CALL FOR PAPERS: 5th International Conference on Algebra and Coalgebra in Computer Science: Tools workshop, September 3 - 6, 2013, Warsaw, POLAND- DEADLINE EXTENDED


CALCO Tools 2013

-- SCOPE --

CALCO aims to bring together researchers and practitioners with interests 
in foundational aspects, and both traditional and emerging uses of algebra 
and coalgebra in computer science. It is a high-level, bi-annual 
conference formed by joining the forces and reputations of CMCS (the 
International Workshop on Coalgebraic Methods in Computer Science), and 
WADT (the Workshop on Algebraic Development Techniques). Previous CALCO 
editions took place in Swansea (Wales, 2005), Bergen (Norway, 2007), Udine 
(Italy, 2009) and Winchester (UK, 2011). The fifth edition will be held in 
Warsaw, the capital of Poland.

As part of CALCO, a workshop dedicated to tools based on algebraic and/or 
coalgebraic principles, CALCO Tools, will be held alongside the main 
conference. Papers of this workshop will be included in the CALCO 

CALCO-Tools will take place on the same dates as the main CALCO 
conference, with no overlap between the technical programmes of the two 
events. Topics of interest include systems, prototypes, and tools 
developed specifically for the design, checking, execution, and 
verification of (co)algebraic specifications, but also tools targeting 
different application domains while making core or interesting use of 
(co)algebraic techniques.

Tool submissions should not exceed 5 pages in LNCS format. The accepted 
tool papers will be included in the final proceedings of the conference. 
The tools should be made available on the web at the time of submission. 
Each submission will be evaluated by at least three reviewers; one or more 
of the reviewers will be asked to download and use the tool. At least one 
of the authors of each tool paper must attend the conference to demo the 
tool. To submit a paper please visit our easychair submission site at

Warsaw, the capital of Poland, is a lively city with many historic 
monuments and sights, but also with a thriving business district. It is 
easily accessible via two airports: the main Chopin Airport, used by most 
international carriers, and the recently open Warsaw Modlin Airport (30 
minutes away by rail), used by budget airlines.
