CDS '07 is held in conjunction with ICDCS 2007
The First IEEE International Workshop on Cooperative Distributed Systems (CDS)

Most real world systems and applications are inherently distributed. Distributed systems provide extensibility, protection against single failures, and an adequate architecture to cope with spatially distributed real-world applications. These systems are widely used in distributed databases, telecommunication, groupware, security, monitoring habitat and education. The challenge in developing cooperative distributed systems (CDS) is in modelling and engineering the interactions between the entities of the system.

The aim of this workshop is to provide a forum for academic and industry professionals to discuss recent progress and challenges in the area of cooperative distributed systems. We encourage contributions that describe innovative work and results on CDS. The topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  Adaptive agents for Autonomic Computing

  Agent-based architectures for CDSs

  Agent-based Infrastructure for Autonomic Computing

  Cooperative Agents Design Issues

  Cooperation Strategies

  Coordination Models

  Grid Systems Computing

  Intelligent Systems for CDSs

  Learning Agents in CDSs

  Mobile and Pervasive Collaboration Systems

  Multi-agent Systems Design and Architectures

  Peer-to-Peer Systems and Applications

  Security in CDSs

  Wired and Wireless Distributed Systems

  Workload Characterization for CDSs
