Call For Papers

Combined 27th International Workshop on Expressiveness in Concurrency
and 17th Workshop on Structural Operational Semantics

Vienna (Austria)
August 31, 2020, Affiliated with CONCUR 2020

Submission deadline (full and short papers):
Friday, June 26, 2020

The EXPRESS/SOS workshop series aims at bringing together researchers
interested in the formal semantics of systems and programming
concepts, and in the expressiveness of computational models.

Topics of interest for EXPRESS/SOS 2020 include, but are not limited to:

- expressiveness and rigorous comparisons between models of
computation (process algebras, event structures, Petri nets, rewrite
- expressiveness and rigorous comparisons between programming
languages and models (distributed, component-based, object-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);
- comparisons between structural operational semantics and other
formal semantic approaches;
- applications and case studies of structural operational semantics;
- software tools that automate, or are based on, structural
operational semantics.

We especially welcome contributions bridging the gap between the above
topics and neighbouring areas, such as, for instance:
- computer security
- multi-agent systems
- programming languages
- formal verification
- reversible computation
- knowledge representation

We invite two types of submissions:
* Full papers (up to 15 pages, excluding references).
* Short papers (up to 5 pages, excluding references, not included in
the workshop proceedings)

All submissions should adhere to the EPTCS format (
Simultaneous submission to journals, conferences or other workshops is
only allowed for short papers; full papers must be unpublished.

Submission is performed through EasyChair:

The final versions of accepted full papers will be published in EPTCS.
It is understood that for each accepted submission one of the
co-authors will register to the workshop and give the talk.

There is a long tradition of special issues of reputed international
journals devoted to the very best papers presented in prior editions
of the workshop.
For instance, a special issue of Information and Computation with
selected papers from EXPRESS/SOS 2018 is currently in progress.
We will consider organizing a special issue for EXPRESS/SOS 2020.
