# PLACES 2022 - First Call for Papers

The 13th edition of PLACES (Workshop on Programming Language Approaches to Concurrency and Communication-cEntric Software) will be co-located with ETAPS 2022 in Munich, Germany on 3rd April 2022.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For over a decade, PLACES has been a popular forum for researchers from different fields to exchange new ideas about challenges to modern and future programming, where concurrency and distribution are the norm rather than a marginal concern.

## Submissions Guidelines

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. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by a minimum of three reviewers, with the aim of allocating at least one expert reviewer. Papers are reviewed based on their novelty, clarity, and technical soundness. Submissions must not be submitted elsewhere and must be formatted in EPTCS format, containing a maximum of 8 pages (with no restriction on bibliography or appendices, which the reviewers need not read). The proceedings of PLACES 2022 will be published as a volume of EPTCS. Submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=places22
