[DMANET] TAMC 2016 - Call for papers

*** Apologies for multiple messages ***


The 13th Annual Conference on Theory and Applications of Models of Computation
Xi'an, China
July 20-22, 2016

Welcome to The 13th annual conference on Theory and Applications of Models of Computation (TAMC), which will take place at Xi'an, China from 20th to 22nd, July, 2016. The event is supported by School of Computer Science and Technology and School of Cyber Engineering, Xidian University.

Tangcheng Hotel
South Hanguang Road #229
Xi'an, China

All major events take place in this building. There is a fully equipped lecture hall with a capacity for 200 attendees as well as a series of lecture rooms, each of which can support 50 attendees. Of course, all participants of TAMC-16 will have free internet access during the conference.


Important Dates
Submission deadline: 11:59 pm EST March 6, 2016
Notification of authors: May 6, 2016
Final versions deadline: May 22, 2016

Post Conference Publications

Special issues of the journals Theoretical Computer Science and Mathematical Structures in Computer Science devoted to a selected set of accepted papers of the conference are planned.

Submission of Papers
Authors should submit an extended abstract (not a full paper).
The submission should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including motivation and a clear comparison with related work.
The length of the extended abstract should not exceed ten (10) letter-sized pages (not including bibliography and appendices.)
Submitted papers must describe work not previously published. They must not be submitted simultaneously to another conference with refereed proceedings. Each PC member is allowed to submit at most one paper. Research that is already submitted to a journal may be submitted to TAMC16, provided that (a) the PC chair is notified in advance that this is the case, and (b) it is not scheduled for journal publication before the conference.
The submission server is now available at
