This work presents the research results of students of the Graduiertenkolleg "Communication-Based Systems" to an international community. To stimulate the scientific discussion, experts have been invited to give their views on the following research areas: formal specification and mathematical foundations of distributed systems using process algebra, graph transformations, process calculi and temporal logics; performance evaluation, dependability modelling and analysis of real-time systems with different kinds of timed Petri-nets; specification and analysis of communication protocols; reliability, security and dependability in distributed systems; object orientation in distributed systems architecture; software development and concepts for distributed applications; computer network architecture and management; and language concepts for distributed systems.
