announcement to types.

Please let me know if you'd like me to adjust the relevance level for
conference announcements higher or lower.  I tend to set it low,
but we seem to be getting more and more announcements.

{\bf                 Preliminary Announcement and Call for Papers
{\Large\bf                        COORDINATION'96
           First International Conference on Coordination Models and Languages
\\{\bf                            Cesena, Italy
}\\                             April 15-17, 1996.

            A new class of models, formalisms and mechanisms for describing
            concurrent and distributed computations has emerged over the last
            few years.  Some significant representatives of this new class
            are models and languages based on (generative) communication via
            a shared data space: Gamma, Linda, Swarm, Linear Objects, Polis
            and Tao are examples.

            Coordination models and languages are being investigated by the
            ESPRIT Basic Research Project, COORDINATION, which is organising
            this event.  The objective of this conference is to  provide a 
            forum for the rapidly growing community of researchers
            interested in this field.

            Topics of interest:
            Typical, but not exclusive topics of interest are:
\item       Coordination problems within concurrent, distributed, object
            oriented, functional and logic programming

\item       Concurrent computation, constraint programming, computation
            models based on the chemical reaction metaphor and related

\item       Software environments for the development of coordinated 

\item       Semantics and reasoning about coordination

\item       Case studies with industrial relevance (e.g. Workflow, groupware,
            distributed artificial intelligence, distributed software 

{\bf        Submissions:
            Authors are invited to send full papers (in English, up to 15
            pages) to the PC chairman, at the address
            mentioned on the left. Simultaneous submission to other
            conferences or journals is not allowed.
            Electronic submission is
            encouraged via e-mail, in the form of uuencoded compressed
            PostScript(TM) files.
            Each submission should be accompanied by a 100 word summary
            and a single postal and e-mail address for communication.

{\bf        Conference Format and Location:
            The conference will be three days long from Monday to Wednesday.
            Cesena is a nice town of about 80,000 inhabitants, hosting a
            science programme of the University of Bologna. The town is
            close to Rimini (the main Italian 
            seaside resort, famous for its night-life), Ravenna (the capital 
            of the western Roman empire) and the S. Marino Republic. Cesena is 
            about one hour by train from Bologna which is connected by direct 
            flights to several European cities.
