FOCLASA 2012 is a satellite workshop of the 23rd International Conference on Concurrency Theory (CONCUR 2012). The goal is to provide a venue where researchers and practitioners on the topics given below can meet, exchange ideas and problems, identify some of the key and fundamental issues related to coordination languages and self adaptive systems, explore together and disseminate solutions.
Submissions must describe authors' original research work and their results. Description of work-in- progress with concrete results is also encouraged. The contributions should not exceed 15 pages formatted according to the style of the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS), and should be submitted as Portable Document Format (PDF) files using the EasyChair submission site:
Submitting an abstract does not put any obligation on the authors to submit a full paper. Abstracts without an accompanying full paper by the paper submission deadline are automatically considered withdrawn. The authors are, however, encouraged to explicitly withdraw their abstract, if they decide not to submit a full paper. All submissions will be reviewed by an international program committee who will make a selection among the submissions based on the novelty, soundness and applicability of the presented ideas and results. Concurrent submission to other venues (conferences, workshops or journal) and submission of papers under consideration elsewhere are not allowed. A printed version of the proceedings will be distributed among participants during the workshop. The proceedings of the workshop will be published as a volume in the Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science (EPTCS) series. Participants will give a presentation of their papers in twenty minutes, followed by a ten-minute round of questions and discussion on participants' work. Following the tradition of the past editions, we plan to have a special issue of an international scientific journal devoted to FOCLASA 2012. Selected participants will be invited to submit an extended version of their papers after the workshop. These extended versions will be reviewed by an international program committee, which will decide on their final publication on the special issue. In the last few editions of FOCLASA, a special issue of Science of Computer Programming has been dedicated to this workshop.
