Dependable and Adaptive Distributed Systems2nd DADS Track of the
22nd ACM Symposium on Applied Computing
March 14, 2007
Seoul National University in Seoul and
Suwon University in Gyeonggi-do
Previous year: 1st DADS 2006
Applied Computing has been a primary gathering forum for applied computer scientists, computer engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around the world. SAC 2007 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing, and is hosted by the Seoul National University in Seoul and the Suwon University in Gyeonggi-do.
Track Overview - Track Committee - Sessions and Papers
Track OverviewDistributed systems, services and databases are at the core of the information society and increasingly pervade many aspects of our daily lives. While mobility and pervasiveness require support for systems that adapt themselves to changing environments, the middleware infrastructures become more and more heterogeneous and complex. In addition, we can see an increasing demand for dependability, taking into account the software as well as the surrounding environment.
Generally, adaptiveness can either satisfy a change in user requirements or seek to fulfill the same requirements in a changing system context and environment. In particular, adaptation is also a means to achieve dependability in a computing infrastructure with dynamically varying structure and properties. Dependability and adaptiveness can not simply be added to a system like a plug-in module. Therefore, the focus of this track is on middleware support for dependability and adaptiveness of distributed software systems and service environments of any kind and on methods on designing and engineering them.
This is the second year for the DADS track and 30 submitted papers show the importance of the topic. 32 reviewers performed our double-blind review process, where each paper has been reviewed by at least three reviewers. Finally, 9 regular papers have been accepted resulting in an acceptance rate of 30%. Three more submissions have been accepted as poster papers.

Session and PapersThe DADS track provides a forum for scientists and engineers in academia and industry for their latest research findings on selected topics in dependable and adaptive distributed systems and complex services. The track is structured in two sessions:
1. Self-Organizing Broker Topologies for Publish/Subscribe Systems:
2. An Adaptive Randomized Search Protocol in Peer-to-peer Systems:
3. Square: Scalable Quorum-Based Atomic Memory with Local Reconfiguration:
5. k-Bound GSI: A Flexible Database Replication Protocol:
6. Evaluation of the QoS of Crash-Recovery Failure Detection:
7. A new adaptive accrual failure detector for dependable distributed systems:
8. A Metadata-Based Architectural Model for Dynamically Resilient Systems:
9. Dynamic Adaptation of CORBA Component-Based Applications:
