=== Scope ===
Interaction and Concurrency Experiences (ICEs) is a series of international scientific meetings oriented to theoretical computer science researchers with special interest in models, verification, tools and programming primitives for complex interactions.
The general scope of the venue includes theoretical and applied aspects of interactions and the synchronization mechanisms used among components of concurrent/distributed systems, but every experience focuses on a different specific topic (see "Previous Editions" at the end of this call) related to several areas of computer science in the broad spectrum ranging from formal specification and analysis to studies inspired by emerging computational models.
The theme of ICE 2012 is
***Distributed coordination, execution models, and resilient interaction***.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Process algebra and coordination: transformation, analysis and implementation - Models for distributed coordination and semantics - Techniques and tools for specification, analysis, verification of resilient interaction - Languages, protocols and mechanisms for sound distributed coordination - Logics and types for interactions - Comparison among different coordination and/or execution models - Expressive power of coordination languages and execution models - Formal semantics of coordination languages - Formal verification of distributed coordinated architectures - Relating different semantic models for coordination languages
=== Selection Procedure ===
Since its 1st edition in 2008, the distinguishing feature of ICE has been an innovative paper selection mechanism based on an interactive discussion amongst authors and PC members.
During the review phase, each submitted paper is published on a Wiki and associated with a discussion forum whose access will be restricted to the authors and all the PC members who do not have a conflict of interests with the paper. The PC members post comments/questions that the authors shall reply to.
As witnessed by the past four editions of ICE, this procedure considerably improves the accuracy of the feedback from reviews, the fairness of the selection, the quality of camera-ready papers, and the discussion during the workshop.
=== The Public Wiki ===
After the notification, the accepted papers will be published on a public forum, in order to initiate public discussions that will trigger and stimulate the scientific debate at the workshop. We believe that this will drive the workshop discussions and let prospective participants interact with each other much earlier than in more traditional events.
=== Submission Guidelines ===
Papers must report previously unpublished work and not be simultaneously submitted to other conferences/workshops with refereed proceedings. The ICE 2012 post-proceedings will be published in Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (http://eptcs.org/).
Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format via EasyChair (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ice2012) and should not exceed 15 pages with the EPTCS style (http://style.eptcs.org/).
Accepted papers must be presented at the workshop by one of the authors.
=== Special Issue ===
Full versions of the best papers selected by the PC will be invited to appear in a special issue of the journal of Scientific Annals of Computer Science (http://www.info.uaic.ro/bin/Annals/). Such contributions will be regularly peer-reviewed according to the standard journal policy, but they will be handled in a shorter time than regular submissions.

The previous four editions of ICE have been held on * July 6th, 2008 in Reykjavik, Iceland with focus on Synchronous and Asynchronous Interactions in Concurrent/ Distributed Systems, co-located with ICALP'08. The post-proceedings were published in ENTCS (vol.229-3). * August 31st, 2009 in Bologna, Italy with focus on Structured Interactions, co-located with CONCUR'09. The post-proceedings were published in EPTCS (vol.12) and a special issue of MSCS is in preparation. * June 10th, 2010 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands with focus on Guaranteed Interactions, co-located with DisCoTec'10. The post-proceedings were published in EPTCS (vol.38) and selected papers appeared in a joint special issue of SACS (with CAMPUS'10 and CS2BIO'10, Vol. XXI). * June 9th, 2011 in Reykjavik, Iceland with focus on Reliable and Contract-based Interactions, co-located with DisCoTec'11.
