=== Scope ===

Interaction and Concurrency Experiences (ICEs) is a series of international scientific meetings oriented to theoretical computer science researchers with special interest in models, verification, tools, and programming primitives for complex interactions.

The general scope of the venue includes theoretical and applied aspects of interactions and the synchronization mechanisms used among components of concurrent/distributed systems, related to several areas of computer science in the broad spectrum ranging from formal specification and analysis to studies inspired by emerging computational models.

We solicit contributions relevant to Interaction and Concurrency, including but not limited to:
* 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


=== Selection Procedure ===

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

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 the PC members not in conflict with the submission (the forum preserves anonymity of reviewers). The forum is used by reviewers to ask questions, clarifications, and modifications from the authors, allowing them better to explain 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 eight 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 workshop.

For the first time in ICE 2016 we plan to partially disclose the reviews of accepted papers. The public part of reviews will be published on the workshop website, together with the submitted version of the accepted papers. We believe this mechanism will enhance reviewing transparency and become yet another trademark of ICE in the following years.


=== Submission Guidelines ===

We invite four types of submissions:
(1) Full Papers;
(2) Short Papers;
(3) Brief Announcements of previously published work;
(4) Brief Announcements of unpublished work.

Full and short papers will appear in the post-proceedings and must report previously unpublished work and not be simultaneously submitted to other conferences/workshops with refereed proceedings. The ICE 2016 post-proceedings will be published in Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (http://eptcs.org/). In addition, we invite brief announcements of already published work or unpublished results, should the authors be interested in discussing their published research with the ICE community and giving a talk. Brief announcements will not appear in the post-proceedings, however they can be made available to participants (provided that the authors give their consent).

Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format via EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ice2016). Full papers should not exceed 15 pages in length, while short papers should not exceed 5 pages. Brief announcements of already published work should not exceed one page abstract which should include an explicit reference to the respective publication. Brief announcements of unpublished work should not exceed 5 pages. All submissions must be prepared in EPTCS style (http://style.eptcs.org/).

Accepted (full and short) papers and brief announcements must be presented at the workshop by one of the authors.


=== Special Issue ===

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 regularly 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 can be found below.
