Call For Papers


The Eleventh International Conference on Application of Concurrency to System Design

1st Call for papers and announcement

Kanazawa, Japan, June 20-24, 2011

Dates and Venue

20-24h of June 2011, Kanazawa, Japan

Conference Focus

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 (GALS) 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, concurrency-related security issues;
* Business process modelling, simulation and verification, (distributed) workflow execution, business process (de-) composition, inter-organisational 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.

All papers should be in IEEE Computer Society Press 2-column format. See the Paper Formatting Instructions available at the section "Information for Authors" of Papers should be submitted via EasyChair:

The separate cover page should include the corresponding author’s physical and e-mail addresses, phone and FAX numbers (including the country code), the type of submission (regular, short or tool paper), and an abstract of at most 60 words.

The deadline for paper submission of papers is January 17, 2011. The page limits are: 10 pages for regular papers, 6 pages for short papers, and 5 pages for tool papers. Authors are requested to submit a 60 words abstract by January 10, 2011.

Submitted papers should describe original work that has not been previously published and is not under review for publication elsewhere. Acceptance of a tool paper implies that a tool demonstration should be given at the conference. Further information can be obtained through the conference web-site:

Proceedings containing accepted and invited papers are planned to be published by IEEE Computer Society Press.

Best Paper Award
A best paper award will be given to the author(s) of the best regular paper presented at ACSD 2011.
