8th Conference on Reversible Computation

(RC 2016)

July 7th-8th, 2016, Bologna, Italy

Abstract Submission: Sun, January 31th, 2016

Submission Deadline: Sun, February 7th, 2016


Reversible computation has a growing number of promising application areas
such as low power design, coding/decoding, program debugging, testing,
database recovery, discrete event simulation, reversible algorithms,
reversible specification formalisms, reversible programming languages,
process algebras, and the modeling of biochemical systems. Furthermore,
reversible logic provides a basis for quantum computation with its
applications, for example, in cryptography and in the development of highly
efficient algorithms. First reversible circuits and quantum circuits have
been implemented recently and are seen as promising alternatives to
conventional CMOS technology.

The conference will bring together researchers from computer science,
mathematics, and physics to discuss new developments and directions
for future research in Reversible Computation. This includes
applications of reversibility in quantum computation. Research papers,
tutorials, tool demonstrations, and work-in-progress reports are
within the scope of the conference. Contributions on the following
topics in Reversible Computation are welcome:

* Applications

* Architectures

* Algorithms

* Circuit Design

* Debugging

* Fault Tolerance and Error Correction

* Hardware

* Information Theory

* Physical Realizations

* Programming Languages

* Quantum Computation

* Software

* Synthesis

* Theoretical Results

* Testing

* Verification

===== Important Dates =====

- Abstract Submission: Sun, January 31th, 2016

- Submission Deadline: Sun, February 7th, 2016

- Notification to Authors: Sun, March 21st, 2016

- Final Version: Sun, April 10th, 2016

- Conference: Thu-Fri, July 7th and 8th, 2016

===== Invited speakers =====

* Samson Abramsky (University of Oxford)

* Austin Fowler (Google)

===== Paper submission =====

Contributions must be written in English and report on original,
unpublished work, not submitted for publication elsewhere. The
submissions must be prepared using Springer’s LNCS style. Submissions
not adhering to the specified constraints may be rejected without
review. Papers can be submitted electronically in pdf via the RC 2016
interface of the EasyChair system:

We solicit the following kinds of submissions:

- full research papers (16 pages maximum)

- tutorials (16 pages maximum),

- work-in-progress or tool demonstration papers (6 pages maximum).

Additional material intended for reviewers 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. Reviewers are at liberty to ignore appendices and papers must
be understandable without them.

Each paper will undergo a peer review of at least 3 anonymous
reviewers. The conference proceedings will be published by Springer in
the LNCS Series (to be confirmed).
