COORDINATION 2015 is the premier forum for publishing research results 
and experience reports on software technologies for collaboration and 
coordination in concurrent, distributed, and complex systems. The key 
focus of the conference is the quest for high-level abstractions that 
can capture interaction patterns and mechanisms occurring at all levels 
of the software architecture, up to the end-user domain. COORDINATION 
2015 seeks high-quality contributions on the usage, study, formal 
analysis, design, and implementation of languages, models, and 
techniques for coordination in distributed, concurrent, pervasive, and 
multicore software systems. This edition also additionally seeks to 
adapt and integrate traditional COORDINATION techniques in the realm of 
multi-agent systems (MAS), which typically involve more corse-grained 
(cognitive, intelligent, goal-oriented) components.

Main topics of interest:

* Programming abstractions and languages
* Coordination models and paradigms
* Specification and verification
* Foundations and types
* Distributed middleware architectures
* Multicore programming
* Coordinated distributed applications
* Bio-inspired computing models
* Coordination mechanisms for self-adaptation and self-organisation
* Teamwork and distributed problem solving
* Collective intelligence
* Auction and Negotiation
* Argumentation, trust, norms and reputation
* Coordination mechanisms for rational agents
* Coordination middleware for mobile agents
* Coordination of federated MASs

Submission and publication:

Contributions must be written in English and report on original, 
unpublished work not submitted for publication elsewhere (cf. IFIP's 
codes of conduct). The submissions must not exceed the page number limit 
(see below), including figures and references, prepared using Springer's 
LNCS style. Submissions not adhering to the above specified constraints 
may be rejected without review.
Papers should be submitted as PDF or PS via EasyChair:
  We solicit three kinds of submissions:

*Full papers* (up to 16 pages): Describing thorough and complete 
research results and experience reports.

*Short papers* (up to 8 pages): Describing research results that are not 
fully developed, or even manifestos, calls to action, personal views on 
the past of Coordination research, on the current state of the art, or 
on prospects for the years to come.

*Posters* (up to 3 pages): Summarising research projects worth being 
advertised and discussed in a lively fashion at the conference.

The conference proceedings, formed by accepted submissions of all three 
kinds above, will be published by Springer in the LNCS Series.

Post-proceedings publication:

Relevant, high-quality Coordination-2015 papers will be invited for 
'fast-track submissions' to the ACM Transactions on Autonomous and 
Adaptive Systems (ACM-TAAS).
