5th International Conference on Algebra and Coalgebra in Computer Science

            CALCO Early Ideas Workshop

               September 2, 2013

                 Warsaw, Poland


   Submission deadline for short contributions: 27 May 2013


CALCO 2013 will be preceded by the CALCO Early Ideas Workshop,
dedicated to presentation of work in progress and original research
proposals. PhD students and young researchers are particularly
encouraged to contribute. Attendance at the workshop is open to all -
it is anticipated that many CALCO conference participants will want to
attend the CALCO Early Ideas workshop (and vice versa).

The CALCO Early Ideas Workshop invites submissions on the same topics
as the CALCO conference: reporting results of theoretical work on the
mathematics of algebras and coalgebras, the way these results can
support methods and techniques for software development, as well as
experience with the transfer of the resulting technologies into
industrial practice. The list of topics of particular interest is
shown on the main CALCO 2013 page: http://coalg.org/calco13/.

CALCO Early Ideas presentations will be selected according to
originality, significance, and general interest, on the basis of
submitted 2-page short contributions.  It can be work in progress, a
summary of work submitted to a conference or workshop elsewhere, or
work that in some other way might be interesting to the CALCO
audience. A booklet with the accepted short contributions will be
available at the workshop.

Submissions will be handled via EasyChair
The use of LNCS style is strongly encouraged.

After the workshop, authors will have the opportunity to submit a full
10-15 page paper on the same topic. The reviewing will be carried out
by the CALCO Early Ideas PC, with the support of the CALCO PC. The
volume of selected papers will be made available in the arXiv and on
the CALCO pages. Authors will retain copyright, and are also encouraged
to disseminate the results by subsequent publication elsewhere.


There will be a number of student grants available for the CALCO
conference - details shortly to be announced on the webpage.

3) LPAR-19 CFP and Workshops

                       1st CALL FOR PAPERS

                The 19th International Conference on
      Logic for Programming, Artificial Intelligence and Reasoning

             Stellenbosch, South Africa, 14-19 December 2013

This is the first call for papers for LPAR-19 and a call for workshop
proposals. Information about workshop proposals is included at the end
of this call.

The series of International Conferences on Logic for Programming, Artificial
Intelligence and Reasoning (LPAR) is a forum where, year after year, some of
the most renowned researchers in the areas of logic, automated reasoning,
computational logic, programming languages and their applications come to
present cutting-edge results, to discuss advances in these fields, and to
exchange ideas in a scientifically emerging part of the world. The 19th LPAR
will be held in Stellenbosch, South Africa.

Logic is a fundamental organizing principle in nearly all areas in Computer
Science. It runs a multifaceted gamut from the foundational to the applied.
At one extreme, it underlies computability and complexity theory and the formal
semantics of programming languages. At the other extreme, it drives billions of
gates every day in the digital circuits of processors of all kinds. Logic is in
itself a powerful programming paradigm, but it is also the quintessential
specification language for anything ranging from real-time critical systems to
networked infrastructures. Logical techniques link implementation and
specification through formal methods such as 
automated theorem proving and model
checking. Logic is also the stuff of knowledge representation and artificial
intelligence. Because of its ubiquity, logic has acquired a central role in
Computer Science education.

New results in the fields of computational logic and applications are welcome.
Also welcome are more exploratory presentations, which may examine open
questions and raise fundamental concerns about existing theories and practices.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Abduction and interpolation methods
* Automated reasoning
* Constraint programming
* Decision procedures
* Description logics
* Foundations of security
* Hardware verification
* Implementations of logic
* Interactive theorem proving
* Knowledge representation and reasoning
* Logic and computational complexity
* Logic and databases
* Logic and games
* Logic and machine learning
* Logic and the web
* Logic and types
* Logic in artificial intelligence
* Logic of distributed systems
* Logic programming
* Logical aspects of concurrency
* Logical foundations of programming
* Modal and temporal logics
* Model checking
* Non-monotonic reasoning
* Ontologies and large knowledge bases
* Probabilistic and fuzzy reasoning
* Program analysis
* Rewriting
* Satisfiability checking
* Satisfiability modulo theories
* Software verification
* Specification using logic
* Unification theory

