                                  co-located with DAIS'06 & FMOODS'06

   Bologna, Italy
                                                      14-16 June 2006


                                                      IMPORTANT DATES

                  * Submission of abstract: 10 January 2006
                  * Submission of papers: 17 January 2006

                                                      CONFERENCE GOALS

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.

                                                    PREVIOUS EDITIONS

The previous editions of COORDINATION took place in Cesena (Italy),
Berlin (Germany), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Limassol (Cyprus), York
(UK), Pisa (Italy) and Namur (Belgium). More details are available at

                                                    TOPICS OF INTEREST

They include but are not limited to:

* Theoretical models and foundations for coordination: component
    composition, concurrency, mobility, dynamic aspects of coordination,
    emergent behavior.
* 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.
* Multiagent systems and coordination: models, languages,
* Dynamic software architectures: mobile code and agents,
    configuration, reconfiguration, self-organization.
* Coordination and modern distributed computing: Web services,
    peer-to-peer networks, grid computing, context-awareness, ubiquitous
* Programming languages, middleware, tools, and environments for the
    development of coordinated applications
* Industrial relevance of coordination and software architectures:
    programming in the large, domain-specific software architectures and
    coordination models, case studies.
* Interdisciplinary aspects of coordination


Proceedings of previous editions of this conference were published by
Springer, in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series and
are available as LNCS volumes 1061, 1282, 1594, 1906, 2315, 2949 and
3454. The intention is to continue this series.

                                              SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

Authors are invited to submit full papers electronically in PostScript
or PDF using a two-phase online submission process. Registration of
the paper information and abstract (max. 250 words) must be completed
before 10 January 2006. Submission of the full paper is due no later
than 17 January 2006. Further instructions on the submission procedure
will be published at

Submissions must be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines (see and must not exceed 15
pages in length. Papers that are not in the requested format or
significantly exceed the mandated length may be rejected without going
through the review phase.

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.

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

                                                  CONFERENCE LOCATION

The conference will be hosted by the Department of Computer Science
of the University of Bologna.
