Submission deadline (REGULAR/SHORT papers): September 17, Sunday (extended)
(SHORT papers are decided on a rolling basis)
Notification deadline for all submissions: October 9, Monday
Registration opens: October 2, Monday
Camera-ready due: October 15, Sunday

Deadlines are firm; late submissions will not be considered.

+++ MACIS 2017 Organization +++

Topics: quantifier elimination and decision procedures; global optimization; differential equations; numeric, symbolic, interval and hybrid solution techniques; satisfiability modulo theories; combinations of logics and deductive engines; applications, especially in systems analysis and formal verification; solving (parametric) polynomial systems

Track 2: Combinatorics and Codes in Computer Science
Track Chairs: Daniel Augot (INRIA & Ecole Polytechnique, France), Alexander May (Ruhr-University Bochum, Germany), Alfred Wassermann (University of Bayreuth, Germany)
Topics: combinatorics, enumerative, combinatorial designs, their analysis and algorithmic constructions of them, complexity problems in combinatorics; codes constructions, decoding methods and their complexity, information theory aspects, Kolmogorov complexity

Track 3: Data Modeling and Analysis
Track Chairs: Xiaoyu Chen (Beihang University, China) Joachim Giesen (Friedrich Schiller University Jena, Germany), Giorgos Kollias (IBM Research, USA)
Topics: knowledge discovery; data mining; differential privacy, pattern recognition; complex knowledge - representation and management; foundations and theories for data analysis - systems; design and analysis of machine learning algorithms, statistical analysis for big data

Track 4: Mathematical Aspects of Information Security and Cryptography
Track Chairs: Jan Camenisch (IBM Research, Switzerland), Stefan Dziembowski (University of Warsaw, Poland), Guenael Renault (ANSSI, France)
Topics: security models; formal methods for security and privacy; design and analysis of algebraic, elliptic, number theoretical, code-based, lattice-based and hash-based cryptographic primitives; algebraic cryptanalysis, algebraic attacks, number theoretical algorithms, mathematical foundations of post-quantum cryptography; (lattices, codes); algorithms and software for symbolic computation in cryptography
