Young Researchers Workshop on Concurrency Theory

September 3, 2012

Newcastle upon Tyne, UK


Aims and objectives

This workshop aims at providing a platform for PhD students and young researchers who recently completed their doctoral studies, to exchange new results related to concurrency theory and receive feedback on their research. Focus is on informal discussions. Excellent master students working on concurrency theory are also encouraged to contribute.


YR-CONCUR 2012 is a satellite workshop of CONCUR 2012 and will be held on Monday, September 3, 2012. It is anticipated that many CONCUR participants will attend the YR-workshop (and vice versa). Presentations are selected on the basis of an abstract of up to 4 pages (incl. references) describing the research. No particular format is required. Submissions are judged on the expected interest in and quality of the talk. The accepted abstracts will be made available at the workshop, but no formal proceedings are planned. It is thus also allowed (and encouraged) to send results that have been published at other conferences (although preferably not at CONCUR 2012 or any of its other satellite workshops).


The first edition YR-CONCUR 2009 was organized by Joost-Pieter Katoen as a satellite workshop of CONCUR 2009 in Bologna, Italy. The second edition YR-CONCUR 2010 was organized by Bas Luttik as a satellite workshop of CONCUR 2010 in Paris, France. The third edition YR-CONCUR 2011 was organized by Benedikt Bollig as a satellite workshop of CONCUR 2011 in Aachen, Germany.
