FCT 2011 - 18th International Symposium on Fundamentals of Computation Theory Oslo, Norway


Submission Deadline:          Tuesday,  5.  April 2011
Author Notification:          Monday,   6.  June  2011
Camera ready manuscript:      Friday   17.  June  2011

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).


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


Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original unpublished research in all areas of theoretical computer science. Topics of interest include (but are 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

The submission drafts should have at most 12 pages and be formated 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.
Paper submission and reviewing is handled via EasyChair:
