=========================================== FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS Combined 26th International Workshop on Expressiveness in Concurrency and 16th Workshop on Structural Operational Semantics (EXPRESS/SOS 2019)
Amsterdam (The Netherlands) August 26, 2019, Affiliated with CONCUR 2019
Submission deadline (full and short papers): Friday, June 21, 2019 ===========================================
== SCOPE AND TOPICS 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 2019 include, but are not limited to:
- expressiveness and rigorous comparisons between models of computation (process algebras, event structures, Petri nets, rewrite systems) - expressiveness and rigorous comparisons between programming languages and models (distributed, component-based, object-oriented, service-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 and formal verification - reversible computation - knowledge representation
== SUBMISSION GUIDELINES: 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 (http://www.eptcs.org). Simultaneous submission to journals, conferences or other workshops is only allowed for short papers; full papers must be unpublished.
Submission is performed through EasyChair: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=expresssos2019
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.
== SPECIAL ISSUE 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 2019.
