EXPRESS/SOS 2017 - last CfP - Deadline Approaching

by Kirstin Peters, June 17, 2017

Combined 24th International Workshop on Expressiveness in Concurrency
and 14th Workshop on Structural Operational Semantics

Submission of papers: Friday June 23, 2017

September 04, 2017, Berlin (Germany)
Affiliated with CONCUR 2017

Submission of papers:    Friday June 23, 2017


We are happy two announce an invited tutorial in addition to the already announced invited talk. Accordingly, we will welcome two invited speakers: Mohammad Mousavi and Rob van Glabbeek


The EXPRESS workshop series aims at bringing together researchers interested in the expressiveness of various formal systems and semantic notions, particularly in the field of concurrency. The SOS workshop series aims at being a forum for researchers, students and practitioners interested in new developments, and directions for future investigation, in the field of structural operational semantics.

Since 2012, the EXPRESS and SOS communities have joined forces and organised a combined EXPRESS/SOS workshop on the formal semantics of systems and programming concepts, and on the expressiveness of mathematical models of computation.

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

  • expressiveness and comparison of models of computation (process algebras, event structures, Petri nets, rewrite systems)
  • expressiveness and comparison of programming models (distributed, component-based, object-oriented, service-oriented);
  • logics for concurrency (modal logics, probabilistic and stochastic logics, temporal logics and resource logics);
  • analysis techniques for concurrent systems;
  • theory of structural operational semantics (meta-theory, category-theoretic approaches, congruence results);
  • comparison of structural operational semantics to other formal semantics approaches
  • applications and case studies of structural operational semantics;
  • software tools that automate, or are based on, structural operational semantics.


We solicit two types of submissions:

  • Full papers (up to 15 pages).
  • Short papers (up to 5 pages, not included in the workshop proceedings)

Simultaneous submission to journals, conferences or other workshops is only allowed for short papers; full papers must be unpublished.

All submissions should adhere to the EPTCS format (, and submission is performed through the EXPRESS/SOS 2017 EasyChair server (

The final versions of accepted full papers will be published in EPTCS.
