Call for Papers


Topics of Interest

Submissions are invited in the general area of programming language approaches to concurrency, communication and distribution, ranging from foundational issues, through language implementations, to applications and case studies. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Design and implementation of programming languages with first class support for concurrency and communication
  • Behavioural types, including session types
  • Concurrent data types, objects and actors
  • Verification and program analysis methods for concurrent and distributed software
  • Runtime systems for scalable management of concurrency and resource allocation
  • High-level programming abstractions addressing security concerns in concurrent and distributed programming
  • Multi- and many-core programming models, including methods for harnessing GPUs and other accelerators
  • Memory models for concurrent programming on relaxed-memory architectures
  • Integration of sequential and concurrent programming techniques
  • Use of message passing in systems software
  • Interface languages for communication and distribution
  • Novel programming methodologies for sensor networks
  • Programming language approaches to web services
  • Concurrency and communication in event processing and business process management

Papers are welcome which present novel and valuable ideas as well as experiences.
