The Research Unit on Development and Control of Distributed Applications (ReDCAD) was created in October 2005 at the Department of Computer Engineering and Applied Mathematics of the National School of Engineers of Sfax. The main activities carried on by the members of this unit include: scientific research, training and advising of young researchers, participation in the socio-economic life, contribution to national and international research projects and organization of national and international scientific conferences and workshops. The research activities within the ReDCAD group belong to the field of adaptive distributed applications and are particularly interested in the development of models, approaches, techniques and tools which help to design and implement adaptive distributed applications. These approaches are applied to collaborative activities, distributed algorithms, and pervasive software. Different software technologies are addressed, like objects, agents, components, and web services.
