CALL FOR PAPERS: Reachability Problems, 17-19 Sep 2012, Bordeaux, FRANCE

http://rp12.labri.fr/

RP 2012

The 6th Workshop on Reachability Problems will be hosted by LaBRI (Laboratoire Bordelais de 
Recherche en Informatique), Universit de Bordeaux, France.

The Reachability Workshop is specifically aimed at gathering together scholars from diverse 
disciplines and backgrounds interested in reachability problems that appear in
- Algebraic structures
- Computational models
- Hybrid systems
- Logic
- Verification

Invited Speakers:
================

- Mikolaj Bojanczyk, Warsaw
- Antonin Kucera, Brno
- Joel Ouaknine, Oxford
- Igor Walukiewicz, Bordeaux

Submissions:
===========
Papers presenting original contributions related to reachability problems in different 
computational models and systems are being sought.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
Reachability for infinite state systems, rewriting systems; Reachability analysis in counter/ 
timed/ cellular/ communicating automata; Petri-Nets; computational aspects of semigroups, 
groups and rings; Reachability in dynamical and hybrid systems; frontiers between decidable 
and undecidable reachability problems; complexity and decidability aspects; predictability in 
iterative maps and new computational paradigms

Authors are invited to submit a draft of a full paper with at most 12 pages (in LaTeX, formatted 
according to LNCS guidelines) via the conference web page.
Proofs omitted due to space constraints must be put into an appendix to be read by the program 
committee members at their discretion.
Submissions deviating from these guidelines risk rejection.
Electronic submissions should be formatted in postscript or pdf. Simultaneous submission to other 
conferences or workshops with published proceedings is not allowed.

Final version: 5 July, 2012
Conference: 17-19 September, 2012

Proceedings
===========

The Conference Proceedings will be published as the volume of the Springer Verlag LNCS (Lecture 
Notes in Computer Science) series and distributed at the Conference. We plan also to publish 
selected papers in a special issue of a high quality journal following the regular referee 
procedure.
