The 15th International Conference on Reachability Problems (RP'21)
is being organised by the Department of Computer Science
at the University of Liverpool.

Papers presenting original contributions related to reachability problems
in different computational models and systems are being sought.
This will also be the occasion to review recent breakthroughs
by renowned invited experts and survey emerging trends and emphasise
on key open challenges. Participants are kindly encouraged to discuss
core scientific issues that need to be further tackled.

The conference proceedings will be published in
Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
A selection of articles among the contributed papers
will be invited to a special issue of a journal (TBA).

The conference is specifically aimed at gathering together
scholars from diverse disciplines and backgrounds interested
in reachability problems that appear in

- Algebraic structures
- Automata theory and formal languages
- Computational game theory
- Concurrency and distributed computation
- Decision procedures in computational models
- Graphs and dynamical networks
- Hybrid dynamical systems
- Logic and model checking
- Verification of finite and infinite-state systems

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- reachability problems in infinite-state systems,
- rewriting systems, dynamical and hybrid systems;
- reachability problems in computational games and distributed systems;
- reachability problems in dynamical networks,
- reachability problems in logic and verification;
- reachability problems in formal methods;
- reachability analysis in different computational models,
counter timed/ cellular/ communicating automata;
- Petri nets; computational and combinatorial aspects of algebraic structures
(semigroups, groups and rings);
- frontiers between decidable and undecidable reachability problems;
- predictability in iterative maps and new computational paradigms.

GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION. There are two categories of submissions:

Authors are invited to submit an extended abstract of a full paper
with at most 12 pages (excluding the bibliography and potential appendices)
formatted according to the LNCS guidelines.

Authors are asked to submit their papers through EasyChair.
Submission deadline for full papers on July 8 AoE.

In addition to the formal presentations based on our LNCS proceedings volume,
we invite researchers to submit a paper which recently appeared (or which is going to appear)
in proceedings of another conference, or which has not yet been submitted. N
either the paper nor the abstract will be published in the proceedings.
