Call For Papers

== CALL FOR PAPERS ===================================================
1st special session on FORmal approaches to PArallel and Distributed systems (4PAD 2014)
Turin, 12-14 February 2014
(special session of PDP 2014)
http://www.pdp2014.org/specialsessions/formalhpc/index.html
=====================================================================


Important dates
===============
Abstract submission: 25th August 2013
Paper submission: 1st September 2013
Acceptance notification: 7th Oct 2013
Camera ready due: 31st Oct 2013
Conference: 12th - 14th Feb 2014


Scope
=====
The aim of this special session is to foster the recent convergence on research interests from several communities investigating modern parallel, distributed, and network-based processing systems such as autonomic computing systems, cloud computing systems, service-oriented systems and parallel computing architectures.


Topics
=====
We solicit papers in all areas of the above mentioned systems, including (but not limited to):
* Rigorous software engineering approaches and their tool support;
* Model-based approaches, including model-driven development;
* Service- and component-based approaches;
* Semantics, types and logics;
* Formal specification and verification;
* Performance analysis based on formal approaches;
* Formal aspects of programming paradigms and languages;
* Formal approaches to parallel architectures and weak memory models;
* Formal approaches to deployment, run-time analysis, reconfiguration, and monitoring;
* Parallel and distributed verification;
* Case studies developed/analyzed with formal approaches;


Submission guidelines
================
Papers should be sent in PDF format using the IEEE Conference proceedings style (IEEEtran, double-column, 10pt). The length of the papers cannot exceed 8 pages. Additional details and proofs omitted due to space limitations may be included in a clearly marked appendix.

Submitted papers must describe work unpublished in refereed venues, and not submitted for publication elsewhere.

Double-bind review: authors must take care of not revealing their identities and institutions. The first page of the paper should contain the title and abstract, but not the author names & affiliations. Relevant references to an author's previous research should not be suppressed, but instead referenced in a neutral way.

Papers are to be submitted through EasyChair at:

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pdp2014


Proceedings
==========
Accepted papers will be published by IEEE Computer Society in the same volume of the main conference (indexed, among others, by IEEE explore, DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of Knowledge). At least one of the authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present their papers at the conference.


Special Issue
==========
We plan to publish a special issue in the Springer Journal on Service Oriented Computing and Applications (http://www.springer.com/computer/communication+networks/journal/11761), in collaboration with the 10th International Workshop on Web Services and Formal Methods: Formal Aspects of Service-Oriented and Cloud Computing (http://www.cs.le.ac.uk/events/wsfm2013/).
