[erlang-questions] [CFP] PaPoC Workshop, colocated with EuroSys 2015

Many distributed applications today need low-latency, scalability, high
availability, and geo-replication. The well-known tradeoff between
Consistency, Availability, and Partition Tolerance (and low latency) led to
the development of weakly consistent data stores, whose success made clear
that “one size does not fit all” when it comes to consistency. Designing
correct applications using weakly consistent shared data, however, is a
challenging task.

The PaPoC workshop will bring forth ideas on how to use, specify, and
implement consistency semantics ranging from weaker to stronger models. It
will bring together academic researchers, industrial researchers, and
practitioners coming from different fields: distributed algorithms,
distributed systems, databases, programming languages, and verification.
Each of these fields has attacked the problem of consistency from a
different angle and there is ample opportunity for synergies. PaPoC is the
direct successor of the EuroSys 2014 Workshop on Principles and Practice of
Eventual Consistency, which was attended by approximately 40 researchers
from the above fields.

Submissions should be short papers (2 pages or more) on cutting-edge work,
even if ongoing, or vision papers. Accepted papers will be published in ACM
Digital Library only upon the request of the authors. Examples of relevant
discussion topics include:

* Design principles, correctness conditions, and programming patterns for
scalable distributed data systems.
* Techniques for weak consistency: session guarantees, causal consistency,
operational transformation, conflict-free replicated data types, monotonic
programming, state merge, commutativity, etc.
* Consistency vs. performance and scalability trade-offs: guiding
developers, controlling the system.
* Analysis and verification of weakly consistent programs.
* Strengthening guarantees of weakly consistent system: transactions, fault
tolerance, security, ensuring invariants, bounding metadata size, and
controlling divergence.
* Platform guarantees vs. application involvement: guiding developers,
controlling the system.
