WOSSA'2006: Call for Papers

Second International Workshop on Object Systems and Software Architectures

Deadline Extended - 14th November

Victor Harbor, South Australia, January 30th - February 2nd

WOSSA'2006 brings research students from across Australia together with leading international and national researchers in the fields of object systems, operating systems and software architectures. These research themes investigate technology for the construction of large scale 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:

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

Authors should submit an extended abstract of no more than 2,000 words (or 4 pages, .10 font) in length. We particularly welcome submissions reporting ongoing work and preliminary results. 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 14th November 2005 to
