Combined 20th International Workshop on Expressiveness in Concurrency
and 10th Workshop on Structural Operational Semantics (EXPRESS/SOS 2013)

August 26, 2013, Buenos Aires (AR)
Affiliated with CONCUR 2013

Submission of abstracts:	Friday May 31, 2013
Submission of papers:	        Friday June 7, 2013


The EXPRESS workshop series aims at bringing together researchers
interested in the expressiveness of various formal systems and
semantic notions, particularly in the field of concurrency. The SOS
workshop series aims at being a forum for researchers, students and
practitioners interested in new developments, and directions for
future investigation, in the field of structural operational

In 2012, the EXPRESS and SOS communities decided to join forces and
organise a combined EXPRESS/SOS workshop. The combined workshop was a
success, so this year there will again be a combined workshop on the
semantics of systems and programming concepts, and on the
expressiveness of mathematical models of computation.

Topics of interest for this combined workshop include (but are not
limited to): 
- expressiveness and comparison of models of computation (process
 algebras, event structures, Petri nets, rewrite systems), and
 programming models (distributed, component-based, object-oriented,
 and service-oriented computing);
- logics for concurrency (modal logics, probabilistic and stochastic
 logics, temporal logics and resource logics);
- analysis techniques for concurrent systems;
- theory of structural operational semantics (metatheory,
 category-theoretic approaches, congruence results);
- comparison of structural operational semantics to other forms of semantics;
- applications of structural operational semantics;
- software tools that automate, or are based on, structural
 operational semantics.


We solicit two types of submissions:

* Full papers (up to 15 pages).
* Short papers (up to 5 pages, not included in the workshop proceedings)

Simultaneous submission to journals, conferences or other workshops is
only allowed for short papers; full papers must be unpublished.  
There is one exception to this policy: authors may submit a full paper
that is still under review for TGC 2013, provided that they inform the
chairs prior to submission and immediately withdraw their submission
if it is accepted for TGC 2013.

All submissions should adhere to the EPTCS format (http://www.eptcs.org),
and submission is performed through the EXPRESS/SOS 2013 EasyChair
server (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=expresssos2013).

The final versions of accepted full papers will be published in EPTCS.
Furthermore, authors of a selection of the accepted papers will be
invited to submit an extended version to a special issue of a
high-quality journal.
