6th Workshop on the Theory of Transactional Memory
         EuroTM WTTM 2014

     July 15, 2014, Paris, France
     in conjunction with PODC 2014

http://www.gsd.inesc-id.pt/~mcouceiro/wttm2014/html/index.html


======================================================

Scope
The 6th Workshop on the Theory of Transactional Memory is a forum to
foster exchanges, discussions, and dissemination among researchers on
theoretical challenges and recent achievements in the context of
speculative concurrent computing with emphasis on transactional
memory. Transactional memory (TM) is a promising programming paradigm
for simplifying concurrent programming. This abstraction raises
several challenges in the way we view synchronization as well as in
the way we implement it.  A major goal of the workshop is to explore
new directions and approaches for reasoning about transactional memory.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Transaction models
- Safety and liveness in speculative computing
- TM algorithms and limitations
- Speculation-friendly and transaction-friendly data structures and
algorithms
- Concurrent programming, synchronization and shared memory
- Multiprocessor and multi-core architectures and algorithms
- Models for the analysis of multiprocessor and multi-core algorithms
- TM verification
- TM computing in clusters of workstations and message-passing systems
- In-memory speculative algorithms

Important dates
Submission deadline:      May 15, 2014
Acceptance notification:  June 15, 2014
Workshop Date:            July 15, 2014

Submissions
We solicit submissions describing recent results and/or position
papers relevant to the theory of speculative computing with emphasis
on transactional memory to be presented and discussed at the workshop.
Submissions should be in English and in PDF format. Submissions have
to include: a title, authors’ name and affiliation, and an up to
four-page abstract.  Papers are to be submitted electronically at

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=wttm2014

Final papers will be available to participants electronically during
the workshop. However, to facilitate resubmission to more formal
venues, no archival proceedings will be published. Authors will have
the option to upload the final version of their papers on the workshop
website.
