Call for Papers

Concur 2004, the 15th International Conference on Concurrency Theory, takes place at the Royal Society, London, from Tuesday 31 August - Friday 3 September 2004.

The purpose of the CONCUR conferences is to bring together researchers, developers and students in order to advance the theory of concurrency, and promote its applications. Interest in this topic is continuously growing, as a consequence of the importance and ubiquity of concurrent systems and their applications, and of the scientific relevance of their foundations.

Submissions are solicited in all areas of semantics, logics and verification techniques for concurrent systems. Principal topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Basic models and logics of concurrent and distributed computation (such as process algebras, Petri nets, domain theoretic or game theoretic models, modal and temporal logics).
  • Specialized or enriched models (such as circuits, synchronous systems, real time and hybrid systems, stochastic systems, data bases, mobile and migrating systems, parametric protocols, security protocols).
  • Related verification techniques and tools (such as state-space exploration, model-checking, synthesis, abstraction, automated deduction, testing).
  • Related programming models (such as distributed, constraints or object oriented, graph rewriting, as well as associated type systems, static analyses, abstract machines, and environments).

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract not exceeding 15 pages electronically via the web submission form at the conference's web site Submissions will be evaluated by the program committee for inclusion in the proceedings, which will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Papers must contain original contributions, be clearly written, and include appropriate reference to and comparison with related work. Simultaneous submissions to other conferences are not allowed.

There will be a special issue of the journal Theoretical Computer Science associated with Concur 2004.
