42th International Conference on Current Trends in Theory and Practice of Computer Science
January 23-28, 2016
Hotel Sklar - Harrachov, Czech Republic

SOFSEM (SOFtware SEMinar) is an annual international winter conference devoted to the theory and practice of computer science.
SOFSEM aims at presenting the latest results and developments in research in academia and industry, in leading areas of computer science.


Abstract deadline: July 13, 2015
Full paper deadline: July 27, 2015
Acceptance notification: September 24, 2015
Conference: January 23-28, 2016


SOFSEM 2016 will consist of three tracks, which include the following topics:

chaired by Rusins Freivalds (University of Latvia, Latvia)

* algorithms and data structures, including approximation, sequential,
distributed, parallel, online, randomized, or graph algorithms,
* automata and formal languages, including grammars and rewriting,
* complexity theory, including computational, descriptional, and parametrized,
* computational game theory,
* decidability and undecidability questions,
* discrete mathematics related to computer science,
* logic in computer science,
* quantum computing, algorithms, and complexity

SOFTWARE ENGINEERING: Methods, Tools, Applications

* multimedia, spatial, and temporal data and knowledge,
* parallel databases,
* probabilistic databases, uncertainty and approximate querying,
* query and natural language processing,
* provenance and trust in data management and knowledge engineering,
* stream data management,
* web and semantic web data and knowledge.

Moreover, the traditional `STUDENT RESEARCH FORUM' will be open for PhD students offering them the opportunity to publish and discuss their projects in the field of theory and practice of Computer Science.
The papers not accepted to the regular tracks may be selected by the Program Committee to be presented at the SOFSEM Student Research Forum.



Osamu Watanabe (Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan)
Sanjay Jain (National University of Singapore, Singapore)

SOFTWARE ENGINEERING: Methods, Tools, Application track

Michael Goedicke (University of Duisburg-Essen, Germany)
Dániel Varró (Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Hungary)


Norman Paton (University of Manchester, United Kingdom)
Themis Palpanas (Paris Descartes University, France)

SOFSEM 2016 proceedings containing all invited and contributed papers will be published in the series Lecture Notes in Computer Science by Springer Verlag, in the prestigious subline ARCOSS: Advanced Research in Computing and Software Science.
SOFSEM 2016 papers should be submitted via the Easychair system, following the instructions available at:
Papers must not exceed 12 pages in the LNCS format (PDF or DOC format).

We hope you find the tracks and invited speakers selected for the next SOFSEM interesting, and that you will join us and enjoy the traditional, inspiring SOFSEM atmosphere.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Harrachov at SOFSEM 2016!
