WoTUG - The place for concurrent processes

Communicating Process Architectures

Communicating Process Architectures 2014, the 36th. WoTUG conference on concurrent and parallel systems, takes place from Sunday August 24th to Wednesday August 27th 2014 and is hosted by the Department of Computer Science, University of Oxford. Accommodation and evening Fringe sessions will be at St. Anne's College, a few minutes walk from the Department.

About WoTUG

WoTUG provides a forum for the discussion and promotion of concurrency ideas, tools and products in computer science. It organises specialist workshops and annual conferences that address key concurrency issues at all levels of software and hardware granularity. WoTUG aims to progress the leading state of the art in:

  • theory (programming models, process algebra, semantics, ...);
  • practice (multicore processors and run-times, clusters, clouds, libraries, languages, verification, model checking, ...);
  • education (at school, undergraduate and postgraduate levels, ...);
  • applications (complex systems, modelling, supercomputing, embedded systems, robotics, games, e-commerce, ...);
and to stimulate discussion and ideas on the roles concurrency will play in the future:
  • for the next generation of scalable computer infrastructure (hard and soft) and application, where scaling means the ability to ramp up functionality (stay in control as complexity increases) as well as physical metrics (such as absolute performance and response times);
  • for system integrity (dependability, security, safety, liveness, ...);
  • for making things simple.
Of course, neither of the above sets of bullets are exclusive.

Adding Mobility to Networked Channel-Types

By Mario Schweigler

This paper reports the specification of a sound concept for the mobility of network-channel-types in KROC.net. The syntax and semantics of KROC.net have also been modified in order to integrate it more seamlessly into the occam-pi language. These new features are currently in the process of being implemented. Recent developments in occam-pi and KROC (such as mobile processes and live / dead channel-type-ends) are described, together with their impact on KROC.net. This paper gives an overview of the recent developments in KROC.net, and presents its proposed final semantics, as well as the proposed interface between the KROC.net infrastructure and the KROC compiler.
