[PVS] Second Call for Papers: MACIS 2011



[Apologies if you receive multiple copies]

MACIS 2011 - Fourth International Conference on
Mathematical Aspects of Computer and Information Sciences
Beijing, China, October 19-21, 2011

http://macis2011.cc4cm.org/

CALL FOR PAPERS

MACIS is a series of conferences where foundational research on
theoretical and practical problems of mathematics for computing and
information processing may be presented and discussed. MACIS also
addresses experimental and case studies, scientific and engineering
computation, design and implementation of algorithms and software
systems, and applications of mathematical methods and tools to
outstanding and emerging problems in applied computer and information
sciences. Each conference focuses on two or three themes.

The themes for MACIS 2011 are:

- Design and Analysis of Complex Systems
- Numeric and Symbolic Constraint Solving
- Cryptography and Coding Theory

see the end of this call for a detailed list of topics.

SUBMISSION

Potential participants of MACIS 2011 are invited to submit extended
abstracts (3-4 pages) or full papers describing their work to be
presented at the conference. The submitted extended abstracts and full
papers will be reviewed by members of the Program Committee (PC) for
soundness and relevance to the conference. Submission of original
research papers is encouraged, while published material and work in
progress will also be considered for presentation at the conference.
Electronic submissions are strongly preferred using EasyChair

http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=macis2011

or should be sent by e-mail as .pdf attachments to the PC Co-chair:

Dr. Ilias S. Kotsireas
Wilfrid Laurier University
Waterloo ON, CANADA
e-mail: ikotsire@wlu.ca

Accepted extended abstracts and full papers will be printed for
distribution at the conference. Authors of the extended abstracts and
full papers accepted for presentation at the conference will be
invited to submit their full and/or revised papers for publication in
special issues of Mathematics in Computer Science
(MCS - http://www.cc4cm.org/mcs) by Birkhaeuser/Springer after the
meeting. The submitted papers will be formally reviewed by PC members
and external referees according to the refereeing procedure of MCS.