Programme Chairs
* Ken McMillan
* Aart Middeldorp
* Andrei Voronkov

Conference Chairs
* Bernd Fischer
* Geoff Sutcliffe

Workshop Chair
* Laura Kovacs

4) ADDCT 2013: Automated Deduction: Decidability, 
Complexity, Tractability, Lake Placid NY (U.S.A.), 10 June 2013

                    CALL FOR PAPERS
Automated Deduction: Decidability, Complexity, Tractability
                   (ADDCT 2013)

Workshop affiliated with CADE-24, Lake Placid, 10.06.2013
Important Dates
8 April  2013: Paper submission (extended)
30 April 2013: Notification
10 May   2013: Final version
10 June  2013: Workshop

Decidability, and especially complexity and tractability of logical
theories is extremely important for a large number of applications.
Although predicate logic and number theory are undecidable, decidable
theories or decidable theory fragments often occur in mathematics,
in program verification, in the verification of reactive, real time
or hybrid systems, as well as in databases and ontologies.

It is therefore important to identify such decidable fragments and to
design efficient decision procedures for them. It is equally important
to have uniform methods (e.g. resolution, rewriting, tableaux, sequent
calculi) which can be tuned to provide algorithms with optimal complexity.

The goal of ADDCT is to bring together researchers interested in
- identifying (fragments of) logical theories which are decidable,
identifying fragments thereof which have low complexity, and
analyzing possibilities of obtaining optimal complexity results
with uniform tools;
- analyzing decidability in combinations of theories and possibilities
of combining decision procedures;
- efficient implementations for decidable fragments;
- application domains where decidability resp. tractability are crucial.

Topics of interest for ADDCT include (but are not restricted to):

- Decidability:
- decision procedures based on logical calculi such as:
   resolution, rewriting, tableaux, sequent calculi, or natural deduction
- decidability in combinations of logical theories
- Complexity:
- complexity analysis for fragments of first- (or higher) order logic
- complexity analysis for combinations of logical theories
   (including parameterized complexity results)
- Tractability (in logic, automated reasoning, algebra, ...)

- Application domains for which complexity issues are essential
(verification, security, databases, ontologies, ...)

The goal of ADDCT is to bring together researchers interested in exploring
the topics above, both at a theoretical level and motivated by applications.

Submissions are encouraged in one of the following categories:

- Original papers (up to 15 pages, LNCS style, including bibliography);
should describe original research and contain sufficient detail to
assess the merits and relevance of the contribution.
Simultaneous submission of material is prohibited.

- Work in progress (up to 6 pages, LNCS style, without bibliography).

- Presentation-only papers: may describe work previously published,
and will not be inserted in the proceedings. We are allowing the
submission of previously published work in order to allow researchers
to communicate good ideas that the attendees may not be aware of.

Given the informal style of the workshop, the submission of papers
presenting student's work and work in progress is encouraged.

Submission of papers is via EasyChair at

The final versions of the selected contributions will be collected in a
volume to be distributed at the workshop and made accessible on the web.

7) Submission deadline extension: Machines, Computations and Universality 2013

The deadline for submissions has been extended to April 14.

                   CALL FOR PAPERS

Machines, Computations and Universality (MCU) 2013, the 6th conference
in the MCU series, will be hosted at the University of Zurich on
September 9-12, 2013.



MCU explores computation in the setting of various discrete models
(Turing machines, register machines, cellular automata, tile assembly
systems, rewriting systems, neural models etc.) and analog and hybrid
models (BSS machines, infinite time cellular automata, real machines,
quantum computing etc.). There is particular (but not exclusive)
emphasis given towards the following:

1. the search for frontiers between decidability and undecidability in
the various models. (For example, what is the smallest number of pairs
of words for which the Post correspondence problem is undecidable, or
what is the largest state-symbol product for which the halting problem
is decidable for Turing machines?)

2. the search for the simplest universal models (such as small universal
Turing machines, universal rewriting systems with few rules, universal
cellular automata with small neighborhoods and a small number of states,

3. the computational complexity of predicting the evolution of
computations in the various models. (For example, is it possible to
predict an arbitrary number of time steps for a model more efficiently
than explicit step by step simulation of the model?)

