[DMANET] TCS 2014 cfp

TCS 2014
8th IFIP International Conference on Theoretical Computer Science
September 1-3, 2014 Rome, Italy

Held in conjunction with the 25th Conference on Concurrency Theory (CONCUR 2014)

We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this message.


Under the patronage of the International Federation of Information
Processing (IFIP), since year 2000 the IFIP Technical Committee 1
(Foundations of Computer Science) has organized a series of biannual
international conferences in Theoretical Computer Science. After
Sendai (2000), Montreal (2002), Toulouse (2004), Santiago (2006),
Milano (2008), Brisbane (2010), and Amsterdam (2012), the 8th edition
will be held in Rome in September 2014, in cooperation with the IFIP
Working Group 2.2 (Formal Description of Programming Concepts) and in
conjunction with the 25th Conference on Concurrency Theory. We call
for papers in all areas of Theoretical Computer Science: they will be
evaluated by two committees:

Track A: Algorithms, Complexity and Models of Computation

Track B: Logic, Semantics, Specification and Verification


Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest include:

Track A - analysis and design of algorithms; automata and formal
languages; cellular automata and systems; combinatorial, graph and
optimization algorithms; computational learning theory; computational
complexity; computational geometry; cryptography; descriptive
complexity; evolutionary and genetic computing; experimental
algorithms; mobile computing; molecular computing and algorithmic
aspects of bioinformatics; network computing; neural computing;
parallel and distributed algorithms; probabilistic and randomized
algorithms; quantum computing; structural information and
communication complexity.

Track B - automata theory; automated deduction; constructive and
non-standard logics in computer science; concurrency theory and
foundations of distributed and mobile computing; database theory;
finite model theory; formal aspects of program analysis, foundations
of hybrid and real-time systems; lambda and combinatory calculi;
logical aspects of computational complexity; modal and temporal
logics; model checking and verification; probabilistic systems; logics
and semantics of programs; foundations of security; term rewriting;
specifications; type, proof and category theory in computer science.


Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of at most 15 pages
(LNCS style with at least 11-point font size) to arrive before April
27, 2014. If more space is needed, a clearly marked appendix, to be
read at the discretion of the program committee, may be included if
desired. Submission will be handled by EasyChair. Further information
and submission details can be found on the Conference web page.
Simultaneous submissions to other conferences with published
proceedings are not allowed.


The conference proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in
Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. Selected papers from
TCS 2014 will be invited to a special issue of the Journal Theoretical
Computer Science.


Deadline for submission: April 27, 2014.
Notification of acceptance: June 25, 2014.
Final manuscript due: July 6, 2014.
Conference: September 1-3, 2014.
