Modern information systems rely increasingly on combining concurrent,
distributed, real-time, reconfigurable and heterogeneous 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 aims to explore the
spectrum of languages, middleware, services, and algorithms that
separate behavior from interaction, therefore increasing modularity,
simplifying reasoning, and ultimately enhancing software development.

Topics of interest:

- MODELS AND FOUNDATIONS: models for distributed and concurrent
      interaction, component composition, service orchestration,
      workflow management.
- SPECIFICATION AND VERIFICATION: modeling and analysis of properties
      related to security, dependability, resource-awareness,
- DYNAMIC SOFTWARE ARCHITECTURES: software composition and scripting
      languages, dynamic software evolution and update, configuration
      and deployment languages. 
      orchestration and control of distributed and concurrent
- MIDDLEWARE ARCHITECTURES: shared spaces, publish-subscribe,
     and sensor networks.
- CASE STUDIES: application of coordination techniques in business
      process modelling, e-commerce, factory automation, collaboration,
      command and control.


The invited lectures will be given in joint sessions among
Coordination'08 and the two confederated conferences Distributed
Applications and Interoperable Systems (DAIS'08) and Formal Methods
for Open Object-based Distributed Systems (FMOODS'08):
- Matt Welsh, Harvard University, USA (invited by Coordination'08)
- Alexander Wolf, Imperial College London, UK (invited by DAIS'08)
- Andrew Myers, Cornell University, USA (invited by FMOODS'08)

The Coordination 2008 conference solicits high quality papers
reporting research results and/or experience reports related to the
topics mentioned above. All papers must be original, unpublished, and
not submitted for publication elsewhere. Contributions should be
submitted electronically as postscript or PDF, using the SPRINGER
LNCS style. Papers should not exceed 15 pages in length. Each paper
will undergo a thorough process of review and the conference
proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the LNCS series.
Proceedings will be made available at the conference. Selected papers
will be invited to a special issue of The Science of Computer
Programming journal. Only electronic submission is admitted
through the conference web site.
