      > CONFERENCE GOALS
      >
      >Modern information systems rely increasingly on combining concurrent,
      >distributed, mobile, reconfigurable and heterogenous components. New
      >models, architectures, languages, verification techniques are
      >necessary to cope with the complexity induced by the demands of
      >today's software development. Coordination languages have emerged as a
      >successful approach, in that they provide abstractions that cleanly
      >separate behavior from communication, therefore increasing modularity,
      >simplifying reasoning, and ultimately enhancing software development.
      >
      >Building on the success of the previous editions, this conference
      >provides a well-established forum for the growing community of
      >researchers interested in models, languages, architectures, and
      >implementation techniques for coordination.
      >
      > PREVIOUS EDITIONS
      >
      >The previous editions of COORDINATION took place in Cesena (Italy),
      >Berlin (Germany), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Limassol (Cyprus), York
      >(UK), and Pisa (Italy). More details are available at
      >http://music.dsi.unifi.it/coordination.
      >
      > TOPICS OF INTEREST
      >
      >They include but are not limited to:
      >
      >* Theoretical models and foundations for coordination: component
      > composition, concurrency, mobility, dynamic aspects of coordination,
      > emergent behavior.
      >* Specification, refinement, and analysis of software architectures:
      > patterns and styles, verification of functional and non-functional
      > properties.
      >* Coordination, architectural, and interface definition languages:
      > implementation, interoperability, heterogeneity.
      >* Multiagent systems and coordination: models, languages, infrastructures.
      >* Dynamic software architectures: mobile code and agents, configuration,
      > reconfiguration, self-organization.
      >* Coordination and modern distributed computing: Web services,
      > peer-to-peer networks, grid computing, context-awareness, ubiquitous
      > computing.
      >* Programming languages, middleware, tools, and environments for the
      > development of coordinated applications
      >* Industrial relevance of coordination and software architectures:
      > programming in the large, domain-specific software architectures and
      > coordination models, case studies.
      >* Interdisciplinary aspects of coordination
      >
      > PROCEEDINGS
      >
      >The conference proceedings are expected to be published by Springer, in
      >the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Proceedings of
      >the previous editions of this conference are also available in the
      >LNCS series: volumes 1061, 1282, 1594, 1906, 2315, and 2949.
      >
      >A selection of the best papers will also be considered for publication
      >in a special issue of a major journal.
      >
      > SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
      >
      >Authors are invited to submit full papers electronically in PostScript
      >or PDF using a two-phase online submission process. Registration of
      >the paper information and abstract (max. 250 words) must be completed
      >before December 15, 2004. Submission of the full paper is due no later
      >than December 21, 2004. Submission will be handled through a conference
      >management system: instructions will be published at
      >http://www.coordination2005.org
      >
      >Submissions must be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines (see
      >http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html) and must not exceed 15
      >pages in length. Papers that are not in the requested format or
      >significantly exceed the mandated length may be rejected without going
      >through the review phase.
      >
      >Submissions should explicitly state their contribution and their
      >relevance to the theme of the conference. Other criteria for selection
      >will be originality, significance, correctness, and clarity.
      >
      >Simultaneous or similar submissions to other conferences or journals
      >are not allowed.
      >
      > CONFERENCE LOCATION
      >
      >The conference will be hosted by the Institute of Informatics at the
      >University of Namur, Belgium.
      >
      >Capital of the Walloon Region, Namur is a beautiful city of 80.000
      >inhabitants. Its position at the confluent of two rivers gave it
      >military and economic appeal, exploited by the Roman Empire and by
      >many others since then. Much evidence of Namur's past can be visited
      >nowadays, including the citadel, one of the greatest in Europe.
      >
      >Close to Brussels (60 km) and at the intersection of European railways
      >and highways, Namur can be easily reached by road, train, and plane.
