Call for Papers EXPRESS 2002, Brno, 19th August 2002

                      CALL FOR PAPERS


9th International Workshop on Expressiveness in Concurrency
           Brno, Czech Republic, August 19, 2002
    Held in conjunction with the conference CONCUR 2002



The EXPRESS workshops aim at bringing together researchers
interested in the relations between various formal systems,
particularly in the field of Concurrency. More specifically,
they focus on the comparison between programming concepts
(such as concurrent, functional, imperative, logic and
object-oriented programming) and between mathematical models
of computation (such as process algebras, Petri nets, event
structures, modal logics, rewrite systems etc.) on the basis
of their relative expressive power.

(excluding bibliography and technical appendices).

Both forms of submission should include a separate page with the
following information: title, author(s), corresponding author,
contact information and a 12-15 lines summary. Simultaneous
submission to other conferences or journals is only allowed for
short abstracts.

Electronic submission is strongly encouraged. The paper or abstract

The proceedings will be published after the workshop in the
ENTCS (Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science). 
A printed preliminary version of the proceedings will be available
at the workshop. The invitation of selected papers for publication 
in a journal is currently under consideration.
