Themes for CPA 2014

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, and formal languages supporting these approaches, including the integration of existing and novel formal notations;
  • modelling and model-driven development of concurrent software architectures;
  • verification and analysis of concurrent systems;
  • model-checking techniques and tools for development and analysis;
  • design of multicore processors and parallel computer architectures;
  • theoretical approaches, 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.

CPA is an open-access conference: accepted papers will be published by Open Channel Publishing Ltd. in the CPA 2014 Proceedings, and made freely available from the WoTUG papers archive. 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 days, with space for approximately 25 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 will be approximately 330 covering admission to all sessions, one copy of the Proceedings, coffee/tea breaks, lunches and evening meals (including the conference dinner). En-suite accommodation and breakfasts (three nights) will be bookable separately at St. Anne's College (70 per night). A limited number of bursaries will be available to support PhD students attending the conference – details will be given on the registration page nearer the time.
