Call for Papers

First International Workshop on Assurance in Distributed Systems and Networks (ADSN 2002) (see for detail

Vienna, Austria July 2, 2002

Sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on Distributed Processing. In cooperation with IEICE Technical Committee on Information Networks and IEICE Technical Committee on Fault Tolerant Systems.

This workshop will be held in conjunction with the 22nd International Conference on Distributed Computing Systems (ICDCS 2002) (see for detail

The objective of this Workshop is to provide an effective forum for original scientific and engineering advances in Assurance in Distributed Systems and Networks. Along with recent rapid growth of the Internet, autonomous decentralized systems are connected with each other. In these systems, heterogeneous requirements are independently generated and the requirements themselves are frequently changing. Assurance in these systems is defined as capability of adaptability to heterogeneous and changing requirements. The workshop is of interest in the sense that requirements for assurance in distributed systems and networks are increasing in the future Internet and technologies on assurance including integration of various technologies on real time, fault tolerance, autonomy, mobility and intelligence have high possibilities to cope with complex distributed systems and networks.

Topics of interest for this workshop include, but are not limited to:

Papers and Submissions

Papers must be written in English, and they have to be in Postscript, PDF, or Word format. The complete manuscript should be no more than 12 pages of double-spaced text with 11pt fonts. The following information must be provided on a cover sheet.
