DESCRIPTION

ACP4IS provides a highly interactive forum for researchers and
developers to discuss the application of and relationships between
aspects, components, and patterns within modern "systems
infrastructure" software: e.g., application servers, middleware,
virtual machines, compilers, operating systems, embedded systems,
web services and other software that provides general services
for higher-level applications.

Topics of interest include:

- Approaches that combine or relate component-, pattern-, and
   aspect-based techniques

- Aspect languages for infrastructure software

- Container-, ORB-, and system-based separation of concerns

- Support for Web services in middleware infrastructure

- Architectural techniques for particular system concerns, e.g.,
   security, static and dynamic optimization

- Aspect mining within infrastructure software

- Application- or domain-specific optimization of systems

- Reasoning and optimization across architecture layers

- Resource consumption of AOP approaches

- Timing behavior of AO-code

- Aspects and patterns for real-time and embedded systems

- Dimensions of infrastructure software quality including
   comprehensibility, configurability, reliability, evolvability,
   scalability

- Quantitative and qualitative evaluations


ELECTRONIC SUBMISSION

Invitation to the workshop will be based on accepted position and
technical papers, 3-6 pages in length.  Papers should be
electronically submitted as PDF documents in ACM format through
the ACP4IS 2008 online submission system.  Paper submissions will be
reviewed by the workshop program committee and designated reviewers.
Papers will be evaluated based on technical quality, originality,
relevance, and presentation.


PUBLICATION OF PAPERS

Accepted papers will be published as workshop proceedings in the ACM
digital library. Excellent contributions will additionally be selected
for publication in a special ACP4IS journal issue (IEE) planned for
end of 2008.
