CALL FOR PAPERS: Reachability Problems, 25-27 Sep 2013, Uppsala, SWEDEN

http://www.it.uu.se/conf/RP2013/

The Department of Information Technology will organize the 7th International
Workshop on Reachability Problems (RP'2013). This event will take place at
Norrlands nation in the heart of central Uppsala, 25 - 27 September 2013.

Papers presenting original contributions related to reachability problems
in different computational models and systems are being sought.
This will also be the occasion to review recent breakthroughs by
renown invited experts and survey emerging trends and emphasize
on key open challenges. Participants are kindly encouraged to discuss
on core scientific issues that need to be further tackled.

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 and Verification


Invited Speakers:

- Patricia Bouyer-Decitre (Cachan, France)
- Daniel Kroening (Oxford, UK)
- Rupak Majumdar (MPI-SWS, Germany)
- Shaz Qadeer (Microsoft Research Redmond, USA)
- Thomas Schwentick (TU Dortmund University, Germany)


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 pdf.
Simultaneous submission to other  conferences or workshops
with published proceedings is not allowed.

Important Dates

- Submission deadline: 24 May 2013
- Notification to authors: 2 July 2013
- Final version: 12 July 2013
- Workshop: 25 - 27 September 2013

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.
