CFP:: MATCOS 2010 -- deadline extension!!

Announcement and Call for Papers

Mini-conference on Applied Theoretical Computer Science
Koper, Slovenia, October 13th and 14th, 2010.

Held in conjunction with the 13th Multi-Conference on Information
Society, October 11-15, 2010, Ljubljana, Slovenia. (

Scope and Topics

During the past years, several subjects, methods and approaches of
Theoretical Computer Science have been used by other fields, and
several results have been integrated into real world
applications. Some examples for the above nature are practical
solutions for NP-hard problems, algorithmics oriented AI and data
mining solutions, new models and methods in system biology and
bioinformatics, automata theory solutions in software and hardware
verification, prospective new models of computation and future
computer architecture.

The scope of the conference is to collect ideas and solutions from the
field of Theoretical Computer Science which can be directly applied in
other fields or being potential to be integrated in real world

Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest include:

* automata and formal languages, computability
* algorithms and data structutes
* computational complexity
* artificial intelligence, machine learning
* optimization, approximation methods, NP-hard problems
* graph theory

Special emphasis on use in applications such as simulation,
Bioinformatics, Digital signal and image processing, logistics etc.

Program Committee:

Paper submission:

Papers presenting original research in conference topics are being
sought. Papers must be in English and provide sufficient details to
allow the program committee to assess their merits. Submissions, as
well as final versions, are limited to 4 pages sharp long abstracts
and will be published in an Information Society multiconference
proceedings. Revised versions of selected full papers will appear in a
special issue of the journal Informatica ( The
instructions and the format for preparing the papers can be downloaded

Only electronic submissions will be accepted (in pdf format), via


by email ( with the subject "MATCOS submission".

Organized by Primorska Institute of Natural Sciences and Technology
