The International Conference on Application of Concurrency to System Design (ACSD) serves as a forum for disseminating theoretical results and advanced methods and tools for the design of complex concurrent systems. While there are a few success stories in the field, there is still a strong need to bring theory and practise closer together. The conference aims at cross-fertilising both types of research (see the web pages for the last two editions of the conference, ACSD 2003 and ACSD 2001.)

The two tracks of ACSD 2004 are

  • Asynchronous Interfaces: tools, techniques, and implementations
  • Automotive Systems: modelling, design, and verification

These tracks will be held from June 16 to June 18, 2004.

Workshops affiliated to ACSD 2004 will be held before the main conference, on 14-15 June, 2004. Researchers and practitioners wishing to organise such a workshop are invited to contact the ACSD 2004 Workshop coordinator, Ridha Khedri, e-mail, by January 5, 2004.

Final workshop proposals are due January 15, 2004, and should be submitted to the ACSD 2004 Workshop coordinator by electronic mail in ASCII, PDF, or Postscript format.

A proposal should not exceed two pages and should describe the topic of the workshop, the name(s) and contact information of the organiser(s), the estimated dates for paper submissions, notification of acceptance, and final versions (before March 26, 2004), the expected number of participants and duration, the preferred day period (June 14-15), and any other relevant information (e.g. invited speakers, panels, publication policy, demo sessions, etc.).

The proposals will be evaluated by the ACSD 2004 organising committee on the basis of their assessed benefit for prospective participants to ACSD 2004. Acceptance decisions will be made by February 1, 2004.

Workshop organisers will be responsible for producing a Call for papers, Web sites, reviewing and making acceptance decisions on submitted papers and scheduling workshop activities in consultation with the local workshop coordinator by February 20, 2004.

Any further information needed for preparing a workshop proposal can be obtained from the ACSD 2004 workshop coordinator: Ridha Khedri, e-mail
