ICTAC 2013 : 10th International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing
Conference Series : International Colloquium on Theoretical Aspects of Computing
Call For Papers
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.
Themes and Topics of Papers
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.
