                                          First Call for Participation

                                                    COORDINATION 2005
    7th International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages

                                                        Namur, Belgium,
                                                      20-23 April 2005




Modern information systems rely increasingly on combining concurrent,
distributed, mobile, reconfigurable and heterogenous components. New
models, architectures, languages, verification techniques are
necessary to cope with the complexity induced by the demands of
today's software development. Coordination languages have emerged as a
successful approach, in that they provide abstractions that cleanly
separate behavior from communication, therefore increasing modularity,
simplifying reasoning, and ultimately enhancing software development.

Building on the success of the previous editions, this conference
provides a well-established forum for the growing community of
researchers interested in models, languages, architectures, and
implementation techniques for coordination.


The program of the conference can be found at


It includes two invited talks by T. Lehman (IBM Almaden Research
Center, USA) and J. Misra (University of Texas at Austin, USA) as well
as three workshops on Coordination and Organisation, Database
Interoperability, and Methods and Tools for Coordinating Concurrent,
Distributed and Mobile Systems.


The conference will be held at the Institute of Informatics,
University ot Namur, Belgium.

Capital of the Walloon Region, Namur is a beautiful city of 80.000
inhabitants. Its position at the confluent of two rivers gave it
military and economic appeal, exploited by the Roman Empire and by
many others since then. Much evidence of Namur's past can be visited
nowadays, including the citadel, one of the greatest in Europe.

Close to Brussels (60 km) and at the intersection of European railways
and highways, Namur can be easily reached by road, train, and plane.

Information about accommodation (reserving rooms in hotels specially
booked for Coordination 2005 attendees) and registration for
Coordination 2005 and the affiliated workshops is available at
