Communicating Process Architectures 2018

Comunicating Process Architectures 2018, the 40th. WoTUG conference on concurrent and parallel systems, takes place from Sunday August 19th. to Wednesday August 22rd. 2018 and is hosted by Professor Dr. Rainer Spallek, Chair of VLSI Design, Diagnostics and Architecture at Faculty of Computer Science, Technische Universität Dresden, Germany. The conference is organized by Dr. Spallek in collboration with Oliver Knodel and Uwe Mielke.
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 2018 will be published by IOS Press in their Concurrent Systems Engineering Series.
CPA runs in a single track over two and a half days, with space for approximately 20-25 half-hour presentations. In addition, two evening Fringe sessions provide a forum for presenting and discussing new ideas and/or work in progress. We are also calling for workshop proposals, following their successful introduction in 2014 and use in 2015, 2016, and 2017. 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 accomodation see the accomodation section of the registration page. See the location page for conference venues.

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 2018 is the eighteenth conference under the name of Communicating Process Architectures, and the fortieth 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 1984. Papers from the Proceedings are archived in the WoTUG Paper Database.
