CONFERENCE GOALS

Modern information systems rely increasingly on combining concurrent, distributed, mobile, adaptive, reconfigurable and heterogenous components. New models, architectures, languages and verification techniques are necessary to cope with the complexity induced by the demands of today\’s software development. Coordination languages have emerged as a successful approach, in that they provide abstractions

that cleanly separate behaviour from communication, therefore increasing modularity, simplifying reasoning, and ultimately enhancing software development.

Building on the success of the previous editions, this conference provides a well-established forum for the growing community of researchers interested in models, languages, architectures, and implementation techniques for coordination.

Topics of interest encompass all areas of coordination, including (but not limited to) coordination related aspects of:

* Theoretical models and foundations for coordination: component composition, concurrency, mobility, dynamic, spatial and probabilistic aspects of coordination, emergent behaviour, types, semantics;

* Specification, refinement, and analysis of architectures: patterns and styles, verification of functional and non-functional properties, including performance aspects;

* Coordination, architectural, and interface definition languages: implementation, interoperability, heterogeneity;

* Middlewares and coordination;

* Dynamic software architectures: distributed mobile code, configuration, reconfiguration, networked computing, parallel, high-performance and cloud computing;

* Nature- and bio-inspired approaches to coordination;

* Coordination of multiagent and collective systems: models, languages, infrastructures, self-adaptation, self-organisation, distributed solving, collective intelligence and emerging behaviour;

* Coordination and modern distributed computing: Web services, peer-to-peer networks, grid computing, context-awareness, ubiquitous computing, mobile computing;

* Programming languages, middleware, tools, and environments for the development of coordinated applications;

* Programming methodologies and verification of coordinated applications;

* Industrial relevance of coordination and software architectures: programming in the large, domain-specific software architectures and coordination models, case studies;

* Interdisciplinary aspects of coordination.

PROCEEDINGS

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 issues of COORDINATION.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

Authors are invited to submit full papers electronically in PostScript or PDF using a two-phase online submission process. Registration of the paper information and abstract (max. 250 words) must be completed before February 3, 2017. Submission of the full paper is due no later than February 10, 2017. Submissions are handled through the EasyChair conference management system, accessible from the conference web site:

http://2017.discotec.org .

Contributions must be written in English and report on original, unpublished work not submitted for publication elsewhere (cf. IFIP’s Author Code of Conduct, see http://www.ifip.org/ under Publications/Links). The submissions must not exceed the total page number limit (see below), including figures and references, prepared using Springer’s LNCS style. Submissions not adhering to the above specified constraints may be rejected without review. Papers should be submitted as PDF or PS via EasyChair.

We solicit two kinds of submissions:

* Full papers (up to 16 pages + 2 pages references): describing thorough and complete research results and experience reports.

* Short papers (up to 8 pages + 1 page references): describing research in progress or opinion papers on the past of Coordination research, on the current state of the art, or on prospects for the years to come.

The conference proceedings, formed by accepted submissions of both kinds above, will be published by Springer in the LNCS Series.

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