    Component-based software is likely to be the most promising approach
    to making distributed systems and Internet applications fit the
    requirements of the new information-based work organization.
    Component-based software encompasses many disciplines and application
    domains, such as groupware, distributed object-oriented software
    development, middleware, multimedia, CSCW, and distributed simulation.
    The focus of this session is on component-based in special coordination
    issues that arise in these systems. Models, languages, and
    applications for both architectural and behavioral aspects of systems
    are of special concern.

    The purpose of this session is to bring together researchers and
    practitioners working on component-based computing and coordination
    in the diverse disciplines this field encompasses.
    The session serves as a forum to enable exchange of experience between
    academia and industry, as well as between researchers working on
    different aspects of coordination and component-based computing.

             Subject: CFP: M4M-2

    >> From: Methods for Modalities <m4m@science.uva.nl>



    Institute for Logic, Language and Computation
    University of Amsterdam
    November 29-30, 2001

    The workshop Methods for Modalities (M4M) aims to bring together
    researchers interested in developing proof tools and reasoning methods for
    modal logic broadly conceived, including description logic, hybrid logics,
    feature logic, temporal logic, etc.

    To stimulate interaction and transfer of expertise, M4M will be centered
    around a number of long presentations by leading researchers; these
    presentations aim to provide both the general background and inside
    information in a number of key areas. To complement these, we are inviting
    submissions of short, focussed presentations aimed at highlighting new
    developments and applications, and submissions of system demonstrations.
    M4M-2 is the second installment of this bi-anual workshop series.
