Conference FocusThe International Conference on Application of Concurrency to System Design (ACSD) serves as a forum for disseminating theoretical results with application potential and advanced methods and tools for the design of complex concurrent systems. While there are already quite a few success stories in the field, there is still a strong need to bring theory and practice closer together. The conference aims at cross-fertilizing both theoretical and applied research on topics including, but not limited to, the following:
- Design methods, tools and techniques based on models of computation and
concurrency (data-flow models, communicating automata, Petri nets,
process algebras, state charts, MSCs, etc.), (performance) analysis,
verification, testing and synthesis.
- Hardware / software co-design, platform-based design, component-based design, refinement techniques, hardware / software abstractions, co-simulation and verification.
- Synchronous and asynchronous design, asynchronous circuits, globally asynchronous locally synchronous systems, interface design, multi-clock systems, functional and timing verification.
- Concurrency issues in Systems on Chips, massively parallel architectures, networks on chip, task and communication scheduling, resource, memory and power management, fault-tolerance and Quality of Service issues.
- (Industrial) case studies of general interest, gaming applications, consumer electronics and multimedia, automotive systems, (bio-)medical applications, internet and grid computing, etc.
- Concurrency issues in ad-hoc, mobile and wireless networking, sensor networks, communication protocols, cross-layer optimization, resource and power management, fault-tolerance, concurrency-related security issues.
- Business process modelling, simulation and verification, (distributed) workflow execution, business process (de-)composition, interorganisational and heterogeneous workflow systems, computer-supported collaborative work systems, web services.
- Synthesis and control of concurrent systems, (compositional) modelling and design, (modular) synthesis and analysis, distributed simulation and implementation, (distributed) controller synthesis, adaptive systems, supervisory control.
