Are you building applications using distributed object computing
Are you doing research in fundamental technology, methodology
or new tools for DOC?
Are you using existing distributed object systems?

Consider contributing a practice report or a research paper to this
innovative event to present, discuss and obtain feedback for your
ideas among other practitioners and researchers active in the same

There is increasing agreement among IT researchers and practitioners
about the importance and potential of distributed object systems and
the advances in this area made in recent years. These systems offer
many promises for use in various applications, including
telecommunications, banking applications, embedded systems, and many
other domains. DOC systems offer practical, real-life production
solutions to technical problems, including interoperability across
different hardware, software and database platforms. There are several
widely used and emerging distributed object computing paradigms,
including CORBA, COM, SOAP, .NET, and Java Beans.

The future success of DOC systems will not only be dependent on how
the basic requirements (to develop open, reliable and scalable
distributed and heterogeneous applications and platforms) are met but
also how the underlying distributed object technology can be
integrated with existing complementary technologies and applications,
such as WWW, multimedia and databases. The reengineering of legacy
systems may substantially benefit from the use of DOC, e.g., when
turning them into data warehouses. Further standardization of
distributed object concepts will very likely unlock many new areas of
application still.

TWO DIMENSIONS: Research & Practice

As research in DOC establishes new principles, enhancing our
understanding of the fundamental issues involved, and opening the way
to new tools and methodologies for DOC, so conversely practical
experience in real-life DOC projects drives the avenues of this same
research by exposing new ideas and posing new types of problems to be
solved. With the DOA Symposium we explicitly intend to provide a forum
to help this mutual interaction occur, and to trigger and foster it.
Submissions can be entered along both these dimensions: research
(theory, fundamentals, principles of DOC) and practice (applications,
experience, pragmatics of DOC). Contributions attempting to cross over
the gap between these two dimensions will, of course, be especially

As we are fully aware of the differences in environment for research
and development that exist in academia and industry, submissions from
each will be treated accordingly and judged by a peer review not only
for scientific rigor (in the case of "academic research" papers) but
for originality and generality of application (in the case of "case
studies" papers). Papers of each type will be presented in parallel
tracks at the Symposium, but with maximal opportunity for interaction
for researchers and developers working on related topics.

To summarize, during the DOA'2002 Symposium we therefore want
attendees to be able to evaluate existing ORB middleware products; to
analyze, and propose solutions to major limitations of existing
products; and to indicate promising future research directions for
distributed objects. We are particularly interested in the evaluation
of existing DOC systems and how they are used to design and to
implement large scale industrial distributed applications. We are
seeking theoretical as well as practical papers addressing innovative
issues related to distributed objects.

DOA'2002 Symposium is a joint event with two other conferences
organized within the global theme "On the Move to Meaningful Internet
Systems and Ubiquitous Computing 2002". This federated event
co-locates three related and complementary successful conferences in
the areas of Intelligent Networked Information Systems, covering key
issues in Data and Web Semantics (ODBASE'02), Distributed Objects,
Infrastructure and Enabling Technology and Internet Computing
(DOA'02), and Workflow, Cooperation, and Interoperability (CoopIS'02),
as required for the deployment of Internet- and Intranet-based systems
in organizations and for e-business. All three events will be hosted
in Irvine during the week October 28 - November 1, 2002. More details
about this federated event can be found at


The topics of this symposium include, but are not limited to:
   o Critique of the distributed object paradigm
   o Distributed business objects
   o Distributed and mobile agents
   o Design patterns for distributed object design
   o Database services, in particular persistency, transaction query
     and replication services
   o Integration of distributed object and Web technologies
   o Interoperability-supporting environments
   o Design of CORBA, DCOM, .Net, and Java-based broker applications
   o Security, including authorisation and authentication
   o Specification and enforcement of Quality of Service (QoS)
   o Component-based software development an enterprise based
     component architectures
   o Management of distributed object systems
   o Applications of distributed middleware technolgies to
     collaborative commerce
   o Reliable and fault tolerant middlewares
   o Real-time/Reflective middlewares
   o Middlewares for peer-to-peer platforms
   o Middleware support for mobility
   o Distributed objects in pervasive applications
   o Web Services and distributed objects, including SOAP
     interoperability and service discovery
   o Reports on Best Practice


   Paper Submission Deadline:      May 31, 2002
   Acceptance Notification:        July 15, 2002
   Final Version Due:              August 20, 2002
   Symposium:                      October 28 - November 1, 2002


    All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on
    originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of
    expression. Submissions should be clearly labeled "Research",
    "Practice" or "PC discretion". All papers will be refereed by at
    least three members of the program committee, and at least two
    will be experts from industry in the case of practice reports.
    All submissions must be in English. Research submissions must not
    exceed 8,000 words. Practice reports must not exceed 5,000 words.
    Submissions can either be in Postscript, MS Word, or Pdf format
    and should be done through the following URL


     The final proceedings will be published by IEEE Press. Failure to
     commit to presentation at the conference automatically excludes a
     paper from the proceedings.
