* Publication of extended version of selected work is planned in a special issue of an international journal as in previous editions of FOCLASA


* Submission of abstract: June 9, 2019
* Submission of papers: June 16, 2019
* Notification of acceptance: July 21, 2019
* Final version: July 31, 2019
* Workshop: September 17, 2019



Nowadays software systems are distributed, concurrent, mobile, and often involve the composition of heterogeneous components and stand-alone (micro)services. Service coordination, service orchestration and self-adaptation constitute the core characteristics of distributed and service-oriented systems. Theoretical/practical approaches to modelling and reasoning about (self-)adaptive behaviour help to simplify the development of complex distributed systems, enable their validation and evaluation, and improve interoperability, reusability and maintainability of such systems. The goal of the FOCLASA workshop is to gather researchers and practitioners of the aforementioned fields, to share and identify common problems, and to devise general novel solutions.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) both theoretical and practical solutions for what follows:
* Coordination, orchestration, composition and adaptation of components, services or microservices.
* Business processes and concurrent system modelling.
* Languages and models for component and service interaction, their semantics, expressiveness, validation and verification, type checking, static and dynamic analysis.
* Cloud/fog/edge computing, and large-scale distributed systems.
* Dynamic software architectures, self-adaptive, self-monitoring and self-organizing systems.
* Peer-to-peer and multi-agent systems, and blockchains.
* QoS observation, storage, history-based analysis in self-adaptive systems.



The conference proceedings will be published by Springer, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Extended versions of a selection of the best papers is planned to be published in a special issue of an international journal as in previous editions of FOCLASA.


Papers must be submitted electronically in PostScript or PDF by using a two-phase online submission process. Registration of information and and abstract (max. 250 words) of papers must be completed before June 9, 2019. Final submission of papers is due no later than June 16, 2019. All submissions will be handled through the EasyChair conference management system, accessible from the conference web site:


Contributions must be written in English and report on original, unpublished work not submitted for publication elsewhere. Full papers should be 15 pages long, including figures and references, and prepared by using Springer's LNCS style. Short papers (8 pages long) describing preliminary results or work-in-progress are encouraged as well. Submissions not adhering to the above specified constraints may be rejected without any review. Papers should be submitted as PDF via EasyChair.
