[DL July 10th RDDS 2006] Workshop on Reliability in Decentralized Distributed Systems

(Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this message)  

**** Final Submission Deadline is July 10, 2006 **** 

International Workshop on Reliability in Decentralized Distributed Systems
(RDDS 2006)


Montpellier, France, Oct 29 - Nov 3, 2006
Proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag



Middleware has become a popular technology for building distributed systems
from tiny sensor networks to large scale peer-to-peer (P2P) networks.
Support such as asynchronous and multipoint communication is well suited for
constructing reactive distributed computing applications over wired and
wireless networks environments. While middleware infrastructures exhibit
attractive features from an application development perspective (e.g.,
portability, interoperability, adaptability etc.), they are often lacking in
robustness and reliability. Distributed systems become increasingly large
and complex, thereby compounding many reliability problems that necessitate
different strategies and solutions.

For example, in the inherently distributed nature of P2P networks, the most
common solution to reliability is to take advantage of redundancy. The same
task can be initially assigned to multiple peers. In file sharing
applications, data can be replicated across many peers. In messaging
applications, messages can be simultaneously sent along multiple paths.
Redundancy may not be appropriate, however, in resource-constrained
environments such as wireless ad hoc networks where more lightweight
alternatives are needed. Some systems even rely on autonomic management
technologies inspired by nature and biological organisms to cope with the
challenges of scale, complexity, heterogeneity and unpredictability. In any
case, the system model (e.g., communication, failures) and application
requirements are key factors in the design of reliably mechanisms.

Among different aspects of reliability issues, this workshop focuses on
reliability in decentralized distributed systems. While decentralized
architectures are gaining adoption is most application domains, there is
still some reluctance in deploying them in systems with high dependability
requirements. This has led, over the past few years, to several academic and
industrial research efforts aimed at correcting this deficiency. For the
most part, these research efforts have been independent of each other, and
have often focused on specific pieces of the dependability puzzle. Our aim,
in this Workshop, is to bring researchers and practitioners together, to
further our insights on reliable decentralized architectures and to
investigate collectively the challenges that remain.


The purpose of the RDDS 2006 workshop on Reliability in Distributed
Decentralized Systems is to bring together researchers from diverse
communities who are interested in building dependable reliable distributed
systems in decentralized form, to explore ways of making today's middleware
technologies more robust, and to discuss and exchange experimental or
theoretical results, novel design, work-in-progress, experience, case study,
and trend-setting ideas. We seek contributions from researchers of all
backgrounds, in particular peer-to-peer systems, messaging, ad hoc
communication, middleware and distributed systems, and autonomic management


The Workshop solicits contributions on topics related to, but not limited
to, the following: 

-  Reliable communication, architectures and algorithms 
-  Lessons learned in building/using dependable middleware: what works, what
-  Integrating dependable embedded and enterprise middleware systems 
-  Trade-offs in adding other "-ilities" (survivability, adaptability,
scalability, availability, mobility, security, real-time, etc.) to reliable
middleware infrastructures 
-  Integration of dependability into formal distributed object models 
-  Shaping/enhancing standards for reliable middleware 
-  Evaluating dependability for middleware applications 
-  Limitations of existing fault tolerance technologies in the context of
middleware applications

Special Issue on Analysis & Design of Cross-Layer Optimized Wireless Sensor Networks (deadline 1 October 2006)

Dear colleagues,

You are kindly invited to submit high-quality contributions according to below CFP for a special issue on sensor networks.

Kind regards,


EURASIP Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking

Special Issue on
Novel Techniques for Analysis & Design of Cross-Layer Optimized Wireless Sensor Networks

Sensor networks have been researched and deployed for decades; their wireless extension, however, has witnessed a tremendous upsurge in recent years. This is mainly attributed to the unprecedented operating conditions of wireless sensor networks (WSNs), i.e.
- a potentially enormous amount of sensor nodes,
- reliably operating under stringent energy constraints.

The virtually infinite degrees of freedom of wireless sensor networks have ignited intense research activities, which in turn led to thousands of publications, white papers and patents in less than a decade, with new contributions emerging on a daily basis. The rich mathematical and technical toolboxes already available from the design of wireless cellular and ad hoc systems clearly aided the birth of new ideas tailored to the problems in WSNs.

To date, the main problem in deploying WSNs is their dependence on limited battery power. A main design criterion is to extend the lifetime of the network without jeopardizing reliable and efficient communications from sensor nodes to other nodes or to data sinks. A prominent example of today’s non-optimized WSN deployment experiences is that the start-up alone costs the network half its battery power.

