*** SCOPE ***

The rise of multicore CPUs, manycore GPUs, and other heterogeneous
accelerator devices, presents exciting new opportunities for building
more efficient computing systems.  But with these opportunities comes
a challenge: concurrent programming is notoriously difficult, and
advances in analysis, programming and verification in the context of
concurrency are required to meet this challenge.

There has been a surge of concurrency-related research activity from
different viewpoints, such as the rethinking of programming
abstractions and memory models; standardization and formalization of
commonly used APIs and libraries; and investigating new forms of
hardware support for parallel processing. While developing tools for
verifying and debugging concurrent systems has been an important theme
in the verification community for some time, we believe that formal
verification research can go beyond checking existing code and
systems, and play a role in identifying suitable abstractions for

The goal of the annual (EC)2 workshop is thus to bring together
researchers from the verification and program analysis community with
experts who are involved, on the one hand, in developing multicore
architectures, programming languages, or concurrency libraries, and on
the other hand, in distributed computing and concurrency
theory. Ultimately, such a diverse environment should stimulate
incubation of ideas leading to future concurrent system design an
verification tools that are essential in the multicore era.


We plan to have a diverse program, including invited talks,
contributed talks, tutorials, and ample time for discussion. This
is an informal workshop with no published proceedings.
At least one author of each accepted position paper must register and
attend to present the work.


We seek position papers and talk abstracts within two to five
pages. Further submission instructions are on the workshop webpage.
