      WAO 2017
     2nd Workshop on Actors and Active Objects

  A Satellite workshop of iFM 2017
   Torino, Italy
 18 September 2017

Description of the workshop

Distribution  and concurrency are  currently mainstream.  The Internet
and  the broad  availability of  multi-processors  radically influence
software.  This  brings  renewed   interest  in  developing  both  new
concurrency  models and  associated  programming languages  techniques
that help  in understanding, analyzing, and verifying  the behavior of
concurrent  and distributed  programs.  The actors  or active  objects
concurrency  model  has  emerged   as  an  alternative  to  the  usual
thread-based concurrency model,  providing programmers with high-level
concurrency constructs that  help in producing concurrent applications
more modularly and  in a less error-prone way. It is  gaining a lot of
popularity mainly because  of the success of languages  like Scala and
Erlang. Also, most mainstream  languages are nowadays providing actors
or active-objects libraries.

The objective of the workshop is to discuss about current evolution of
actors  and  active  objects  and related  languages,  technology  and
tools. The goal is to make the workshop an active discussion forum for
all work  related to  actor languages and  active-objects in  order to
have a better view on the  current and future trends in this field and
perhaps  build longer  term  collaborations. The  workshop  will be  a
mixture   of   invited    presentations   and   short   tutorials   on
state-of-the-art languages/techniques/tools  by experts in  the field,
presentations  of recently  published  high-quality papers,  prototype
demonstrations, and  presentations of proofs-of-concept  and promising

Invited speaker

Lars Ake Fredlund, Technical University of Madrid

Important dates
  Abstract submission:       May  25, 2017
  Paper submission:          June  1, 2017
  Notification:              July 10, 2017

Submission information

We solicit papers in the following categories:

(1) Regular research papers of at most 12 pages (excluding references)
    describing original  scientific research results  or its relevance
    to  real applications.  Case studies  and tool  demonstrations are
    also welcome, in these cases with a maximum length of 8 pages. The
    paper should explain why the technique/case-study/tool is relevant
    for     the     community,     and,     in     particular,     for
    practitioners.  Submissions  will  be   judged  on  the  basis  of
    significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and clarity.

(2) Position  papers of  at most 4  pages describing exciting  but not
    fully  polished   research  (proofs-of-concept,  promising  ideas,

(3) High-quality  already  published  papers. Authors  will  send  an
    extended abstract  of at  most 2 pages  describing the work  and a
    link to the publication.

Revised  versions of  accepted  papers of  category  (1), taking  into
account the feedback received at  the workshop, will be published in a
volume of  the Electronic Proceedings in  Theoretical Computer (EPTCS)
series after the workshop.  For  submissions in categories (2) and (3)
there will be a  light-weight reviewing process where submissions will
be judged on their interest to the workshop audience.

Papers  will  be  submitted  (in  PDF  format)  through  Easychair  at


Miguel Gomez-Zamalloa, Complutense University of Madrid, Spain
Guillermo Román-Díez,    Technical University of Madrid, Spain
