 Scope and Topics

 TAMC 2014 aims at bringing together a wide range of researchers with
 interests in computational theory and applications. The main themes of the
 conference are computability, complexity, algorithms, models of
 computation and systems theory. Typical but not exclusive topics of
 interest include:

 algebraic computation
 algorithmic coding theory
 algorithmic number theory
 approximation algorithms
 automata theory
 circuit complexity
 combinatorial algorithms
 computational biology, and biological computing
 computational complexity [including circuits, communication,
 derandomization, PCPs, proof complexity, structural complexity]
 computational game theory
 computational logic
 computational geometry
 continuous and real computation
 data structures
 design and analysis of algorithms
 distributed algorithms
 domain models [Assets, Price of Abstraction, frameworks]
 fixed parameter tractability
 geometric algorithms
 graph algorithms
 information and communication complexity
 learning theory
 memory hierarchy tradeoffs
 model theory for computing [modal and temporal logics, specification,
 verification, synthesis or automated software construction, aesthetics,
 software behavior,
 transformation of models]
 natural computation
 nature inspired computing
 network algorithms
 networks in nature and society
 online algorithms
 parallel algorithms
 philosophy of computing [emerging paradigms, morality, intentionality]
 privacy and security
 property testing
 proof complexity
 process models [for software construction, validating software under
 construction, supply - chain]
 quantum computing
 randomness, pseudo-randomness
 randomized algorithms
 space - time tradeoffs
 streaming algorithms
