18th IFIP International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages
Heraklion, Greece, 06/06/2016–08/06/2016

COORDINATION 2016 is the premier forum for publishing research results and experience reports on software technologies for collaboration and coordination in concurrent, distributed, and complex systems. The key focus of the conference is the quest for high-level abstractions that can capture interaction patterns and mechanisms occurring at all levels of the software architecture, up to the end-user domain. COORDINATION 2016 seeks high-quality contributions on the usage, study, formal analysis, design, and implementation of languages, models, and techniques for coordination in distributed, concurrent, pervasive, and parallel software-intensive computing systems. COORDINATION 2016 seeks as well to adapt and integrate traditional COORDINATION techniques in the realm of multi-agent systems (MAS), which typically involve more coarse-grained (cognitive, intelligent, goal-oriented) components.
