# PLACES 2020 - Second Call for Papers

The 12th edition of PLACES (Workshop on Programming Language Approaches to Concurrency- and Communication-cEntric Software) will be co-located with ETAPS 2020 in Dublin, Ireland on 26 April 2020.


For over a decade, PLACES has been a popular forum for researchers from different fields to exchange new ideas about challenges to modern and future programming, where concurrency and distribution are the norm rather than a marginal concern.

Submissions are welcomed in the general area of programming language approaches to concurrency, communication, and distribution and may range from foundational issues to language implementations, applications and case studies.  Submissions will be peer-reviewed by a minimum of three reviewers, with the aim of allocating at least one expert reviewer. Submissions will be assessed based on their **novelty**, **clarity**, **technical soundness** and their **potential to foster fruitful discussions at the workshop**. Submissions must not be submitted for publication elsewhere and must be formatted in EPTCS format, containing a maximum of 8 pages (with no restriction on bibliography or appendices, which the reviewers need not read). Accepted papers will be published as an issue of EPTCS.

After the workshop, there will be an open call for submissions to a **JLAMP special issue** aimed at accommodating extended versions of accepted papers and other contributions on the themes of PLACES 2020.
