2nd International Working Conference on
Component Deployment (CD 2004)

May 20-21, 2004

e-Science Institute, Edinburgh, UK

What do we do with components after they have been built? How do we deploy them into their execution environment? How can we evolve them once they have been deployed? While several tools exist to support deployment, the underlying principles are only beginning to emerge. Therefore, papers relating theory to practice are particularly welcome. CD 2004 will bring together researchers and practitioners with the goal of developing a better understanding of how deployment takes place in the wider context. The CD 2004 Working Conference will encompass all issues related to component deployment, including:
  • adaptation, customisation, and repair
  • configuration languages and tools
  • component assembly and packaging
  • middleware interaction and support
  • accommodating legacy code
  • patterns for deployment
  • trust and security
  • dependability and survivability
  • contracts and service-level agreements
  • QoS-aware deployment
  • distribution formats and protocols
  • performance and quality issues
  • deployment in virtual organizations and computational grids
  • case studies and experience reports

Only original submissions will be considered; the submission, or any substantially similar version, must not have been published, accepted for publication, or submitted for publication elsewhere. Authors of accepted papers must sign a copyright release form before publication.

All submissions must be electronic, produced according to the LNCS format, and not exceed 15 pages in length. Submissions by Cyberchair. Authors without web access must make advance arrangements with the co-chairs at least one week before the deadline. Submissions will be peer reviewed by an international programme committee. We intend to publish proceedings in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series of Springer-Verlag, both in book and in electronic versions, following the tradition established for CD 2002 (LNCS 2370).

The conference will be heavily sponsored by the UK e-Science Programme. We are aiming for a very low registration fee to encourage wide participation, in particular of young researchers. We explicitly encourage PhD students to submit papers about their research. We have six bursaries to pay for travel and subsistence. Priority will be given to support PhD students with these bursaries.
