            17th International Conference on Parallel Computing

Coordination programming is a term that everybody seems to have a vague
idea about, but only a few have a definite view on. And among those
there is a great deal of divergence in understanding what coordination is
all about. In this mini-symposium we intend to look at various
interpretations of, and approaches to, coordination: from the
conventional tuple-space, Linda-inspired constructions, such as CnC, to
behavioural models such as Reo, to more recent attempts to see a
coordination program as a projection of the full semantics of a
distributed application that can be more or less accurately inferred at
compile time and which affects resource- and performance-critical
parameters. The mini-symposium will serve as a forum for building bridges
between the various directions of research and will help us to share
experiences and build a community geared towards practical applications
of coordination programming.


The mini-symposium will address, but is not limited to, the following
issues through contributed papers and a panel-style discussion session
included in the programme:

* Why does coordination require a coordination language?  Is there a kind
  of analysis that is impeded by the lack of specific coordination-language

* Inference vs adaptation. What can be inferred and how should the
  coordination program adapt to the resource situation in parallel and
  distributed systems?

* What kind of tuning or self-tuning facilities should/can coordination
  programming approaches require/possess?

* What is the relationship between control-coordination and

* How can coordination programming address the challenges of cloud
  computing, big data processing/analysis and mixed-criticality
  cyberphysical systems?

* What are recent success stories in applying coordination programming to
  real-life applications?


CoPro 2015 solicits original research papers written in English. Being
a mini-symposium our focus is on bringing together researchers interested
in all aspects of coordination programming. We explicitly encourage all
sorts of contributions from mature research to position papers, work in
progress and crazy ideas. For the initial submission extended abstracts
of at least 2 pages are equally fine.

Titles, authors and abstracts of all papers accepted by the mini-symposium
will appear in the ParCo book of abstracts, which will distributed at the

All papers presented during the mini-symposium will be included in the
proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Parallel Computing
(ParCo 2015) and published as a volume of the series Advances of Parallel
Computing after the ParCo conference.

For CoPro 2015 the same formatting guidelines apply as for the main ParCo
conference. Thus, papers must be formatted in ParCo style and not exceed
10 pages. For style files and all further details see
