http://perso-info.enst-bretagne.fr/~beugnard/ecoop/WS-CADS-
CFP.html

Areas:

Main areas of interest include:

Security.
Partial Failure.
Guaranteeing Quality of Service.
Run-Time Evolution.

- and considered what tools an object system might supply to help address them - grouping objects into components, immutable objects, application-level protocols, reflection (both introspection and reification), and event-ordering.

Possible sub-topics include:

Communication abstractions from various origins including:
Architecture Description Languages (ADL), and especially connectors
UML collaboration as communication abstractions
UML collaboration refinement and implementation
Coordination techniques
Middleware services
Mediators
Glueware techniques
Communication abstraction in programming languages
Design Patterns for communication and distribution
Composition of protocols, customizable communication frameworks, (was micro-protocols)
Communication components

Security:
Authentication, authorization, privacy
Protection from malicious hackers
What can run where?

Application Services:
