Call For Papers

MFCS 2015 - 1st Call for Papers

40th International Symposium on Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science

August 24 - 28, 2015, Milano, Italy


The series of MFCS symposia, organized since 1972, has a long and
well-established tradition. The MFCS symposia encourage high-quality
research in all branches of theoretical computer science. Their broad
scope provides an opportunity to bring together researchers who do not
usually meet at specialized conferences. Quality papers presenting
original research on theoretical aspects of computer science are solicited.


Principal topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- algorithms and data structures (incl. sequential, parallel
distributed, randomized, approximation, graph, network, on-line
parameterized, optimization algorithms)
- algorithmic game theory
- algorithmic learning theory
- computational complexity (structural and model-related)
- computational geometry
- models of computation
- networks (incl. wireless, sensor, ad-hoc networks)
- parallel and distributed computing
- quantum computing
- automata, grammars and formal languages
- combinatorics on words, trees, and other structures
- bioinformatics
- computer-assisted reasoning
- concurrency theory
- cryptography and security
- databases and knowledge-based systems
- formal specifications and program development
- foundations of computing
- logic, algebra and categories in computer science
- types in computer science
- mobile computing
- semantics and verification of programs
- theoretical issues in artificial intelligence

Submissions to MFCS must not exceed 12 pages (in Springer-Verlag's
Lecture Notes style and including bibliography). If the authors believe
that more details are essential to substantiate the main claims, they
may include a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the
discretion of the program committee. Simultaneous submissions of papers
to any other conference with published proceedings or submitting
previously published papers is not allowed. Only electronic submissions
in the PDF format are accepted. Information about the submission
procedure will be available on the conference web page in due time. The
proceedings will be published in the new ARCoSS subline of Lecture Notes
in Computer Science by Springer-Verlag.


The conference is organized by the Università degli Studi di Milano,
Dipartimento di Informatica, in cooperation with EATCS.
