SOFSEM (SOFtware SEMinar) is the annual, international conference devoted to
the theory and practice of computer science. Its aim is to foster cooperation
among professionals from academia and industry working in all modern areas of
computer science.

SOFSEM 2009 Program Committee Chair: Mogens Nielsen, Aarhus, Denmark.


The invited speakers for SOFSEM will include:

* Christian Attiogbe (University of Nantes, France)
* Christel Baier (University of Bonn, Germany)
* Nicole Immorlica (Northwestern University, USA)
* Radovan Janecek (BTO, HP Software)
* Marcin Jurdzinski (University of Warwick, UK)
* Giuseppe Longo (Ecole Normale Superieure, Paris, France)
* David Parkes (Harvard University, USA)


For the SOFSEM 2009 the following 4 tracks have been chosen:

* Foundations of Computer Science
Chair: Catuscia Palamidessi (Paris, France)
Co-chair: Frank Valencia (Paris, France)

* Theory and Practice of Software Services
Chair: Petr Tuma, Prague, Czech Republic

* Game Theoretic Aspects of ecommerce
Chair: Peter Bro Miltersen (Aarhus, Denmark)

* Techniques and Tools for Formal Verification
Chair: Antonin Kucera (Brno, Czech Republic)

Moreover, for students, there is the

* Student Research Forum
Chair: Maria Bielikova (Bratislava, Slovakia)

Details on each track and the Forum can be found on the conference web site.


Following the tradition of SOFSEM, the proceedings from SOFSEM 2009, including
invited and contributed papers, will be published in the Lecture Notes in
Computer Science Series by Springer-Verlag. Papers from the Student Research
Forum will be published in local proceedings.

Both proceedings will be distributed at the conference.


The venue of Sofsem 2009 will be OREA Hotel ARNIKA, Spindleruv mlyn, Czech
Republic. See for further details.
