Annual Conference: Communicating Process Architectures
Communicating Process Architectures 2015,
the 37th. WoTUG conference on concurrent and parallel systems, takes place from
Sunday August 23rd. to Wednesday August 26th. 2015 and is hosted by the
School of Computing,
University of Kent.
Accommodation and evening Fringe sessions will be at
a few minutes walk from the School.
WoTUG provides a forum for the discussion and promotion of concurrency ideas,
tools and products in computer science.
It organises specialist workshops and annual conferences that address
key concurrency issues at all levels of software and hardware granularity.
WoTUG aims to progress the leading state of the art in:
and to stimulate discussion and ideas on the roles concurrency will play in the future:
theory (programming models, process algebra, semantics, ...);
practice (multicore processors and run-times, clusters, clouds, libraries, languages, verification, model checking, ...);
education (at school, undergraduate and postgraduate levels, ...);
applications (complex systems, modelling, supercomputing, embedded systems, robotics, games, e-commerce, ...);
Of course, neither of the above sets of bullets are exclusive.
for the next generation of scalable computer infrastructure (hard and soft) and application,
where scaling means the ability to ramp up functionality (stay in control as complexity increases)
as well as physical metrics (such as absolute performance and response times);
for system integrity (dependability, security, safety, liveness, ...);
for making things simple.
A database of papers and presentations from WoTUG conferences is here.
The Abstract below has been randomly selected from this database.
Flexible, Transparent and Dynamic occam Networking With KRoC.net
KRoC.net is an extension to KRoC supporting the distribution of occamchannels over networks, including the internet. Starting in 2001, the development ofKRoC.net has gone through a number of stages, each one making the system moreflexible, transparent and dynamic. It now enables the occam programmer to set upand close network channels dynamically. Configuration has been simplified. All occamPROTOCOLs can now be sent over network channels, without need for conversion.Many of the new dynamic features in occam have been used to improve KRoC.net.Many of the concepts in KRoC.net are similar to those in the JCSP Network Edition(JCSP.net), KRoC.net’s counterpart in the JCSP world. This paper will give an overviewover KRoC.net, its usage, its design and implementation, and its future. It willalso provide some benchmarks and discuss how the new occam features are beingused in the latest KRoC.net version.
