Modern information systems rely increasingly on combining concurrent,
distributed, mobile, adaptive, reconfigurable and heterogeneous
components. New models, architectures, languages and verification
techniques are necessary to cope with the complexity induced by the
demands of today's software development. Coordination languages have
emerged as a successful approach, in that they provide abstractions that
cleanly separate behaviour from communication, therefore increasing
modularity, simplifying reasoning, and ultimately enhancing software

Building on the success of the previous editions, this conference
provides a well-established forum for the growing community of
researchers interested in models, languages, architectures, and
implementation techniques for coordination.

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

* Theoretical models and foundations for coordination: component
  composition, concurrency, mobility, dynamic, spatial and probabilistic
  aspects of coordination, logic, emergent behaviour, types, semantics;

* Specification, refinement, and analysis of architectures: patterns and
styles, verification of functional and non-functional properties,
including performance aspects;

* Dynamic software architectures: distributed mobile code,
configuration, reconfiguration, networked computing, parallel,
high-performance and cloud computing;

* Nature- and bio-inspired approaches to coordination;

* Coordination of multiagent and collective systems: models, languages,
infrastructures, self-adaptation, self-organisation, distributed
solving, collective intelligence and emerging behaviour;

* Coordination and modern distributed computing: Web services,
peer-to-peer networks, grid computing, context-awareness, ubiquitous
computing, mobile computing;

* Coordination platforms for infrastructures of emerging new application
domains like IoT, fog- and edge- computing;

* Programming methodologies, languages, middleware, tools, and environments for the
development and verification of coordinated applications;

* Tools, languages and methodologies for secure coordination;

* Industrial relevance of coordination and software architectures:
programming in the large, domain-specific software architectures and
coordination models, case studies;

* Interdisciplinary aspects of coordination;

* Industry-led efforts in coordination and case studies.

The conference proceedings will be published by Springer, in the Lecture
Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

Extended versions of a selection of the best papers is planned to be
published in a special issue of an international journal as in previous


Authors are invited to submit full papers electronically in PostScript
or PDF using a two-phase online submission process. Registration of the
paper information and abstract (max. 250 words) must be completed before
February 2, 2017. Submission of the full paper is due no later than
February 9, 2017. Submissions are handled through the EasyChair
conference management system, accessible from the conference web site:

Contributions must be written in English and report on original,
unpublished work not submitted for publication elsewhere (cf. IFIP’s
Author Code of Conduct, see under
Publications/Links). The submissions must not exceed the total page
number limit (see below), 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.

We solicit three kinds of submissions:

* Full papers (up to 16 pages + 2 pages references): describing thorough
and complete research results and experience reports.

* Short papers (up to 8 pages + 1 page references): describing research
in progress or opinion papers on the past of Coordination research, on
the current state of the art, or on prospects for the years to come.

* Survey papers (up to 25 pages + 2 pages references): describing
important results and successful stories that originated in the
context of COORDINATION. All the accepted papers will be presented in
a special session for the celebration of the 20th edition of the

The conference proceedings, formed by accepted submissions will be
published by Springer in the LNCS Series.
