Becoming commonplace is a technology’s ultimate proof of success. TOOLS Europe 2012 will celebrate the “triumph of objects” by welcoming researchers and practitioners who develop and use object-oriented techniques, models, components and patterns as enabling technologies in diverse domains. Started in 1989, the TOOLS conference series has played a major role in the development of object technology and, with its emphasis on practically useful results, has contributed to making it mainstream and ubiquitous.

TOOLS Europe encourages contributions on all aspects of object technology and related fields. In particular, every topic in advanced software technology falls within the scope of TOOLS. Contributions demonstrating practical applications backed up by formal analysis and thorough experimental evaluation are particularly welcome.

Topics

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Object technology, programming techniques, languages, tools
Language implementation techniques, compilers, run-time systems
Distributed and concurrent object systems, multicore programming
Patterns, pattern languages and tool support for patterns
Program verification and analysis techniques
Trusted, reliable and secure components
Testing of object-oriented systems
Component-based programming, modeling, tools
Model-driven development
Empirical studies on programming models and techniques
Domain specific languages and language design
Aspect-oriented programming and modeling

5- ICECCS 2012

July 18-20, 2012
www.iceccs.org

17th Annual IEEE International Conference on the Engineering of Complex Computer Systems (ICECCS) sponsored by the IEEE Technical Committee on Complexity in Computing (TCCX) Organized under the guidance of the CESAMES non profit organization
Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris – FRANCE
Submission deadline: February 15, 2012

The success of key human activities ranging from research and business to everyday services relies on the use of ever more sophisticated, feature-rich and complex computer systems. These complex computer systems are regularly required to accomplish more, faster and on a broader scale, to adapt dynamically to changing workloads, scenarios and objectives, and to achieve guaranteed levels of performance and dependability. Satisfying
such demanding requirements in the presence of the variability, heterogeneity and non-linear behaviour that characterise complex computer systems poses numerous challenges to both their developers and their users.

The aim of the conference is to bring together researchers, practitioners and leading experts from academia and industry, to advance the state of the art in the specification, development, validation and verification, and management of complex computer systems.

Scope and topics:

Authors are invited to submit papers describing original, unpublished research results, case studies and tools. Additionally, submissions of poster papers are sought for two separate poster sessions: an “ongoing research” poster session, and a “PhD research” poster session. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following aspects of complex computer systems:

– Requirement specification and analysis
– Verification and validation
– Model-driven development
– Reverse engineering and refactoring
– Achitecture software
– Big Data Management
– Sensor Networks and Ubiquitous Computing
– Design by contract
– Agile methods
– Safety-critical & fault-tolerant architectures
– Adaptive, self-managing and multi-agent systems
– Real-time, hybrid and embedded systems
– Systems of systems
– Tools and tool integration
– Industrial case studies

Different kinds of contributions are sought, including novel research, lessons learned, experience reports, and discussions of practical problems faced by industry and user domains. The ultimate goal is to build a rich and comprehensive conference program that can fit the interests and needs of different classes of attendees: professionals, researchers, managers, and students. A program goal is to organize several sessions that include both academic and industrial papers on a given topic, and culminate with panels to discuss relationships between industrial and academic research.

Full papers are divided into two categories: Technical Papers and Experience Reports. The papers submitted to both categories will be reviewed by program committee members, and papers accepted in either category will be published in the conference proceedings. Technical papers should describe original research, and experience reports should present practical projects carried out in industry, and reflect on the lessons learnt from them.

Poster paper submissions should specify in their abstract whether they describe ongoing or PhD research. Both types of poster papers will be reviewed by program committee members, and accepted posters will be published in the conference proceeding.

See the submission guidelines on the conference web site.

Important Dates:

Submission of titles and abstracts            February 1, 2012
Submission of all papers                      February 15, 2012
Notification of acceptance                    March 30, 2012

6- MATHEURISTICS’ 2012

Angra dos Reis, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
September 16-21, 2012

The Matheuristics workshop series is a primary forum for research on the exploitation of mathematical programming techniques in a (meta)heuristic framework, granting to mathematical programming approaches the robustness and efficiency which characterize metaheuristics, or on the exploitation of the mathematical programming model formulation in the customization of a metaheuristic for specific or general problems.

The next edition of the Matheuristics workshop series on model-based metaheuristics will be held at a beach resort in Angra dos Reis, Brazil, from September 16 to 21, 2012. Angra dos Reis is located about 150 kms from Rio de Janeiro.

Matheuristics’2012 aims at collecting contributions that define the state of the art for the computational effectiveness and efficiency or the theoretical properties of algorithms and codes integrating metaheuristics and MIP strategies and software.

The main deadlines for the conference are:
– Submissions: April 30, 2012
– Notification of acceptance: June 15, 2012
– Camera-ready papers: July 15, 2012
– Workshop starts: September 16, 2012

See the conference website at http://www.ic.uff.br/matheuristics2012/
for additional details. You may also spend a few seconds to make your pre-registration to be posted with news about Matheuristics’2012.
