PLACES 2023 : 14th Workshop on Programming Language Approaches to Concurrency- and Communication-cEntric Software
Call For Papers
For over a decade, PLACES has been a popular forum for researchers from
different fields to exchange new ideas about challenges to modern and
future programming, where concurrency and distribution are the norm
rather than a marginal concern.
## KEYNOTE SPEAKERS AND TALKS
* Marieke Huisman, University of Twente, NL.
"VerCors: Verification of Concurrent Software"
* Vasco T. Vasconcelos, University of Lisbon, PT.
"30 Years of Session Types"
## SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
Submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=places2023
Submissions are invited in the general area of programming language
approaches to concurrency, communication and distribution, ranging from
foundational issues, through language implementations, to applications
and case studies. Submissions are peer-reviewed by a minimum of three
reviewers, with the aim of allocating at least one expert reviewer.
Submissions must be formatted with the EPTCS style.
We welcome the following types of submission:
* Research papers with a maximum length of 8 pages (with no
restriction on bibliography or appendices, which the reviewers are
not required to read). Submitted research papers are reviewed based
on their novelty, clarity, and technical soundness. They must not be
submitted for publication elsewhere, and if accepted, they will
appear in the PLACES proceedings.
* Talk proposals with a maximum length of 2 pages (with no restriction
on bibliography or appendices, which the reviewers are not required
to read). Talk proposals may present ongoing work, as well as work
already published elsewhere. Accepted talk proposals will be
presented at the workshop, but will not appear in the PLACES
Relevant topics include, but are not limited to:
* Design and implementation of programming languages with first class
concurrency and communication primitives
* Models for concurrent and distributed systems, such as process
algebra and automata, and their mechanisation in proof assistants
* Behavioural types, including session types
* Concurrent data types, objects and actors
* Verification and program analysis methods for safe and secure
concurrent and distributed software
* Interface and contract languages for communication and distribution
* Applications to microservices, sensor networks, scientific
computing, HPC, blockchains, robotics
* Concurrency and communication in event processing and business
## PROCEEDINGS AND JOURNAL SPECIAL ISSUE
The proceedings of PLACES 2023 with accepted research papers will be
published as a volume of EPTCS - https://eptcs.org/
Authors of selected papers from PLACES 2023 will be later invited to
submit extended versions of their papers to a special issue of
Information and Computation or JLAMP or FAC.
