Call for Papers

The Symposium on Trustworthy Global Computing (TGC) is an international venue dedicated to secure and reliable computation in the so-called global computers, i.e., those computational abstractions emerging in large-scale infrastructures such as service-oriented architectures, autonomic systems, and cloud computing.


    • Co-located with CONCUR 2015 (Madrid, Spain) from August, 31st to September, 1st
    • Parallel submission to CONCUR 2015 allowed
    • Keynote speakers: Gianluigi Zavattaro from the University of Bologna, Italy (joint with CONCUR), Andrey Rybalchenko from Microsoft Research Cambridge, UK.
    • Deadline for abstract submission: May, 18th (AoE) June, 1st (AoE)

The TGC series focuses on providing frameworks, tools, algorithms, and protocols for rigorously designing, verifying, and implementing open-ended, large-scaled applications. The related models of computation incorporate code and data mobility over distributed networks that connect heterogeneous devices and have dynamically changing topologies.

We solicit papers in all areas of global computing, including (but not limited to):

  • languages, semantic models, and abstractions
  • security, trust, and reliability
  • privacy and information flow policies
  • algorithms and protocols
  • resource management
  • model checking, theorem proving, and static analysis
  • tool support

Important dates

  • Deadline for abstract submission: May, 18th (AoE) June, 1st (AoE)
  • Deadline for paper submission: May, 25th (AoE) June, 8th (AoE)
  • Notification to authors: July, 2nd July, 16th
  • Final version for pre-proceedings: July, 31st

Submission instructions
TGC follows the instructions of CONCUR: submissions will be in electronic form via EasyChair. The usage of pdflatex and the LIPIcs style file are mandatory: no changes to font size, page geometry, etc. are permitted. Authors are invited to submit a draft of at most 13 pages including references. Submissions not in the correct format or submitted after the deadline will not be considered.

If necessary, the paper may be supplemented with a clearly marked appendix, which will be reviewed at the discretion of the program committee and the reviewers.

As usual, for an accepted paper one of the authors must commit to presenting the paper at the conference.

Submitted papers must describe work unpublished in refereed venues, and not submitted for publication elsewhere, with the exception of CONCUR. Concurrent submissions to CONCUR 2015 and TGC 2015 are allowed, and in fact encouraged, for those papers that may potentially enhance both conferences. Authors of such double submissions should flag them to the program chairs at the time of submission (by choosing the ‘Regular Paper submitted to CONCUR’ paper category). Reviews may be shared between CONCUR and TGC. CONCUR’s timeline is ahead of TGC’s; submissions accepted by CONCUR will be considered automatically withdrawn from TGC.

Contributions will be published in post-proceedings shortly after the conference. The aim is to give authors the opportunity to take into account discussions and suggestions at the conference. As in all previous editions of TGC, the post-proceedings will appear as a volume in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.
