CALL FOR PAPERS: British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science, 2-5 April 2012, Manchester (U.K.),
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. Participants wishing to give 30 minute contributed talks may simply to submit a title and abstract (100--300 words) by the deadline given below. Further details are available from the Colloquium website: http://bctcs2012.cs.manchester.ac.uk . Important dates: 16th January 2012 --- Registration/accommodation booking opens. 19th March 2012 --- Abstract submission deadline for participants wishing to give contributed talks. 2nd--5th April, 2012 --- Colloquium.
