Conference Focus

The International Conference on Application of Concurrency to System Design
(ACSD) serves as a forum for disseminating theoretical results with
application potential and advanced methods and tools for the design of
complex concurrent systems. While there are already quite a few success
stories in the field, there is still a strong need to bring theory and
practice closer together. The conference aims at cross-fertilizing both
theoretical and applied research on topics including, but not limited to,
the following:

  * Design methods, tools and techniques based on models of computation and
    concurrency (data-flow models, communicating automata, Petri nets,
    process algebras, state charts, MSCs, etc.), (performance) analysis,
    verification, testing and synthesis.

  * Hardware / software co-design, platform-based design, component-based
    design, refinement techniques, hardware / software abstractions,
    co-simulation and verification

  * Synchronous and asynchronous design, asynchronous circuits, globally
    asynchronous locally synchronous systems, interface design, multi-clock
    systems, functional and timing verification.

  * Concurrency issues in Systems on Chips, massively parallel architectures,
    networks on chip, task and communication scheduling, resource, memory and
    power management, fault-tolerance and Quality of Service issues.

  * (Industrial) case studies of general interest, gaming applications,
    consumer electronics and multimedia, automotive systems, (bio-)medical
    applications, internet and grid computing, etc.

  * Special session on networked systems: concurrency issues in ad-hoc, mobile
    and wireless networking, sensor networks, communication protocols, cross-
    layer optimization, resource, power and Quality of Service management,
    fault-tolerance, concurrency-related security issues.

  * Special session on concurrency in Business Process Management: business
    process modeling, simulation and verification, (distributed) workflow
    execution, business process (de-)composition, interorganizational and
    heterogeneous workflow systems, computer-supported collaborative work
    systems, web services

  * Special session on synthesis and control of concurrent systems:
    (compositional) modeling and design, (modular) synthesis and analysis,
    distributed simulation and implementation, (distributed) controller
    synthesis, adaptive systems, supervisory control

Regular Papers

  Submitted papers should be in IEEE Computer Society Press 2-column format
  (ftp://pubftp.computer.org/Press/Outgoing/proceedings/instruct.pdf), with
  no more than 10 pages. The cover page should include the corresponding
  author, physical and e-mail addresses, phone and FAX numbers, and an
  abstract of at most 60 words. The deadline for submission of regular papers
  is *21 January 2007*. Paper submission will be handled electronically.
  Submitted papers should describe original work that has not been previously
  published and is not under review for publication elsewhere. More
  information can be obtained through the conference web-pages.
