Themes for CPA 2017


CPA is concerned with concurrency at all scales.  It aims to bridge the gap between the mathematical theory of concurrency and its practical application to the design, implementation and validation of parallel applications for embedded, multicore and distributed computing systems.  Areas of interest to the CPA community include, but are not limited to:


  - design and implementation of programming languages and environments

    for concurrent systems;


  - runtime environments for parallel and distributed applications;


  - design patterns and implementation techniques for concurrent software;


  - theoretical approaches to concurrency;


  - formal specification of concurrent systems and formal languages

    supporting these approaches, including the integration of existing

    and novel formal notations;


  - modelling and model-driven development of concurrent software



  - verification and analysis of concurrent systems;


  - model-checking techniques and tools for development and analysis;


  - design and effective use of multicore / manycore processors and

    massively parallel computer architectures;


  - tools and languages for hardware-software co-design;


  - hardware and software approaches to reconfigurable computing;


  - the teaching of concurrency at high-school, university and

    postgraduate level;


  - concurrent applications within academia and industry, such as

    complex systems simulation, robotic control and high-performance

    network servers;


  - reports on experience with concurrency in an industrial context.



Details of how to submit papers are here:




Please also see the calls for mini-workshop proposals and informal fringe







Accepted papers will be published in the CPA 2017 Proceedings by IOS Press (in their Concurrent Systems Engineering Series).  All submissions will be refereed by an international panel of academic and industrial reviewers, with extensive feedback given to authors.  Authors retain copyright on their papers, shared with the publishers.  This means that authors have the right to reuse any material from these papers in future publications (e.g. in extended revisions for journals).


CPA runs in a single track over two and a half days, with space for approximately 20 half-hour presentations.  In addition, two evening Fringe sessions provide a forum for presenting and discussing new ideas and/or work in progress.


The conference registration fee (covering admission to all sessions, one copy of the Proceedings, coffee/tea breaks, lunches and evening meals, including the conference dinner) will be announced on the registration page shortly.  Delegates are responsible for booking their own accommodation: a range of hotels will be listed on the location page.  A limited number of bursaries will be available to support students attending the conference – please see the registration page details:
