JLAMP special issue on Programming Language Approaches to Concurrency and Communication-cEntric Software

by Philipp Haller, June 10, 2017

This special issue of the Journal of Logical and Algebraic Methods in Programming (JLAMP) is devoted to the topics of the 10th International Workshop on Programming Language Approaches to Concurrency and Communication-cEntric Software (PLACES 2017), which took place on April 29, 2017, in Uppsala, Sweden, as part of the European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS). This is however an open call for papers; therefore, both participants of the workshop and other authors are encouraged to submit their contributions.

Aims and Scope

This special issue of the Journal of Logical and Algebraic Methods in Programming (JLAMP, https://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-logical-and-algebraic-methods-in-programming) is devoted to the topics of the 10th International Workshop on Programming Language Approaches to Concurrency and Communication-cEntric Software (PLACES 2017, http://places17.di.fc.ul.pt/), which took place on April 29, 2017, in Uppsala, Sweden, as part of the European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS). This is however an open call for papers; therefore, both participants of the workshop and other authors are encouraged to submit their contributions.

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. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Design and implementation of programming languages with first class support for concurrency and communication
  • Behavioural types, including session types
  • Concurrent data types, objects and actors
  • Verification and program analysis methods for concurrent and distributed software
  • Runtime systems for scalable management of concurrency and resource allocation
  • High-level programming abstractions addressing security concerns in concurrent and distributed programming
  • Multi- and many-core programming models, including methods for harnessing GPUs and other accelerators
  • Memory models for concurrent programming on relaxed-memory architectures
  • Integration of sequential and concurrent programming techniques
  • Use of message passing in systems software
  • Interface languages for communication and distribution
  • Novel programming methodologies for sensor networks
  • Programming language approaches to web services
  • Concurrency and communication in event processing and business process management

Submission

We expect original articles (20-30 pages) that present high-quality contributions that have not been previously published in another journal and that must not be simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. Longer papers will be considered if there is a clear justification for additional pages; authors should contact the guest editors to discuss this. Each paper will undergo a thorough evaluation by at least two reviewers. The authors will have about one month to incorporate the comments of the reviewers and submit a revised version of their papers, which will be evaluated again by the reviewers to make a final decision.

Contributions should be typeset in PDF format and must comply with JLAMP's author guidelines, which can be retrieved from the Elsevier website, https://www.elsevier.com/journals/journal-of-logical-and-algebraic-methods-in-programming/2352-2208/guide-for-authors.

Submissions are handled by the Elsevier Editorial System and can be uploaded to the JLAMP website.
