Call For Papers

ICE 2023
16th Interaction and Concurrency Experience
June 19, 2023, Lisbon
Satellite workshop of DisCoTec 2023

Submission link:

The Interaction and Concurrency Experience (ICE) series of
international scientific meetings are a forum for computer science
researchers with research interests in models, verification, tools,
and programming primitives for complex interactions.


* Distinctive selection procedure
* ICE welcomes full papers to be included in the proceedings
* ICE also welcomes oral communications of already published or
preliminary work
* Publication in EPTCS
* Special issue in the Journal of Logical and Algebraic Methods in
Programming (Elsevier) (to be confirmed)


* 10th April 2023: abstract submission
* 13th April 2023: paper submission
* 8th May 2023: notification
* 19th June 2023: ICE workshop
* 31st July 2023: camera-ready for EPTCS post-proceedings

=== SCOPE ===

The general scope of the workshop is interaction and concurrency,
broadly construed. The workshop welcomes contributions spanning the
spectrum from theoretical models to practical implementations and
empirical studies. Topics of interest include (but are not limited

* Formal semantics
* Process algebras and calculi
* Models and languages
* Protocols
* Logics and types
* Expressiveness
* Model transformations
* Tools, implementations, and experiments
* Specification and verification
* Coinductive techniques
* Tools and techniques for automation
* Synthesis techniques

Prospective authors are welcome to contact the chairs for advice on
whether their proposed submission is in scope.


Since its first edition in 2008, the distinguishing feature of ICE has
been an innovative paper selection mechanism based on an interactive,
friendly, and constructive discussion amongst authors and PC members
in an online forum.

During the review phase, each submission is published in a dedicated
discussion forum. The discussion forum can be accessed by the authors
of the submission and by all PC members not in conflict with the
submission (the forum preserves anonymity). The forum is used by
reviewers to ask questions, clarifications, and modifications from the
authors, allowing them better to explain and to improve all aspects of
their submission. The evaluation of the submission will take into
account not only the reviews, but also the outcome of the discussion.

As witnessed by the past editions of ICE, this procedure considerably
improves the accuracy of the reviews, the fairness of the selection,
the quality of camera-ready papers, and the discussion during the

ICE adopts a light double-blind reviewing process, detailed below.


Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format via OpenReview:

We invite two types of submissions:

* Research papers: original contributions that will be published
in the workshop post-proceedings. Research papers must not be
simultaneously submitted to other conferences or workshops with
refereed proceedings. Research papers should be 3-16 pages
(references not included). Short research papers are
welcome; for example a 5 page short paper fits this category
perfectly. The submitted PDF can use any LaTeX style (but the
post-proceedings will use the EPTCS style).

* Oral communications: will be presented at the workshop, but will
not appear in the post-proceedings. This type of contribution
includes e.g. previously published contributions, preliminary
work, and position papers. There is no strict page limit for
this kind of submission but papers of 1-5 pages would be
appreciated. For example, a one page summary of previously
published work is welcome in this category.

Authors of research papers must omit their names and institutions from
the title page, they should refer to their other work in the third
person and omit acknowledgements that could reveal their identity or
affiliation. The purpose is to avoid any bias based on authors’
identity characteristics, such as gender, seniority, or nationality,
in the review process. Our goal is to facilitate an unbiased approach
to reviewing by supporting reviewers’ access to works that do not
carry obvious references to the authors’ identities. As mentioned
above, this is a lightweight double-blind process. Anonymization
should not be a heavy burden for authors, and should not make papers
weaker or more difficult to review. Advertising the paper on alternate
forums (e.g., on a personal web-page, pre-print archive, email, talks,
discussions with colleagues) is permitted, and authors will not be
penalized by for such advertisement.

Papers in the “Oral communications” category need not be
anonymized. For any questions concerning the double blind process,
feel free to consult the ICEcreamers.

We are keen to enhance the balanced, inclusive and diverse nature of
the ICE community, and would particularly encourage female colleagues
and members of other underrepresented groups to submit their work.


Accepted research papers and communications must be presented at the
workshop by one of the authors.

Accepted research papers will be published after the workshop in
Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science.

We plan to invite authors of selected papers and brief announcements
to submit their work in a special issue in the Journal of Logical and
Algebraic Methods in Programming (Elsevier). Such contributions will
be peer-reviewed according to the standard journal policy, but they
will be handled in a shorter time than regular submissions. A list of
published and in preparation special issues of previous ICE editions
is reported on the ICE website.
