* 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 
* 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 


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Contributions must be written in English and report on original, unpublished 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.
