Present CFP : 2024

The MFCS conference series on Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science is a high-quality venue for original research in all branches of Theoretical Computer Science.

MFCS is among the conferences with the longest history in the field — the first conference in the series was held already in 1972. Traditionally, the conference moved between the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Poland, while since 2013, the conference has traveled around Europe.

In 2024, at its 49th edition, MFCS will be held as a physical event in Bratislava, Slovakia.

The program committee encourages submission of original research papers in all areas of theoretical computer science, including (but not limited to) the following:

algebraic and co-algebraic methods in computer science
algorithms and data structures
automata and formal languages
combinatorics on words, trees, and other structures
computational complexity (structural and model-related)
computational geometry
computer-aided verification
computer assisted reasoning
concurrency theory
cryptography and security
cyber physical systems, databases and knowledge-based systems
formal specifications and program development
foundations of computing
logics in computer science
mobile computing
models of computation
parallel and distributed computing
quantum computing
semantics and verification of programs
theoretical issues in artificial intelligence and machine learning
types in computer science

Submission Guidelines

Papers should be submitted electronically through EasyChair.

Submissions should be formatted using the LIPIcs style with length not exceeding 12 pages (excluding references and an optional appendix). References and an optional appendix can go beyond the 12 pages; the appendix will be consulted at the discretion of the program committee. It is mandatory to use the LIPIcs style for submissions.

No prior publication or simultaneous submission to other conferences or journals are allowed (except preprint repositories such as arXiv or workshops without formal published proceedings).

There is no need to anonymize the submissions.

As in previous years, MFCS 2022 proceedings will be published in LIPIcs (Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics) under an open access license.

Selected articles will be invited to a special issue of Information and Computation
Important Dates

Submission Deadline: Friday, April 26, 2024 (Anywhere on Earth)
Notification: Monday, June 24, 2024
Conference: August 26 — 30, 2024,
