43rd International Conference on Current Trends in Theory and Practice of Computer Science
January 16–20, 2017
Lero – Limerick, Ireland
SOFSEM (SOFtware SEMinar) is the annual international winter conference devoted to the theory and practice of computer science. SOFSEM aims to present the latest results and developments in research in academia and industry, in leading areas of computer science. The first SOFSEM was organized already in 1974.
SOFSEM consists of Invited Talks by prominent researchers, Contributed Talks selected from the submitted papers, and the Student Research Forum. The program is organized in plenary talks and parallel tracks devoted to original research in the selected research areas.
The SOFSEM 2017 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.

Student Research Forum
The SOFSEM 2017 Student Research Forum (SRF) will provide young researchers with valuable scientific feedback and networking. Master and PhD students are invited to present their research ideas and projects, discuss them with the scientific community, and establish collaborations in their field of research.
Slovak Society for Computer Science is a sponsor of the Best Student Paper Award with the allocated amount of 250 Euro.
Lero (The Irish Software Engineering Research Centre) brings together leading software engineering (SE) teams from Universities and Institutes of Technology in a coordinated centre of research excellence with a strong industry focus. Lero has raised the level and profile of Irish software engineering research with such effect that it is now one of the best known and highly regarded SE research centres in the world.
SOFSEM has a long-standing tradition of facilitating discussions and collegial interactions. SOFSEM is well-known for its familiar and inspiring atmosphere, and as a meeting place for active and leading computer scientists. SOFSEM 2017 will be held in Limerick, the capital of Ireland’s Mid-West region with an urban and hinterland population of over 200,000 and is noted for its shopping, its dining and entertainment, its historical significance, as well as its contributions to the arts. Limerick has something to offer everybody thanks to its many cultural, historical, architectural, sporting, shopping and business activities. With almost 50 per cent of Limerick’s population under the age of 30, it is a vibrant, living, cosmopolitan city. The County of Limerick is a place of rural charm and great beauty, with a gently undulating landscape that varies from the mountains of Ballyhoura in the Golden Vale to the Shannon Estuary.
See you at SOFSEM 2017!
