CFP: THEORY AND APPLICATIONS OF MODELS OF COMPUTATION (TAMC 2008) deadline extension

http://ictt.xidian.edu.cn/tamc2008/

*** LNCS PAPER SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 5, 2007 ***

*******************************************************************************

5th ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THEORY AND APPLICATIONS OF MODELS OF COMPUTATION (TAMC 2008)

Xi'an, P.R. of China, April 25-29, 2008

http://ictt.xidian.edu.cn/tamc2008/

*******************************************************************************

LOCATION:

As one of the most important cities in Chinese history, Xi'an is one of the Four Great Ancient Capitals of China for it has been the capital of 13 dynasties, including the Zhou, Qin, Han, and the Tang. Xi'an is also renowned for being the eastern terminus of the Silk Road and for the location of the Terracotta Army made during the Qin Dynasty. The city has more than 3,100 years of history.

CONFERENCE DESCRIPTION:

The three main themes of TAMC 2008 will be Computability, Complexity, and Algorithms. It aims to bring together researchers with an interest in theoretical computer science, algorithmic mathematics, and applications to the physical sciences. Typical but not exclusive topics of interest include:

- algorithms and data structures
- computational complexity
- cryptography
- computational geometry
- computational game theory
- algorithmic graph theory and combinatorics
- algorithmic algebra
- number theory and coding theory
- learning theory
- computational biology
- theoretical problems in networks and security
- quantum computing
- randomness - on-line algorithms and parallel algorithms
- natural computation
- models of computation
- automata and neural networks
- continuous and real computation
- computable mathematics
- relative computability and degree structures
- Turing definability
- generalised and higher type computation
- proofs and computation
- physical computability - decidability and undecidability

STRUCTURE:

TAMC 2008 will consist of:

- 2 invited plenary talks
- 10 invited special session talks
- accepted LNCS contributions
- social programme
