[DMANET] RADICAL@CONCUR'19: Recent Advances in Concurrency and Logic - Final Call for Submissions

[Please distribute widely - apologies for multiple postings.]


2nd International Workshop on Recent Advancement in Concurrency and
Logic (RADICAL 2019)
To be held as Workshop co-located with CONCUR 2019
26 August 2019, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.



Concurrency and Logics are two of the most active research areas in the
theoretical computer science domain. The literature in these fields is
extensive and provides a plethora of logics and models for reasoning
about intelligent and distributed systems. More recently, the interplay
of concurrency and logic with areas such as:

1. design, verification, synthesis for concurrent systems, both qualitative
and quantitative;
2. strategic reasoning for distributed and multi-agent systems;
3. analysis and validation techniques for concurrent and distributed
such as advanced type systems and separation logics;

has received much attention, as witnessed by recent editions of AI
conferences. All these examples share the challenge of developing novel
theories and tools for automated reasoning that take into account the
behaviour of concurrent and multi-agent entities.

The workshop aims to bring together researchers working on different aspects
of logic and concurrency in AI, multi-agent systems, and computer science,
both from a theoretical and a practical point of view. Besides, it aims to
promote research on Foundation of AI in other research communities that are
traditionally Theoretical Computer Science-oriented.

Topics of interest

The topics covered by the workshop include, but are not limited to, the

Concurrency Theory;
Programming languages and semantics;
Formal models for communication-based, concurrent and distributed systems;
Logics in concurrency;
Logics for verification of (concurrent) multi-agent systems;
Logical foundations of decision theory for multi-agent systems;
Knowledge representation;
Programming languages;

Previous Editions

RADICAL 2017 (co-located with CONCUR 2017). 4 September 2017, Berlin


Submitted contributions should not exceed 3 pages (not including references)
using the EasyChair format. Submitted papers should be formatted in PDF and
uploaded to


We invite submissions describing talk proposals on the intersection of
logic and concurrency. A submission to RADICAL would typically fall within
one of the following categories:

reports of an ongoing work and/or preliminary results;
summaries of an already published paper (or series of papers);
overviews of (recent) PhD theses;
descriptions of research projects and consortia;
manifestos, calls to action, personal views on current and future
overviews of interesting yet underrepresented problems.

This list is by no means exhaustive but merely indicative.

Submissions based on already published works should include explicit
references/links as appropriate. Reviewers may read such prior published
works, but are not obliged to do so.

Submissions will be judged by the program committee on the basis of
significance, relevance, and potential of an engaging, compelling talk
at the workshop.

Submission from PC members is encouraged.

It is understood that for each accepted submission one of the co-authors
will attend the workshop and give the talk.

Important Dates
** Submission deadline: Friday, 21 June 2019.
** Notification to authors: Friday, 26 July 2019.
** Workshop: Monday, 26 August 2019, in Amsterdam.
