                                                      Second Call for Papers

                                                          COORDINATION 2000


      Fourth International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages

                                                          Limassol, Cyprus

                                                      11-13 September 2000

The need for increased programmer productivity and rapid development
of complex systems provide the pragmatic motivation for the
development of coordination languages and models. The intellectual
excitement associated with such endeavors is rooted in the decades-old
desire to leverage off increasingly higher levels of
abstractions. Coordination-based methods provide a clean separation
between individual software components and their interaction within
the overall software organization. This separation makes large
applications more tractable, supports global analysis, and enhances
reuse of software.

Building on the success of the last three editions, this conference
provides a forum for the growing community of researchers interested
in models, languages, and implementation techniques for coordination.


Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

      * Theoretical models and foundations for coordination: component
          composition, concurrency, mobility, dynamic aspects of
      * Specification, refinement, and analysis of software architectures:
          patterns and styles, verification of functional and non-functional
      * Coordination, architectural, and interface definition languages:
          implementation, interoperability, heterogeneity.
      * Agent-oriented languages: formal models for interacting agents.
      * Dynamic software architectures: mobile agents, configuration,
      * Tools and environments for the development of coordinated
          applications: integration within the development process.
      * Industrial relevance of coordination and software architectures:
          programming in the large, domain-specific software architectures
          coordination models, case studies.


The conference proceedings will be published by Springer, in the LNCS
(Lecture Notes in Computer Science) series.

Proceedings of the previous editions of this conference are also
in the LNCS series: volumes 1061, 1282 and 1594.

                                                    Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit full papers (in English, up to 6000
words) electronically in PostScript or PDF using a two phase online
submission process. First, registration of the paper and an abstract
of no more than 250 words must be complete before 7 April 2000. After
successfully completeing this, you will receive a url through which to
submit your paper, due no later than 14 April 2000.

The authors' instructions provided by Springer should be followed. A
link can be found from the conference web page.

Simultaneous or similar submissions to other conferences or journals
are not allowed.

Submissions should explicitly state their contribution and their
relevance to the theme of the conference. Other criteria for selection
will be originality, significance, correctness, and clarity.

                                                        Conference Location

The conference will be held in Limassol, the most popular and lively
city of Cyprus, which is located on the southern coast of the
island. The conference venue will be a five-star hotel on the coast.
