Component-based software is likely to be the most promising approach
to making distributed systems and Internet applications fit the
requirements of the new information-based work organization.
Component-based software encompasses many disciplines and application
domains, such as groupware, distributed object-oriented software
development, middleware, multimedia, CSCW, and distributed simulation.
The focus of this session is on component-based in special
coordination issues that arise in these systems. Models, languages,
and applications for both architectural and behavioral aspects of
systems are of special concern.

The purpose of this session is to bring together researchers and
practitioners working on component-based computing and coordination in
the diverse disciplines this field encompasses. The session serves as
a forum to enable exchange of experience between academia and
industry, as well as between researchers working on different aspects
of coordination and component-based computing.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

            In Coordination:
                        group communication and inter-agents cooperation protocols.
                        Theoretical aspects and foundations for coordination:
                        semantics, verification, component composition, dynamic
                        aspects of coordination.
                        Collaboration in self-organizing (SO) systems
                        Functional and non-functional properties of coordination.
                        Formal and semi-formal techniques for coordination
                        description and analysis.
                        Modeling of Information Systems (Groupware, Internet and
                        the Web, workflow manageqment, CSCW and multimedia applications)
                        Coordination, architectural, and interface definition
                        languages: implementation, interoperability, heterogeneity.
                        Agent-oriented languages: formal models for interacting
                        Coordination Patterns (Mobile Computing, Internet
                        Tools and environments for the development of coordinated
                        applications: integration within the development process.
                        Dynamic architecture management for multi-component
                        Industrial relevance of coordination and software
                        architectures: programming in the large, domain-specific
                        software architectures and coordination models, case
                        studies, performance.
                        Naturally-forming multi-agent systems (aka Swarms)

              In Component-based computing:
                        design methods for component frameworks
                        inter-operation among component frameworks (coordination)
                        functional and non-functional properties
                        that can or that cannot be established by a component system
                        architecture based on (tiered) component frameworks
                        use of selected component frameworks to reduce the set of
                        possible components in a market setting
                        component-oriented systems
                        domain-specific standards for component interoperability
                        dynamic changes in the configuration (set of components
                        in a system): how can components be added, replaced and
                        removed and how can other components reconfigure themselves
                        to cope with this
                        adaptation of components and composition of frameworks
                        programming language support for COC and component frameworks
                        in particular
                        performance/efficiency of component-oriented implementations
                        and effects of component frameworks introducing a level of
                        impact of businesses on components and vice versa, packaging
                        and distribution of components and component frameworks
                        criticism of the suggested component framework approach


Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft paper (5 pages)
to the session chair (address below) by the due date. Electronic
submissions are encouraged. Please send file in PDF or Postscript
format. The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be
limited to 7 IEEE style) pages. Papers must not have been previously
published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.

The first page of the draft paper should include: title of the paper,
name, affiliation, postal address, E-mail address, telephone number,
and Fax number for each author. The first page should also include the
name of the author who will be presenting the paper (if accepted) and
a maximum of 5 keywords.

Submissions should explicitly state their contribution and their
relevance to the themes of the session. Other criteria for selection
will be originality, significance, correctness, and clarity.

All accepted papers are expected to be presented at the conference.


Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and
soundness. Each paper will be refereed by at least three researchers
in the topical area. The Camera-Ready papers will be reviewed by a
reviewer to ensure expected quality and compliance with the reviewers


The conference proceedings will be published by CSREA Press (ISBN) in
hardcopy. It will be a multi-volume set. The proceedings will be
available at the conference. Some accepted papers will also be
considered for journal publication (soon after the conference). (In
addition to the hardcopy, it is also planned to publish the papers on
a CD.) All conference proceedings published by CSREA Press are
considered for inclusion in major database indexes that are designed
to provide easy access to the current literature of the sciences
(database examples: ISI, Thomson Scientific, IEE INSPEC, ...).
