Deadline extension: ICTAC 2021 (International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing)

by Peter Olveczky, May 4, 2021

The ICTAC conference series aims at bringing together researchers and
practitioners from academia, industry and government to present research
and exchange ideas and experience addressing challenges in both theoretical
aspects of computing and the exploitation of theory through methods and
tools for system development. ICTAC also aims to promote research
cooperation between developing and industrial countries.

Overview and Scope:

The ICTAC conference series aims at bringing together researchers and
practitioners from academia, industry and government to present research
and exchange ideas and experience addressing challenges in both theoretical
aspects of computing and the exploitation of theory through methods and
tools for system development. ICTAC also aims to promote research
cooperation between developing and industrial countries.

The conference concerns all aspect of theoretical computer science,
including, but not limited to:

 * languages and automata
 * semantics of programming languages
 * logic in computer science
 * lambda calculus, type theory and category theory
 * domain-specific languages
 * theories of concurrency and mobility
 * theories of distributed computing
 * models of objects and components
 * coordination models
 * timed, hybrid, embedded and cyber-physical systems
 * security and privacy
 * static analysis
 * probabilistic and statistical verification
 * software verification
 * software testing
 * runtime verification
 * program generation and transformation
 * model checking and theorem proving
 * applications and case studies

Call for Papers:

We solicit submissions, related to the topics of ICTAC, in the
following categories:  

 * original research contributions (16 pages max, excluding references);
 * applications and experiences (16 pages max, excluding references);
 * short papers, with original work in progress or with proposals of new ideas
    and emerging challenges (6 pages max, excluding references); and
 * tool papers (6 pages max, excluding references).

All submissions must be original, unpublished, and not submitted concurrently
for publication elsewhere. Paper submission is done via EasyChair at
https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ictac2021. Papers must be
formatted according to the guidelines for Springer LNCS papers
(see http://www.springer.com/lncs), without modifications of margins
and other space-saving measures.

Publication:

All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings of the conference
that will be published as a volume in Springer's Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS) series.

The authors of a subset of accepted papers will be invited
to submit extended versions of their papers to a special issue
of the journal Theoretical Computer Science.
