Abstract The EXPRESS workshops aim at bringing together researchers interested in the relations between various formal systems, particularly in the ﬁeld of Concurrency. More speciﬁcally, they focus on the comparison between programming concepts (such as concurrent, functional, imperative, logic and object-oriented programming) and between mathematical models of computation (such as process algebras, Petri nets, event structures, modal logics, rewrite systems etc.) on the basis of their relative expressive power. For online-information see http://express02.epﬂ.ch/. The EXPRESS workshops were originally held as meetings of the HCM project EXPRESS, which was active with the same focus from January 1994 till December 1997. The ﬁrst three workshops were held respectively in Amsterdam (1994, chaired by Frits Vaandrager), Tarquinia (1995, chaired by Rocco De Nicola), and Dagstuhl (1996, co-chaired by Ursula Goltz and Rocco De Nicola). The workshop in 1997, which took place in Santa Margherita Ligure and was co-chaired by Catuscia Palamidessi and Joachim Parrow, was organized as a conference with a call for papers and a signiﬁcant attendance from outside the project. The 1998 workshop was held as a satellite workshop of the CONCUR’98 conference in Nice, co-chaired by Ilaria Castellani and Catuscia Palamidessi, and like on that occasion EXPRESS’99 was hosted by the CONCUR’99 conference in Eindhoven, co-chaired by Ilaria Castellani and Bj¨ orn Victor. The EXPRESS’00 workshop was held as a satellite workshop of CONCUR 2000, Pennsylvania State University, USA, co-chaired by Luca Aceto and Bj¨ orn Victor. The EXPRESS’01 workshop was held at BRICS, Aalborg University as a satellite of CONCUR’01 and was co-chaired by Luca Aceto and Prakash Panangaden. In addition to the nine accepted (out of 30 submitted) papers presented at the workshop, this collection also contains the abstracts of the two invited talks by Catuscia Palamidessi and Igor Walukiewicz. We would like to thank the authors of the submitted papers, the invited speakers, and the members of the program committee for their contribution to both the meeting and this volume. We also would like to thank EPFL for the printing and Michael Mislove and Simon Kramer for his help with the editing of the preliminary proceedings, the CONCUR organizing committee at Brno University for hosting EXPRESS’02, especially the workshop coordinator Anton´ın Kucera for further local organization.
