[DMANET] TAMC 2016 - Final Call for Papers

The 13th Annual Conference on Theory and Applications of Models of

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


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
