Call For Papers
26th International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages

Dates: June 18-20, 2024
Location: University of Groningen, The Netherlands

Paper submission deadline: February 09, 2024
Submission Link:

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:

- Theoretical models and foundations for coordination:
component composition, concurrency, distribution, mobility; dynamic, spatial
and probabilistic aspects of coordination; logic, types, semantics.
- Coordination of multi-agent and collective systems:
models, languages, infrastructures, self-adaptation, self-organisation,
distributed solving, collective intelligence and emerging behaviour.
- Coordination and modern distributed computing:
web services, microservices, peer-to-peer networks, grid computing,
context-awareness, ubiquitous computing, mobile computing, reversible
- Session-based programming:
models, languages, behavioural types, and tools.
- Models, languages, verification techniques, and tools for
interacting smart contracts and (blockchain-based) decentralised
- Languages, methodologies, and tools for secure coordination.
- Cybersecurity aspects of coordinated systems, coordinated approaches to
- Nature- and bio-inspired approaches to coordination.
- Specification, refinement, and analysis of architectures:
patterns and styles, verification of functional and non-functional
properties, including performance and security aspects.
- Dynamic software architectures:
distributed mobile code, configuration, reconfiguration, networked computing,
parallel, high-performance and cloud computing.
- Coordination platforms for infrastructures of emergent new application
domains, like IoT, fog-, and edge-computing.
- Programming methodologies, languages, middleware, tools, and environments
for the development and verification of coordinated applications, including
DevOps approaches.
- Coordination in business process management:
coordination models for business process management, process mining
techniques and tools for coordination models.
- Industrial relevance of coordination and software architectures:
programming in the large, domain-specific software architectures and
coordination models, industry-driven efforts in coordination and case
- Interdisciplinary aspects of coordination.

Invited Speaker
Marieke Huisman, University of Twente, The Netherlands

Important dates
- Abstract submission: February 02, 2024
- Paper submission: February 09, 2024
- Paper notification: March 29, 2024
- Camera-ready: April 24, 2024

Dates are Anywhere on Earth (AoE).

We invite you to submit:

- Regular papers (7-15 pages, not counting references):
describing thorough and complete research results and experience reports. In
a clear case of need, as an exception, authors may ask for permission via
email to the PC co-chairs to exceed the paper's max length by at most 10%,
under the condition that last-minute shortening would really damage the
clarity of the paper or result in non-submission. The authors must make a
draft of the paper available to the PC co-chairs via EasyChair.

- Short papers (4-6 pages, not counting references):
describing research in progress or opinion papers on the past of
COORDINATION research, on the current state of the art, or on prospects for
the years to come.

- Survey papers (16-25 pages, not counting references):
describing important results and success stories related to the topics of

- Tool papers (4-15 pages, not counting references):
describing technological artefacts in the scope of the research topics of
COORDINATION. Tool papers should provide a clear account of the tool's
functionality, discuss the tool's practical capabilities possibly with
reference to the type and size of problems it can handle, and, when
applicable, report on realistic case studies (possibly providing a rigorous
experimental evaluation). Tool papers may also provide an account of the
theoretical foundations, including relevant citations, and present design
and implementation concerns, possibly including software architecture and
core data structures. Papers that present extensions to existing tools
should clearly describe the improvements or extensions with respect to
previously published versions of the tool, possibly providing data on
enhancements in terms of resources and capabilities. Papers may contain a
link to a publicly downloadable MPEG-4 demo video of at most 10 minutes

Following ACM's definition [1], an artefact is "a digital object that was either
created by the authors to be used as part of the study or generated by the
experiment itself. For example, artifacts can be software systems, scripts used
to run experiments, input datasets, raw data collected in the experiment, or
scripts used to analyze results".

To improve and reward reproducibility and to give more visibility and credit to
the effort of tool developers in the COORDINATION community, authors of
submitted papers are invited to submit publicly available artefacts (using
permanent repositories such as Software Heritage, Zenodo, etc.), which will be
associated with their paper for evaluation. Based on the result of the artefact
evaluation, one or more badges may be applied to a paper. Specifically,
COORDINATION uses the EAPLS badging scheme [2], which in its own turn is based
on and consistent with the ACM initiative.

Artefact submission is mandatory for tool papers and the result of the artefact
evaluation will be considered in the tool paper's acceptance decision. Instead,
artefact submission is optional for all the other paper categories and the
result of the artefact evaluation will not affect the paper's acceptance
decision but may affect the best paper selection.

Dates (AoE):
- Artefact submission: February 29, 2024
- Kick-the-tires phase:
- Problem reports from reviewers: 8 March, 2024
- Authors' response to reviewers: 15 March, 2024
- Artefact notification: March 29, 2024


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

Special issues
After the conference, accepted papers (except for tool papers) selected from
COORDINATION and FORTE programmes will be invited to a special issue of the
Logical Methods in Computer Science journal. The paper submission deadline is
planned for October/November 2024, while the notifications for the first round
of reviews around February 2025. Selected accepted tool papers, instead, will be
invited to a special issue of a reputable journal with a track dedicated to
software, like the Journal of Science of Computer Programming's Software Track.
