-- First Call for Papers --
FOCLASA 2015: 14th International Workshop on Foundations of
Coordination Languages and Self-Adaptive Systems
5 September 2015, Madrid (Spain)
In conjunction with CONCUR 2015
FOCLASA 2015 is a workshop colocated with the 25th International
Conference on Concurrency Theory (CONCUR 2015 -
http://mafalda.fdi.ucm.es/concur2015). The goal of the FOCLASA workshop
is to put together researchers and practitioners to share and identify
common problems, and to devise general solutions in the context of
coordination languages and self-adaptive systems.
17 June 2015: Deadline for abstract submission
19 June 2015: Deadline for paper submission
20 July 2015: Notifications
3 August 2015: Final versions
5 September 2015: Workshop in Madrid
* Theoretical models and frameworks for component and service
  coordination, service composition, service adaptation and concurrent
  system modeling.
* Applications and usability studies for the aforementioned theoretical
  models, interaction and coordination challenges in decentralized
  self-adaptive systems and various application domains.
* Languages and specification protocols for component and service
  interaction, their semantics, expressiveness, validation and
  verification, type checking, static and dynamic analysis.
* "Software as a Service" models (e.g., cloud computing) and dynamic
  software architectures, such as self-adaptive and self-organizing systems.
* Service composition and coordination for Future Internet applications,
  service orchestration and choreographies, related theories and methods,
  and possible model-driven development approaches.
* Tools and environments for the development of concurrent and
  customizable self-monitoring, self-adaptive and self-organizing
* Algorithms, mathematical models and realization frameworks for
  quality-of-service observation, storage, history-based analysis in
  self-adaptive systems (queuing models, load balancing, fault-tolerance
  analysis, machine learning systems).
* Formal methods for self-adaptive systems, stochastic modeling and
  analysis, reasoning under uncertainty, run-time synthesis.
In particular, practice, experience and methodologies from the following areas are solicited as well:

* Cloud computing
* Service-oriented computing
* Component-based systems
* Grid computing
* Large-scale distributed systems
* Multi-agent systems
* Peer-to-peer systems
* Networked embedded systems
* Business process modeling
Survey works analysing and comparing literature on the topics of 
FOCLASA are also welcome.
Submissions must describe authors' original research work and their
results. Description of work-in-progress with concrete results is also
encouraged. The contributions should not exceed 15 pages in the EPTCS
style (http://style.eptcs.org/) and should be submitted as Portable
Document Format (PDF) files using the EasyChair submission site:
Submitting an abstract does not put any obligation on the authors to
submit a full paper. Abstracts without an accompanying full paper by 
the paper submission deadline are automatically considered withdrawn.
The authors are, however, encouraged to explicitly withdraw their
abstract, if they decide not to submit a full paper.

All submissions will be reviewed by an international program committee
who will make a selection among the submissions based on the novelty,
soundness and applicability of the presented ideas and results.

Concurrent submissions to WS-FM/BEAT (a CONCUR co-located event -
International Symposium on Web Services, Formal Methods and Behavioural Types -
http://www.projects.science.uu.nl/WSFM- BEAT2015/index.php) and FOCLASA are
allowed for those papers that may potentially enhance both venues. Authors of such
double submissions should identify them to the Program Chairs at the time of submission
(by choosing the "Regular paper submitted also to WS- FM/BEATΣ category in the
FOCLASA EasyChair site). Reviews may be shared between WS-FM/BEAT and FOCLASA.
Submissions accepted by WS-FM/BEAT will be considered automatically withdrawn from
FOCLASA. Concurrent submission to other venues (conferences, workshops or journal)
and submission of papers under consideration elsewhere are not allowed.

A printed version of the proceedings will be distributed among
participants during the workshop. The proceedings of the workshop will
be published as a separate volume. Participants will give a presentation
of their papers in twenty minutes, followed by a ten-minute round of
questions and discussion on participants' work. Following the tradition
of the past editions, we plan to have a special issue of an
international scientific journal devoted to FOCLASA 2015. Selected
participants will be invited to submit an extended version of their
papers after the workshop. These extended versions will be reviewed by
an international program committee, which will decide on their final
publication on the special issue. In the last few editions of FOCLASA, a
special issue of Science of Computer Programming has been dedicated to
this workshop.
