12th Workshop on Programming Language Approaches to Concurrency- & Communication-cEntric Software
Workshop affiliated with ETAPS 2020
26 April 2020, Dublin, Ireland
The increasingly concurrent and parallel landscape of hardware and software infrastructures demands the exploration and understanding of a wide variety of foundational and practical ideas. The International Workshop on Programming Language Approaches to Concurrency and Communication-cEntric Software (PLACES) is dedicated to work in this area. The workshop offers a forum for researchers from different fields to exchange new ideas about these challenges to modern and future programming, where concurrency and distribution are the norm rather than a marginal concern. The topic is central and combines well with the main conferences of ETAPS, in particular with ESOP. PLACES has been a satellite workshop of ETAPS since 2009, and is now well established as an ETAPS event. It is usually one of the larger ETAPS workshops in terms of attendance.
PLACES has had 11 previous iterations, most of which co-located with ETAPS; this will be the twelfth edition.
