COORDINATION 2013 is the premier forum for publishing research results and experience reports on software technologies for collaboration and coordination in concurrent, distributed, and socio-technical systems. Its distinctive feature is its emphasis on high-level abstractions that capture interaction patterns manifest at all levels of the software architecture and extending into the realm of the end-user domain. COORDINATION 2013 seeks high-quality contributions on the usage, study, design, and implementation of languages, models, and techniques for coordination in distributed, concurrent, pervasive, and multicore software systems.

Main topics of interest

  • Programming abstractions and languages
  • Coordination models and paradigms
  • Software management and software engineering
  • Specification and verification
  • Foundations and types
  • Software for decentralized technologies
  • Multicore programming
  • Adaptive and autonomic systems
  • Coordination for humanity

Expected contributions

  • Research papers: that demonstrate an ability to increase modularity, improve adaptive behavior, simplify reasoning, and ultimately enhance the software development process and its integration into a socio-technical context. Both practical and foundational perspectives are of interest.
  • Experience reports: that describe lessons learned from the application of proposed models and techniques to problems in the real world.
  • Visions in Progress papers: that look far ahead into the future of coordination-related ideas. Exploring the long-term vision of coordination languages, models, middleware and algorithms.
