Joe Armstrong-2
There's a new ACM conference starting which is all about topics
that quite a few of us find very interesting.

This should be a good place to publish results on
the use of Erlang for making distributed systems.

I'm sure the conference would welcome a lot
of "practical applications of ... " type papers.

Here's your chance to tell the (academic) world about
your wonderful Erlang applications

Programming Systems, Languages, and Applications based on  Agents,
Actors, and Decentralized Control

International Workshop to be held at SPLASH 2011, Portland, USA

Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN

Title and Abstract Submission: Friday, 5 August 2011
Paper Submission: Friday, 12 August 2011
Demo submission: Friday, 9 September 2011
Workshop: Monday, 24 October 2011

The fundamental turn of software into concurrency and distribution is
not only a matter of
performance, but also of design and abstraction, calling for
programming paradigms that would
allow more naturally than the current ones to think, design, develop,
execute, debug and profile
programs exhibiting different degrees of concurrency, reactiveness,
autonomy, decentralization
of control, distribution. This workshop aims at exploring programming
approaches explicitly
providing  a level of abstraction that promotes a decentralized
mindset in solving problems and
programming  systems. To this end, the abstractions of agents and
actors (and systems of
agents and actors)  are taken as a natural reference: the objective of
the workshop is then to
foster the research in all aspects of agent-oriented programming and
programming as evolution of mainstream paradigms (such as OOP),
including the theory and
the practice of design and programming, bringing together researchers
working on the models,
languages and technologies, and practitioners developing real-world
systems and applications.
