COORDINATION 2016 is the premier forum for publishing research results and experience reports on software technologies for collaboration and coordination in concurrent, distributed, and complex systems. The key focus of the conference is the quest for high-level abstractions that can capture interaction patterns and mechanisms occurring at all levels of the software architecture, up to the end-user domain. COORDINATION 2016 seeks high-quality contributions on the usage, study, formal analysis, design, and implementation of languages, models, and techniques for coordination in distributed, concurrent, pervasive, and parallel software-intensive computing systems. COORDINATION 2016 seeks as well to adapt and integrate traditional COORDINATION techniques in the realm of multi-agent systems (MAS), which typically involve more coarse-grained (cognitive, intelligent, goal-oriented) components.

Main topics of interest encompass all areas of coordination, including (but not limited to) coordination related aspects of:

* Models and paradigms
* Programming abstractions and languages
* Foundations, types and semantics
* Specification and verification
* Middlewares and architectures
* Distributed, mobile and networked computing
* Parallel and high-performance computing
* Nature- and bio-inspired approaches
* Self-adaptation, self-organisation and autonomic computing
* Collective systems, ensembles, federations, and systems-of-systems
* Teamwork, distributed problem solving and collective intelligence
* Multiagent systems, auction, negotiation, argumentation, and rational agents
* Trust, policies, reputation and security
* Applications and case studies

Submission and publication:

We solicit papers describing thorough and complete research results and/or experience reports on applications and cases studies of coordination. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in the LNCS Series.

Contributions must be written in English and report on original, unpublished work not submitted for publication elsewhere (cf. IFIP's codes of conduct). The submissions must not exceed 16 pages in length, including figures and references, prepared using Springer's LNCS style. Submissions not adhering to the above specified constraints may be rejected without review.

Papers should be submitted as PDF or PS via EasyChair:

Post-proceedings publication:

Relevant, high-quality papers will be invited to a special issue of a highly reputed journal. Previous special issues are under preparation within the journal on Logical Methods in Computer Science (
