******************************* Text of announcement

FIDJI 2003 International Workshop
on scientiFic engIneering of Distributed Java applIcations
November 27-28, 2003
Luxembourg, LUXEMBOURG


FIDJI 2003 is an international forum for researchers and practitioners
interested in the
advances in, and applications of, software engineering for the development of
distributed application focused on "Java-related" technologies. It provides a nice
opportunity to present and observe the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas.

All papers submitted to this workshop will be peer reviewed by at least two members
of the International Program Committee. Acceptance will be based primarily on
originality and contribution.

The proceedings of the workshop will be published in the Springer Verlag
Notes in Computer Science Series
The Lecture Notes in Computer Science Series are published as printed books and as
full-text electronic versions (see FIDJI 2002 edition at


FIDJI 2003 will be held in Luxembourg
at the Luxembourg University of Applied Sciences (


The FIDJI 2003 workshop provides an opportunity for academia to present
research and development activities and for industry to present experience in the
management of projects and in the use of development methodologies in the field of
distributed software systems.

The topics of interest in this conference will include, but are not limited to:

     * design of distributed Java applications
     * Java related technologies
     * software and system architecture engineering and development
     * development methodologies for UML
     * development of reliable distributed systems
     * component based development methodologies
     * management of evolutions/iterations in the analysis,
design,implementation and
       test phases
     * dependability support during system life cycle
     * managing inconsistencies during application development
     * atomicity and exception handling in system development
     * software architectures, frameworks and design patterns for
developing distributed
     * integration of formal techniques in the development process
     * formal analysis and grounding of modelling notation and techniques (e.g.,UML,
     * supporting security requirement of distributed application in the
     * refactoring methods
     * industrial and academic case studies
     * development and analysis tools

All submissions should be done electronically in Adobe Acrobat (.pdf),
(.ps), or MSWord (.doc) format. Do not send paper copies. Authors should
follow the
instructions on: The page
limit for
final papers is ten pages (5 000 words).

Please provide four key words to indicate the subject area of your paper. One of the
key words must be taken from the list of topics provided under scope
defined above.

The FIDJI 2003 Secretariat must receive your paper by September 1st, 2003.
Notification of acceptance will be sent via e-mail on October 15th, 2003. Registration
payments and final manuscripts are due by November 1st, 2003. Authors are expected
to strictly respect the deadlines for paper submission and registration.
Please note that
one of the authors has to present the paper at the workshop, and that for the final
submission one of the authors will need to sign a LNCS copyright form for the paper
( Not meeting these
will result in the exclusion of the paper from the proceedings. Detailed
instructions for
the final submission will be sent by e-mail. The formatting instructions
for final
manuscripts must be strictly followed.

Proceedings will be available at the conference and a post-workshop book

published in the Springer Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Sciences Series.


Two tutorials will be integrated in the program. Proposals for half-day
tutorials (three
hours plus breaks) should be submitted online by September 1st, 2003.
Tutorials are
to be submitted online via web site. A tutorial proposal should clearly
indicate the
topic, background knowledge expected of the participants, objectives, time allocations
for the major course topics, and the qualifications of the instructor(s).
