Open Computer Science: The Theory and Practice of Behavioural Types

                   ◄ Back to journal 


Over the past two decades, a new approach to type disciplines for communicating and concurrent programs has emerged, namely that of behavioural types, and the approach is becoming increasing well-developed. There are different approaches, but what they all have in common is that they deal with concepts that arise in the setting of communication and concurrency such as interfaces, communication protocols, contracts, and choreographies. 

This Topical Issue invites contributions spanning the field of behavioural types. We seek high-quality original research papers not previously published nor under review by another conference or journal. Survey papers are also welcomed provided their topic is of special interest.

Specific topics include but are not limited to:

  • New foundations and approaches
  • Applications to programming languages and program analysis
  • Applications of behavioural types to software security
  • Applications of behavioural types to software development.
