CALL FOR PAPERS: British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science, 2-5 April 2012, Manchester (U.K.),

http://bctcs2012.cs.manchester.ac.uk

The 28th British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science will be hosted by 
the School of Computer Science, University of Manchester, from 2nd to 5th 
April, 2012.

The purpose of BCTCS is to provide a forum in which researchers in theoretical 
computer science can meet, present research findings, and discuss developments 
in the field. It also aims to provide an environment in which PhD students can 
gain experience in presenting their work, and benefit from contact with 
established researchers. This year, BCTCS is part of the Alan Turing Year, and 
will be
collocated with the Automated Reasoning Workshop ARW 
(http://arw2012.cs.man.ac.uk/).

The scope of the colloquium includes all aspects of theoretical computer 
science, including automata theory, algorithms, complexity theory, semantics, 
formal methods, concurrency, types, languages and logics. Both computer 
scientists and mathematicians are welcome to attend, as are participants from 
outside of the UK.

The colloquium features both invited and contributed talks. This year's invited 
speakers are

    Rod Downey, School of Mathematics, Statistics and Operations Research,
      Victoria University of Wellington. (LMS Keynote Speaker in
      Discrete Mathematics)
    Mike Edmunds, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Cardiff.
    Reiner Haehnle, Fachbereich Informatik, Technische Universitaet Darmstadt.
    Nicole Schweikardt Institut fuer Informatik, Goethe-Universitaet,
      Frankfurt am Main.
