-----------------------------------------------------------------------

ICTCS-2014, the 2014 Italian Conference on Theoretical Computer Science,
is the 15th conference of the Italian Chapter of EATCS.  It will
be held in Perugia, September 17-19 2014 at the Department of
Mathematics and Computer Science.


The scope of the meeting is fostering the cross-fertilisation of
ideas stemming from different areas of theoretical computer science.
Hence, the Italian Conference on Theoretical Computer Science
represents an occasion for meeting and exchanging ideas and for
sharing experiences between researchers.  It also provides the ideal
environment where junior researchers and PhD students can meet
senior researchers.


Contributions in any area of theoretical computer science are
warmly solicited.  Typical, but not exclusive, topics of interest
include:

       agents
       algorithms
       argumentation
       automata theory
       automated theorem proving
       complexity theory
       computational logic
       computational social choice
       concurrency
       cryptography
       distributed computing
       dynamical systems
       formal methods
       game theory
       graph theory
       knowledge representation
       languages
       model checking
       process algebras
       quantum computing
       rewriting systems
       security and trust
       semantics
       specification and verification
       systems biology
       types



The event is open to both Italian and foreign researchers,
which are welcome to submit papers and attend the Conference.

Conference Chairs: Stefano Bistarelli & Andrea Formisano
E-mail: ictcs2014@dmi.unipg.it
Conference web-site: http://www.dmi.unipg.it/ictcs2014




Important dates:
================
Submission deadline: 27 May 2014
Notification of acceptance: 15 July 2014
Final version: 10 August 2014
Conference: 17-19 September 2014




Submissions:
============
Two types of contributions are solicited:

Communications: up to 5 pages in llncs style.
     Suitable for extended abstracts of papers already appeared, or
     submitted, or to be submitted, elsewhere; papers reporting on
     ongoing researches on which the authors wish to get feedback
     at ICTCS and possibly intended to be included in future
     publications; overviews of PhD-theses, research projects, etc...

Regular papers: up to 12 pages in llncs style.
     Full original papers, presenting novel results, not appeared or
     submitted elsewhere.

In case of need, to ease the rewiewing process, the authors of regular
papers may add an appendix containing further material (or indicate
a web site containing longer version of the paper). In any case the
reviewers are not required to consider such furhter material in their
evaluation.


For each accepted contribution, at least one of the authors is required
to attend at the conference and present the paper.
All accepted contribution (communications and regular papers), presented
at the conference, will appear in a number of CEUR Workshop Proceedings
(http://ceur-ws.org/).


Articles must be written in English and formatted using the
Springer LNCS style (see the details on the conference web site).



Submission page:
================
Authors are invited to submit their manuscripts in PDF via the
EasyChair system at the link:

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ictcs2014




Post-conference issue on Theoretical Computer Science:
======================================================

Selected papers from ICTCS-2014 will be invited to a special issue
of the journal Theoretical Computer Science.
The authors of a selection of the regular papers presented at the
conference will be asked to submit an improved version of their papers.
The selection will be determined by considering the outcome of the
conference reviewing phase.
The papers submitted for the journal issue should have been significantly
revised and extended with respect to the conference versions.
A second reviewing process, meeting the high standard of quality of the
international journal will select the papers to be accepted for the
special issue, among the invited ones.
