This is an open call for contributions to the special issue “Coordination and Self-Adaptiveness of Software Applications”. The special issue belongs to the Elsevier journal “Science of Computer Programming” (ISSN: 0167-6423).

Aims and scope
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 this special issue is to allow researchers and practitioners to discuss common problems and present novel solutions in the aforementioned fields.

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.
