CFP: Methods and Tools for Coordinating Concurrent, Distributed and Mobile Systems - MTCoord 2008

http://www.info.fundp.ac.be/MTCoord/

4th International Workshop on
                   Methods and Tools for Coordinating
               Concurrent, Distributed and Mobile Systems
                             (MTCoord'08)

                      June 7, 2008, Oslo, Norway
          Workshop affiliated to DisCoTec 08, June 4-6 2008


======================================================================


SCOPE

   Various classes of  computational models, languages, and formalisms
   have emerged with the  aim of providing high-level  descriptions of
   concurrent,  distributed,  and  mobile systems.   Typical  examples
   include so-called  coordination languages and  models (e.g.  Gamma,
   Linda,  Manifold,  Reo, Klaim,  Lime,  ...), concurrent  constraint
   languages (e.g.  cc languages,  Mozart, ...)  and  process algebras
   (e.g. CSP, CCS, pi-calculus, ...).

   These  models are based  on generative  communication via  a shared
   data  space or  on data  communication through  channels.   In both
   cases,  software components  are typically  conceived  in isolation
   assuming  that the  required  data will  eventually  be available.
   However,  making a  whole system  out of  these components  and, in
   particular, ensuring  that interactions occur properly  is far from
   being  obvious.

   The aim of the workshop is precisely to bring together researchers,
   working   in  different   communities  (coordination,  constraints,
   process algebras), on  methods  and tools  for the construction  of
   concurrent, distributed and mobile systems.

TOPICS OF INTEREST

   Special topics of interest are

   o Model checking techniques, in particular techniques for verifying
     coordinating properties  (including distributed and probabilistic
     ones)
   o Compositional and refinement-based methodologies

  However, other topics, as related to coordination,
  are also of interest, including:

   o Design of  high-level specifications,  eg based  on first-order,
     modal and temporal logics
   o Techniques for requirements capture and analysis
   o Theorem proving based methodologies
   o Debugging techniques
   o Abstract interpretation
   o Program analysis and transformation
   o Simulation and testing
   o Formal methods for security
   o Tools environments and architectures
   o Applications and case studies, in particular in web services
     and biology

INVITED SPEAKER

    Jean-Marie Jacquet, University of Namur, Belgium


SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

   Papers  describing original work are  solicited as contributions to
   MTCoord'08.  All    papers must be   unpublished  and not submitted
   simultaneously for publication elsewhere.  Submitted  papers should
   be  limited to  15  pages, preferrably  formatted  according to the
   Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science.

   They should  be submitted through the  conference management system
   that will be available from the workshop web site.

                http://www.info.fundp.ac.be/MTCoord/

PUBLICATION

 The  papers accepted  for  the symposium  will  be  available at  the
 workshop (a  University of Oslo,  Department  of informatics research
 report with ISBN and tech report no).

 Selected work will be published in  a volume of the Electronical Notes
 in Theoretical Computer Science.
