FoSSaCS is one of the main conferences of ETAPS (European Joint Conferences on Theory And Practice of Software).

-- SCOPE --

FoSSaCS seeks original papers on foundational research with a clear significance for software science. The conference invites submissions on theories and methods to support the analysis, integration, synthesis, transformation, and verification of programs and software systems. The specific topics covered by the conference include, but are not limited to, the following:

Categorical models and logics;
Language theory, automata, and games;
Modal, spatial, and temporal logics;
Type theory and proof theory;
Concurrency theory and process calculi;
Rewriting theory;
Semantics of programming languages;
Program analysis, correctness, transformation, and verification;
Logics of programming;
Software specification and refinement;
Models of concurrent, reactive, stochastic, distributed, hybrid, and mobile systems;
Emerging models of computation;
Logical aspects of computational complexity;
Models of software security;
Logical foundations of data bases.

Submitted papers must be in English presenting original research. They must be unpublished and not submitted for publication to other conferences with published proceedings or to journals. In particular, simultaneous submission of the same contribution to other ETAPS conferences is forbidden. Submission by PC members is not possible. Submitted papers must respect a page limit of 15 pages. Additional material intended for the referees but not for publication in the final version - for example, details of proofs - may be placed in a clearly marked appendix that is not included in the page limit. Referees may ignore appendices and submitted papers must be understandable without them.

If the submission is accepted, one of the authors must attend the conference to give the presentation.

The proceedings will be published in the Advanced Research in Computing and Software Science (ARCoSS) subline Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.

Papers must follow the formatting guidelines specified by Springer at
the URL

and be submitted electronically in pdf through the Easychair author interface (the submission site opens on September 15th):

Submissions not adhering to the specified format and length may be rejected immediately.
