIP WG 6.1
                       International Conference on
             Distributed Applications and Interoperable Systems

                                DAIS 2006

                  "From service-oriented architectures
                     to self-managing applications"

                             Bologna, Italy
                            June 13-16, 2006


                     To be held in conjunction with
                     FMOODS 2006  and  Coordination 2006


In recent years, distributed applications have indeed gained a
practical and widely-known footing in everyday computing. Use of new
communication technologies have brought up divergent application
areas, including mobile computing, inter-enterprise collaborations,
and ubiquitous services, just to name a few. New challenges include
the need for service-oriented architectures, autonomous and
self-managing systems, peer-to-peer systems, grid computing, sensor
networks, semantic enhancements, and adaptivity and dynamicity of
distribution constellations.

The DAIS conference series addresses all aspects of distributed
applications, including their design, implementation and operation,
the supporting middleware,
appropriate software engineering methodologies and tools, as well as
experimental studies and practice reports. This time we welcome in
particular contributions on architectures, models, technologies and
platforms for interoperable, scalable and adaptable systems that are
related to the latest trends towards service orientation and self-*

DAIS'06 is the sixth event in a series of successful international
conferences which started in 1997. It will provide a forum for
researchers, application and platform service vendors and users, to
review, discuss and learn about new approaches, trends, concepts and
experiences in the fields of distributed computing. Due to the success
of the predecessor conferences and the emergence of many interesting
and relevant new topics, DAIS has recently switched to a


DAIS'06 solicits high quality papers reporting research results and/or
experience reports. All papers must be original, unpublished, and not
submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere.

DAIS'06 especially encourages submissions addressing the following topics:

- novel and innovative applications in the areas of
  * enterprise computing
  * peer-to-peer systems and platforms
  * mobile computing
  * ubiquitous and pervasive computing
  * sensor networks

- distributed application infrastructures
  * service-oriented frameworks, SOA, Web Services
  * component frameworks, such as CORBA Components, J2EE, .NET
  * peer-to-peer computing
  * mobile and wireless computing
  * Grid computing

- software architectures supporting
  * autonomous systems
  * context-awareness
  * reconfiguration and adaptation
  * self-management
  * dependability

- application integration and interoperability
  * enterprise-wide and inter-enterprise integration
  * integration vs. interoperability
  * semantic interoperability and semantic web services

- life-cycle of distributed applications
  * modelling, specifying, monitoring and management
  * model-driven development and testing
  * tuning and re-engineering

- dependability of distributed applications
  * trust and security
  * safety
  * fault-tolerance
  * dependability coordination in SOA


Submissions must be done electronically as postscript or PDF, using
the Springer LNCS style.
DAIS'06 seeks:
- Full technical papers in no more than 14 pages,
- Work-in-progress papers, describing on-going work and interim
results, in no more than 6 pages.

Both categories of papers will be reviewed thoroughly by the DAIS'06
Program Committee.
Accepted papers will appear in the conference proceedings published by
Springer Verlag in the LNCS series.
More specific guidelines on the preparation of papers can be found on
the conference website.


DAIS'06 invites proposals for half-day or one-day workshops to be held
before the conference on subjects that are related to the conference
Workshops can further investigate relevant research topics in more
depth, or study application areas, or associate to existing or future
networks of experts in industry and academia.

Proposals should include the workshop title, the names and a brief
(200 word) biography for each organiser and an extended summary of the
workshop contents (approximately 1-2 pages).
The proposals will be evaluated by the DAIS'06 steering committee together with
invited experts and local organisers.

DAIS'06 will be held in the beautiful city of Bologna, Italy,
colocated with the 8th IFIP Formal Methods for Open Object-Based
Distributed Systems (FMOODS'06) and Coordination'06.
Attendants of DAIS'06 will have the opportunity to attend the sessions of the
two colocated conferences.

Bologna, a historical capital of culture, was founded by the Etruscans
in the VI century B.C. Bologna sits in the southern part of the
historically and gastronomically famous Po River plain, a natural
crossroads in northern Italy. Bologna's location was important not
only for the trading of goods but also for the exchanging of ideas and
the disseminating of culture. The Università di Bologna, founded in
1088 is the oldest university in the western world.

Bologna is famous for its porticoes. Dating back to the 12th century
the porticoes were used to enlarge houses to support the growing
University community. Today 350,000 people call Bologna their home, of
which 100,000 are students. Bologna, Italy's culinary capital, is also
famous for its food. Furthermore, Bologna is surrounded by the famous
food/wine regions of Parma, Modena, and Tuscany.

Bologna is very accessible, being served by an international airport
and one of the main hubs of the Italian railway system. Within easy
access is Florence (1 hour), Milan (1.5 hours), Venice (1.5 hours),
Rome (2.4 hours) and the ubiquitous Italian countryside of
Emilia-Romagna and Tuscany.
