The 19th international ACSD conference will be organized by the Process and
Data Science (PADS) group at RWTH
Aachen University, Aachen, Germany. The conference will take place in the
conference area of the Tivoli football
stadium, close to the city center of Aachen. The language of the conference
is English. The conference proceedings
will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore.

The conference aims at cross-fertilizing both theoretical and applied
research about formal approaches (in a broad
sense) to designing computer systems that exhibit concurrent behavior. In
particular, the following topics are of interest:
- Formal models of computation and concurrency for synchronous and
asynchronous systems and problems, like data-flow
models, communicating automata, Petri nets, process algebras, graph
rewriting systems, state charts, MSCs, modal
and temporal logics
- Design principles for concurrent systems, in particular hardware/software
co-design, platform-based design,
component-based design, modular synthesis, distributed simulation and
control, refinement techniques,
hardware/software abstractions, cross-layer optimization
- Algorithms and tools for concurrent systems, ranging from programming
languages to algorithmic methods, for system
analysis and construction, including model checking, verification, and
static analysis techniques as well as
synthesis procedures
- High-performance computer architectures like many-core processors,
on-chip-networks, graphics processing units,
instruction-level parallelism, dataflow architectures, cache coherency,
memory systems, up to ad-hoc, mobile, and
wireless networks
- Resource management in implementations including task and communication
scheduling, network-, memory-, and
power-management, energy/power distribution, fault-tolerance, quality of
service, scalability, load balancing,
power proportionality
- Real-time aspects, incl. hard real-time requirements, security- and
safety-critical issues, functional and timing verification
- Cyber-physical systems, hybrid systems, networked systems, and networks
in biological systems
- Case studies of general interest, from industrial applications to
consumer electronics and multimedia, automotive
systems, (bio-) medical applications, neuromorphic applications, internet
(of things) and grid computing, to
gaming applications.

ACSD seeks papers describing original work which has not been previously
published and is not under review for
publication elsewhere. All files must be prepared using the latest IEEE
Computer Society conference proceedings
guidelines (8.5 x 11 inch two-column format). The page limit for regular
papers is 10 pages. Accepted papers will
be included in the conference proceedings.
At least one author of each accepted contribution is expected to present
the paper at the conference, and will be
required to sign the copyright release forms. All papers have to be
submitted via EasyChair:

Aachen is a historic city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, at the point
where Germany borders on Belgium and
the Netherlands. Historically this spa-town was a prominent city, the place
where the German Kings were crowned,
and the residence of Charlemagne who still lies buried in the impressive
cathedral he himself had built. The city
has many historical sites that remind of those days, including medieval
buildings, city gates, and beautiful
fountains. Aachen is Germany's westernmost city. It lies near the borders
with Belgium and the Netherlands and
is nestled between the large national parks of the Eifel and the Ardennes.
The city has a population of 260,000,
which includes about 50,000 students and more than 4,000 academic staff
from across the world. Its lively student
community lends the city just as much character as its history. Aachen is
famous for its Printen gingerbread, its
hot springs, its Mardi Gras carnival and one of the world's largest
equestrian tournaments. The historic city
center and a wealth of bars, cafes, and restaurants, combined with the
nearby nature parks, such as the Eifel,
make Aachen a city where everyone feels at home. The venue of the
conference, the Tivoli football stadium, is
located on the border of the city center. This beautiful venue will provide
a unique atmosphere with great views
and excellent conference facilities.
