Call for Papers:

The design of application-oriented systems is driven by application-specific requirements that have a very large spectrum. Despite the adoption of uniform frameworks and system design methodologies supported by appropriate models and system specification languages, the deployment of application-oriented systems raises critical problems. Specific requirements in terms of scalability, real-time, security, performance, accuracy, distribution, and user interaction drive the design decisions and implementations.

This leads to the need for gathering application-specific knowledge and develop particular design and implementation skills that can be reused in developing similar systems.

The International Workshop on Application-oriented Systems, APSYS 2007, brings together practitioners and researchers for discussion and work on the emerging aspects pertaining to advanced techniques, platforms, paradigms, theories, and techniques for designing and deployment of application-oriented systems.
