Call for Papers

The purpose of the CONCUR conferences is to bring together researchers working on the theory of concurrency and its applications.

Submissions are solicited in all areas of semantics, logics, and verification techniques for concurrent systems. The 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 models or classes of systems (such as circuits, synchronous systems, real time and hybrid systems, stochastic systems, data bases, mobile and migrating systems, parametric protocols, biologically inspired systems).
  • 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, and abstract machines).

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract; 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 submission to journals or other conferences with published proceedings is not allowed.

Authors are required to submit a paper title and a short abstract before submitting the extended abstract. The short abstract should not exceed 200 words, and it should be entered in ASCII at the conference submission site. The extended abstract should not exceed 15 pages, and it should be formatted according to Springer-Verlag LNCS guidelines. If necessary, the extended abstract may be supplemented with a clearly marked appendix, which will be reviewed at the discretion of the program committee. The link for submission will be accessible from the Concur 2007 web site.
