CfP: COORDINATION 2000
CALL FOR PAPERS
Fourth International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages
11-13 September 2000
The need for increased programmer productivity and rapid development of
complex systems provide the pragmatic motivation for the development of
coordination languages and models. The intellectual excitement associated
with such endeavors is rooted in the decades-old desire to leverage off
increasingly higher levels of abstractions. Coordination-based methods
provide a clean separation between individual software components and their
interaction within the overall software organization. This separation makes
large applications more tractable, supports global analysis, and enhances
reuse of software.
Building on the success of the last three editions, this conference
provides a forum for the growing community of researchers interested in
models, languages, and implementation techniques for coordination.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
* Theoretical models and foundations for coordination: component
composition, concurrency, mobility, dynamic aspects of coordination.
* Specification, refinement, and analysis of software architectures:
patterns and styles, verification of functional and non-functional
* Coordination, architectural, and interface definition languages:
implementation, interoperability, heterogeneity.
* Agent-oriented languages: formal models for interacting agents.
* Dynamic software architectures: mobile agents, configuration,
* Tools and environments for the development of coordinated
applications: integration within the development process.
* Industrial relevance of coordination and software architectures:
programming in the large, domain-specific software architectures and
coordination models, case studies.
The conference proceedings will be published by Springer, in the LNCS
(Lecture Notes in Computer Science) series.
Proceedings of the previous editions of this conference are also available
in the LNCS series: volumes 1061, 1282 and 1594.
Authors are invited to submit full papers (in English, up to 6000 words)
electronically in PostScript or PDF using a two phase online submission
process. First, registration of the paper and an abstract of no more than
250 words must be complete before 7 April 2000. After successfully
completing this, you will receive a url through which to submit your
paper, due no later than 14 April 2000.
The authors' instructions provided by Springer should be followed. A link
can be found from the conference web page.
Simultaneous or similar submissions to other conferences or journals are
Submissions should explicitly state their contribution and their relevance
to the theme of the conference. Other criteria for selection will be
originality, significance, correctness, and clarity.
The conference will be held in Limassol, the most popular and lively city
of Cyprus, which is located on the southern coast of the island. The
conference venue will be a five-star hotel on the coast.
