CFP: BCTCS 2016, Belfast, UK (32nd British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science)


         British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science
                    Queen's University Belfast
                       22nd-24th March 2016

The 32nd British Colloquium for Theoretical Computer Science (BCTCS)
will be hosted by the Department of Computer Science, Queen's University
of Belfast, from 22nd to 24th March, 2016.

The purpose of BCTCS is to provide a forum in which researchers in
theoretical computer science can meet, present research findings, and
discuss developments in the field. It also aims to provide an
environment in which PhD students can gain experience in presenting
their work, and benefit from contact with established researchers.

The scope of the colloquium includes all aspects of theoretical computer
science, including automata theory, algorithms, complexity theory,
semantics, formal methods, concurrency, types, languages and logics.
Both computer scientists and mathematicians are welcome to attend, as
are participants from outside of the UK.

The colloquium features both invited and contributed talks.  This year
the invited speakers are as follows:

   - Michael J Butler, University of Southampton

   - Rob Gilles, Queen's University Belfast

   - Magnús Halldórsson, Reykjavik University

   - Matthew Hennessy, Trinity College Dublin

    - Valerie King, University of Victoria, Canada
          (The LMS Keynote Speaker in Discrete Maths)

We are grateful for support from the Heilbronn Institute for
Mathematical Research which will provide bursaries for 5 students to
cover registration fees and accommodation. If you wish to apply for a
bursary, please email as soon as possible, indicating
that you would be willing to give a contributed talk and stating the
name of your supervisor. Subsequently, a title and abstract should be
provided. The supervisor should write a letter of support to the same
email address, confirming that the student will attend BCTCS'16.

Participants wishing to give a 30 minute contributed talk on any topic
in the scope of the colloquium are invited to email a title and abstract
to Presentations from research students and early
career researchers are particularly encouraged. The titles and abstracts
of invited and contributed talks will appear in the Bulletin of the EATCS.
