Call For Papers

Conference Description

The 26th Conference on Concurrency Theory will take place in Madrid, from 1st to 4th September, 2015. It will be co-located with the 12th QEST, the 13th FORMATS, the 10th TGC, and a collection of Workshops, thus producing our "Madrid meet 2015" meeting.

The purpose of the CONCUR conferences is to bring together researchers, developers and students in order to contribute to the development and dissemination of the theory of concurrency and its applications. Twenty five years after our first meeting in 1990, it is still the reference annual event for researchers in this field.

The host this year will be the "Universidad Complutense de Madrid", close to the historical and (new) business center of Madrid, the capital of Spain.


Submissions are solicited in semantics, logics, verification and analysis of concurrent systems.

The main topics are (but are not strictly limited to):

Basic models of concurrency: abstract machines, domain theoretic models, game theoretic models, categorical models, process algebras, graph transformation systems, coalgebraic models, and Petri nets;
Logics for concurrency: modal logics, probabilistic and stochastic logics, temporal logics, and resource logics;
Models of specialized systems: biology-inspired systems, circuits, hybrid systems, mobile and collaborative systems, multi-core processors, probabilistic systems, real-time systems, service oriented computing, synchronous systems, and cloud computing;
Verification and analysis techniques for concurrent systems: abstract interpretation, atomicity checking, model checking, race detection, pre-order and equivalence checking, run-time verification, state-space exploration, static analysis, testing, theorem proving, and type systems;
Related programming models: distributed, component based, object-oriented, and web services;
Security issues in concurrent systems.

Submission and Publication

Submissions will be in electronic form via EasyChair. The usage of pdflatex and the LIPIcs style file (see below and here for some formatting tricks) are mandatory: no changes to font size, page geometry, etc. are permitted. Authors are invited to submit a draft of at most 13 pages including references. Submissions not in the correct format or submitted after the deadline will not be considered.

If necessary, the paper may be supplemented with a clearly marked appendix, which will be reviewed at the discretion of the program committee and the reviewers.

As usual, for an accepted paper to be included in the proceedings, one of the authors must commit to presenting the paper at the conference.

All papers must be original and unpublished. Simultaneous submission to other conferences or workshops with published proceedings or to journals is not allowed. Exceptionally, however, concurrent submissions to CONCUR and TGC are allowed, and, in fact encouraged, for those papers that may potentially enhance both conferences. Authors of such double submissions should identify them to the Program Chairs at the time of submission (by choosing the "Regular paper submitted also to TGC" category in the EasyChair site). Reviews may be shared between CONCUR and TGC. Submissions accepted by CONCUR will be considered automatically withdrawn from TGC.

For the first time this year CONCUR will have an open publication of its proceedings, initiating a new collection in LIPIcs (Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics), published under an open access license by Dagstuhl Publishing. As usual, the Proceedings will be (e-)available (now to everybody!) before the conference. Authors will retain full rights over their work. The accepted papers will be published under a CC-BY license.

Submission of Abstracts: April 13th, 2015
Submission of Papers: April 20th, 2015 (firm)
Notification: June 15th, 2015
Final version: July 3rd, 2015
