 First Announcement and Call for Papers

      Mini-conference on Applied Theoretical Computer Science
                            (MATCOS-10)
           Koper, Slovenia, October 13th and 14th, 2010.

Held  in conjunction  with  the 13th  Multi-Conference on  Information
Society, October 11-15, 2010, Ljubljana, Slovenia. (http://is.ijs.si/)


Scope and Topics

During  the past years,  several subjects,  methods and  approaches of
Theoretical  Computer Science  have  been used  by  other fields,  and
several    results   have    been   integrated    into    real   world
applications.  Some  examples  for  the  above  nature  are  practical
solutions  for NP-hard  problems,  algorithmics oriented  AI and  data
mining  solutions,  new  models  and  methods in  system  biology  and
bioinformatics,  automata theory  solutions in  software  and hardware
verification,  prospective  new   models  of  computation  and  future
computer architecture.

The scope of the conference is to collect ideas and solutions from the
field of Theoretical Computer Science which can be directly applied in
other  fields  or being  potential  to  be  integrated in  real  world
applications.

Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest include:

   * automata and formal languages, computability
   * algorithms and data structutes
   * computational complexity
   * artificial intelligence, machine learning
   * optimization, approximation methods, NP-hard problems
   * graph theory

Special  emphasis   on  use   in  applications  such   as  simulation,
Bioinformatics, Digital signal and image processing, logistics etc.

Program Committee:
 Andrej Brodnik (Ljubljana, Koper, Slovenia), co-chair

Paper submission:

Papers  presenting original  research in  conference topics  are being
sought. Papers  must be in  English and provide sufficient  details to
allow the  program committee to  assess their merits.  Submissions, as
well as  final versions, are limited  to 4 pages  sharp long abstracts
and  will  be  published  in an  Information  Society  multiconference
proceedings.  Revised versions of  selected full papers will appear in
a special  issue of the journal  Informatica (www.informatica.si). The
instructions and the format for preparing the papers can be found here
