                  Coordination Models, Languages and Applications
        Special Track of the 30th ACM Symposium on Applied Computing

                                April 13 - 17, 2015
                                  Salamanca, Spain


Building on the success of the fifteenth previous editions (1998-2014), a
track on coordination models, languages and applications will be held at
SAC 2015.
Over the last decade, we have witnessed the emergence of models, formalisms
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,
agents, services) in such a way that the resulting ensemble can execute as
a whole,
forming a distributed software system with desired characteristics and
This is done in terms of coordination abstractions, languages, algorithms,
and middleware specifically focused on the management of component

The coordination paradigm crosscuts a number of contemporary software
approaches and fields, which we aim to cross-fertilize and bring
contribution to,
including in particular: multi-agent systems, self-adaptative and
systems, service-oriented architectures, component-based systems, and all
middleware platforms.

The Special Track on Coordination Models, Languages and Applications takes
deliberately broad view of what constitutes coordination. Accordingly,
major topics
of interest this year will include:

   - Novel models, languages, formalisms, programming and implementation
   - Coordination technologies, systems and infrastructures
   - Applications
   - Middleware platforms
   - Formal aspects (semantics, reasoning, verification)
   - Software architectures and software engineering techniques
   - Coordination of multi-agent systems, including mobile agents,
intelligent agents,
     and agent-based simulations
   - Internet, Web, and pervasive computing systems coordination
   - Languages for service description and composition
   - Models, frameworks and tools for Group Decision Making
   - All aspects related to Cooperative Information Systems (e.g. workflow
   - Configuration and Architecture Description Languages
   - Self-organising, self-adaptive and nature-inspired coordination
   - Relationship with other computational models such as object oriented,
     (functional, logic, constraint) programming or their extensions with
   - Coordination models and specification in Service-Oriented
Architectures, Web Service
     technologies (orchestration, choreography, etc.),Pervasive Computing
and Autonomic
   - Policy-based approaches to coordination and self-adaptation

We also welcome papers on practical systems or novel applications that are
aimed at
reaching coordination between components and services, especially if those
systems and
novel applications challenge existing ideas and models.

In previous editions, CM Special Track organisers have been inviting
authors of selected
papers for special issues in high impact journals, such as, ACM
Transactions on Autonomous
and Adaptive Systems (TAAS) and Science of Computer Programming (SCP).

Papers accepted for the Special Track on Coordination Models, Languages and
Applications will be published by ACM both in the SAC 2015 proceedings and
the Digital Library.

   Paper submission and format

All papers should represent original and previously unpublished works that
currently are not under review in any conference or journal.

The author(s) name(s) and address(es) must NOT appear in the body of the
and self-reference should be in the third person. This is to facilitate
review. Only the title should be shown at the first page without the

Submitted papers must be no longer than 6 pages and in the ACM two-column
format (doc template, pdf template, latex template). It will be possible to
up to 2 extra pages in the proceeding at a charge of $80 per page (total 8

Paper registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper/poster
in the
conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST present the
This is a requirement for the paper/poster to be included in the ACM/IEEE
library. No-show of scheduled papers and posters will result in excluding
from the ACM/IEEE digital library.

Submission is entirely automated via the STAR Submission System, which is
from the main SAC Web Site:

   Poster Sessions

Papers that received high reviews (that is acceptable by reviewer
standards) but
were not accepted due to space limitation can be invited for the poster
Poster should be not longer than 2 pages plus 1 extra page at $80. The
session procedures and details will be posted on SAC 2015 website as soon
as they
become available.

   Student research abstracts competition

Graduate students are invited to submit research abstracts (minimum of
2-page and
maximum of 4-page) following the instructions published at SAC 2015
Submission of the same abstract to multiple tracks is not allowed.
