        18th International Conference on Concurrency Theory
                    September 4th - 7th, 2007
                        Lisbon, Portugal


CONCUR 2007, the 18th International Conference on Concurrency Theory,
will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, September 4 - 7, 2007. The
purpose of the CONCUR conferences is to bring together researchers
working on the theory of concurrency and its applications.

Submissions are solicited in all areas of semantics, logics, and
verification techniques for concurrent systems. The principal topics
include (but are not limited to):

* Basic models and logics of concurrent and distributed computation
  (such as process algebras, Petri nets, domain theoretic or game
  theoretic models, modal and temporal logics).

* Specialized models or classes of systems (such as circuits,
  synchronous systems, real time and hybrid systems, stochastic
  systems, data bases, mobile and migrating systems, parametric
  protocols, biologically inspired systems).

* Related verification techniques and tools (such as state-space
  exploration, model-checking, synthesis, abstraction, automated
  deduction, testing).

* Related programming models (such as distributed,
constraints or object oriented, graph rewriting, as well as associated
  type systems, static analyses, and abstract machines).

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract; submissions will
be evaluated by the program committee for inclusion in the
proceedings, which will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science series. Papers must contain original
contributions, be clearly written, and include appropriate reference
to and comparison with related work. Simultaneous submission to
journals or other conferences with published proceedings is not

Authors are required to submit a paper title and a short abstract
before submitting the extended abstract. The short abstract should not
exceed 200 words, and it should be entered at the conference
web submission site.  The extended abstract should not exceed 15
pages, and it should be formatted according to Springer-Verlag LNCS
guidelines. If necessary, the extended abstract may be supplemented
with a clearly marked appendix, which will be reviewed at the
discretion of the program committee. The link for submission is
accessible from the Concur 2007 web site.