4. universality and undecidability in continuous models of computation.

Subject: Phd positions in Human Brain Project (Principles of Brain

We are inviting applications for Phd positions at the Graz University of
Technology (Faculty for Computer Science) for research on

      Principles of Brain Computation

in the Human Brain Project http://www.humanbrainproject.eu/
and in the EU-Project BrainScaleS

The Human Brain Project is expected to start on October 1, and our Lab
will lead research on principles of brain computation in this project.
We can employ Phd students already now for closely related work in the
BrainScales project  (this project provides intermediate financing until
the beginning of the Human Brain Project).

The Phd students will investigate computational properties and learning
features of data-based models for cortical microcircuits, through
computer simulations and theoretical analysis. Excellent research
skills, a genuine interest in answering fundamental open questions about
information processing in the brain, and the capability to work in an
interdisciplinary research team are expected. Experience in programming,
computer simulations or data analysis will be helpful.

Applications are invited by students with a master degree in one of the
areas computer science (especially machine learning, software design,
large-scale simulations), physics, mathematics, statistics, and
computational neuroscience. Our doctoral program will lead to a Phd in
Computer Science.

Please send your CV, information about your grades, and a letter
describing your scientific interests to my assistant Regina Heidinger:

               regina.heidinger at igi.tugraz.at

MFCS 2013 - Call for Papers

38th International Symposium on Mathematical Foundations of Computer Science

August 26 - 30, 2013, IST Austria, Klosterneuburg, Austria



The series of MFCS symposia, organized since 
1972, has a long and well-established tradition. 
The MFCS symposia encourage high-quality research 
in all branches of theoretical computer science. 
Their broad scope provides an opportunity to 
bring together researchers who do not usually 
meet at specialized conferences. Quality papers 
presenting original research on theoretical 
aspects of computer science are solicited.


Principal topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
- algorithmic game theory,
- algorithmic learning theory,
- algorithms and data structures (incl. 
sequential, parallel, distributed, approximation,

11) Call for Papers MeCBIC 2013 -- workshop ICALP, Riga, 7th July

                      Call for Papers
                        MeCBIC 2013
              7th Workshop on Membrane Computing
            and Biologically Inspired Process Calculi
              7th July 2013, Riga , Latvia


***  Paper Submission:  22nd April, 2013

The 7th Workshop on Membrane Computing and Biologically Inspired
Process Calculi (MeCBIC 2013) will take place in Riga on 7th July 2013
as a related event of ICALP 2013, the 40th International Colloquium on
Automata, Languages and Programming. (http://www.icalp2013.lu.lv/)

If your work is related to MeCBIC topics, it is now a good opportunity
to submit a paper (of about 16 pages), using the web page

The modeling and the analysis of biological systems has attracted the
interest of several research communities. The main aim of the workshop
is to bring together researchers in concurrency theory, formal
methods, and related fields that are interested to present recent
results and to discuss new ideas concerning such formalisms, their
properties and relationships. We welcome contributions that address
both theoretical and applied contributions related to the relevance
and potential of formal methods in biology. Topics of interest include
(but not limited to):

- Biologically inspired models and calculi (rewrite systems, process
calculi, Petri nets, etc.);
- Theoretical links and comparison of different biological inspired
formal models;
- Qualitative biological modeling;
- Quantitative formal methods;
- Modelling, analysis and simulation tools for biologically inspired systems.

The workshop proceedings will be published in the Electronic
Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science. After the event, papers
presented at the workshop will be invited to be furtherly extended and
submitted to a special issue of a visible journal (indexed by DBLP,
SCOPUS, Web of Science, etc)

12) CiE 2013: Call for Informal Presentations

COMPUTABILITY IN EUROPE 2013: The Nature of Computation
                     Milan, Italy
                   July  1 - 5, 2013



There is a remarkable difference in conference style between computer
science and mathematics conferences. Mathematics conferences allow for
informal presentations that are prepared very shortly before the conference
and inform the participants about current research and work in progress. The
format of computer science conferences with pre-conference proceedings is
not able to accommodate this form of scientific communication.

