We would like to kindly invite you to participate in this workshop Foclasa 2020

** FOCLASA 2020

18th International Workshop on Orchestration, Coordination Languages and Self-Adaptive Systems

Amsterdam, The Netherlands

September 15, 2020

(Associated with SEFM 2020)

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, SEFM organizers have decided that the conference will not take place physically but will be replaced by a virtual event. According to this, FOCLASA will also be cellebrated on-line under the same premises that the main conference. Important dates have been extended.


* Publication of the proceedings in the Lecture Notes of Computer Science of Springer-Verlag, following the collective volumes published by SEFM 2020
* Publication of extended version of selected work is planned in a special issue of an international journal as in previous editions of FOCLASA


* Abstract submission (extended):        July 26, 2020
* Paper submission (extended):        July 31, 2020
* Notification of acceptance (extended):    August 24, 2020
* Final version (extended):            August 31, 2020
* Workshop:                        September 15, 2020



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.
* AI for coordination and self-adaptativeness



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 abstract (max. 250 words) of papers must be completed before June 6, 2020. Final submission of papers is due no later than June 16, 2020. All submissions will be handled through the EasyChair conference management system, accessible from the conference web site:

Contributions must be written in English and are required to report on original, unpublished work and should not be submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere (cf. IFIP's Author Code of Conduct). Full papers should be 15 pages long, including figures and references, and prepared by using Springer's LNCS style. Short papers (8-10 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.
