Communication is the foundation of many systems. Understanding communication is a key to building a better understanding of the interaction of software entities such as objects, components, and aspects. This workshop was an opportunity to exchange points of view on many facets of communication and interaction. The workshop was divided in two parts: the first dedicated to the presentation of eight position papers, and the second to the selection and discussion of three critical topics in the communication abstraction domain.
