30-31 August 2013 Symposium

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 architectures, 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
rigorous 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):

* theories, languages, models and algorithms;
* language concepts and abstraction mechanisms;
* security, trust, privacy and reliability;
* resource usage and information flow policies;
* software development and software principles;
* model checkers, theorem provers and static analyzers.

Submission details
Papers are to be submitted through EasyChair.

Contributions must be in PDF format 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Submitted papers must describe work unpublished in refereed venues, and not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.

Collaboration with CONCUR
Exceptionally, however, concurrent submissions to CONCUR 2013 and TGC 2013
are allowed, and in fact encouraged for those paper that may potentially
enhance both conferences. Authors of such double submissions should
identify 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 2013 and TGC 2013. CONCUR's timeline is ahead of TGC's;
submissions accepted by CONCUR will be considered automatically withdrawn
from TGC.

As in previous editions 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
