Conference Focus

The International Conference on Application of Concurrency to System Design
(ACSD) serves as a forum for disseminating theoretical results with
application potential and advanced methods and tools for the design of
complex concurrent systems. While there are already quite a few success
stories in the field, there is still a strong need to bring theory and
practice closer together. The conference aims at cross-fertilising 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 systems, interface design, multi-clock
    systems, functional and timing verification.

  * Concurrency issues in systems-on-a chip, massively parallel architectures,
    networks-on-a-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, resource and
    power management, fault-tolerance, concurrency-related security issues.

  * Business process modelling, simulation and verification, (distributed)
    workflow execution, business process (de-)composition, interorganisational
    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.

Regular Papers

  Submitted papers should be in IEEE Computer Society Press 2-column format
  (ftp://pubftp.computer.org/Press/Outgoing/proceedings/instruct.pdf).
  ***
  Both long papers (7 to 10 pages) and short papers (5 to 6 pages) can be 
  submitted. 
  Authors submitting long papers should indicate in their submission 
  whether they would be prepared to reduce the length of their submissions 
  to 6 pages on the recommendation of the programme committee.
  ***
  The cover page should include the corresponding
  author, physical and e-mail addresses, phone and FAX numbers, and an
  abstract of at most 60 words. The deadline for submission of regular papers
  is *4 January 2008*. Paper submission will be handled electronically.
  Submitted papers should describe original work that has not been previously
  published and is not under review for publication elsewhere. 

Tool Papers and Demonstrations

  Submissions for tool demonstrations should be no more than 5 pages in IEEE
  CS Press format and should be submitted by *4 January 2008*. Tool papers will
  be reviewed by the programme committee. Acceptance of a tool paper implies
  that a tool demonstration should be given at the conference. For facility
  arrangements and questions, please contact Xiaobing Wang
  (xbwang@mail.xidian.edu.cn).

Submissions 
    
  Both regular and tool papers should be submitted to ACSD 2008 via Easy Chair:
