Coordination'97

Second International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages

Case Study Workshop

Berlin, Germany

September 4, 1997

Extended deadline for submission: February 14, 1997

In conjunction with the Second International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages (COORDINATION '97), a case study workshop will be organised to bring together practitioners and researchers in the emerging area of coordination models and languages.

One of the main objectives of the workshop is to provide a forum for discussion and information exchange between software developers and researchers, who are involved in the areas of software architecture and coordination models and languages. The workshop will be centred around an industrial case study that is described in a separate Postscript document, available in A4 and US Letter format. Care has been taken to keep the problem simple, yet containing all the issues a real world, industrial-quality system has to face. In particular, the case study addresses real-time, fault-tolerant, and adaptive behaviour.

Authors are invited to participate in the workshop by submitting either a position paper (limited to 4 pages) or a full paper (consisting of a maximum of about 15 pages) presenting and discussing a solution to the case study with emphasis on software architecture and coordination. Topics of interest are, but are not limited to,

Papers are submitted by sending 4 copies to the workshop chair at the address indicated below.
