Communicating Process Architectures - CPA2014 Conference Summary

The CPA2014 conference held in Oxford over the last few days brought together an interesting group of around three dozen experts in the field of communicating process architectures. Discussions were on concurrency and parallelism topics, both theoretical and practical, in areas related to communicating process architectures (CPA). Also known as process-oriented programming, CPA is about both concurrency (the natural expression of things that are happening alongside each other) and parallelism (the physical execution of many parts of a program at the same time) by means of process algebra formalisms and CSP in particular.
