Concurrency is an integral part of everyday life. The concept is so ingrained in our existence that we benefit from it without realizing. When faced with a taxing problem, we automatically involve others to solve it more easily. Such concurrent solutions to a complex problem, may, however, not be quite straightforward and communication becomes crucial to ensure the successful solution of the problem.
All modern computing systems incorporate some form of concurrency. Over many years, the WoTUG series of conferences has been a major forum for the presentation of state-of-the-art ideas on concurrency and communication. Communicating Process Architectures 2001 continues this trend, with these proceedings containing 22 high quality papers discussing a wide range of issues fundamental to the future of concurrency. The Communicating Process Architectures 2001 conference brings together researchers and practitioners from many disciplines to stimulate discussion and ideas on all aspects of concurrency and communication. Topics covered include: theory, such as development to Hoare’s algebra of Communicating Sequential Processes, hardware and real-time systems, software architecture and design, and applications. The papers are presented in a single stream, with plenty of opportunity for discussion.
