COORDINATION 2022 - 24th International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages

COORDINATION 2022 is one of the three conferences of DisCoTec 2022.

COVID-19

COORDINATION 2022 is planned as a physical, in-person event, with certain support for remote presence, both for speakers and for other participants who are unable or unwilling to come. Depending on the pandemic situation, we may have to make a decision whether to cancel the physical component of the event or not.

Scope

Modern information systems rely increasingly on combining concurrent, distributed, mobile, adaptive, 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 languages have emerged as a successful approach, in that they provide abstractions that cleanly separate behaviour from communication, therefore increasing modularity, simplifying reasoning, and ultimately enhancing software development. Building on the success of the previous editions, this conference provides a well-established forum for the growing community of researchers interested in models, languages, architectures, and implementation techniques for coordination.

Main topics

Topics of interest encompass all areas of coordination, including (but not limited to) coordination related aspects of:

Special topic

We seek contributions that enable the cross-fertilisation with other research communities in computer science or in other engineering or scientific disciplines. Depending on the quality of the contributions, we plan to have dedicated sessions in the program, possibly together with a panel discussion.

Tool papers

We welcome tool papers that describe experience reports, technological artefacts and innovative prototypes (including engines, APIs, etc.), for coordinating, modelling, analysing, simulating or testing systems, as well as educational tools in the scope of the research topics of COORDINATION. In addition, we welcome submissions promoting the integration of existing tools relevant to the community. Submissions to the tool track must include (in addition to the paper) a link to a demo video that previews the potential tool presentation at the conference.

Submissions

Important dates

Deadlines expire at 23:59 anywhere on earth on the dates displayed above.

Publication

Authors are invited to submit papers electronically in PostScript or PDF using a two-phase online submission process. Registration of the paper information and abstract (max. 250 words) must be completed according to the above submission dates and submissions are handled through the EasyChair conference management system, accessible from the above submission site.

Contributions must be written in English and report on original, unpublished work not submitted for publication elsewhere (cf. IFIP’s Author Code of Conduct, see http://www.ifip.org/ under Publications/Links). The submissions must not exceed the total page number limit (see below) prepared using Springer’s LNCS style. Submissions not adhering to the above specified constraints may be rejected without review.

NOTE: a lightweight rebuttal will be introduced during the reviewing phase, allowing reviewers to ask for a quick rebuttal in case of a clearly identifiable issue that seems decisive for the review outcome and which can likely be quickly clarified by the authors. The rebuttal is only used when such questions arise, so not necessarily for all papers.

Submission categories:

ATTENTION: if you believe that your submission is related to the special topic Microservices, then please indicate Microservices as the first of the Author keywords in the online submission system.

Proceedings

The conference proceedings, formed by accepted submissions from any category, will be published by Springer in LNCS-IFIP volumes.

Special issues

Following the tradition of previous editions of COORDINATION, depending on the quality and number of the submissions, we will organise special issues of selected papers in reputable journals like the journal of Science of Computer Programming’s Software Track for tool papers and the journal of Logical Methods in Computer Science for the remaining categories.

EAPLS Artefact Badging

To improve and reward reproducibility and to give more visibility and credit to the effort of tool developers in our community, authors of accepted (regular and tool, short and long) papers will be invited to submit publicly available (using permanent repositories such as Software Heritage, Zenodo, etc.) artefacts associated with their paper for evaluation, and based on the result of the evaluation they may be awarded one or more badges. See EAPLS Artifact Badges for details. Artefact submission is optional and the result of the artefact evaluation will not alter the paper’s acceptance decision. Detailed guidelines for the preparation and submission of the artefacts will be made available.
