Call for Papers
Modern information systems rely increasingly on combining concurrent, distributed,
mobile, adaptive, reconfigurable and heterogeneous components. New models,
architectures, languages and 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 behaviour 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

  * Theoretical models and foundations for coordination:
      component composition, concurrency, mobility, dynamic, spatial and
      probabilistic aspects of coordination, logic, emergent behaviour, types,
  * Specification, refinement, and analysis of architectures:
      patterns and styles, verification of functional and non-functional
      properties, including performance and security aspects;
  * Dynamic software architectures:
      distributed mobile code, configuration, reconfiguration, networked
      computing, parallel, high-performance and cloud computing
  * Nature- and bio-inspired approaches to coordination;
  * Coordination of multi-agent and collective systems:
      models, languages, infrastructures, self-adaptation, self-organisation,
      distributed solving, collective intelligence and emerging behaviour;
  * Coordination and modern distributed computing:
      web services, peer-to-peer networks, grid computing, context-awareness,
      ubiquitous computing, mobile computing;
  * Coordination platforms for infrastructures of emergent new application domains
    like IoT, fog- and edge-computing;
  * Cybersecurity aspects of coordinated systems, coordinated approaches to
  * Programming methodologies, languages, middleware, tools, and environments
    for the development and verification of coordinated applications;
  * Tools, languages and methodologies for secure coordination;
  * Industrial relevance of coordination and software architectures:
      programming in the large, domain-specific software architectures and
      coordination models, case studies;
  * Interdisciplinary aspects of coordination;
  * Industry-led efforts in coordination and case studies.

We invite you to submit:
* Regular long papers (7-15 pages, not counting references):
    describing thorough and complete research results and experience reports.
* Regular short papers (4-6 pages, not counting references):
    describing research in progress or opinion papers on the past of COORDINATION
    research, on the current state of the art, or on prospects for the years to
* Short tool papers (4-6 pages, not counting references):
    describing technological artefacts in the scope of the research topics of
    COORDINATION. Short tool papers are not required to provide an account of
    theoretical foundations and are not required to present the design and
    implementation concerns. They should provide a clear account of the tool’s
    functionality and discuss the tool’s practical capabilities. The paper must
    contain a link to a publicly downloadable MPEG-4 demo video of at most 10
    minutes length.
* Long tool papers (7-15 pages, not counting references):
    describing technological artefacts in the scope of the research topics of
    COORDINATION. A full-length tool paper should provide a brief account of the
    theoretical foundations (including relevant citations), present the design and
    implementation concerns (possibly including software architecture and core
    data structures), provide a clear account of the tool’s functionality, discuss
    the tool’s practical capabilities (possibly with reference to the type and
    size of problems it can handle), and (when applicable) report on realistic
    case studies (possibly providing a rigorous experimental evaluation). Papers
    that present extensions to existing tools should clearly describe the
    improvements or extensions with respect to previously published versions of
    the tool (possibly providing data on enhancements in terms of resources and
    capabilities). The paper must contain a link to a publicly downloadable MPEG-4
    demo video of at most 10 minutes length.
* Survey papers (16-25 pages, not counting references):
    describing important results and success stories that originated in the
    context of COORDINATION.

Important dates
* Abstract submission: February 11, 2023

* Paper submission: February 18, 2023

* Paper notification: March 31, 2023

The conference proceedings, formed by accepted submissions from any category, will be published by Springer in LNCS-IFIP volumes.

Special issues
Following the tradition of previous editions of COORDINATION, depending on the quality and number of the submissions, COORDINATION 2023 will host special issues of selected papers in reputable journals like the journal of Science of Computer Programming’s Software Track for tool papers and the journal of Logical Methods in Computer Science for the remaining categories.
