ETAPS 2019
Sat 6 - Thu 11 April 2019 Prague, Czech Republic

APIs are software interfaces describing the services, functions or procedures offered by a software component to other components. Behavioural Types are a suite of technologies that elevate flat API descriptions to graph structures describing the intended order of usage. This permits automated analyses for correct API compositions to provide guarantees such as service compliance, deadlock freedom, dynamic adaptation in the presence of failure and load balancing. The BehAPI project aims to bring the existing prototype tools based on these technologies to mainstream programming languages and other API-based technologies.

This workshop will present ongoing research on behavioural types to assist the development of correct protocol-based systems in the large, by members of the project and by other researchers working in the area. The workshop shall be an open event with invited and selected talks. The main aim of the workshop is to foster the dissemination of work, facilitate discussions and enable new potential collaborations. As a result, there will only be a light selection mechanism without formal proceedings.

Call for Papers

We solicit the submission of talk abstracts on either theoretical or applied aspects dealing with API-based software construction, including case studies or experience reports. Relevant topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Type Systems and Program Logics
  • Programming Language Design and Implementation
  • Semantic Models of Computation such as process algebra and automata
  • Testing, Model Checking and Theorem Proving
  • Runtime Monitoring, Verification, Enforcement and Adaptation

Please indicate whether yout talk is a short (15mins), medium (25mins) or long one (45mins). Presentations describing ongoing work-in-progress are also encouraged. Abstract submission will undergo a light reviewing process and involves a firm commitment that one of the authors of the work will attend and participate in the workshop in case the abstract is accepted. There will be no formal proceedings.
