WOSSA'2004: Call for Papers

Workshop on Object Systems and Software Architectures

Victor Harbor, South Australia, January 11th-14th

WOSSA'2004 brings research students from across Australia together with leading international and national researchers in the fields of object systems and software architectures. These research themes investigate technology for the construction of large scale distributed software systems of tomorrow - systems that must meet systemic challenges such as longevity, compliance and evolvability, in addition to traditional requirements such as functionality and correctness.

At WOSSA, postgraduate and post-doctoral reseachers will participate in lively interaction with leading national and international researchers through discussion, presentation and constructive feedback. WOSSA provides a unique opportunity in Australia for postgraduates and early career researchers to present early work and preliminary results, and helps form the basis for potential international collaboration in future years.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Compliant Architectures
  • Persistent Systems
  • Memory Management
  • Distributed Systems
  • Distributed Object Systems
  • Operating Systems

WOSSA will involve a combination of paper presentation sessions and in-depth discussion sessions, presenting current research. Places at the workshop will be limited. We encourage supervisors to accompany their students in order to provide the benefit of their experience to the discussion sessions and debates.

We welcome submission reporting ongoing work and preliminary results in the areas of object systems and software architectures. We are seeking submissions that are applied or conceptual in nature, rather than purely theoretical work.Submissions must have a postgraduate or postdoctoral researcher as the primary author. In addition, accepted submissions must be presented by the primary author.

Proceedings will be published as a technical report at the University of Adelaide. An award will be provided for the best paper.

Please email papers in .ps or .pdf format by 31st October 2003 to Papers must be no more than 3,000 words (or 6 pages, .10 font) in length.
