Call For Papers

DCM 2018
12th International Workshop on Developments in Computational Models
A satellite event of FLoC 2018, Oxford
July 8, 2018

Several new models of computation have emerged in the last years, and many developments of traditional computation models have been proposed with the aim of taking into account the new demands of users of computer systems and the new capabilities of computation engines.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers who are currently developing new computation models or new features for traditional computation models, in order to foster their interaction, to provide a forum for presenting new ideas and work in progress, and to enable newcomers to learn about current activities in this area. The proceedings are produced after the meeting, so that authors can incorporate the workshop feedback in the published papers.

DCM 2018 will take place in Oxford on July 8, as a one-day satellite event of FLoC 2018. This will be the 12th event in the series since 2005 - see the DCM website ( for details of previous events.


Topics of interest include all abstract models of computation and their applications to the development of programming languages and systems. This includes (but is not limited to):

* Functional calculi: lambda-calculus, pattern-calculi, combinatory logic, term and graph rewriting;
* Object calculi;
* Interaction-based systems: interaction nets, games, agent and multi-agent systems;
* Concurrent models: process calculi, action graphs, distributed systems;
* Calculi expressing locality, mobility, and active data;
* Quantum computational models;
* Biological or chemical models of computation;


Authors are invited to submit a short paper (max 8 pages). Preliminary proceedings will be available at the workshop. Papers should be written in English, and submitted in PostScript or PDF format, using the EPTCS style files ( Submission is through the Easychair website.
