Combined 23th International Workshop on Expressiveness in Concurrency
and 13th Workshop on Structural Operational Semantics (EXPRESS/SOS 2016)

August 22, 2016, Québec City (Canada)
Affiliated with CONCUR 2016


The EXPRESS workshop series aims at bringing together researchers
interested in the expressiveness of various formal systems and
semantic notions, particularly in the field of concurrency. The SOS
workshop series aims at being a forum for researchers, students and
practitioners interested in new developments, and directions for
future investigation, in the field of structural operational

Since 2012, the EXPRESS and SOS communities have joined forces and
organised a combined EXPRESS/SOS workshop on the formal semantics
of systems and programming concepts, and on the expressiveness of
mathematical models of computation.

Topics of interest for this workshop include (but are not limited to):
- expressiveness and comparison of models of computation (process
algebras, event structures, Petri nets, rewrite systems)
- expressiveness and comparison of programming models (distributed,
component-based, object-oriented, service-oriented);
- logics for concurrency (modal logics, probabilistic and stochastic
logics, temporal logics and resource logics);
- analysis techniques for concurrent systems;
- theory of structural operational semantics (meta-theory,
category-theoretic approaches, congruence results);
- comparison of structural operational semantics to other formal
semantics approaches
- applications and case studies of structural operational semantics;
- software tools that automate, or are based on, structural
operational semantics.


We solicit two types of submissions:

* Full papers (up to 15 pages).
* Short papers (up to 5 pages, not included in the workshop proceedings)

Simultaneous submission to journals, conferences or other workshops is
only allowed for short papers; full papers must be unpublished.

All submissions should adhere to the EPTCS format (,
and submission is performed through the EXPRESS/SOS 2016 EasyChair
server (

The final versions of accepted full papers will be published in EPTCS.
