[DMANET] MATCOS:: deadline extension & CFP

The deadline for submission to the MATCOS conference was extended due to
several requests. It was moved to the end of Summer. Please, consider
sending the paper to MATCOS and coming to Adriatic Coast for an
interesting conference!

All the best and LPA

PS: Sincere apologize for multiple postings.

  Middle-European Conference on Applied Theoretical Computer Science

                      *** EXTENDED DEADLINE ***

            Koper, Slovenia, October 10th and 11th, 2019.

                       Held in conjunction with
          the 22nd Multi-Conference on Information Society,
   October 7th-11th, 2019, Ljubljana, Slovenia. (

Scope and Topics

During  the  past years,  other  fields  have used several  subjects,
methods and  approaches of  Theoretical Computer Science, and several
results have  been integrated  into practical applications. Solutions
for NP-hard  problems, algorithmic-oriented  AI and data science, new
models  and methods  in  system biology  and bioinformatics,  automata
theory  approaches in  software and  hardware verification,  practical
quantum computing  solutions and the development  of other prospective
new  models of  computation are  good examples  to buttress  the above

We set double aims  as the scope of this conference:  on one hand side
we expect ideas  and solutions from the field  of Theoretical Computer
Science   which   have   been   directly   applied   in real   world
applications. On the other side we want to collect theoretical results
based on some fruitful idea that  may be useful to adopt for practical

Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest include:
- Automata and formal languages, computability,
- Algorithms and data structures,
- Computational complexity,
- Artificial intelligence, machine learning,
- Optimization, approximation methods, NP-hard problems,
- Graph theory,
- Computational geometry.

There is a special emphasis on use in applications such as simulation,
bioinformatics,  digital signal  and image  processing, data  science,
digital forensics, logistics, smart homes/cities and IoT etc.
