The purpose of CONCUR 2020, the 31st International Conference on Concurrency Theory, is to bring together researchers, developers, and students in order to advance the theory of concurrency, and promote its applications.
CONCUR 2020 is part of the umbrella conference QONFEST 2020 comprising the joint international 2020 meetings CONCUR, QEST, FORMATS, alongside with several workshops and tutorials.
Submissions are solicited in semantics, logics, verification and analysis of concurrent systems. The principal topics include (but are not limited to):
Basic models of concurrency such as abstract machines, domain-theoretic models, game-theoretic models, process algebras, graph transformation systems, Petri nets, hybrid systems, mobile and collaborative systems, probabilistic systems, real-time systems, biology-inspired systems, and synchronous systems;
Logics for concurrency such as modal logics, probabilistic and stochastic logics, temporal logics, and resource logics;
Verification and analysis techniques for concurrent systems such as abstract interpretation, atomicity checking, model checking, race detection, pre-order and equivalence checking, run-time verification, state-space exploration, static analysis, synthesis, testing, theorem proving, type systems, and security analysis;
Distributed algorithms and data structures: design, analysis, complexity, correctness, fault tolerance, reliability, availability, consistency, self-organization, self-stabilization, protocols;
Theoretical foundations of architectures, execution environments, and software development for concurrent systems such as geo-replicated systems, communication networks, multiprocessor and multi-core architectures, shared and transactional memory, resource management and awareness, compilers and tools for concurrent programming, programming models such as component-based, object- and service-oriented.
