====================================================

The 6th Annual Conference on Theory and Applications of Models of Computation (TAMC'09) will be held in ChangSha, P.R. China, from May 18 to May 22, 2009. Five previous annual meetings were held in 2004-2008, in Beijing, Shanghai, and Xi'an, with enthusiastic participation from researchers all around the world.

The three main themes of the conference TAMC'09 will continue to be Computability, Complexity, and Algorithms. It aims to bring together researchers with interests in theoretical computer science, algorithmic mathematics, and applications to the physical sciences. Typical but not exclusive topics of interest include: algorithms and data structures, computational complexity, cryptography, computational geometry, computational game theory, algorithmic graph theory and combinatorics, algorithmic algebra, number theory and coding theory, learning theory, computational biology, theoretical problems in networks and security, quantum computing, randomness, on-line algorithms, parallel algorithms, natural computation, models of computation, automata and neural networks, continuous and real computation, computable mathematics, relative computability and degree structures, Turing definability, generalized and higher type computation, proofs and computation, physical computability, decidability and undecidability.
