Adaptive Distributed Computing Systems and Applications

special session in

The Twenty-Second International Conference on Software Engineering and Knowledge Engineering
(SEKE 2010)

Hotel Sofitel. San Francisco Bay, USA , July 1 July 3, 2010
Organized by Knowledge Systems Institute, U.S.A.


Computing systems have become increasingly complex with the ever growing communication infrastructure and large scale of operation, resulting in high complexity of their engineering, operation and maintenance. Adaptability in computing systems is one of the promising ways to deal with this complexity and address the associated challenges of building large scale systems. Distributed components can create applications that are inherently large scale and dynamic, requiring significant resource and process management to deal with their complexity. The distributed computing community has therefore been promoting efforts to incorporate autonomic and adaptive capabilities to enhance their applications and services so that the functions are self-managing, including computational, storage and more recently networking resources. The theme of this special track, Adaptive Distributed Computing Systems and Applications, is therefore concerned with the software engineering of dynamically reconfigurable parallel and distributed computing on a large number of computational nodes and storage systems.


This track aims to provide a platform with which emerging ideas and methodologies in the field of Adaptive Distributed Computing can converge to benefit all these areas of investigation. Such a platform will enable scientists, engineers and practitioners to exchange research ideas related to the design, analysis, implementation, and validation of dynamically reconfigurable computing infrastructures and applications.


This special track seeks original research papers and experience reports on the integration of all aspects of adaptive distributed computing. In particular the focus will be on techniques for enabling runtime reconfiguration of distributed applications. The topics for submissions include, but are not limited to, the following:


Papers must be written in English. An electronic version (Postscript, PDF, or MS Word format) of the full paper should be submitted using the following URL: Please use Internet Explorer as the browser, and select the paper type "Special Session: Adaptive Distributed Computing Systems and Applications - Sadjadi and Ezenwoye". Manuscript must include a 200-word abstract and no more than 6 pages of IEEE Computer Society Two-Column Format for Proceedings (include figures and references).
