Communicating Process Architectures 2016

Communicating Process Architectures 2016, the 38th. WoTUG conference on concurrent and parallel systems, takes place from Sunday August 21st. to Tuesday August 23rd. 2016 and is hosted by the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen. Conference sessions will take place at the Hans Christian Ørsted Institute, which is located here. The evening Fringe sessions will be at the Caféen Bar, which is just a few minutes walk from the Ørsted buildings.
For information on CPA's areas of interest, please see the Call for Papers. All submissions will be refereed by an international panel of academic and industrial reviewers, with extensive feedback given to authors. The Proceedings of CPA 2016 will be published by IOS Press (along with the delayed 2015 proceedings in one volume).
CPA runs in a single track over two days, with space for approximately 15 half-hour presentations. In addition, one evening Fringe session provides a forum for presenting and discussing new ideas and/or work in progress. We are also calling for mini-workshop proposals, following their successful introduction in 2014 and 2015. A limited number of bursaries will be available to support PhD students attending the conference – details are on the registration page.
For details on the conference venue and accommodation, see Location.

The CPA Conference Series

WoTUG provides a forum for the discussion and promotion of concurrency in computer science, organising an annual conference and specialist workshops. CPA 2016 is the sixteenth conference under the name of Communicating Process Architectures, and the thirty-eight in this series of WoTUG conferences.
The primary theme of the CPA conference series is concurrency — at all levels of granularity, in both software and hardware. The CPA conference series aims to bridge the gap between the mathematical theory of concurrency, using process algebras such as CSP to model and analyse complex concurrent systems, and the practice of parallel software engineering, building efficient, reliable software for embedded, multicore and distributed computing systems.
See the conference pages for links to the web pages for conferences in this series back to 1991. Papers from the Proceedings are archived in the WoTUG Paper Database.