Optimizing every facet of the communication protocols is therefore vital and imperative. Such stringent design requirements can be met by a plethora of approaches, e.g. optimizing each layer of the protocol stack separately (traditional) or jointly (cross-layer), for each node separately (traditional) or for an ensemble of nodes (distributed and cooperative), etc. This has led to copious novel distributed signal processing algorithms, energy-efficient medium access control and fault-tolerant routing protocols, self-organizing and self-healing sensor network mechanisms, etc.

In the light of the above, the main purpose of this special issue is twofold:
- to obtain a coherent and concise technical synthesis from the abundance of recently emerged material in the area of WSNs, and
- to promote novel approaches in analyzing, designing and optimizing large-scale WSNs, preferably inspired by approaches from other disciplines, such as physics or biology.

Very few papers are currently available which synthesize the large amount of fairly dispersed technical contributions; a coherent exposure, also touching upon open research issues, will certainly be appreciated by the academic and industrial research community. We believe that novel approaches, potentially inspired by entirely disjoint disciplines, may help considerably in dealing with networks of thousands of nodes.

Topics of interest in the area of energy-constraint WSNs include, but are not limited to:
- network capacity w/out imperfections
- joint source and channel coding
- cooperative and distributed signal processing
- data fusion and data aggregation
- novel PHY, MAC and network paradigms
- cross-layer and cross-functionality design
- security, robustness, reliability
- self-healing, self-stabilization, self-organization
- applications, architectures and topologies
- (macroscopic) information flows
- physically and biologically inspired approaches

In recent years, some wireless technologies (e.g., WiFi, sensor networks) have matured to the point of finding wide acceptance in the real-world and leading to many new and interesting applications. At the same time, several new networking and radio technologies (e.g., dynamic spectrum access, UWB) are emerging to address the performance limitations of existing technologies and make wireless networking more ubiquitous. Realistic evaluation of such diverse set of technologies and their mutual interactions will play a major role in identifying the key performance bottlenecks, thus shape future advances in wireless technology. With this in mind, this workshop intends to bring together researchers working in the broad area of experimental wireless networking. This workshop will serve as a forum to share new ideas/experiences in all experimental aspects of wireless networks and systems, and facilitate discussions of key unresolved challenges in this area.

WiNTECH 2006 is soliciting proposals for research demonstrations of novel wireless testbed capabilities and measurement results. The session is intended to present the advances in tesbed and wireless characterizations and to foster discussions on future directions for wireless network evaluations. Demonstrations of works published earlier are also welcome.

WiNTECH 2006 is also seeking proposals for posters describing novel work in wireless network testbeds, measurements and characterizations. The posters may describe work in progress and offers an excellent opportunity
for feedback and discussions on early research. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

* Design and evaluation of wireless testbeds, prototypes and platforms
* Experiences/lessons from recent testbed design efforts
* Hybrid experimentation approaches combining use of multiple evaluation methodologies
* Integration of diverse and distributed testbed infrastructures
* Testbed management issues and monitoring support

The 4th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems
November 1-3, 2006
Boulder, Colorado, USA

SIGBED; with support from NSF.

The 4th ACM Conference on Embedded Networked Sensor Systems (SenSys)  
is a highly selective, single-track forum for the presentation of  
research results on systems issues in the area of embedded, networked 
sensors. Distributed systems based on networked sensors and actuators  
with embedded computation capabilities allow for an instrumentation  
of the physical world at an unprecedented scale and density, thus  
enabling a new generation of monitoring and control applications.  
This conference provides an ideal venue to address the research  
challenges facing the design, deployment, use, and fundamental limits  
of these systems. Sensor networks require contributions from many  
fields, from wireless communication and networking, embedded systems  
and hardware, distributed systems, data management, and applications,  
so we welcome cross-disciplinary work.

The poster session will provide a forum for researchers to showcase  
their work and obtain feedback on ongoing research from knowledgeable  
conference attendees. Areas of interest are the same as those listed  
in the technical call for papers. While the poster need not describe  
completed work, it should report on research for which at least  
preliminary results are available. We especially encourage  
submissions by students (that is, for which a student is the first  
author on the poster).


Poster proposals must be submitted as a single PDF file with no more  
than 3 pages. The first two pages should contain an abstract  
describing the research content of the poster, along with title,  
authors, institutional affiliations and contact information. The  
third page should contain a thumbnail draft of the poster's contents.
