Call for Papers
TGC 2011
Sixth International Symposium on
Aachen, Germany, September 9-10, 2011
co-located with CONCUR & QEST 2011

Important Dates


The Symposium on Trustworthy Global Computing is an international annual venue dedicated to safe and reliable computation in the so-called global computers, i.e., those computational abstractions emerging in large-scale infrastructures such as Service-Oriented Architecture, Autonomic Systems and Cloud Computing. The TGC series focuses on providing frameworks, tools, algorithms and protocols for designing open-ended, large-scaled applications and for reasoning about their behaviour and properties in a rigourous way. 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):

Invited Speakers

Submission Details

Papers can be submitted online through the EASYCHAIR website

Contributions must be in Postscript or PDF and consist of no more than 15 pages in the Springer LNCS style. Additional details and proofs omitted due to space limitations may be included in a clearly marked appendix. Submitted papers must describe work unpublished in refereed venues, and not submitted for publication elsewhere.


We plan to publish Springer LNCS post-proceedings shortly after the conference, to give the authors the opportunity to take into account discussions and suggestions at the conference.

Pre-proceedings with the accepted papers will be made available at the conference.

Origins & plans

In 2011, the symposium is co-located with CONCUR & QUEST 2011.

TGC 2010, (LNCS vol. 6084) was held in Munich (Germany), on February 24-26, 2010. The symposium was co-located with the reviews of the FP6 projects AEOLUS SENSORIA.

TGC 2008, (LNCS vol. 5474) was held in Barcelona (Spain), on November 3-4, 2008. The symposium was co-located with the reviews of the FP6 projects AEOLUS, MOBIUS and SENSORIA.

TGC 2007 (LNCS vol. 4912) was held in Sophia-Antipolis (France), on November 5-6, 2007. The symposium was co-located with the reviews of the FP6 projects AEOLUS, MOBIUS and SENSORIA, and it was followed by the Workshop on the Interplay of Programming Languages and Cryptography.

TGC 2006, (LNCS vol. 4661) was held in Lucca (Italy), on November 7-9, 2006. The Symposium was co-located with the reviews of the FP6 projects AEOLUS, MOBIUS, SENSORIA and CATNETS.

The first TGC event took place in Edinburgh on April 7-9, 2005 with the co-sponsorship of IFIP TC-2, as part of ETAPS 2005. TGC 2005 was the evolution of the previous Global Computing I Workshops held in Rovereto in 2003 and 2004 (see LNCS vol. 2874) and the workshops on Foundation of Global Computing held as satellite events of ICALP and Concur (see ENTCS vol. 85).
