[PVS] FINAL CALL FOR PARTICIPATION AND POSTERS - MLQA 2011(Collocated with CONCUR, QEST,and TGC) - Models and Logics for Quantitative AnalysiS

Third Annual Meeting of the ERCIM Working Group on Models and Logics
for Quantitative Analysis (MLQA 2011)
September 5th, 2011, Aachen, Germany
Part of the International Conference on Concurrency Theory (CONCUR 2011)
and the collocated events  QEST 2011 and TGC 2011.
Continuous modeling and analysis techniques is currently quite a hot 
topic in the area of models and logics for quantitative analysis. 
Continuous domains are systematically and naturally used in the area of 
quantitative Process Algebras and Logics e.g. in the form of Time, or 
Probability, or random variable parameters (e.g. rates of exponential 
distributions). More recently, continuous domains have been used as 
approximations of typically discrete quantities which arise naturally 
when reasoning about (quantitative, e.g. stochastic) process algebras, 
like population sizes, i.e. the number of processes in a certain state 
at a certain point in time. Examples of such a use of continuous domains 
are PEPA ODE semantics, BioPEPA and can be found in the area of 
fluid/flow or mean-field analysis. In all these cases, discrete measures 
which vary over time are approximated by continuous functions (of time) 
which are often characterized as solutions of a set of differential 
equations. The aim of the MLQA workshop is to bring together experts in 
areas like process algebra, stochastic differential equations, 
fluid-flow techniques for process algebras, for queueing networks or 
Petri nets, stochastic hybrid systems, both from the theoretical 
foundations point of view and from that of the applications. **

MLQA (http://wiki.ercim.eu/wg/MLQA) is an ERCIM WG founded in 2009 and 
chaired by Prof. Flemming Nielson of DTU.
We invite all interested researchers and PhD students to participate
at MLQA 2011. Registration is via the CONCUR website:

We invite posters under two categories:

- Presentation of recent or on-going work in relation to the themes of MLQA.

- Overview of the recent research activities of a research group, in relation 
to the themes of MLQA.

We equally encourage submissions from both research leaders, junior researchers and PhD students.

Posters should be printed by the PARTICIPANTS in their preferred size.
Notification of your intention to submit, along with a title and short
 description of the poster, should be sent by August 31 to mlqa@imm.dtu.dk.
