10th International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing

                 ***  Call For Papers  ***

                    September 4-6, 2013

                    Shanghai, China





ICTAC 2013 is the 10th International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing, the latest in a series founded by the International Institute for Software Technology of the United Nations University (UNU-IIST). ICTAC 2013 will bring together practitioners and researchers from academia, industry and government to present research and to exchange ideas and experience addressing challenges in both theoretical aspects of computing and in the exploitation of theory through methods and tools for system development. The other main purpose is to promote cooperation in research and education between participants and their institutions, from developing and industrial countries, as in the mandate of the United Nations University.




ICTAC 2013 calls for regular research papers on theories of computation and programming, foundations of software engineering, and on formal techniques in software design and verification; short papers on recent work or proposals of challenges in new programming paradigms such as Cyber-Physical Systems, Cloud Computing and Social Networks; and papers about tools that support formal techniques for software modeling, system design and verification. 


The topical areas of the conference include, but not limited to


Automata theory and formal languages;

Principles and semantics of programming languages;

Theories of concurrency, mobility and reconfiguration;

Logics and their applications;

Software architectures and their models, refinement and verification;

Relationship between software requirements, models and code;

Program static and dynamic analysis and verification;

Software specification, refinement, verification and testing;

Model checking and theorem proving;

Models of object and component systems;

Coordination and feature interaction;

Integration of theories, formal methods and tools for engineering computing systems;

Service-oriented architectures: models and development methods;

Models of concurrency, security, and mobility;

Theory of distributed, grid and cloud computing;

Real-time, embedded, hybrid and cyber-physical systems;

Type and category theory in computer science;

Models for learning and education;

Case studies, theories, tools and experiments of verified systems;

Domain-specific modeling and technology: examples, frameworks and experience.

Challenges and foundations in the environmental modeling and monitoring, healthcare, and disaster management.




As for the past editions, it is the plan that the proceedings of ICTAC 2013 will be published by Springer in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and will be available at the colloquium. A special issue of a journal with extended version of selected papers from ICTAC 2013 is under negotiation. Submissions to the colloquium must not have been published or be concurrently considered for publication elsewhere. All submissions will be judged on the basis of originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the conference. Submissions can be Regular Papers, Short Papers or Tool Papers. Short papers can present recent or ongoing work or discuss new ideas which are at an early stage of development and have not been thoroughly evaluated yet. Papers should be written in English. Regular Papers should not exceed 18 pages and Short Papers and tool papers should be between 5 and 10 pages in LNCS format (see http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html for details). Papers must be submitted at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ictac2013. Short papers and tool papers must contain clear reference to the background theories and techniques; and a tool paper must further provide a link to a webpage that contains a tutorial and demo of the tool. All queries should be sent to the e-mail address ictac2013@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.
