Second Call for Papers
1st International Workshop on
Methods and Tools for Coordinating
Concurrent, Distributed and Mobile Systems
April 23, 2005, Namur, Belgium
Workshop affiliated to Coordination'2005, April 20 - 23 2005
o March 1, 2005: Abstract submission deadline.
o March 8, 2005: Paper Submission deadline.
o April 1, 2005: Notification of acceptance.
o April 10, 2005: Final version.
o April 23, 2005: Meeting Date.
Various classes of computational models, languages, and formalisms
have emerged in 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
Topics of interest include but are not limited to
o Model checking techniques, in particular parallel, distributed
and probabilistic ones
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 Compositional and refinement-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
Papers describing original work are solicited as contributions to
MTCoord 2005. Submitted papers should be limited to 6 000 words,
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
Selected work will be published in a volume of the Electronical
Notes in Theoretical Computer Science.
The workshop will be held in Namur in April 23 2005. It is a
satellite workshop of Coordination 2005. For venue and
