                             CONCUR 2005

         16th International Conference on Concurrency Theory

              San Francisco, CA, USA, August 23-26, 2005


CONCUR 2005, the 16th International Conference on Concurrency Theory,
will take place in San Francisco, California, on August 23-26, 2005.
Eleven workshops will be held in affiliation with CONCUR 2005.

IMPORTANT: The early registration deadline is July 20th.

The purpose of the CONCUR series of conferences is to bring together
researchers, developers, and students in order to advance the theory
of concurrency, and promote its applications (in a broad
sense). Topics include (but are not limited to):

  * Basic models and logics of concurrent and distributed computation
    (such as process algebras, Petri nets, domain-theoretic or
    game-theoretic models, modal and temporal logics).

  * Specialized or enriched models (such as circuits, synchronous
    systems, real-time and hybrid systems, stochastic systems,
    databases, mobile and migrating systems, parametric protocols,
    security protocols).

  * Related verification techniques and tools (such as state-space
    exploration, model-checking, synthesis, abstraction, automated
    deduction, testing).

  * Related programming models (such as distributed, constraints or
    object-oriented, graph rewriting, as well as associated type
    systems, static analyses, abstract machines, and environments).

CONCUR 2005 features four invited talks:

    Rajeev Alur (UPenn, joint CONCUR/SPIN speaker):
    "The benefits of exposing calls and returns"

    Luca Cardelli (Microsoft Research, Cambridge):
    "A Compositional Approach to the Stochastic Dynamics of Gene

    Christos Papadimitriou (UC Berkeley):
    "Games Other People Play"

    Dawson Engler (Stanford University, joint CONCUR/SPIN speaker):
     Title to be announced.

In addition to these invited talks, 38 papers have been selected for
presentation at CONCUR 2005; the preliminary program is available at
the conference web site (http://www.soe.ucsc.edu/concur05/).
