3nd International Workshop on
Foundations of Coordination Languages and
August 30, 2004, London, United Kingdom
Workshop affiliated to CONCUR'2004, August 30 - September 3 2004.
SCOPE AND TOPICS
Modern information systems rely more and more on combining
concurrent, distributed, mobile and heterogenous components. This
move from old systems, typically conceived in isolation, induces
the need for new languages and software architectures. In
particular, coordination languages have been proposed to cleanly
separate computational aspects and communication. On the other
hand, software architects face the problem of specifying and
reasoning on non-functional requirements. All these issues are
widely perceived as fundamental to improve software productivity,
enhance maintainability, advocate modularity, promote reusability,
and lead to systems more tractable and more amenable to
verification and global analysis.
The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers working
on the foundations of component-based computing, coordination, and
software architectures. Topics of interest include (but are not
o Theoretical models for coordination (component composition,
concurrency, dynamic aspects of coordination, semantics,
o Specification, refinement, and analysis of software archi-
tectures (patterns and styles, verification of functional and
o Coordination, architectural, and interface description languages
(implementation, interoperability, heterogeneity);
o Agent-oriented languages (formal models for interacting agents);
o Dynamic software architectures (mobile agents, configuration,
o Modeling of information systems (groupware, internet and
the web, workflow management, CSCW and multimedia applications)
o Coordination patterns (mobile computing, internet computing);
o Tools and environments for the development of coordinated
o Methodologies for validating and certifying software compositions
Papers describing original work are solicited as contributions to
Foclasa. Submitted papers should be limited to 6 000 words,
preferrably formatted according to the Electronical Notes in
Theoretical Computer Science.
They should be emailed as PostScript (PS) or Portable Document
Format (PDF) files to jmj at info.fundp.ac.be.
Following the previous edition, the proceedings will be published
as a volume of the Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer
