17th International Conference on
Application of Concurrency to System Design (ACSD 2017)

Zaragoza, Spain, June 28-30, 2017


submission deadline (abstracts): January 13, 2017
submission deadline (papers): January 20, 2017
notification of acceptance: March 17, 2017
camera-ready submission deadline: April 15, 2017
conference sessions: June 26-30, 2017


The conference aims at cross-fertilizing both theoretical and applied research
about formal approaches (in a broad sense) to designing computer systems that
exhibit some kind of concurrent behaviour. In particular, the following topics
are of interest:

* Formal models of computation and concurrency for the above systems and
problems, like data-flow models, communicating automata, Petri nets,
process algebras, graph rewriting systems, state charts, MSCs, modal and
temporal logics
* Compositional design principles like modular synthesis, distributed
simulation and implementation, distributed control, adaptivity,
supervisory control
* Algorithms and tools for concurrent systems, ranging from programming
languages to algorithmic methods for system analysis and construction,
including model checking, verification, and static analysis techniques
as well as synthesis procedures
* Synchronous and asynchronous systems on all design levels:
polychronous systems, endochronous systems, globally asynchronous locally
synchronous systems
* Cyber-physical systems, hybrid systems, networked systems, and networks in
biological systems
* High-performance computer architectures like many-core processors,
networks on chip, graphics processing units, instruction-level parallelism,
dataflow architectures, up to ad-hoc, mobile, and wireless networks
* Memory consistency models for multiprocessor and multicore architectures,
replicated data, including software and hardware memory models,
DRAM scheduling, cache coherency, memory-aware algorithms
* Real-time aspects, including hard real-time requirements, security and
safety-critical issues, functional and timing verification
* Implementation aspects like resource management, including task and
communication scheduling, network-, memory-, and power-management,
energy/power distribution, fault-tolerance, quality of service,
scalability, load balancing, power proportionality
* Design principles for concurrent systems, in particular hardware/software
co-design, platform-based design, component-based design, energy-aware
design, refinement techniques, hardware/software abstractions,
cross-layer optimization
* Business process modelling, workflow execution systems,
process (de-)composition, inter-organizational and heterogeneous workflow
systems, systems for computer-supported collaborative work, web services
* Case studies of general interest, from industrial applications to consumer
electronics and multimedia, automotive systems, (bio-)medical applications,
neuromorphic applications, internet (of things) and grid computing,
to gaming applications.


ACSD seeks papers describing original work which has not been previously published
and is not under review for publication elsewhere. All files must be prepared
using the latest IEEE Computer Society conference proceedings guidelines
(8.5" x 11" two-column format). The page limit for regular papers is 10 pages.

In addition to regular submissions, there will be a tools section. Tools will be
presented at the conference in an interactive session. Related papers describe a
tool, its functionality and interfaces as well as the underlying algorithms and
implementation aspects. These tool papers are limited to 6 pages.

Conference proceedings will be published on IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Accepted
regular and tool papers will be included in the conference proceedings. At least
one authors of each accepted contribution is expected to present the paper or
tool at the conference, and will be required to sign the IEEE copyright release

Several papers will be considered for publication in extended and revised form
in a special issue of a journal. All papers have to be submitted via EasyChair:
