PLACES 2016 (full title: Programming Language Approaches to Concurrency- and Communication-Centric Software) is the ninth edition of the PLACES workshop series. After the first PLACES, which was affiliated to DisCoTec in 2008, the workshop has been part of ETAPS every year since 2009 and is now an established part of the ETAPS satellite events. PLACES 2016 was held on 8th April in Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The workshop series was started in order to promote the application of novel programming language ideas to the increasingly important problem of developing software for systems in which concurrency and communication are intrinsic aspects. This includes software for both multi-core systems and large-scale distributed and/or service-oriented systems.

The scope of PLACES includes new programming language features, whole new programming language designs, new type systems, new semantic approaches, new program analysis techniques, and new implementation mechanisms. The workshop aims to span disciplines, from foundations of concurrency in programming language theory, to systems research, to application areas such as scientific computing. The unifying theme is the use of programming languages to address the challenges of concurrent computing.

This volume consists of the papers accepted for presentation at the workshop.
