The last decade has seen the emergence of a class of languages and models
variously termed "coordination languages", "configuration languages", and
"architectural description languages". These formalisms provide a clean
separation between individual software components and their interaction in the
overall software organisation. This separation makes large applications more
tractable, supports global analysis, and enhances reuse of software.
Building on the success of COORDINATION'96 in Cesena, COORDINATION'97 will
provide a forum for this rapidly growing community working in areas ranging from
theoretical models and foundations, to languages and implementation techniques.
The proceedings of COORDINATION'97 will be published in the LNCS series of
Springer Verlag as volumn 1282.
Topics and Program
Topics of the conference include:
- Theoretical models and foundations for coordination: component
composition; concurrency; dynamic aspects of coordination.
- Specification, refinement and analysis of software architectures;
verification of functional and non-functional properties.
- Coordination, software architecture, and interface definition languages;
implementation issues; interoperability and heterogeneity.
- Tools and environments for the development of coordinated applications;
integration within the development process; maintenance, evolution and reuse
of software architectures; patterns and architecture styles; knowledge-based
techniques for software architectures; integration tests.
- Industrial relevance of coordination and software architectures;
programming in the large; domain-specific software architectures and
coordination models; case studies.
The expired call for
papers is also available in Postscript. In the main
programme of the conference, a case study session will be organised to bring
together practitioners and researchers in the emerging area of coordination
models and languages.
See the preliminary
program for details on presentations.
Registration and local infomation
We advise you very urgently to make
hotel reservations immediately. COORDINATION'97 unfortunalty overlaps with a
large international fair in consumer electronics, the Internationale Funkausstellung in Berlin.
During that time Berlin hotels are completly overbooked and you run into the
real danger of having to stay far away from the Berlin center.
