=== Scope ===

Interaction and Concurrency Experiences (ICEs) is a series of
international scientific meetings oriented to theoretical computer
science researchers with special interest in models, verification,
tools and programming primitives for complex interactions.

The general scope of the venue includes theoretical and applied
aspects of interactions and the synchronization mechanisms used among
components of concurrent/distributed systems, but every experience focuses
on a different specific topic (see "Previous Editions" at the end of
this call) related to several areas of computer science in the broad
spectrum ranging from formal specification and analysis to studies
inspired by emerging computational models.

The theme of ICE 2012 is

***Distributed coordination, execution models, and resilient interaction***.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Process algebra and coordination: transformation, analysis and implementation
- Models for distributed coordination and semantics
- Techniques and tools for specification, analysis, verification of resilient interaction
- Languages, protocols and mechanisms for sound distributed coordination
- Logics and types for interactions
- Comparison among different coordination and/or execution models
- Expressive power of coordination languages and execution models
- Formal semantics of coordination languages
- Formal verification of distributed coordinated architectures
- Relating different semantic models for coordination languages


=== Selection Procedure ===

Since its 1st edition in 2008, the distinguishing feature of ICE has
been an innovative paper selection mechanism based
on an interactive discussion amongst authors and PC members.

During the review phase, each submitted paper is published on a Wiki
and associated with a discussion forum whose access will be restricted
to the authors and all the PC members who do not have a conflict of
interests with the paper.
The PC members post comments/questions that the authors shall reply
to.

As witnessed by the past four editions of ICE, this procedure considerably
improves the accuracy of the feedback from reviews, the fairness of
the selection, the quality of camera-ready papers, and the discussion
during the workshop.


=== The Public Wiki ===

After the notification, the accepted papers will be published on a public
forum, in order to initiate public discussions that will trigger and
stimulate the scientific debate at the workshop. We believe that this
will drive the workshop discussions and let prospective participants
interact with each other much earlier than in more traditional events.


=== Submission Guidelines ===

Papers must report previously unpublished work and not be
simultaneously submitted to other conferences/workshops with
refereed proceedings. The ICE 2012 post-proceedings will be
published in Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science
(http://eptcs.org/).

Submissions must be made electronically in PDF format via EasyChair
(http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ice2012) and should not
exceed 15 pages with the EPTCS style (http://style.eptcs.org/).

Accepted papers must be presented at the workshop by one of the
authors.


=== Special Issue ===

Full versions of the best papers selected by the PC will be invited
to appear in a special issue of the journal of Scientific Annals of
Computer Science (http://www.info.uaic.ro/bin/Annals/).
Such contributions will be regularly peer-reviewed according to the
standard journal policy, but they will be handled in a shorter time
than regular submissions.