Continuing the tradition of past CiE conferences, this year's CiE conference
endeavours to get the best of both worlds. In addition to the formal
presentations based on our LNCS proceedings volume, we invite researchers to
present informal presentations. For this, please send us a brief description
of your talk (between one paragraph and one page) by the DEADLINE:

MAY 31, 2013

Please submit your abstract electronically, via EasyChair
, selecting the category
"Informal Presentation".

You will be notified whether your talk has been accepted for informal
presentation usually within a week after your submission.

If you intend to apply for the ASL Student Travel Award, you might need us
to confirm that your are going to give a presentation at CiE 2013
(applications of students who are presenting get higher priority).
Therefore, we would like to ask you to submit your informal presentations by
26 March so that we can send you the notification before the ASL deadline of
1 April 2013.


Grants for students, members of the ASL:

The Association for Symbolic Logic  before the deadline of
April 1, 2013.

EACTS Students

The European Association for Theoretical Computer Science has decided to
sponsor all students that are EATCS members and willing to attend CiE2013.
The early registration fee for EATCS students is 30?Ǩ cheaper than the one
for non-members.



19th International Workshop on
Cellular Automata and Discrete Complex Systems

September 17 - 19, 2013, Giessen, Germany


* Submission deadline (full papers): April 15, 2013
* Submission deadline (exploratory papers): July 15, 2013
* Notification to authors (full papers): June 10, 2013
* Final version: July 8, 2013
* Conference: September 17 - 19, 2013


Papers presenting original and unpublished research on all
fundamental aspects of cellular automata and related discrete
complex systems are sought. Topics of interest include (but are
not limited to): dynamics, topological, ergodic and algebraic
aspects, algorithmic and complexity issues, emergent properties,
formal language processing, symbolic dynamics, models of
parallelism and distributed systems, phenomenological
descriptions, scientific modeling and practical applications.
Papers authored or co-authored by PC members are welcome and
will follow a specific evaluation process.


There are two paper categories - full and exploratory
contributions. Full papers are meant to report more complete and
denser research, while the later submission deadline of
exploratory papers allows quick reporting of most recent
discoveries, work-in-progress and/or partial results. Papers in
the full paper category are refereed and selected by the program
committee. Papers in the exploratory category go through a less
rigorous evaluation for suitability. Full papers receive a longer
time slot for presentation in the workshop.


Papers have a page limit of 14 pages (full paper category) or
8 pages (exploratory paper category), they must be formatted in
LaTeX using the LNCS format
(see http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs/lncs+authors),
and must be submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF). Authors
are invited to submit original papers using EasyChair.org, at


The submission may contain an appendix that exceeds the page
limit if the author wants to provide the PC with more details
than allowed by the strict paper limit. The appendix will not
be published in the proceedings. The papers must not have been
submitted simultaneously to other conferences with published
proceedings. All accepted papers must be presented at the


Papers in the full paper category will be published in the
LNCS series of Springer and the proceedings will be available
at the conference venue. Exploratory papers will be published
in local proceedings and will be also available at the conference.

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended
and improved version of their contribution to a special issue of
the Journal of Cellular Automata and another international journal
depending on the number and the subject of the papers accepted.

The workshop will host the annual meeting of the IFIP Working
group 1.5 on  Cellular Automata and Discrete Complex Systems.

15) First announcement: Heterotic computing, 7-8 Nov 2013

[From Viv Kendon, Angelika Sebald, Susan Stepney]

Dear Colleagues,

We would like to announce and invite you to 
participate in a Theo Murphy Discussion Meeting 
at the Royal Society's Chicheley Hall 7-8 November 2013.

** Heterotic computing: exploiting hybrid computational devices **

Current computational theory deals almost 
exclusively with single models: classical, 
neural, analogue, quantum, etc.  In practice, 
researchers use ad hoc combinations, realising 
only recently that they can be fundamentally more 
powerful than the individual parts.  This meeting 
brings together theorists and practitioners of 
various types of computing, to engage in 
combining the individual strengths to produce powerful new heterotic devices.
