Abstract

The fundamental turn of software into concurrency and distribution is not only a matter of performance, but also of appropriate design and abstraction. This calls for programming paradigms that would allow developers to think, design, develop, execute, debug, and profile programs exhibiting different degrees of concurrency, reactiveness, autonomy, decentralization of control, and distribution in ways that are more natural than that supported the current paradigms. This workshop aims at exploring programming approaches explicitly providing a level of abstraction that promotes a decentralized mindset in solving problems and programming systems exhibiting such features. To this end, the abstractions of actors and agents (and systems of actors / systems of agents) are taken as a natural reference: the objective of the workshop is then to foster the research in all aspects of actor-oriented programming and agent-oriented programming and other decentralized approaches as evolution of mainstream paradigms (such as OOP), including the theory and the practice of design and programming, bringing together researchers working on the models, languages, and technologies, as well as practitioners developing real-world systems and applications.
