Special Issue

Aims and Scope

This special issue of the Journal of Logical and Algebraic Methods in Programming is devoted to the themes of the Research Seminar on Open Problems in Concurrency Theory. It is an open call for papers, therefore both participants of the research seminar and other authors are encouraged to submit their contributions.

Submissions are invited in the field of concurrency theory; specific topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

- Models of concurrency
- Process calculi
- Behavioral relations and metrics
- Expressiveness
- Programming languages and types
- Quantitative and security aspects
- Verification, testing, and synthesis

Papers surveying important open problems in concurrency theory are also welcome.

Submission Guidelines

We expect original submissions of 20-30 pages, which present high-quality contributions that have not been previously published in another journal and that are not simultaneously submitted for publication elsewhere. Longer papers will be considered if there is a clear justification for why additional pages are necessary; prospective authors should contact the guest editors to discuss this.

Each paper will undergo a thorough evaluation by at least two reviewers. The authors will have some time to incorporate the comments of the reviewers and submit a revised version of their papers, which will be evaluated again by the reviewers to make a final decision.

Submissions will be handled through the Elsevier Editorial System (EES) and can be uploaded from the JLAMP webpage. Authors must select “SI: OPCT 2014″ when they reach the “Article Type” step in the submission process. Contributions should be typeset in PDF format and comply with the JLAMP author guidelines. Accepted manuscripts can be posted to arXiv.
