CAI 2019 : 8th International Conference on Algebraic Informatics
Call For Papers
CAI is the biennial conference serving the community interested in the intersection of theoretical computer science, algebra, and related areas.
In 2019 it will feature invited presentations and a selective single-track program of contributed papers describing original and unpublished research.
Submission deadline: January 25, 2019 (DEADLINE EXTENDED)
Notification: March 15, 2019
Final version: April 5, 2019
Registration: May 20, 2019
CAI 2019 invites authors to submit high-quality manuscripts (in PDF format) reporting original unpublished research in the topics covered by the conference.
Papers should be submitted electronically through EasyChair at the following link
Submissions should be formatted according to the usual LNCS article style and should not exceed 12 pages (including all references). If additional space is needed, a clearly marked appendix can be added. The appendix will not be published, so the merit and results of the contribution should also be understandable without it.
Simultaneous submission to other conferences or workshops with published proceedings is not allowed. It is required that each accepted paper will be presented at the symposium by one of its authors.
*List of Topics*
Topics include, but are not limited to, the following areas of interest (ordered alphabetically). Papers covering other areas will be given due consideration by the program committee.

The proceedings of CAI 2019 will be published in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series by Springer.
Selected papers will be invited to a special issue of the Elsevier’s journal Information and Computation, devoted to CAI 2019.
CAI 2019 will take place in Niš (Serbia), one of the oldest cities in the Balkans and Europe, which since ancient times has been considered a gateway between the East and the West.
The conference is hosted at the University of Niš, and organized by the Faculty of Sciences and Mathematics of this university.
More information on the host can be found in the following websites:

A limited number of rooms for the participants of CAI 2019 have been pre-reserved in the New City Hotel in Niš (www.newcityhotelnis.com). The rooms will be reserved until 1st May 2019.
Participants should book rooms themselves, by email to the address email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org, and to note that they are guests of the conference CAI 2019, for which pre-reservation was agreed by Professor Miroslav Ćirić.
The offered room prices, for a standard room, are the following:
1/1 - 52,3 € per room
1/2 - 69,6 € per room
The prices include overnight stay, breakfast, insurance and taxes.
Participants can also book some other cheaper hotel, either via booking.com or some other room booking service, or directly, via email.
Our recommendation is:
Garni Hotel Consul (very good but cheap 3star hotel, 10 minutes walk to the conference location, http://www.consulaccommodation.rs/)
ArtLoft Garni Hotel (4star hotel, 10 minutes walk to the conference location)
Garni Hotel Eter (3star hotel, 5 minutes walk to the conference location)
