    17th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC 2002) Special Track on Coordination Models, Languages and Applications

    March 10-14, 2002 Madrid, SPAIN

    ( http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2002/ )

    SAC 2002 ~~~~~~~~ Over the past sixteen years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing (SAC) has become a primary forum for applied computer scientists and application developers from around the world to interact and present their work. SAC 2002 is sponsored by the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP) and is presented in cooperation with other ACM Special Interest Groups. SAC 2002 is hosted by the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain.

    Authors are invited to contribute original papers in all areas of experimental computing and application development for the technical sessions. There will be a number of special tracks on such issues as Programming Languages, Parallel and Distributed Computing, Agent Systems, Multimedia and Visualization, etc.

    Coordination Models, Languages and Applications Track ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Building on the success of the four previous editions (1998-2001), a special track on coordination models, languages and applications will be held at SAC 2002. Over the last decade, we have witnessed the emergence of models, formalisms and mechanisms to describe concurrent and distributed computations and systems based on the concept of coordination. The purpose of a coordination model is to enable the integration of a number of possibly heterogeneous components (processes, objects, agents) in such a way that the resulting ensemble can execute as a whole, forming a software system with desired characteristics and functionalities which possibly takes advantage of parallel and distributed systems. The coordination paradigm is closely related to other contemporary software engineering approaches such as component-based systems and middleware platforms. Furthermore, the concept of coordination exists in many other Computer Science areas such as Cooperative Information Systems, Distributed Artificial Intelligence, and Internet Technologies.

    The Special Track on Coordination Models, Languages and Applications deliberately takes a broad view of what is coordination: this term covers here traditional models and languages (e.g., the ones based on the Shared Dataspace and CHAM metaphors), but also other related notions and formalisms such as configuration and architectural description frameworks, models of multi-agent planning, organization and decision-making, systems modeling abstractions and languages, programming skeletons, etc.

    Correspondingly, in addition to the traditional areas covering data- driven (such as Linda) and control-driven (such as Manifold) models and languages, this Special Track aims at putting together contributions from all the many areas where the concept of coordination is relevant, such as multi-agent systems, software architectures, middleware platforms, groupware and workflow management, etc, providing them with a common forum where to discuss their different viewpoints and share ideas. On this very subject, it is worth to remind that the last editions of this Track were undoubtedly successful under many points of view, but in particular in attracting relevant and consistent contributions from many different research communities.

    DRH2001 : 8-10 July 2001, School of Oriental and African Studies, London. Draft programme now available.

    The Digital Resources in the Humanities series of conferences is Britain's premier forum for all aspects of humanities computing. The conferences are well known for the very wide range of high-quality papers and their friendly atmosphere, which make them the perfect occasion to keep up to date with the latest developments in the application of new technologies to humanities teaching, research and publication. The conference topics cover every aspect of humanities computing from the visual arts to text encoding. This year the conference takes place at the School of Oriental and African Studies from July 8-10. Places are still available. Day registration is possible.
