                                Scope

Modern software lives in a concurrent world.  The ubiquity of the
Internet allows distributed software components to be composed into
complex networked systems.  At the other end of the spectrum, with
multicore processors now the norm. Hence applications are bound to be
inherently concurrent and communication centered.

Coordination 2009 seeks high-quality papers on programming languages,
models, and architectures that address the challenge of building
robust distributed and concurrent applications.  The conference
focuses on the design and implementation of models that allow
compositional construction of large-scale concurrent and distributed
systems, including both practical and foundational models, runtime
systems, and related verification and analysis techniques.

Past incarnations of Coordination have emphasized foundations.
However, given the increasing importance of concurrency in almost
every software domain, the organizers of Coordination 2009 are keen to
provide a strong forum for high-quality papers that address practical
aspects of concurrent programming models; e.g.: application of
concurrency to novel domains, comparisons of alternative programming
models on important problems, or domain-specific languages.

                          Topics of Interest

DISTRIBUTED AND CONCURRENT PROGRAMMING MODELS: multicore programming,
     stream programming, data parallel programming, event-driven
     programming, web programming

FOUNDATIONS OF DISTRIBUTED AND CONCURRENT INTERACTION:
     models for processes, service composition and orchestration, workflow
     management, data query, tuple spaces

SPECIFICATION, VERIFICATION, AND TYPES: modeling and analysis of types
     and properties related to security, dependability, resource
     consumption, and component conformance for concurrent and
     distributed systems

HIGH-LEVEL OPTIMIZATIONS: program transformations for performance
     enhancement, runtime load balancing techniques, static and
     dynamic resource management

QUALITY OF SERVICE: fault-tolerant programming models and runtime support,
    models with responsiveness guarantees

DISTRIBUTED SOFTWARE MANAGEMENT: component and module systems for
     distributed software, dynamic software evolution and update
     technologies, configuration and deployment architectures

SYSTEM SUPPORT FOR PROGRAMMING MODELS: P2P frameworks, mobile ad-hoc
     networks, sensor networks, publish-subscribe systems, event
     processing

CASE STUDIES: application of novel distributed and concurrent
     techniques in business process modeling, e-commerce, factory
     automation, collaboration, command and control

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

                        Submission Guidelines

The Coordination 2009 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 are strictly limited to 15 pages in length, _including_
figures and appendices. 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 journal
Science of Computer Programming.
