     ------            Extended Deadlines            ------

           15th International Workshop on Foundations
       of Coordination Languages and Self-Adaptive Systems


     September 5, 2017, Trento (Italy)
     Colocated with SEFM 2017 - http://sefm17.fbk.eu

FOCLASA 2017 is a workshop colocated with the 15th International
Conference on Software Engineering and Formal Methods (SEFM 2017). 
The goal of FOCLASA 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.

------ IMPORTANT DATES ------

June 9, 2017: (extended) Deadline for abstract submission
June 16, 2017: (extended) Deadline for paper submission
July 7, 2017: Notifications
July, 2017: Final versions (precise date TBA)
September 5, 2017: Workshop in Trento

------ TOPICS OF INTEREST ------

* Theoretical models and frameworks for component and/or service
coordination, service composition, 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 (Cloud Computing,
Internet of Things, Smart cities, Big Data, etc.).

* Languages and specification protocols for component and/or service
interaction, their semantics, expressiveness, validation and
verification, type checking, static and dynamic analysis.

* Models and architectures for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) cloud 
systems; 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

* Formal methods for self-adaptive systems, stochastic modeling and
analysis, reasoning under uncertainty, run-time synthesis.

* 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, etc.)

In particular, practice, experience and methodologies from the
following areas are solicited as well:

* Business process modeling
* Component-based systems
* Service-oriented computing
* Cloud computing
* Internet of Things
* Large-scale distributed systems
* Grid computing
* Multi-agent systems
* Networked embedded systems
* Peer-to-peer systems

Survey works analysing and comparing literature on the topics of
FOCLASA are also welcome.

------ PAPER SUBMISSION ------

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 LNCS style
and should be submitted as Portable Document Format (PDF) files using
the EasyChair submission site:


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 submission to other venues (conferences, workshops or 
journal) and submission of papers under consideration elsewhere is
not allowed.

All accepted papers will be included in the LNCS Workshop Proceedings of
SEFM 2017, to be published by Springer after the workshop. Additionally, 
and following the tradition of past editions, a special issue of Science 
in Computer Programming (SCP, Elsevier) will be devoted to the best papers 
accepted at FOCLASA 2017. 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.
