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

2019 Proceedings in EPTCS: http://eptcs.web.cse.unsw.edu.au/content.cgi?PLACES2019

Applications today are built using numerous interacting services; soon off-the-shelf CPUs will host thousands of cores, and sensor networks will be composed from a large number of processing units. Many applications need to make effective use of thousands of computing nodes. At some level of granularity, computation in such systems is inherently concurrent and communication-centred. PLACES aims to offer a forum where researchers from different fields exchange new ideas on one of the central challenges for programming: the development of programming methodologies and infrastructures where concurrency and distribution are the norm rather than a marginal concern.

PLACES has had 10 previous iterations, co-located with ETAPS; this will be the eleventh edition.

Call for Papers

The development of effective programming methodologies for this increasingly parallel landscape of hardware and infrastructure demands exploration and understanding of a wide variety of foundational and practical ideas. The International Workshop on Programming Language Approaches to Concurrency- and Communication-cEntric Software (PLACES) is dedicated to work in this area. The workshop offers a forum for researchers from different fields to exchange new ideas about these challenges to modern and future programming, where concurrency and distribution are the norm rather than a marginal concern.

Submissions are invited in the general area of programming language approaches to concurrency, communication and distribution, ranging from foundational issues, through language implementations, to applications and case studies. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by a minimum of three reviewers, with the aim of allocating at least one expert reviewer. Papers are reviewed based on their novelty, clarity, and technical soundness. Submissions must not be submitted for publication elsewhere and must be formatted in EPTCS format, containing a maximum of 8 pages (with no restriction on bibliography or appendices, which the reviewers need not read). Accepted papers will be published as an issue of EPTCS.

After the workshop, there will be a special issue of JLAMP dedicated to PLACES 2019. Authors of PLACES 2019 will be invited to submit extended versions of their workshop papers. There will also be an open call for submissions to this special issue.
