11th International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing 17-20 September 2014, Bucharest, Romania

             CALL FOR PAPERS -- ICTAC 2014

   11th International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing
               17-20 September 2014, Bucharest, Romania

ICTAC 2014 is the 11th International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects 
of Computing and will bring together practitioners and researchers from 
academia, industry and government to present research and to exchange 
ideas and experience addressing challenges in both theoretical aspects 
of computing and in the exploitation of theory through methods and tools 
for system development. Another aim of ICTAC is to bring together 
researchers working on theoretical aspects of computing in order to 
present their recent results and to discuss new ideas concerning 
computer science.


ICTAC 2014 calls for regular research papers on theories of computation 
and programming, foundations of software engineering and on formal 
techniques in software design and verification, as well as papers about 
tools that support formal techniques for software modeling, system 
design and verification.
The topical areas of the conference include, but not limited to

  * Automata theory and formal languages;
  * Principles and semantics of programming languages;
  * Theories of concurrency, mobility and reconfiguration;
  * Logics and their applications;
  * Software architectures, their models, refinement and verification;
  * Relationship between software requirements, models and code;
  * Program static and dynamic analysis and verification;
  * Software specification, refinement, verification and testing;
  * Model checking and theorem proving;
  * Models of object and component systems;
  * Coordination and feature interaction;
  * Integration of theories, formal methods and tools for
    engineering computing systems;
  * Service-oriented architectures: models and development methods;
  * Models of concurrency, security, and mobility;
  * Theory of distributed, grid and cloud computing;
  * Real-time, embedded, hybrid and cyber-physical systems;
  * Type and category theory in computer science.


As for the past editions, the proceedings of ICTAC 2014 will be 
published by Springer in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science 
(LNCS) and will be available at the colloquium. Special issue of few 
journals with extended version of selected papers from ICTAC 2014 is 
under negotiation. Submissions to the colloquium must not have been 
published or be concurrently considered for publication elsewhere. All 
submissions will be judged on the basis of originality, contribution to 
the field, technical and presentation quality, as well as their 
relevance to the conference.

Regular Papers should not exceed 18 pages in LNCS format (see 
http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for details). Papers must 
be submitted by using www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ictac2014.
