AISB event Bulletin Item

CfP: 18th International Symposium on Fundamentals of Computer Theory, 22-25 August 2011, Norway

http://fct11.ifi.uio.no/

FCT 2011, Oslo, Norway

The Symposium on Fundamentals of Computation Theory was established in
1977 for researchers interested in all aspects of theoretical computer science, as well as new emerging fields such as bio-inspired computing. 
It is a biennial series of conferences previously held in Poznan (Poland, 1977), Wendisch-Rietz (Germany, 1979), Szeged (Hungary, 1981), Borgholm (Sweden, 1983), Cottbus (Germany, 1985), Kazan (Russia, 1987), Szeged (Hungary, 1989), Gosen-Berlin (Germany, 1991), Szeged (Hungary, 1993), Dresden (Germany, 1995), Krakow (Poland, 1997), Iasi (Romania, 1999), Riga (Latvia, 2001), Malmo (Sweden, 2003), Lubeck (Germany, 2005), Budapest (Hungary, 2007), and Wroclaw (Poland, 2009).


PROCEEDINGS

The conference proceedings will be published (as usual) in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series of Springer-Verlag (to be confirmed).


SUBMISSIONS (topics)

Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original unpublished 
research in all areas of theoretical computer science.  Topics of interest 
include (but not limited to):

    * Algorithms:
          o algorithm design and optimization
          o combinatorics and analysis of algorithms
          o computational complexity
          o approximation, randomized, and heuristic methods
          o parallel and distributed computing
          o circuits and boolean functions
          o online algorithms
          o machine learning and artificial intelligence
          o computational geometry
          o computational algebra
    * Formal methods:
          o algebraic and categorical methods
          o automata and formal languages
          o computability and nonstandard computing models
          o database theory
          o foundations of concurrency and distributed systems
          o logics and model checking
          o models of reactive, hybrid and stochastic systems
          o principles of programming languages
          o program analysis and transformation
          o specification, refinement and verification
          o security
          o type systems
    * Emerging fields:
          o ad hoc, dynamic, and evolving systems
          o algorithmic game theory
          o computational biology
          o foundations of cloud computing and ubiquitous systems
          o quantum computation


Authors are invited to submit a paper with at most 12 pages in the LNCS style.
The paper should provide sufficient detail to allow the Program Committee to
evaluate its validity, quality, and relevance. If necessary, detailed
proofs can
be attached as an appendix. Simultaneous submission to other conferences
with published proceedings or journals is not allowed.
